I'm sure this may be the most odd posting you've read!

But I have to be honest and maybe someone can help me or be interested...a shot in the dark unfortunately...

I'm a male, 35, single, and I live in Eden Prairie and work near Minnetonka. I've lived in many situations - on my own in apartments, with roommates (with some young professionals in their late 20s and another time with a woman and her two adult children). I've lived in several states and have done well for myself - honest, dependable, professional, saved my money, raised with good values, good credit, always pay on time. I tought sports for 10 years on the East coast, then worked in manufacturing most recently here in MN. But last year I made the mistake of my life...

I got charged with Stalking and now I'm on probation for 2-1/2 more years - if I'm lucky I'll get off sooner. Part of that is I have to pay therapy costs and the other part is that I have to abide by conditions of probation. Those would be no heavy drug or alcohol use in the house (I've never drank or used), no minors present, and probation might ask you if you have passwords to your electronic devices so I can't get in! I don't foresee probation doing much more - maybe one 10 minute home visit, and they can search me unannounced but probably won't but definitely not you or anywhere else in the house.

There - that's the absolute worst - I got it out of the way.

I'm just hoping that someone would consider giving me some kind of chance in my situation - realize that people who get in trouble are not bad people. I have 0 criminal history aside from this. A one-time thing, and I can get it expunged afterwards - they'll drop the charges. It's a bad experience and it's damaged me financially. I take full responsibility though.

I fear that, if I stay where I am at $1.100/month plus therapy cost, I will lose money for 3 years and everything I've worked so hard to save will be wiped out (the other half was wiped out after the charge). If I can get someplace cheaper it would change my life - my whole future. Unfortunately my family is out of state and I'm newer to Minneapolis - also almost no one wants to help out someone in my situation anyway - it's a red flag. The whole thing is ridiculous and not 1% as serious as they make it. After this experience I have a whole new point of view about the system and the people in it. I just want to get myself back on track in 2 years - quickly!

I work Monday through Thursday and may be taking a 2nd job on the weekends. I have plenty of savings now but don't want to risk losing it, hence this ad...

I'm a very nice, responsible, genuine, respectful guy. A good friend. Someone who listens, is responsible, likes good conversation, empathetic, intelligent, educated, can help out. Someone who doesn't like to ask for help but must. I'm just not quite sure what to do but I thought I'd ask.

I could definitely consider paying up-front - maybe 6 months at a time? Or a lease. Whatever you like. If you have other ideas you can let me know.

If anyone might be interested (???????) please let me know. It would be here in Hennepin County. I'd hope for something $650 - $700 / mth or below?

I understand any apprehension. We can meet up and I can buy you lunch or something over the weekend and you can get to know me if you like. Or talk on the phone. Whatever you think.

Sorry for the essay. Thanks for your consideration!
