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.

Hobbies

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

Tips

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.

Good Afternoon Kirk,

Thanks for getting back to me.

I think, this is the best option for me to just wait for next year to join that course.

Will I be notify when the course available? Or do I need to search on the home page.

Many thanks

Hello Babydoll,

I expect we'll be announcing it in our newsletter, which you could subscribe to. It's a monthly newsletter, so you won't get lots and lots of emails from us. We'll probably also mention it on the homepage, so you could also just keep looking there. I expect it will be sometime in the middle of January, though I can't promise this.

You're also welcome to ask me in a comment on this or any other page if you don't see any announcements.

Glad that you are interested in it!

All the best,

Kirk

I don't know. I haven't used the dating app yet. If I used it, maybe I would have many friends.

Nowadays, due the pandemic, many people are bored. They always feel lonely, disappointed,... However, technologys hepl them. Some dating apps are very useful, but not all dating apps are good, so we need independent, freezom. We can be watching movie, listening music or hang out with our friends, we needd to relieve stress. Recently, i use a dating app, its name is slowly, you can converse with people in the world. You don't need to spend a lot of time on this time because it's slowly every you send a letter to your friend.

I think dating app have pros & cons. One of pros is that those apps can help, especially a person who have a shy and introvert personality, to meet people and start a relationship. On the other hand a con could be that you will meet a person completely different that he/her told you....but if you never try you never know :) ( I hope he/her will not be a serial killer)
In conclusion dating app could be a great way to meet people particularly of other countries but only if it is used with consciousness

No I don't like dating app, I prefere meeting people in my way , it not confident to talk with someone you don't know anything about him , when you meet people sometimes the first sights can told a lot about him

For me, I never try to use the app. But I think might be good for someone. Who are want to meet with new people or new content to share or improve the language.

Our culture here isn't allow such these apps because some kinds of it a nudy scenes and almost all dating apps have some sexuality relationships, so we can't use these apps.
