LOS ANGELES: Several men have turned to homeless dating in an effort to woo a partner during the current economic crises.
According to a recent survey, relationships between middle class men and homeless women have increased by 93%.
Spousal rejection and a rise in the price of blow-up bolls are seen as the dominant factors for this increase.
'Faced with a declining income, men are slowly wanting their self-esteem back', said Richie Windows, of a datehomeless.com
'These man have formed a new common purpose: Intimacy with a homeless person. Men feel more secure. Homeless people will never turn down a dinner invitation or reject spending the night', added Windows.
'I never have to worry about her calling me. It's a perfect relationship.' added an unknown older man who rejected the title of ''homeless player' but added he has seen his fair share of cardboard boxes.
Another man commented' Even though we do not live together, I am her emotional shelter. I am there for her. Sometimes I give her a ride to a popular garbage can. I do my best'
Windows goes on further to say that environment is crucial.
'Going back to her place isn't an option. Cardboard boxes and plastic rain coats are common anniversary gifts while having dinner at a convience store is considered a special occasion.
The new trend has not been without incident. A man was recently arrested with numerous slices of pizza in his underwear, after several homeless complained of being stalked.
He later claimed to be filming a hunger games parody.
The pervert has not been identified.
