I am an extrovert, getting energy by being around other people. I enjoy bringing people together, introducing friends to each other and watching them get to know each other.
I like meeting new people and traveling. What I most enjoy about these new experiences is learning again and again that while people and places can, at first, seem very different, there are often similarities that are deep.
It has been said of me that I've "...never met a stranger." I feel comfortable around new people quickly and like to make them comfortable around me. As a guest I like to respect the host's space. I'm self-sufficient and can entertain myself in other cities. At the same time, I like to learn about my host and his/her home and what their recommendations are for enjoying their location.
As a host I enjoy making my guests at home. I like finding out what they enjoy and helping assure they have the visit they would most like by sharing recommendations. I also like giving my guests freedom to have space and time to themselves and assuring that their time in my home accommodates their needs and wants.
