Messages from Creepy Doods on Couchsurfing

This is my couch:

couch for couchsurfing

It’s a nice couch. And so colorful, isn’t it? I like it a lot. I also just recently figured out it folds out into a bed!

I’ve used my couchsurfing account to meet up with a few people but have yet to host anyone. It’s not that I’m opposed to the idea – it’s just that most of the messages and Couchsurfing requests I receive are from older (like 30’s and 40’s), creepy doods. To try to discourage creepy dood messages, I added the following little notice to my profile: “I would love to be able to host as long as you’re not creepy.”

It’s worked, for the most part.

I like to have friends from all over the world and I was wondering if we can meet there and have a drink together “no worries I’m christian πŸ˜› ” and so you give me some recommendation for places to visit.

Hello there Michelle

I was just browsing and came across your profile and thought she seems really cool..I just moved to Bangkok so thought it would be cool to meet new peeps.
You probably get loads of messages and so to be honest…why would you want to reply to mine…But….
I’m Open-minded, Generous, Happy, Fun, love to travel, love to meet new people, love music, extremely spontaneous and impulsive, ambitious and passionate.
I’m very much into Karma and Aura, and how things happen for a reason..and so in that state..I’m going to see if we are meant to be friends (which would mean you will reply to me)…or not.
Like Dr Pepper says “try it..you might like it”
Hope to hear from you

F.x

PS a joke for you :

Whats the difference between the people from Dubai and Abu Dhabi?

The People from Dubai do not watch “The Flintstones” where as the people from Abu Dhabi doooo!

Hi Michelle,

Has anybody ever mistaken you as Giada de Laurentiis (of Food Network)? I swear, my initial glimpse of your picture profile made me look twice!

Anyways, may I ask for your help re creating a 1-day itinerary while in Bangkok? I am visiting CNX and CEI for work and have to frequently go back to BKK just to get between the 2 provinces. From your CouchSurfing entry experience, there is not much to see in BKK except for the touristy stuff. Given this statement, what would be a must-see/must-experience thing to do while in Bangkok? Like you, I’m not into the tourist trap but would rather experience the real Bangkok like any other locals.

I have messaged at least 3 people here in CS but have not heard back, I’m hoping that your southern hospitality would reign and provide me the guidance that I would be needing while in Thailand.

Thank you in advance.

    Hahaha, “you look so cute in your photos…” I don’t know, but that just makes me shudder. Especially the ‘…’ adds to the creepy factor! I’d never let a random guy crash my couch if he begins his e-mails with that.

    I never use to believe Liz, until she showed me her inbox.I still don’t know if its irritating or fun to read such unsolicited/weird message.

    Mostly messages on CS would be unsolicited simply because of the nature of the CS ecosystem..
