Pardon me, I can't host you. Yet, I know I'll get a 10 requests a day. Yikes! You are not a hipster just because you are willing to stay somewhere for FREE!! Stop watching TV, playing video games and surfing the web 24/7 looking for great deals.
Live your life and get involved in the communities you travel. Learn to exchange meaningful values and not just be a vulture.
My primary reason for being on CS is to meet LIKEMINDED PEOPLE. The secondary reason is to help people out. I use the emergency forums and take in people who need help. I will usually host someone in Vancouver for business/family reasons because I know how hard it is to travel for a commitment but not be able to afford the hotel.
So to conclude, I am a human with interests and although those interests might be out of the comfort zone of a lot of people, that's the way it is. I appreciate messages from like minded people who want to stay or meet for a drink etc. I don't appreciate single, ugly ppl with lame profiles just sending me requests to help them party.
If you have read and appreciated my profile, send me a message and say why I should host you. I host about 1 in 100 requests simply because they are usually spam, generic requests and have not read the profile.
Honestly, I like scaring surfers. Boo! There should be no expectations when you surf, anything you get besides a roof over your head is a bonus. If you write me a reference while traveling, I'll write you a negative reference. I don't really care about your references ( most of them are boring. ) You should write a reference only if you want and after your travels. This copy and paste couchsurf request phenomenon is insulting all the while polluting couchsurfing and making it a Facebook style inauthentic experience ( and boring. ). Listen, without people willing to host then this community ceases to exist. Not only do I not want you but neither will couchsurfing management. If you don't get it then you have never hosted and you are probably lame, very lame. This isn't what couchsurfing was intended to accomplish. I don't want to host you if you spend no time with me or you are just interested in shopping and posting instagram photos. I know if you didn't photograph it, it never ever happened. You want to be a lame tourist like everyone else then get a hotel like everyone else. Besides, if you want to be a commercial tourist then spend money on a hotel. You know help the economy in the country you staying, I think it's illegal not to have money available in an outside country. Don't worry I won't steal your money I will eat it and then organically redeliver it to you. I compost, buddy. Im not uber evil! Those lame material possessions will be harder to grab if everyone becomes an opportunist that undercuts business through things like airbnb and evil, uber evil. Business creates jobs, blogs create fashionistas. We can't all be fashionistas otherwise there will be no more fashionistas! The horror! If all you are about is FREE, FREE, FREE then you are a big problem for society and lazy. I had one couchsurfer that reveled in cheating and stealing, not paying for transit fare, etc. I'm sorry but that's disgusting and kind of morally reprehensible even for a couchsurfer. It is very easy for me to tell whom reads my profile besides the requests being disingenuous. My profile is insane yet I get the most calculated and phony mantra requests thrown at me. I hate robots unless you are my controlled robot! A few recent bad experiences have jaded me on this whole amazing idea. :( I am a prideful guy that likes to volunteer, get involved in politics, rallies and have a deep appreciation for the animal kingdom ( a lazy vegetarian ) That being said, I WILL NOT HOST YOU! BUGGER OFF!! That means NO!!
Any lame couchsurf request will be met with hostility. You need to earn it with cookies.
My goal is to meet a character and get cultured or just make my own culture of people, you will be my robot. No cultural exchange then that equals slavery.. Roar.
I'm an escaped Quebecois that wishes to see and learn from all types of ppl not just the ones that made me feel comfortable during my early years.
Try to feed me poutine and I will feed you poison.
CS seems like a harbinger of many great experiences. I only want involvement in this world of CS'ers and not be left behind.
I leave you behind.. behind my metophorical walls of hipster hell!
Doing things on my own terms always appealed to me. Sometimes, you need to drift away from conventional rules and as Frank has said, "Do it my WAY"
I eat Cats, I mean. This is Vancouver, leave your cats at home. Notice there are no cats here? Because I ate them.
La vie est belle.
Yes, big and beautiful bags of cats in my freezer. I'm like an Chinese restaurant although I'm vegetarian (cats and birds are only things,) I don't need freezer space. And you won't need to visit a Chinese restaurant on your stay.
Offended yet?! Good. I don't like you already.
Live ur life, don't just survive. We were not meant to be caged, human or animal. I don't believe in captivity. You need to eat ur way through life until you reach the chewy center.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Teach, Learn, Share
Its not what u have or what u need but where r you going?
Hopefully for you it's not on East Hastings. I do give great tours, however, I must sacrifice at least one person for the toll to pass. I should put an asterisk next to that. Must be travelling with companion for East Hastings tour.
What I Can Share with Hosts
I believe in karma and returning the favour. A dirty couch for dirty couchsurfers. This isn't airbnb, if you can't take the heat stay out of the couchsurfing community and go wear your skinny jeans and lip gloss near a yacht club.
