    At the beach here I've seen homeless guys of all ages, friendly & not, good looking and not. I was just curious...

    If the guy above you was homeless and you passed him on the street, would you:

    1. Give him some money.
    2. Ignore him.
    3. Take him to a restaurant for food.
    4. Tell him to leave people alone and stop begging.
    5. Invite him to stay at your place until he can get a job.

    well, let's see...

    1. Give him some money. (he might go buy more alcohols or drugs instead of save money for foods)

    2. Ignore him. (maybe he's there on purpose, cuz he wants people feel shame about themselves for not helping)

    3. Take him to a restaurant for food. (after he ate, he goes back to his usual spot to sleep. so what's the point?)

    4. Tell him to leave people alone and stop begging. (only cold heart person would dare to say that)

    5. Invite him to stay at your place until he can get a job. (he could be a psycho or wacko, or a house slave if you wanna be a master)

    so for me to pick one option above... i would say none of the above. icon_confused.gif

    I'd go buy him a sandwich and a hot coffee. I hate giving money to panhandlers. I feel like they're just going to spend it on booze anyway.

    I would go get him (or anyone else) a meal and perhaps a fast food gift card. That way he/she has food immediately and also has money for food only in days to come.

    Appearances shouldn't matter in my opinion. If a person is stuck in an unfortunate situation, should it be left up to his/her level of attractiveness to determine whether or not he/she gets helped? I think not.

    I'd say he was too private....LOL jk.

    Anyone should be given some help.. not sure if money is the answer.
    I don't think anyone should be ignored.

    Nice to hear the positive comments. I see a lot of people ignoring the homeless as if they don't exist which sucks. I always talk to them, try to get them to smile; they're people too.

    One of the reasons I asked this was because I recently saw this homeless female, very pretty looking. A lot of straight men were being super friendly to her like a piece of meat which made me wonder what guys in here would do in a relatively similar situation or just in general? Nice comments guys, very cool. icon_wink.gif

    Oh yeah, definitely 1, 3 & 5 for the guy above.

    This is a tough one,
    I have occasional given money to them but more likely to talk and see if there is some other way to help.
    As for meninlove, knowing that he is a nice guy and helps others I would want to do 1, 3 & 5 probably and hope he and others would do the same (for me as well)

    Of course. I would do any if not all of these for anyone, and have, regardless of their appearance.

    Ok this thread is good,......but if each and everyone of us were homeless, we would not be looking the way we do, we woud look the way they do..so would you still do everything you say you would do if they looked differently?

    Everone does deserve to be helped but as far as it being in money for maybe not, but money can buy food and resources are out thereto help people. I would Buy food for anyone if I had money myself. As I have done it many times int he past.
