Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 59 People

    New to my rental for about a month.

    The landlord and I agree on sharing (some) groceries, and cleanliness. What we don't agree on is guests and noise levels...he has a female friend over twice a week. (He refers to her as a friend.) They cook for each other, drink together and cuddle. They carry on conversations...

    Interesting Is One Word For Them

    In three years of attending a boarding school, I went through six roommates. We had very small two person rooms, so you had to deal with your roommate, like him or not. The first one was alright, he was just never, ever in the room, which mean I was often sent by the hall staff...

    I'm hardly the ideal roommate.

    I never learned to share, I'm fiercely territorial and I hardly ever left the room. That said, in seven semesters of college, I got stuck living with four other people who weren't great roommates either. Freshman year, my roommate dragged me to the resident advisor ten days...

    Fat Camp.

    Her name was Basak. Pronounced "Buh-shock". She was from Turkey. Short, maybe 4'10'', 300 pounds, I'd guess? It might have been less but just looked like more because of her height. She was a sweetheart, really, but there were certain weird things she'd do that...

    Why Boundaries Are a Good Thing

    When I was in the army (the majority of my stories seem to revolve around my time in the army) I had a variety of roomates good and bad. Generally speaking if you were posted outside the mainland UK the accomodation was pretty **** and normally it was shared. I was stationed at...

    That I have. Over the last few years,

    I've had some family and friends as roommates. I've had my daughter live with me. The experience was great. We were able to make the connection that had been denied us, as she was growing up. Would do it again, at the drop of a hat. Love her so much. She was able to get...
