  1. We are subleasing an apartment from a family friend that lives in another state. We pay a stabilized rent and extra for his pocket. We have made improvements to this apt. and when we have asked for things to be done, such as repair wood rot cabinets and such nothing gets done. I understand that we don;t have a legal contract but neither does he. I feel he is our landlord in a way. We even had to hire a professional roach exterminator because the people that were being sent from the building office did nothing to make them go away. We showed him the receipts and basically he feels its not his problem. We told him to submit them to the office for reimbursement but he says they won’t reimburse. We withheld the $350 we paid for the service from the rent and he says we owe him that. Do we?

    What would you say this subleaser?

  2. I live with my nan, she’s just kicked me out, they don’t like who I am dating, because he’s off the internet and not 100% white.
    I have no home she’s gave me half an hour to pack up and leave, she’s been saying ti for a while no she means it.
    I’ve worked I have about £600 in savings I have some good stuff I can sell like top of the range wiiu/vite/ps3/3ds xl, lots of games, good phone. I have my mother’s old jewellery I’d be willing to sell as well.

    I just don’t know where to go, I don’t know any local shelters with out going into the city centre and looking for one. I’m 18 and female, what can I do?
    I have no more family to take me in.
    Currently using my neighbours wifi because she unplugged ours.

    I am lost cryng so much.

    Where can I go, I have money not a lot but if i sell my things i do have enough over £1,000

  3. ok me and my bf are 20 and 22 repsectively..we study at the same university but problem is I have morning classes and he has evening classes…its very rare he comes in the morning..moreover..we live cities apart too about 4 hours of driving..and both are financially stressed.
    Plus to makes matter worse..neither of us have a driving license..so we cant drive to each others places.Recently had acquired permission from the local authority to drive for 2 months but problem is he doesnt have a car..we cant afford to rent one either so useless.
    An entire semester has went by and he hasnt taken me out anywhere..or even spend time with me.He says he cant come in the morning because of transportation issues.He tried a couple of times to borrow a car from his friends..but there are always complications..(one of them ditched at the last minute..I was ready and was left waiting for 5 hours in a party..only to hear that he is sorry tht he cant come I shouldnt be sulking and he will make it up to me the next week..)
    Guess what next week..another financial problem emerged and we never got a chance to spend time together..
    Two weeks later he again tried to borrow his friend’s car and made plans to surprise me..( i came to know about that later) the night before the “plan” he called to say that he arranged stuff to surprise me and ordered a 3 feet bouquet for me..but as usual his friend turned his back at the last moment saying he wont give the car until he paid back the money he owed.He was very upset..i said I loved him and that he made an effort to do all that was really amazing.
    The thing that sucks the most now..just two days ago my bf broke the news that he is moving aaway to his home country back to our home town..we will seperated by a great distance now.
    I wanted to spend the last weeks together..because we wont be seeing each other for a long time..I asked him whether he will come over..he replied I cant..I tried coming over yesterday but something happened..and I cant tell you that..you will be more tensed and stressed..so better leave it.
    I tried asking what wnt wrong he said..”its something my friends did..”
    I felt really hurt and upset..I mean its so unfair..I have remained supportive throughout and now whn he is going away..he still cant meet me or spend time with me.Its not like i didnt try from my side to stay back in univerisity till the evening..( my parents have given me a strict curfew period)
    I talked to him about this…that I wanted us to spend more time together…and he had nothing to say except I miss you too.
    He is now busy going out with his guy friends to night clubs and concerts on weekends..we hardly talk now..because he knows I have turned too moody and depressed..its like he is withdrawing..

    I cant help feeling sad and slightly jealous of his friends..I tried to keep myself preoccupied by spending time with my girlfriends…but half of the time they are busy with their own relationships…I m pretty much on my own..so I study..watch movies..etc

    Any advice on how i can deal with this situation?:(

  4. How can we go about planning for a beautiful wedding without having to sell a kidney for it? And a honeymoon?… We don’t have air miles or anything, so that’s not an option for us. It would all be out of pocket.. But anyway, any idea’s? Tips/suggestions?.. Personal experiences?…

    If it can be helped, I’d REALLY like to not pay over $5000 for everything. At least wedding-wise. Honeymoon, too, if possible. THANK YOU! 🙂 x
    PS- I would love to have our wedding on our dating anniversary, which is September 24th. Do you think that time of year would also save us some money when it comes to a service/hall?…

  5. We have a friend who moved about 2 years ago and is still trying to sell their original house. They have now cut the price to the point where any more price cuts and they will have to bring money to the table at closing. They have had offers, but they are $30K below what is being asked at $230K. They owe about $210K and it will take about $225K to close after paying realtors and closing costs. Without realtors, the house won’t get shown, since they no longer live in the area. They pay out about $2,100 in total costs each month on the first house. Any suggestions?

    I’m on an informal committee to determine if the (neighbor friends’) church can let it’s members sell stuff on the church property. The church would like to let it’s members sell their home made items, with no obligation to give the proceeds to the church. Would this require a business license or a reseller’s permit?

    Please don’t answer “ask the church”. The person at the church needs help determining this.
    Could the church cover all of the tax requirements by having their own Reseller’s Permit/Resale license – and then the member’s can contribute the appropriate tax amount to the church from their sales. I’ve seen this done at Community Centers.

  7. I’m an Indian, as you can see…
    Possible to Hire a Rental Motorbike at Albania?
    Can I get them at the accommodation places? the locals, or website?

    any rates, per day? not much though! I prefer budget travel…
    International Permits will do to hire the bikes there? Or anything else?

    Thank you

  8. Questions about booking hotels in china?
    im from mauritius island, i learned chinese and planing a backpacker trip to china to increase my speaking capacity.so i can get on the chinese version of the booking websites like elong and i get even stumble my way through websites of motel/2stars like home’s inn or 7 days inn – where of course the prices are cheaper and you get more hotels choices,located in better places. the problem is when you book rooms from those hotel in the chinese websites, you are asked a mobile number, i think its for them to send you confirmation via your mobile phone. and of course i dont have a chinese phone number. now someone on couchsurf kindly gave me his mobile phone number to use there. as I heard many chinese hotels do not want to rent rooms to foreigners just b/c they would have to send some documents to the police about this person, and to save em the bother, they just dont take foreigners. so my question is : if i use this friend’s phone number and carry out my booking successfully, upon check-in they find out that im not a PRC resident, won’t they refuse me the room ? im really concerned about this, as a budget traveller, i expect indifference and don’t expect super nice treatment. btw im arriving in shanghai the 11 of july,going to nanjing and wuhan, then coming back to shanghai on the 22 until the 26. do you sensibly think i can do a walk-in booking for the 22 until 26 , right on the 11, or would it be short notice and all rooms will be full ? walk-in because i want to see a bit the hotel before booking
    last but not least, my plane reaches pudong for arrival at around midnight. will there still be taxis ? i presume yes,but any advice ? i read the ride to downtown should be around 200RMB and the best company to take is dazhong, blue taxis..is all this true ?

    any additionals tips you would like to give to a 20yo first-time alone traveller to china ? in my country,which at least half the size of any chinese city, there is no metro.
    1 hour ago – 4 days left to answer.

    I am planning my second wedding, and while I dont’ want the big hullaballoo like my first marriage, I would like an intimate backyard wedding to celebrate finally finding my true love.
    We have no budget, but we are very creative and talented artists who can make/do just about anything. My parents have a beautiful property, and I can see saving some money for a tent and tables.
    I would like some ideas (details please) on decorations and food for perhaps 50 or so people. I’m not doing the “white thing”. I am thinking buying candles and cheap glass containers in bulk, and alot of paper lanterns when I can find them cheap. White string lights, etc. Flowers are going to be a problem, I’m thinking about tissue paper flower garlands, fabric, that type of thing. Any ideas about color themes,flowers, linens, other cheap/bulk items that make nice decorations, and a way to cut the cost of food would be great! I think the wedding will be late summer or fall.

    Here’s the deal.Im 26,strong white male,however,I recently hurt my arm and had to lose my job and have surgery.Im single and have been living off of my savings,food stamps and occaisional free meals at local church during the last 3 month’s of recovrey and phys. therapy.
    Now I must go back to work whether,or not my doctor recomends it because I’m out of savings and am being evicted from my studio for failure to make the last 2 months rent.
    My question is can I get internet service on my laptop,so that I would be able to plug it in whenever Im at the shelter,or visiting my friend’s house, and be able to search the web for jobs/send and recieve e-mail/resume to prospective employers?
    Keep in mind I have no cell or landline phone so my e-mail would serve as main communication,but also Icannot use “dial up” i.s.p for the above mentioned lack of phone.
    To answer # 2 ..No,Im not seeking “free” internet service..Its not that simple.I’am seeking to attain internet service for my laptop,in abscence of my having 1)a credit card.2)phone and 3)soon to be (for the most part) homeless.I’am capable to scunge up some money as necessities are eventual.
    Tell me general public..is it absolutely necessary for one to own,or possess a phone inorder for one to achieve a viable internet service on his/her laptop?

  13. Basically. I met this guy through my friends from college. He lived 4 hours north of where I went to school in one of my close friend’s hometown. We met up over break from school in fall 2010 and I fell right then and there. We dated off and on when I was in school. I broke up with him a few times because of him being so clingy and not quite meeting the standards I had then, but I realized I really cared about him so we ended up for good back together in may 2011. (Basically, when we were broken up he would add these random girls off the internet and some he knew and would tell them he wanted to be with them over a very short period of time and I found out about it through catching him in lies) we had the time of our lives and I fell SO SO hard for him. I moved in with him and his family 4 hours north until we could get an apartment. we had a plan set and everything. Then I found out I was pregnant. we were going to keep the baby and everything was scary but very exciting at the same time. We eventually found out it was a missed miscarriage and I had to have a D&C. we went through everything together. I considered him my best friend. I got a local job and worked my way up to be able to afford my half of rent for us in an apartment but one problem… He quit his manager job he had in hopes to find a better job. 8 months went by and he put up every excuse in the book to put off getting a job. He lost his car because he couldn’t afford the payments on it and his parents couldn’t either. after living with them for 7 months and getting in really bad fights because all I wanted was for him to get his crap together so we could move out together but he felt more like I was being his parent and all he wanted to do was play his x box and go to poker and drink while I sat there working 6 days a week and doing his job applications for him and taking him out to eat and around because I really enjoyed spending time with him. He considered that wrong. He got sick of me and when his family couldn’t afford to house me anymore (which I understand) I got an apartment and he dumped me, added his ex gf back the next day and all the old girls he used to talk to when had temporary break ups. He won’t talk to me. won’t see me and flat out told me he found someone so amazing and their his world and there’s nothing between us. in only five days. He said he’s felt that way for months. I am so heartbroken. I want him back. I want to heal. I now live in a city where I live in an apartment with my coworker two minutes from him and EVERYWHERE and everything reminds me of him. I know we fought all the time but I’m willing to change that and take time to figure myself out. But I can’t make someone love me. I don’t know how he did that when we were just so close…We broke up on our 18 month anniversary.

    any advice?

  14. Hi there, apologies if this turns into a little bit of a rant, feeling particularly low today but will do my best to stick to the point.. In June 2009 I graduated with a BA (Hons) in Graphic Design. Since then I have worked in a design internship but no permanent position was available. I then went to work again on a temporary basis as an assistant to a painter and decorator, then after a large gap of many months I then worked in a temporary customer service job but was offered a place on an another internship with a potential job at the end; so I left to chase my dream, but then no permanent job came of it.

    Since then i have been doing minimal freelance work with my graphic design skills, but its sparse and I cannot rely on it; I cannot pay my bills and I cannot pay my rent, I am relying on my mother for help and I am 24 years old. I attend interviews regularly only to be told every time that I made it to the top five yet someone else had more experience or that someone else more closely met the needs of the role.

    At the moment I am at college part time learning web design to add to my graphic design skills, I am learning to drive, volunteering at a local homeless shelter and working on freelance basis. But this is all costing me to do. My poor mother is getting extremely fed up of supporting me (understandably) and wants me to have a job right now this second with a regular wage so I can either move out or pay more into the household. Even though if I complete the above i probably stand much more of a chance at getting a job. We have constant rows and tears about it all. I pay her what I can.

    I apply for all kinds of jobs, I don’t view any as beneath me at all. But people tell me that I am probably overqualified for a lot of types of jobs due to my degree.. (things like shop work etc)
    I find interviews quite terrifying at times, after two years of knock backs my confidence is at an all time low and I am convinced i won’t get the job before i even walk in the room.

    I have many CV’s tailored around my different skills and some good references.

    I hear often that there are so many people in this situation, yet near enough everyone I know my age has a job and I don’t understand. I worked very hard for my degree and I have a lot of work experience gained through working since I was sixteen. I have worked in a fashion store, bar, book shop, office and supermarket on summer and christmas contracts whilst a student.

    Can anyone shed some light on the situation.
    Thanks

  15. A friend of mine, and I are looking to rent a two bedroom apartment together. (which is good as we are both basically homeless; I’m crashing on friend’s floors, and she is bouncing between hotel rooms)

    The problem is that I don’t honest know how you do that. I don’t know the ‘trick’, that I know is there.

    It’s the same with jobs, I can find a listing on Craig’s List, and send my resume, but it took months of that not working, and I know there must be a key step I’m missing.

    As with jobs, as with apartments. I’ve never had one of my own (never been on the lease at least), so I don’t know if I know what I’m doing. We look on Craig’s List, and Rent.com, and Apartments.com, and we’ve tried driving around looking for places with vacancies, but something still seems off. Any advice?

  16. ok im 14 and my and my boyfirend are having sex it with be my first time so i want it to be very very special. but the thing is i dont know wereto do it? neither of us have cars and my house and his house are out of the question. ideas???? fun romantic placesyouve had sex???

    I graduated high school in May and am taking a year off before college to save money for college. I’ve been working at a local restaurant, but the hours and tips are enough to only pay for rent, food, gas etc. and no more. So I’m looking for a new job. I want to pursue a career in medicine (I plan to major in Genetics at UGA and hopefully follow that into Med School), and so I would love to get any experience in or exposure to the medical field possible. So my question is if there are any jobs that I could potentially get that would give me that experience or exposure given my current position as only a high school graduate?
