I won't tell you how to pick up girls in bars, nor how to dress or act like somebody more attractive than you are...
I just found an interesting way of getting in touch with real life persons just by surfing the web.
nerds, geeks, shy guys and girls, the secret of getting a social life for real is explained right in the next step.
Step 1: Register Online At:
yes, register, getting an account is free....
Step 2: What Is Couchsurfing?
couchsurfing is a web comunity that helps travelers getting in touch with hosts willing to share a couch, a bed or a place to sleep.
free, based on confidence and good will, both the traveler and the host get a mark for their behaviour/kindness/personality....
a good couchsurfer has lots of good mark, like a serious ebayer gets lots of good comments...proof of trustability.......
Step 3: So What?
well, I first registered on couchsurfing.org in order to get in touch with hosts during my trips....but I soon realised something very nice about the couchsurfing comunity...
the comunity itself!!
every week or even every day, the couchsurfers hanging around post their projects on a dedicated kind of forum.....for example:
-Hey!!! I found a very cool bar!!! I'm going on friday night...wanna come?from a guy with a funny profile, with lots of destinations in his passport.
-french food festival on the countryside this week end....i'm going with a friend, I can driv 2 others....from a 50 years old farmer.
-bored today, wanna get out tonight.....show me a nice place to have a drink. from a young woman with a cute smile
once in a while, the local moderator sets a meeting in a bar or something like that so all the people wishing to get involved can meet and have a nice time....
ii's that funny.....just check the messages from people in your area once in a while or get them delivered in your mailbox.
do not forget that couchsurfing is mainly a good way of triping trough the world, meeting new people is part of the game!
Step 4: Become a Host
sharing your flat for a few nughts a year might offer oportunities to meet interesting people from around the world, so fill the form and become a host.....
