Join Couchsurfing to see Mattias’s full profile. It’s free!
I new to CS, some old guy reccomended it to me of all people.
Please read my profile, because I worked hard at it, and me, I ALWAYS read profiles. I know it's f***ing boring for most people these days to read anything longer than 4 sentences, but look, do you want to waste only a few minutes reading about me or a few hours meeting me, only to find you don't enjoy my company?
Here is a totally honest and open description of me as I am, without wanting to impress or be cool.
I want to respect you by being as honest as possible. I have lived my life until recently in a really shy, reclusive and withdrawn shell, therefore I don't see what I have to lose by being honest...
...The ones you love, are the ones who love you.
By being honest about me, we both save each other's time. You know what I am, and you will know if you either like me or don't like me. I have learned and now accept that I must face rejection from many in order to meet people with whom I can have a great affinity. That's life, no matter who you are, you're just going to not have an affinity with everyone. By being totally honest about yourself, you will be either...
1) Deliciously attractive for some people or
2) Disgustingly repulsive.
I did the Myer Briggs personality test, and I am apparently INFP (an introvert).
I am not any of these things like "open-minded" or "easy-going" or any of these cliché things that are said on Couchsurfing. And my philosophy of life is certainly not "carpe diem". Also, I do not "like to try new things", like a lot of people say here... Ok, I DID try things like magic mushrooms, pure drops of cannabis, hash-hish and stuff, but THAT'S ALL! No more! I don't want to try any more new things!
I will not describe myself because you will surely invent those descriptions yourself just for me after you read this.
I only believe in changing myself in order to have an affect on the world, therefore I do not believe in "changing/saving the world". The human race is on a very slow path of evolution. I prefer wisdom over idealism, because unfortunately I find that idealism doesn't take the human condition into account. Please don't think that is cynicism and think that I have turned into an old man who has lost his youthful freshness for life, I have not, and will never grow "old", yet despite that I prefer to seek wisdom rather than idealism. Universal rather than relative. Oh and I'm not an anarchist...
....I am however a bad patriarchal motherfucker! MWAHAHAHAHAH!...
...That was a joke. Imagine Mattias the Patriarchal Policeman!...
..."Okay ma'am! You can keep your armpit hair, but the next time I am on patrol, those legs had better be shaved!" hehehehe.
I have stopped believing in life purpose. I just don't feel that there is something I have to DO in this world, as though some Divine power put me here to do this. I believe my life is already complete by being dedicated to becoming more wise and aware.
I have an over-active imagination, full of little stories inside, but I often feel too shy to share this part of me. I am working on allowing my inner child to shine through.
I do not drink alcohol at all, and I don't like the "night life". I want to avoid bars, discos and places like that. I say this because it is an important part for many Couchsurfers, and if it is, you may not want to meet me.
You know what I do like? Fabric stores! Some people like museums to satisfy their eyes. Others like music scenes to please their ears. Me, I love the feeling of fabrics, to satisfy my fingers and skin... Silk, velvet, leather, wool, all those things! I like to feel these things, as it makes me feel delicious inside! oooohhhh yes! I hope to meet people who also like this kind of thing, because I have yet to meet anyone who shares this!
I also like to dance free-style to music in my own private space and sometimes in front of people in public, and you don't have to do it with me, but I just want to put it out there for all to see, in case you like to dance too.
I don't believe in the moral "good" or "bad", but instead I believe in "positive" or "negative", "constructive" or "destructive". What works, works, and what doesn't work, doesn't work.
I am not politically correct (my sense of humour reflects this) and do not accept beliefs just because they are populist, politically correct or vogue, but I do not call myself "right-wing" or "conservative". I don't accept arbitrary racism, homophobia or misogyny, and none will be tolerated with me. But I don't like those people who are "sensitive" and can't take a joke about anything. I like to speak my mind.
I also want to say that I am a bigot, racist, fascist and neo-Nazi...
As far as I have understood, that is someone who has his own mind and likes to question the consistency and truth of ideologies that SAY they are for a good cause and who want to make a better world, but in reality act in ways that are hypocritical, inconsistent, that are full of double standards and that actually disguise a desire for power, control, sanctimoniousness and absolute conformity, and someone who REALLY pisses off those people who don't agree with every single thing they say or think. As a result he gets no chance to express his opinion to them, despite saying they are for "tolerance". I like to make fun of such people, because it's really fun and they are so easy to annoy! That's right, I'm talking to YOU Social Justice Warriors and "Progressives"!
I have a dirty sense of humour, mixed with black and observational humour, and therefore I prefer to be with people who can laugh at this type of humour and who are not afraid of being a little offensive and naughty in our own private space, therefore we can plot our little conspiracies against the big gray monster machine that is political correctness! hehehehehe. Don't worry! Nobody will know! I won't tell if you don't!
This is also going to be very unusual to say, but I wanna say it anyway...
...I like affection. Yes, I said it. I like affection (hugs, cuddles) with both men and women, because it helps me to feel more connected and helps me to bond better to people, feel more at ease and safe, and affection is something that is really important to me. Understand that as you will, this is what I like and what I want in my social life.
That's right, I admit it... I'm a cuddle slut!
However, if you don't like that, because a lot of people don't, then I don't want you to do something that you're not comfortable with. I just want to say it, and you're also free to change your mind if you feel more comfortable with me. I know and respect boundaries, and people feel different around different people. They are very sensitive. I know extremely well what it is like. I am fine to NOT have any touch, because some people are just NOT nice to touch!
I started going to "cuddle parties" a few months ago and it has changed me in ways I could not imagine before, when I used to be really timid and hardly touch anyone.
If you are STILL reading this, then you probably ARE open-minded! hehehe, congratulations!
I should say also that I prefer to be with women, obviously because I like women and I find them attractive, and find it easier to talk to them and be around them. HOWEVER if you are a guy and you really like and resonate with what you read and the impression you get from me, then it would be great to hear from you, because I just want to feel easy and relaxed around others.
Still reading? Good, because this is the end.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
Yeah good question, because I find CS is losing its spirit. I don't know how to answer this.
Well, the people I stayed with I really all enjoyed, except one, well, look, he was an extremely nice guy, but you see, he kind of tried to fuck me and I did not want that! But all in all, Couchsurfing has been a blessing!
