I've been member of Warmshowers for a few years now and I've been doing some cycling trips etc. I've had a few cyclists over and I've got a few references. But I'm not receiving many requests (maybe 5 a year), which is quite sad, as I take everyone in if I'm at home.
So about 5 weeks ago, my girlfriend, who's never been on a bycicle trip before, joined warmshowers to be a host too. She lives in the same city as me, maybe 1km away. She get's so many requests and in those 5 weeks, she has hosted more cyclists throug warmshowers than I have in the whole time I've been here.
I mean, wtf? It feels very discriminating and quite frankly, it makes this whole warmshowers experience terrible. Same problem on CS btw. What is wrong?!
