Wants to Meet Up

Join Couchsurfing to see Mattias’s full profile. It’s free!
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 pretence.
I want to respect you by being as honest as possible, in a way that is appropriate of course. In this way 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.
Most people present themselves in ways that prove they are trying to please as much of the public as possible. I do the opposite. I allow others not to like me at all, not because I am some "special" or "cool" guy, but because I really value quality of life, and especially a quality social life, and I am sure you feel the same. We all want to be accepted and feel safe to be ourselves, sure, but we need to be willing to be open for all to see for that to happen.
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.
I'm not a "citizen of the world", not because it is a bad idea but because it doesn't work, and is unrealistic. Also, I don't believe in " love" or "peace" as political slogans, because again, it does not work and does not respect the human condition that is the world or the reality of politics, and for now, I do not see the world going in a good direction in the short-term, however, in the long-term I believe we will learn from the blunders we have made.
Unfortunately the only things we can change are ourselves. 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". I prefer wisdom over idealism. 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, yet despite that I prefer to seek wisdom rather than idealism. 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.
Back to serious.
I honestly 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 do not drink alcohol at all, and I don't like the "night life", therefore I want to avoid bars, discos and places like that. Therefore it is essential that the people I am with enjoy also things that do not involve alcohol. Just let me know what you most like to do outside of "night life" and I am sure we can find something we both like. I believe that it is not about what we do, it is about the quality of the company we keep. However I say this because it is an important part for many Couchsurfers, and if it is, you may not want to meet me.
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.
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 to cuddle people. Yes, I said it. I am hetrosexual but I like to cuddle 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.
However, if you don't like that idea, then I don't want you to do something that you're not comfortable with. I just want to say it.
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 reading this after I said "I like to cuddle people", 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 fantastic to hear from you. I would love to meet you too, someone to enjoy the company and hugely bond with.
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!

I can help cook if they want it. I always love to cook a meal with someone as a way of being social. I also clean up always. If you want any information about online learning portals, then I can help with that! I can also help with English, as I have a lot of patience. But you also have to help me with your language if I'm learning it, ok?
