Maybe Accepting Guests

Join Couchsurfing to see Sven’s full profile.
Well, I'm just a lad from Belgium. I grew up in a small town called Maaseik, near the Dutch border. After my studies in Maastricht, just across that border, I decided to move to Brussels to enjoy the city life. Nowadays, I'm still exploring my world, always eager to find new things.
PLEASE STOP SENDING ME REQUESTS WITHOUT READING MY PROFILE FIRST!
FRIEND REQUESTS WITHOUT HAVING MET ME BEFORE OR WITHOUT SENDING ME A MESSAGE WILL BE IGNORED! Accepting you on my friendlist is a matter of trust. I won't add you to make your profile look huge while in reality you're barely active in the network. I have sent several personal messages after having received a "blind" friend request. Usually, they don't even bother to reply.
Don't send me requests more than 3 or 4 weeks in advance. When it's too far ahead I don't know if I'll be really available. I want to be able to spend time with my guests. And last but not least the cancellation rate of people who asked me more than a month in advance is really high.
Because I get a lot of requests, I cannot accept all of them. Therefore copy and paste requests without the use of my name will be declined. To me this is a matter of basic politeness since you're asking me to enter my home. Furthermore it depends on my own schedule whether or not I can host you.
