At this time, I prefer to host just one person at a time. I am accepting guests during the pandemic, although I will be a bit more picky than usual.
If you don't have any reviews or work experience, or if you feel you don't have skills, don't worry - you are still welcomed here. I am certain you can teach me things I never expected.
I'm a 43-year-old single male and I live in a highrise apartment building in downtown Dallas. I work from home most days (even before the pandemic) and I'm on the phone most of the day and/or answering the many emails that I receive. It's often hard to break away from work and make meals for myself often resulting in me having my first meal of the day around 16:00. In exchange for your cooking skills, you'll get a comfortable bed to sleep on, incredible views of the city, and an opportunity to experience many different cultures and ideas. My primary purpose is helping make the world a better place - I want to share my home and my experience with you so that you can pay it forward. Don't let my age scare you away, I act like a teenager most days; I make lots of stupid jokes and am laughing nonstop. I have lots of tattoos (and plan on getting more), and I listen to hard rock music. I definitely don't act my age.
Loving kindness and acceptance are core principals in my home. You'll be expected to treat yourself and others with kindness and compassion. You'll experience a freedom like you've never known -- free from judgment, and permission to be yourself.
I don't drink alcohol, but don't mind if you do as long as it's not excessive and/or causes interference with your everyday life.

I'm a natural-born teacher and love helping others improve their English language skills. I also frequent both a Buddhist and Hindu temple, so I can introduce you to those cultures if you'd like, and I can teach you basic meditation techniques and share my experience on my spiritual journey.
I'm very fortunate to have been given a life filled with many experiences. I've loved so much that it hurt; I've fallen so hard and so far that I didn't think I'd ever get back up. I've met my all-time favorite band many times and was actually invited to stand on the stage for one of their concerts. I've physically felt God's presence on numerous occasions although I classify myself as a Buddhist. I've often been called "wise" by many folks - I believe "wisdom" to simply be experience, and I'm happy to share my experience with you. I will warn you - I have some radical ideas, and may gently push you to grow spiritually.
Cooking 2-3 meals per day (I prefer vegetarian or vegan foods if possible), some light household chores such as cleaning the kitchen after you cook, and taking out the garbage. I recycle about 90% of everything that enters my home including styrofoam, plastic straws, plastic wrappers, and more, so I may ask for help sorting everything and helping me carry it out to the recycling center.
I'm also looking for someone who can help me with fitness training; there is a very nice facility in my building, so I'd like for you to keep me motivated to use it.
I do charity work, and you can choose to join me for that, but it's not required. I'm an artist - painting, drawing, and photography. Assistance with a few artistic projects would be great, but not required.

Cet hôte propose un échange linguistique
I'm interested in improving my French grammar and would like to learn German, Portuguese and Italian.
A private room or a bed in a semi-private corner of the living room - either option gets you a comfortable, private bed along with blankets, pillows, and towels.
I'm walking distance to supermarkets, bars, restaurants, public transport, museums, parks, and more. You'll have access to free laundry, free wifi, a workout facility, and a swimming pool. I have a few board games including Catan, Monopoly, Cards Against Humanity, lots of puzzles and Scrabble (but beware because I am the Scrabble master) and a VR system/Oculus Quest that you can use.
Short stays are OK - even just 2-3 nights. A 2-3 week stay is ideal but I may be open to much longer once we meet.
I was a long-term member of another website and hosted nearly 300 travelers, but I don't like the direction that their platform is going.
