To be honest, I am in love with a homeless girl. But I can't seem to find myself getting into a relationship with her. I do not have strong finacial support to have her living in my pants. I really hope a charity can assist me with this issue, message me back! Thanks!

Ps.... She is an immagrant from Korea, and I'm in deep love. Please support. Much love! Thanks!
