Baffled at the insane world of “couch surfing”

Where do I begin?
Couch surfing was advertised to me, and to many people as an app where if you were in need of a place to stay because you were going in a rough city or low on money you could plan ahead and stay at the home of a fellow traveller who might just understand your situation enough to help.
I understand that this may be a bit of a far fetched dream, and a bit much to ask. But what I found on this app, not to mention; the countless bugs, the “4-6 weeks” it takes to get verified (side note: what am I paying $80 for????), and it’s non-existent customer service, I found a system where you are forced to be a happy traveller with many stories, a wealth of knowledge and experience, and all the energy in the world to entertain your host. This app is NOT for travellers or adventurers pushing them selves out of their comfort zone, it’s glorified tinder. (Shout out to the many people using it as a dating app)

Amazing app

I really love it.. especially the hangouts feature. However, I wish it didn’t constantly say I have 1 unread message when I don’t. The notification won’t go away
