should a homeless person look for the comfort of the opposite sex? Or would that be insulting to the
I was just trying to understand that if a person is attracted to another person by physical and mental attributes, then it would stand to reason, to me anyway, that if one of those people were in a homeless shelter trying to get their feet back under themselves that if they were in need of some close attention *not sex* that it would be okay for them to reach out and try to strike up a relationship. I know a lot of people in that situation and they tell me that if they could get themselves into a relationship that it would be so much easier because they have someone there when they need them.
The problem comes in the organizations that run the shelters. By all means, just because someone is homeless that shouldn't prevent them from finding and building a relationship. But many of the groups that run homeless shelters, for one reason or another, frown on the idea. One reason is that many of the groups are religious in nature, and they typically discourage same-sex relationships because of their beliefs.
A more practical reason is that there is little privacy available in many shelters. The staff that run them need to know that the people they shelter are not going to be sexually active in places where other clients may encounter them. But as long as people can keep their sex lives out of the shelter, there's nothing to prevent them from developing a loving relationship.
Well if their intentions go further than just needing to have someone there in their time of need, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that! But if your intentions are to stroke your ego/insecurities or self centered motives you are better off just concentrating on getting yourself together and then concentrating on a relationship that will be lasting and would go much further than an ulterior motive. Having to be on my own at a very early age was not the best experience, but I will say that it was one that has brought me to the place that I am today. Mentally, physically, spiritually as well as emotionally. Sometimes it is for you to press on and go through the fire on your own--PERIOD! You dont want to be a burden to someone else especiallly if you are reaching out and you also want to have integrity and not put yourself in situations you cannot handle mentally or physically! Whatever your choice choose wisely!
