My significant other and I are currently separated by 1,125 miles of earth. I have a place for her out here, it is beautiful. All i need is $200 and I can get her here in about 8 hours, before June 2012. Her birthday was in April, and 2 days later, I had to leave to Florida. This was devastating for both of us, and I feel so bad for having to leave her there. I have opportunities for work for the both of us. I am currently staying in the middle of nowhere, but once she gets here, we will live in the city, where I can utilize my skills and expertise to make plenty of money, so paying you back will be no problem. The crazy part is that my kindness and generosity is the reason for my current situation. I tried to help someone, then they kept asking for more and more, then once I was well past a reasonable stopping point, they used my caring nature against me, cried the rest out of me. I was so gullible I let them use my ATM card, they had used it in the past with no problems, but upon calling my bank, I come to find out that I was just fueling someone's gambling addiction. My bank was overdrawn from a Casino ATM. I learned my lesson. This won't stop me from giving to others once I regain financial stability, but it will ensure that I keep my cards in MY possession at all times. my last $500 down the drain, never to be repaid. That's 2 months behind me now, and I will bounce back sooner or later, perhaps by starting my own business. I have plenty of skills and knowledge, i have just had trouble putting them to good use out here in the middle of nowhere, impeded by sadness/heartbreak/depression/ whatever you may call it, once we are reunited I can get back to being a functional, productive human being. Pretty soon, I will be building a new electric bike(genius uncle is gifting me some parts), my preferred method of transportation, as it allows me to break free from oil dependence, which allows me to do house calls as a computer repairman without having to charge anything(as it didn't cost me any gas to get there) Typical customers will try to pay me $20 for doing the simplest things, and I usually turn it down until they just force me to take their money, but of course, that is no way to make money. I do charge less than 25% of what your typical computer repair places charge, plus I do house calls for free and fix it on the spot. I do not charge for my time, as I work quickly and efficiently, unless you have a terribly slow computer, the most common repairs don't even take 5 minutes. My theory is that my low prices combined with top-quality service will earn me business via word of mouth. That is usually how it works. I started out in Mississippi, Just came from Oklahoma, and haven't touched anyones computer here yet, in Florida.. with the exception of the one I am currently using, my grandfather had sent this laptop back to the manufacturer twice and to a repair shop. Typical computer repair prices are highway robbery, and often, they will charge you so much that you could have bought a brand new computer, and don't even fix yours! That's what happened with this laptop. money sunk into it, nobody could fix it, but they didn't just give it back for free.. so, it's been sitting out in the shed for years. I ask my grandfather if he has any old broken laptops or anything, as trying to do computer work from my tiny Android is painstaking. "sure, you can have it if you can fix it" give me 5 minutes with it, it's up and running. about a week later I sunk about $7 into it to upgrade to a Wireless N card. Just needs a RAM upgrade now to take its dinosaur-single-core performance to its personal maximum.. That is just an example of how I intend to generate the income to pay you back this small loan of $200, using my 1337 skills and kindness. I had to leave EVERYTHING behind in Oklahoma. I left my Quad-core desktop PC with my girlfriend so she could communicate more easily (Ponca city, OK is one of few towns that set up a city-wide free WiFi system.) Well, somebody took that from her as soon as I left. I gave away well over $3000 worth of electric bike parts to random neighborhood kids because I could not bring them with me, and nobody knew enough about them to want to buy them off me for 10% ( I was trying to make money to get my girl a matching ticket, but apparently, the economy is no good. ) I gave an electric bike to my girlfriends' brother, strapped with over $1000 worth of batteries alone.. just gave it to him. I don't think I will have any problem getting you back your $200 in a reasonable amount of time, + a gift or interest or whatever you want. I just need to get this money as soon as possible, so I can buy her the plane ticket and give her enough time to get to the city where the Airport is by Tuesday. So, if I can get this small $200 loan from somebody by tonight, that would be best.
