hey! hi! so ill make this short and sweet. my boyfriend and i are trying to move in together because a) we love each other, b) it costs too much to travel halfway across the country to see each other, c) both our parents are kicking us out of our respective houses, and d) i need to escape an unhealthy+triggering environment (ask me off anon and ill go into detail if you really want to know but i dont want to talk about it on a public signal boost post).
the problem is, i couldn’t work while i was pregnant and after i gave my baby up for adoption i gained a job which i shortly lost due to being hospitalized. i haven’t been able to find work since. my boyfriend’s job is really shitty and they hate it but that’s all we’ve got right now. we’ve been able to save up some, but it isn’t enough. we need $1500 ($750 rent plus equal that for a security deposit) just to move in, and while we have a good 2/3 of that, we’re still going to need the other 1/3 plus food, electric bills, phone service, car insurance, internet service, and emergency money if one of our cars breaks, since i don’t know how long it’ll take me to find a job there.
we’re trying to make this happen by feb 9th, both because the 10th is my boyfriend’s birthday, my parents are basically kicking me out, and also because i found The absolute perfect house for us. it’s beautiful and in a great neighborhood, plus right next to a job gorman can transfer to (and possibly another one if they get it!). it looks like it’ll go fast so we need to jump on this opportunity asap! however, we can’t do it without help, and while it pains me to ask so shamelessly this is all i’ve got. my family has no money to lend me and neither does my bf’s.
if you could donate even a little, it would mean the world to us. i mean it. you can donate directly to firstname.lastname@example.org or by clicking on the donate button on gorman’s sidebar. if you can’t do that for any reason, we’d both be very grateful if you could signal boost this post!! thanks for reading!!
