We didn’t meet at that time, but he took a leap of faith and planned a trip to stay with me in San Francisco for two weeks five months after our initial email.

Couchsurfing and dating

I left Rome after just over a month of travel and instead of indulging in jet lag mandated sleep, I decided to write back all the request to meet for coffee or a drink, thanking them for the offer while letting them know I was no longer in Egypt and Italy (the two countries I’ve been to with the most prolific unsolicited request to meet).

As I finished replying to the most recent request, sent to me while I was in flight, I noticed the sender was cute. I clicked on his profile and read about his love of skydiving and scuba diving, and being impulsive, I sent him a second message saying it was too bad we didn’t meet because it looked like we had a lot of the same interest.

Couchsurfing is all about getting connected and getting closer to that new culture you are experiencing.

In case you are a host, is about blending in with the culture to give your guest the best experience.

I still laugh at the story of the angry Polish girl who undressed herself and waited naked in my Egyptian friend’s bed.

Let’s just say there was rejection, a lot of dramatic crying, and then sweet words of praise when it came time for her to leave him a reference.

Other Couch Surfers that I know have admitted to the inherent romantic side effects that happen when two attractive travelers meet in person.

Still, others have recounted horror stories of sexual mishap due to one participant’s misunderstanding of the other participant’s intentions.

Most tryst are short lived, some may never be consummated, still other people, like myself, have mainly used Couch Surfing to find a friendly face when in a new country and discovered some of the most generous and genuine people that would be hard to meet through sheer serendipity.
