When I first met my boyfriend we had an instant connection. We enjoyed spending time together and we were always laughing. Soon after meeting him I found out he was unemployed and had been homeless for about 9 months, it completely shocked me. My first instinct was to run, with no income and no home I thought it would be very hard to have a relationship.
