Join Couchsurfing to see Ulf’s full profile. It’s free!
a) the "My Home" section of my profile (e.g. to check on what dates I cannot host and more!):
b) my NEGATIVE REFERENCES (I'm awfully proud of them!!!):
c) TO BE MORE SUCCESSFUL ON CS IN GENERAL:
Oh so European,
a little bit impatient,
definitely extremely liberal,
at quite some times quite funny,
really very scarily hairy here and there,
(even still!) a little bit overweight on certain parts
Hardly ever boring but sometimes perhaps a tad irritating...
ALSO I feel awkward being around people with nobody saying a word - so if you don't speak and tell me anything interesting, then I will!
ALL THE TIME!
Those who like to take offense (we have plenty of them on CS...) take offense with what I do and say easily.
BUT usually I do NOT INTEND to offend - but, ON THE CONTRARY, get pissed by people being so daft, pretentious and just idiotic PC-fetishists that they do take offense that easily all the time!
WATCH THESE 2 John Cleese Interviews on PoliticalCorrectness and Sensitives sickening Societies:
To be clear: I consider this (especially in the US and thus on CS prevailing) "faith in 'The Church of Neatness'" - aka: following the ideas and principles of "Political Correctness" and "Non Violent Communication" - very, very retarded and nothing but a phony farce!
To me it seems very obvious, that most of its followers - especially all those CS wonks - are so strictly faithful to the rules of these two schools (and that so very publicly!) first and foremost to make themselves look and feel like better persons.
AND I BLAME THEM FOR HAVING MADE SUCH PHONY, LAUGHABLE, RETARDED, PRIMITIVE, FILTHY and overall DESPICABLE SCUM LIKE TRUMP, the Philippines' Duterte, all the right-wing demagogues in Europe and other STINKING ASSHOLES LIKE THEM POSSIBLE IN THE FIRST PLACE (for people feel attracted to them because they're just sick and tired of that idiotic PC crap and THEREFORE "like that different breeze"!).
I on the other hand believe much more in honesty and straightforwardness.
So when you do or say something that I consider stupid, then I'll call it stupid - and not say: "I'm not sure I understand you correctly..."; and when I think you lie, then I'll call that a "lie" - and not an "exaggeration" (both of which has been "suggested" to me by some CS patronizers - aka "moderators", "administrators" or "Safety Team" members).
Live with that or leave me alone - I do not make concessions on this.
I react rather angrily and rather intolerant to ignorance and hypocrisy!
And unfortunately I often suck at realizing that I might be "better" or "faster" a certain things than others or that some things just come easier to me (just as it is the opposite way around with other things). And then by expecting the same from others which I would expect from myself - or by being as demanding to them as I know I can be to myself - I might ask too much of others and consequently irritate, intimidate or alienate them...
I'm sorry about that and I try to be less like this - but regularly fail. If you can be lenient with me on that, then this would be awesome!
If you wanna find out MORE ABOUT me - ESPECIALLY MORE ABOUT ME THAT OTHERS SEE VERY NEGATIVELY - then check out "The Gay Devil's Box" (in black) on my "Old-Style CS profile":
"Jeder Jeck ess anders"
("Every loony is different")

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
* NOT TO "MAKE THIS WORLD A BETTER PLACE"!
* NOR TO "FACILITATE CULTURAL UNDERSTANDING"!!
* AND NEITHER OUT OF GENEROSITY or ALTRUISM!!!
I like to try to contribute to making this world a better place...
But people who claim that they host CS'ers or surf couches themselves for that reason are (IMHO) in so far pretentious idiots who are craving for meaning (as we all are) but fail at doing so in any real and actually meaningful way. So they go for that fake alternative (pretending that being on CS makes them "better people") - since they are either too inept, too egoistic, too prissy or too slothful (or all of that) to ACTUALLY, REALLY "do good"!
For such pretentious Goodhumans there's https://www.bewelcome.org/ - and I do NOT have a profile there for a reason!
If you wanna make the world a better place (take a look at yourself and make that change and) join Greenpeace or Amnesty International or Unicef or Médecins Sans Frontières etc.
If you wanna be generous or altruistic then take in some refugees (and vote for the political parties that really wanna help those poor bastards!) or give a dime to a bum (or some booze - to make him forget about the misery of his life for a little while!) and so on.
But cut out that crap about being on CS for "doing good"
I'm on Couchsurfing...
* BECAUSE IT IS FUN TO HOST and to surf and to go CS events!
* meeting new people is INTERESTING!
* COOKING with people and then EATING together is pure pleasure!
* ending up HAVING SEX with people feels great and is good for your immune system!
* talking people into having their first SAUNA or first KIT KAT CLUB PARTY or so (and thus opening up a whole new world for them) gives me the nice feeling of having done something genuinely kind!
* BOOZING together is often HILLARIOUS!
* TALKING to people is usually interesting and often informative!
* "FREELOADERS" WELCOME!!! Fuck all those self-righteous freeloaders bashers - I like the idea that by providing FREE ACCOMMODATION (yep! JUST THAT!) CS (with me as a CS host) enables people to travel who couldn't afford to do so otherwise:-)
There you have it!
That's it! Just that!
But that's more than telly can give you - and definitely better than being home alone after work;-)
(And facilitating cultural understanding and making the world a better place and all that just happens on the side then;-P)
Politics & History
Having a Kölsch or two (or three...) or -if need be- some other kind of beer with friends,
Traveling to other places, meeting foreigners and learning about customs, opinions and ways of life which are different to mine
Music, Movies, and Books
If that REALLY interests you then see my "Old-Style CS profile":
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Lot's of little things with all the kids who actually added so much to make my life such an awesome life so far:
* my group kids (during my many years as a leader with a Catholic youth group)
* all my babysitter kids I took care of for more than 15 years including and especially my Godson Jakob
* and - most of all! - since May 2003 my nephew and Godson Peter and since October 2006 my other nephew Paul!
The "Angels Landing" trail in Zion National Park
Some unusual sex experiences
Paragliding above the Gulf of California at the beach right in front of our beautifully located hotel in Mazatlan AND tandem parachute jump during sunset on Oahu, Hawaii
World Youth Day's ("The Pope invites the Youth of the World...") 2002 in Toronto and especially playing a (smaller) role in the organization of WYD'05 in Cologne
The Grand Canyon
For a night at a gay sauna in Berlin being the "guinea pig" for a gay friend of mine, who wanted to proof to me that (t)his Freudian theory is true, according to which I (just like every straight guy) by nature would be "a bit" gay, too ;-)
FIFA WorldCup Germany 2006
For so far 11 awesome Carnivals in Cologne hosting a few hundred CouchSurfers that surfed and partied with me for that:-)
AND BEST OF ALL:
Using Open Couch Request ("Travel Itinerary") to find a host for the Tallinn Sauna Camp in Early 2013
Teach, Learn, Share
IRONY and SARCASM!
(You might honestly believe that you don't need to learn anything about that... BUT after more than 12 years on CS by now I assure you that an incredibly ginormous amount of CS'ers ARE IN DESPERATE NEED OF LEARNING ABOUT THIS - cause they're pathetic amateurs about that!!!)
Open Relationships, Swinging and all that Jazz
Cologne (and OUR (!) Carnival !)
Digital Video Editing
Traveling on a shoe-string in Europe using low-cost airlines and online train offers etc.
