|Hey guys, I’m in a really bad situation right now and I need some help. Every once in a while I’ll read a story on Reddit about complete strangers uniting together to help out another complete stranger. Because of amazing stories like these, I am hopeful that maybe there is one person out there that is willing to help me out. I know it’s selfish of me to sit here and ask for help... especially when I’m a perfectly healthy 29 year old.|
All I am seeking is shelter for me and my dog for 1 or 2 or 3 months or a week while I have a chance to save up enough money to get my own place. Right now I am in Athens, GA and it doesn't matter where I end up as long as it’s cost effective to get there. I will pay whatever I can for rent and utilities and will be completely self sufficient outside of the shelter allowed to me. I’d also like to gain a friend / mentor / role model / protege or whatever out of this.
My mid-term objective is to create a radically new ecommerce platform. I have been selling OpenCart templates and modules and business has been growing very quickly. I’ve built a theme using Twitter Bootstrap and this is the base that I am building from to eventually create my ecommerce platform.
I just found that my girlfriend of 4 years has been cheating on me after I gave her a second chance and I need to get away from here as soon as I can. This was definitely not expected and although I should have planned for circumstances like this, I'm not in a position to get another place on such short notice.
I want to believe that there are people out there that are willing to help out a complete stranger. And not that I deserve any help.. But simply just because I'm a good person who has made some mistakes and who is going through a really crappy time right now. I want to know that everything that I've aspired to do hasn't and won't be a waste of my life.
