    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...

    My Freshman Year

    I was randomly paired with a girl at my university.  She was the complete opposite of me.  I'm a creative writing major, kinda sedentary, not a partier, not at all good-looking; she was majoring in medicine, a basketball player, a HARD partier, and fairly pretty. ...

    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.

    Awful Roommate

    When I was 18 and a freshman in college my first roommate was awful. We shared a mailbox and I was trying to be nice and picked up her mail along with mine to save her a trip to the mailbox. She then told everyone on our dorm floor that I was a thief and stole her mail. She...

    No Mold And Flies. Thank You.

    Lady From Hell

      For two years, me and my bestfriend shared an appartment with this flatmate from hell, a divorced lady in her late 40s, who worked as a financial manager (!) in Lisbon.  At first, I admired her self-confidence and maturity, and I was glad to have an adult flatmate. Well, it...

    Bad Lover Or Good Freeloader?

    He has lived with me for over 6 years (not counting the months he spent in jail.) I'm single, live in a big house in a nice neighborhood. I'm retired. He's half my age; we have a relationship, of sorts. He doesn't work much... when he does, he blows his paycheck within 48 hours...

    Cabin Fever, Musk, And Trash Overflowing

    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...
