ImThatGirl Posted August 15, 2008 Share Posted August 15, 2008 What do you do? I should have a list of resources prepared on a Word document for this type of situation. I used to offer a place to stay. A few years ago, my son's dad stayed with us briefly because he was in this situation. Two and a half years ago, my sister and her three kids stayed with us for six months. I moved away from town to keep a little more privacy and separate from some of this type of stuff. So long story short, a friend of eight years is going through a divorce, has his own apartment but for some reason couldn't afford the rent for August and got a notice that he must move by Sept 5. Mind you he hasn't asked to stay here and wouldn't. I suppose I should call him an ex boyfriend because we started off dating for several months until I realized he was dating another girl - I cut ties, he married the other girl. They decided to divorce after about 5 years (in the past year.) But I'm just curious. I used to over-obligate myself but refuse to do so now. It feels so cold to just say "well good luck." So what would you suggest if this was a friend of yours? I had a similar situation with a woman at work (friend) that has been moving from friends house to friends house for the past two years. I always just sweep it under the rug and move on in conversation when she mentions having nowhere to go (after suggesting several low in come apartment complex's.) Link to comment
