I have a friend who is in a difficult situation right now. He and his roommate recently moved into a new place. Alone, rent cannot be acheived, but together it is managable. His roommate was supposed to pay his half of the first months rent and deposit today. My friend came home from work to find all of his roommate's belongings gone, and a note confirming his departure. Here's where my question comes in. As stated above my friend cannot pay the rent alone. It is due very soon and he doesn't have the money. He is looking to find another roommate quick but the results aren't very promising. I make a substantial amount of money over him. I bring this up because I want to offer finacial help, as he's been my friend for many years and I know he would do the same for me if capable. My problem is I don't want to insult the guy by asking. Would it be insulting for me to offer him help, and is there a way I can offer?
