Join Couchsurfing to see Mattias’s full profile. It’s free!
For surfers: I will be away for 2 weeks until around October 8th. Sorry about that.
Also for surfers: I will know if you read my profile or not, therefore messages that have no personal touch to them whatsoever. I am fed up of them. Understand that when I host you, I am giving my time and effort, therefore I am rather choosy with whom I accept, and I expect other people to be that way as well.
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 just wanna show you me, even if some parts for many people will be "uncool".
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 I have lived my life until recently in a really shy, reclusive and withdrawn shell, therefore I don't see what I have to lose by being honest... In the end, no matter how great you think you are, you're just not going to have an affinity with everyone.
...The ones you love, are the ones who love you.
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 with adjectives myself because you will surely invent those descriptions yourself just for me after you read this.
I am seriously devoted to studying economies, how they are run, central banks, the origins of money, demographics, the cycles of wealth, and am training myself to be a sophisticated investor, because I don't trust the government or the "nanny state" to look after me or my interests. Therefore I don't like socialism despite the good intentions. It just doesn't work.
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.
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 things like attitudes or behaviours as having either a "positive" or "negative" affect, or "constructive" or "destructive". What works, works, and what doesn't work, doesn't work, so there is no point in moralizing.
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" because I do not want to be rigid. 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 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 put it out there. I would love to share this with people, but only if they want it as well.
For surfers: type CUDDLE BEAR into the start of your couch request to show me that you have been reading my profile. Thank you.
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. But I don't only meet women, just as a general rule. 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. Isn't that what we all want?
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!

But you also have to help me with your language if I'm learning it, ok?
