If you’ve had people mention that you could stay with them, I would suggest sending a casual email to a group of acquaintances/friends (including ANYONE who offered to let you stay) and mention when you’ll be back in the States, how excited you are to see people, etc. and then mention that you’re still working out the details of where you’ll be living and working, so if anyone knows of anything to please let you know. That way they can re-offer if they’re serious.

great! If no one offers you a place to stay, you could always check out Craigslist and see about renting just a room — be sure and really check into it though, because there are some real weirdos on CL!

I’d take up ANYONE who offered to let you stay for a little bit.

And yeah, I’d look into renting a room from someone too! There are lots of people who have a room in their houe to sublet. Craigslist is an option but I think there are more “reputable” sites out there.

You won’t be able to get a place of your own b/c for apartments you need a year’s contract usually (unless you’re military in which case you can safely break your contract w/o penalty in some states) and first and last month’s rent (so yean a few grand lol).

You could do some searching in college towns–lots of people need temporary roommates! Or student housing sometimes has 6 month leases. You don’t always have to be a student if it’s not university sponsored.

You seem like a perfect candidate for Couchsurfing.com  We use this frequently as a cheap way to travel and meet people. We just had a guest from belgium stay with us last weekend. You may consider joining. I also understand about planning a wedding from overseas without seeing the hall… i did the same thing!
