Some people are like that. I have one living with me now. He's not a complete mooch, he does give me some money toward the expenses of living here, but he is a very unstable individual in many ways and has kind of drifted around from place to place and relatioship to relationship. They are pretty charming but there seems to be something about their personality...

thanks for responding----i dont think he is mooching off his new 'landlord' but the pattern is un mistakeable....and i think it would be unwise for me to have him visit me......he swears it is his life style and just happened to 'stumvle on this place.....i am not a gpood judge of character i guess..
