    I put this under relationships, since it deals with roommate conflicts, a frequent topic here. Not specifically gay, but I thought amusing:

    I'm currently living in a cramped, loft-like, studio apartment with my brother. I'm not a neat freak by any means, but sometimes his slovenly ways gets on my nerves.

    I don't know if I'd ever have a roommate (unless he was a good friend or lover)

    But if anyone did anything like this to me, they get the boot

    I had a roommate once in my life for 4 months, my best friend of 20 years. We moved in together briefly because hey, we'd been friends for 20 years so this was naturally a match made in heaven right?

    For the sake of our friendship we stopped being roommates after 4 months.

    I now live alone but in the past ive lived with 2 extremely passive-aggressive girls who would always *sigh* very loudly if something was wrong (in the apt, their lives, etc). At first id be like 'what's wrong?' and theyd always respond 'oh nothing...sigh..."

    I just stopped asking what was wrong lol.

    I've had roommates once for just 4 months (other than living with partners). It was a gay couple whom I hardly knew. A good idea if you like constantly being a third wheel.

    If people are even half reasonable, the solutions for some problems are easy. Take, for example, the photo of all the hair care products in the shower. There are caddies available that hang on the pipe to which the shower head is attached. Some of them have enough shelves to store all of those bottles thereby getting them out of the way.

    How to mount the toilet paper roll is a no brainer. Just get a second toilet paper dispenser, one that mounts with suction cups. Then, on one dispenser, mount the roll one way and on the other dispenser, mount it the other way. Silly, yes, but it would solve the problem.

    However, I also have had roommate problems, but not for many years. One roommate cut his hair in the shower / bath tub. When I returned home, the drain was plugged and there was about four inches of standing water in the tub. It was easy enough to fix, but the disrespect that it showed for me was enough to induce me to get rid of him.

    When I was a student, a roommate dropped the orange juice picture, getting orange juice all over the kitchen floor, including under the refrigerator and in the bottom of the refrigerator. When I returned from my classes and saw it, I decided to make him clean it up when he got back; I just covered the mess with newspapers. As it turned out, it would have been easier for me to clean it up than to force him to do it. I had to explain every step of the cleaning process and he was angry with me for expecting him to clean up the mess which he created.

    On the other hand, there are some guys who are very reasonable and considerate.

    Yes, but good friends can turn into bitter enemies if they live together. Not that there are always problems, but there are risks.

    My first roommate was my best friend. I started hating him after the first week of living together. It was to the point to where I hated the way he talked, walked, and just everything about him. To this day I don't talk to him.

    Rooming with a good friend can be a good idea but it could turn out like my experience.

    Well, when you don't have an iron, you have to get creative.

    This is a great way to wake up on a Sunday morning.

    I hear you. I currently live (our second, and definitely final year as a roommates) with a super passive-aggressive girl. Nothing worst than that. Will move out pretty soon. icon_cool.gif

    My only 2 roommate experiences were imposed on me, in 2-bed dorm rooms: one was mandatory for college freshmen, and the other in Army enlisted barracks (excluding my initial training, when we slept in larger multi-bed bays, as often portrayed in movies). While I prefer to sleep with my lover, in the same bed when possible, when there's no romantic interest in the guy I find the loss of privacy a bit uncomfortable.

    College dorm: my roommate was taking Army ROTC, which I had declined, first year (1967) that freshman males had the option on that campus, but about half still did. At 18 I hated the Army, yet ironically 15 years later I was an ROTC instructor myself as a Major.

    So anyway, this guy would spend hours spit-shining his boots & shoes, and cleaning his metal uniform insignia with Brasso, which made me nauseated from the smell, dirty cleaning rags all over the floor and our dressing counter. When he came back from outdoor training his soaked fatigues would sometimes be literally dripping muddy water on our tile floor, since he wouldn't remove his wet uniform in the hall bathroom and wring it out. We had to clean our own rooms, which he never helped do, so I'd find myself cleaning after him, and even then our floor was always dirty & gritty.

    He also kept fully raising the venetian blinds on the windows of our male-only dorm, even at night when I'd be undressing for bed. When I pointed out that the public mall outside was open to females who could see us clearly with our room lights on, he replied that girls loved to see his "bod". I replied that I didn't want my own naked "bod" viewed by strangers walking by, but he wouldn't cooperate.

    Army: As an unmarried buck Sergeant E-5 I only rated a 2-bed room in barracks. The other soldier was actually not too bad a roommate, except he liked to sing a lot, and badly. None of us could be too messy, thanks to regular inspections, but he did keep late hours, waking me up when he'd return from the enlisted club or off post, often banging around drunk.

    Then he went on leave for 2 weeks, and one day I came back to find his bunk stripped and his wall locker empty. I went to the Orderly Room to ask the First Sergeant if he'd been reassigned, and I was told he'd been killed in a car crash in his home town a week earlier. His personal items were being shipped to his parents.

    I complained that I'd like to have been informed immediately, since I did share a room with the guy. And so that I could have sent my condolences and flowers to the funeral, which had already been held. The First Sergeant agreed I should have been told sooner.

    I also felt some kind of guilt, for not having been friendlier to him. And for wishing to have the room to myself again, the way it was for some months before his arrival. It made me wonder, irrationally, if my desire for him to be gone had been a factor in his death. icon_sad.gif
