I'm sorry, I am not able to host right now. I just got back from travelling and am living with family right now, and it's pretty cramped here. However, if you want to meet me, and feel you could relate to me, then I'd be happy to show you nice places around Dublin.
I took a LONG time to think about what I am going to write, because I don't want to present myself in the way that most other people do...You know, loves travelling, different cultures, learning different languages etc. Rather, I just want to present my less socially unacceptable parts, and just present myself as authentically as I possibly can, without giving that impression of being special, because I want people to know what to expect from me, and I care about people, but I don't want to please everyone. I just want to be honest, even if I am not going to be liked by everyone. In the end, I respect everyone to make their own ideas about me.
So, about me...
I did the Myer Briggs personality test, and I am apparently INFP (if you don't know, that's 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 species is on a very slow path of evolution, and there is nothing I can do to force it to speed up in becoming more conscious. I prefer wisdom over idealism, because unfortunately I find that idealism doesn't take the human condition into account.
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 life is about becoming more wise and aware.
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 might say yes to a bit of weed however, if you try me!
I am a very autonomous traveller and don't expect my hosts to be extra considerate towards me (you know, cooking for me and showing me around the place they live etc) because we are all busy with our own lives and work, but it would at least be nice to spend 2 hours with my hosts, if I am staying with people, because I come to you not merely because it is cheaper but because I want company, I want to get to know people and enjoy my social life, and it is really boring in a hostel.
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 love women. You can interpret that as you want. Like I said, I respect you to make your own ideas about me. I love being around women, and I like to flirt, be free to be a bit silly like a boy and joke. I also like to blow kisses at women in public places, if they seem friendly, just to make their day, and it is really fun.
By the way, I don't just meet women. I want to meet guys too, if they feel they can relate to 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!
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!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I had an out-of-body experience.
Attended cuddle parties... Never was the same again.
I managed to climb a tall, narrow and steep part of a hill where I didn't have much space to walk. Either I climbed it or I was stuck with the possibility of falling... I thought I was going to die!
Teach, Learn, Share
English, because it is VERY useful and a beautiful language!
I can share my humour that lights up peoples' days.
Personal insights, that may or not be interesting for the other person.
Please let me think of more
What I Can Share with Hosts
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?
