  • I've had several roommates (I currently live alone) and it's not that bad... it really depends on where the roommates are from, and their personality. I had an American who barely ever came out of his room, only saw him like 5 times in a year. Then another American who was in the army and was kinda dumb lol but the mofo ate my food sometimes -_- Then other Americans that were pretty cool, no issues with them.
    Then I had 2 Chinese, and they were very polite, but they were kinda dirty. They spent hours in the kitchen, and never cleaned it, and when in their room, they were pretty loud.
    There was a Georgian who was nice, but a little bit awkward.
    An Arab who was also pretty cool, but one time I went to the kitchen and saw him on the floor eating from the pot with his hands. Was a bit shocked about that, but it's his culture, so it's no biggie lol

    I didn't have much issues with them, the only thing was one eating my food, some being dirty, some using the kitchen for too long, making me wait hours to be able to eat, and sometimes some making too much noise. No fights or anything like that.

    Pets weren't allowed, and thank goodness, because I think that would be a pain in the ass.

    • I mean I'm not super prissy where I need rules for everything... I'm just scared of having people walk over me... I feel like I'm too nice. I also don't think I'd like having girl roommates; It seems like too much drama. How'd you find your roommates? why would a dog be a pain in the ass?

    • With roommates you can't be soft, because then they will walk over you, you gotta set some rules and boundaries. You don't wanna end up being the one cleaning your roommate's messes all the time.
      I only had male roommates, so I don't know how girls are as roommates, but guys weren't too bad.
      The housing I was assigned the roommates themselves. They made us fill out some paperwork, asking what type of person we are to sort of assign roommates that are similar to you, but I think they just assigned them randomly cause every dude was completely different xD
      I've never had a pet, so I don't really know how to take care of one, plus, I fear I may get asked to take care of the dog if they go out or something. And if the dog poops on the floor for example and the owner isn't there, I'll have to be the one picking that shit up.

    • lol well I guess I could do that and my dog is potty trained so no accidents. Thanks.

  • i've learned its not always the best idea to have your friends as roommates cuz they will eventually get on your nerves. pick people you can be cordial with and they'll be a good roommate but you guys each do your own thing for the most part.

  • depends on the person. it's either amazing or awful, pretty much no in between.

    dealing with bad housemates can be a horror story. be firm if you can. "No, I did the dishes last time. Now you do them." that sort of thing.

  • Based on my 0 experience I would say you should look for someone of your same sex, ideology or religous believes, with similar values and.. That's it.. I forgot, similar income (you don't want to end up paying more than you should, 50/50 would be..9_9, fair? Fear, bueno correcto.

  • Gotta get the perfect roommate like me lmao.
    Extremely clean, can cook, is nice and will go out of my way if you want something of me.

    Only favour, help get me to bed after I come home after a fight and I'm covered in blood.

    Shit goes down but maybe it's my area.

  • Make sure they're hot otherwise you'll regret making out with them after a night of drinking.

  • It can be a challenge to live with someone else for sure. I would advise you to not live with a friend because it can really put a strain on your friendship. Make sure to get on the same page before you move in - are guests welcome? how often? chores/grocery responsibilities.

    My roommate has a dog and I hate him. I'm a dog lover and I hate this dog which has put a huge strain on our friendship as well.

    • I live in the ghetto of California. From Oc though so I know what you mean. Good luck whichever you choose to do (:

  • It's nice. Some roommates are hardly around, and that's nothing to complain about.
    Some are around too much, oh my god :) I like my roommates, but one was alwayyyyys around on the weekends and all I wanted to do was have loud sex with my long distance relationship. (in the past I could schedule him to come over when they'd be gone, it was nice)
    Roommates are nice though, they are company and wacky stuff happens so you can look back and laugh aboutit down the road
