Dating on couchsurfing
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.
I would later learn of his wish to go to Beirut for his next trip, which coincided with my obsession with exploring more of the Middle East, and we bonded over our love of train travel, nerd level interest in learning new languages, and ability to quote, “The Simpsons”. It is no surprise that a site created to connect travelers has quickly become a dating site for them as well.
"Couchsurfing has given me the opportunity to live very valuable and beautiful experiences.
It's filled my journey with stories, people, and friends.
I have a friend who prefers to date women who he meets off of Couch Surfing to any other means of meeting women.
He says there is an automatic sense of connection because the site attracts travelers who are open to adventures, after all, not everyone is willing to stay on the couch of a stranger half way around the world.
It's given life to the places I visited, and I know that anywhere in the world I visit, I'll possibly have a good friend waiting for me!

I personally can’t judge him for that since my track record of dates have almost always taken place in other countries with men who may or may not speak English as a first language.Earlier this year I made Rome my home base as I traveled solo around Italy and to Egypt, Spain, and England.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.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.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.
