How do you feel about these organizations/opportunities? Remembering “pprayers” and the blatant mooch (and every other thing which I will not mention) that he was and now a recent post by someone I, on the face of it, consider a chuckle-head, well, I don’t know that I would be willing to open my home for some unknown house guest. Nor am I inclined to take advantage of such offerings (I don't mind meeting strangers, I just won't invite myself into someones house whom I have never had a conversation with, let alone gotten to know on any level—it's not me). Now I know some of you do use these resources and I am just curious as to what your experiences have been. Have your hosts ever recalled unpleasant or undesireable people staying with them? Did you find any of your hosts to be head-cases? Cause you any uneasiness? As I mentioned, I do not intend to take advantage of these services, but I am, however, very curious as to how users have liked it and what their experiences have been.
