    So ive been scouting out new places (apartments, rooms in homes) to rent out, so that i may FINALLY move out of my parents house. And ive been to about 10 different places to see what they all have to offer. Mainly looking for gay-friendly places, mind you, and all of them except one have had gay roomies.

    Now, i thought it would be fun, but these guys are just weird: messy, unorganized, WAY too friendly (lol), and just damn creepy....

    One home i went to, the guy who was renting the room out was asking me what kind of guys i was into and then went on to tell me his "type" of guy, and his description was me.... LOL

    Anyone have a weird situation when you were looking??

    Once I checked out a nice house with a shower that opened to a private garden that was lush verdant... and a resident pit bull dog that jumped up into my lap during the interview. "Oh, he just wants to play." NO thank you!

    If it's annoying or creepy when you see the place, it will only get worse later.

    I always trust my gut when I go to see an apartment. If my "spidey sense" tingles, I'm out of there. Pronto.

    We went to a second place that literally looked like the haunted mansion, and its renter looked like a fucking ghost. So that was definitely a no-go. Creepy guy....there was old OLD portraits on the walls and even an ORGAN, probably so he can play his Phantom of the Opera music....lol

    Stay away from "gay" roommates or situations. I'm sure there are plenty of places out there to live, with decent people who don't care about your sexuality. Your home should be your sanctuary, as MMTM says. Keep it simple and comfortable. The less drama the better.

    Whether or not your roommate is gay is irrelevant. Stay away from roommates who attract drama, whether male, female, gay or straight.

    Edit: I have a gay roommate that I only know by living together and he is a cool guy. Literally all of his friends have propositioned me for sex (weird considering he is 50) and he actually stepped in and told them that they wouldnt be allowed to come over if they kept doing that.

    It is kind of disrespectful to do to someone me thinks.

    never had a roommate. Don't want one either but if you have no choice id go with a straight roommate. In apartments go for the top floor. no chance of a neighbor flooding the place from running over their bathtub. also most break ends happen on lower floors. Visit at night sometime see if its quiet or neighbors hanging out in the parking lot.

    Another place i checked out, i could distinctly hear a sound coming from the upstairs bedroom so i think to myself "oh cool, i can meet the other roommate too while im here meeting the first one".

    Jump to, were upstairs and hes showing me the rooms and i go "do you think i can meet the other roomie too??" And the guy says to me "what roomie??"

    get hot female roommates the kind that date hockey players.

    Had a gay landlord a while back: totally cool till his bitch bf showed up (something about the security system) started macking on my man. Got bad (inappropriate phone calls) till they split.

    I've lived with the gay, straight, lesbo, hag, friend, and family.. I've been in so many different homes it would be impossible for me to remember them all. But the one thing I do know, is that you should never limit your search. There are fucking weirdos from all walks of life, and decent normal folk, too. It's almost blind luck that puts you together with them.

    Lol, SURSLY!! People use interview questions like:

    1) "Do you use any drugs?? If you do, we suggest you do them in the backyard." Me- "WHAT?!"

    2) "If you bring a guy home, dont be loud, otherwise we might join you"
    Me - "WHO THE HELL SAYS THAT?!"

    These, mind you, are just from one single person, and needless to say, i didnt choose on living there haha

    hmm. I miss out on so much by living in a city with cheap housing as Phoenix does. When I decided to move out of Mom & Dad's, I got a realtor, a mortgage broker, and bought a new home. I encountered nothing but normal people, and I've lived on my own since. Though sometimes I wish I bought the 1950's condo conversion with the original hot pink kitchen appliances.

    The only "roomies" that ever worked out really well were:
    a) Fiends from the college dorms. Moving out to an apartment was a relief of crowding, and we sort of already knew we were compatible. Still had some stress from time to time, but overall it worked out.
    b) Other grad students who really didn't know each other, but it didn't matter because everyone was always working and we never saw each other for more than 30 seconds at a time.
