Looking for a couch for a 20 year old girl from the 25th to the 31st. Clean, open minded, doesn't mind sleeping on the floor. Please let me know a.s.a.p :) If you can only host me 1 or 2 nights that would be awesome as well. Every bit helps.

Hey Melissa I see your new to CS, and since benchmark bought it and fucked around with it I can understand you not knowing how it works. Groups are only supposed to be used for couch requests when they are couch request groups (there is one for ny) and also if you have tried the typical method and it hasn't worked. You need to send personal couch requests to people who you think you would want to stay with (try 100-300 words) about why you want to stay with them and they should host you. It also helps if you bring gifts, hosts love gifts. I see that you have responded to 0% of the requests sent you and only signed only 5 days ago, this will make people think you just signed up for cs as a last minute option to save money on your trip, which can be ok, but you should make awesome requests to make up for that.

good luck with your cs experience
