Ha. It's funny, I consider myself a total retard when it comes to social skills and I'm often described as having 0 charisma but my entire life I've always been good at specifically getting people to get me stuff, wether it be games, weed, or a place to stay.
The biggest important thing I should mention is what matters the most isn't us and our social skills, but the type of person that we're trying to take advantage of. Every single time I managed to get into an incredible living situation where someone rich let me live with them for free/cheap, that person was incredibly stupid and easy to read. Think trust fund babies who spend thousands of dollars on star wars Funko pops and clash of clans/Farmville tier Facebook games. Guys who are so stupid they have to pull out their phone calculator to do basic math, people who lack basic grammar skills, guys who only know how to throw money at all of their problems and have Rick and Morty tattoos. Some of these guys are so stupid I genuinely think any robot on this site could do what I do
It's weird, on the one hand I'm extremely thankful for these people for giving me an opportunity to have cheap rent, but on the other hand I also feel like nothing more than a depressed con artist taking advantage of literal retards who lack basic social skills. Also you might think I'm trying really hard to get into these situations but no, I've literally had people offering me a room to stay in when I'd never asked or suggested or implied it to them.
