My profile

About me

By day I'm a regular guy and by night a superhero … How tiring is that?!

Just joking! I'm a regular guy all the time, good job, close to my family, just bought my own flat with a cat. Actually, my cat thinks I'm a hero because I saved her from the street. I'm a talkative person and I believe communication is the most important thing in a relationship.

Likes and dislikes

I love pizza if it's Italian, wine if it's white, and football if it's the World Cup. I read a lot, especially true life stories, but most of my books live on my phone.


I love to travel and I'm always planning my next trip. I prefer an active holiday like hiking, skiing or watersports and I get bored lying on the beach. I post lots of photos on Instagram as I'm a good photographer but I'd really love to share the holiday with someone. Maybe you'll take the photos on the next trip. wink


1. Write about your good points, not your bad points.

2. Don’t include every single thing. Choose a few points and focus on them.

3. Don’t add your contact details (e.g. address, phone number). You could get unwanted messages.

4. Check your spelling and punctuation before you post.

5. You can use punctuation and emojis when you’re joking, e.g. ?! and wink.

Hello evrybody
Dating apps are pleasant way to commnicated withe other people in diffrent places. but in my opinion they are jus usefull for hobby, and we should management time when used them.

I am Dawn. I live in Beirut, where we struggle every day of heavy jams.

Hi everyone . Thanks for this space for learn to write in English. I'm a talkative persons. I job in Ecuador as teacher in the methodology area. In my free times, I prefer watch tv, specifically documental series and religious program because I learn about cultural behaviors, intertinsg places and other cultures. I like meeting with my friends and coworker for prepare a good food and tell us jokes.

Hi everyone!

So, I think that dating apps can be good when we are alone in a different place. But, we should have care with them, because they can be dangers. I never had a profile on dating apps, because before that, I found my love.

Hello Everyone
pepole who prefer this way for finding love usually pretend is rapid, direct and therefore you gain on time and efficacity about get what you desire.
For those who say there are more often fake and no serious person behind the profils , I would say there is not more guaranty when you meet someone in road, night club etc.. he/she may be also a dangerous person, as may testify lot of awful stories you hear everday in media.
So for me whatever you decide to look for love the most important thing is to be careful and feel well and happy


Why not "I love travelling" at the place of "I love to travel" as it is written?

Hello Didi,

After verbs like love, like, hate and dislike we can use either the gerund (-ing form) or the infinitive.

The difference in meaning is quite subtle. The -ing form tends to focus more on the action and suggests enjoyment of the experience, while the infinitive is more focused on the result or outcome of the action, and is often used to talk about habits or preferences.
