    She Sexiled Me, Took My Stuff, And Spread Malicious Rumors

    We shared a bedroom, and she got into a bad habit of kicking me out to have sex, even though her boyfriend had his own room. When she did it on finals night, I had to come in and kick them out. I was so furious that I couldn't sleep and had to take my math exam tired. I should...

    It May Never End - I Have An Adult Roommate From Hell

    I need someone to translate the following to a roommate.  When I have tried to explain these things, I get attitude, I get told 'I am having my morning coffee, I do not want to discuss these things NOW', I get told many things and all of them show me it will not get any better...

    Like A Brick Wall.

    He is not a problem to live with. He keeps to himself, he pays his rent on time, and doesnt make a mess, but he knows how the world works, and what things should and shouldnt be done, and if you try to tall him otherwise, you are wrong. He refused to pay his share of the TV...

    To Hell And Back

    It's ironic, I think, that of all the people I was forced to room with as freshman, I was planted in the same room as a girl so dyammetrically opposite of me.  How do I begin?  She was a fundamentalist christian.  My own religious views are too complex to explain...

    My roommate admits he is blowing glass in his

    bedroom of our apartment. Seriously!? In an apartment? We have 7 other apartments in our building. Should I tell the management? I'd love to hear some opinions. My momma says "Tell them!" What if he burns the place down, then we're both liable.

    My college roommate was terrible. She's the RA, you'd think she'd be understanding about most things, but boy was I wrong. First of all, she wouldn't compromise to anything. Which is strange because I feel like those are the first few things two people should do when they are...
