    Not everyone is lucky enough to have a husband, partner, or live-in boyfriend.

    I live with 3 other people (In Santa Cruz, unless you make bank, having a 4-bedroom home near the beach definitely requires you to live with housemates - but you get what you pay for icon_biggrin.gif). 2 are straight boys, 1 is a lesbian (70%, I think) and I'm the bona fide homo-seckshual.

    Honestly, we don't have a problem with it. I mean, it is the bay area, so being gay isn't a problem. We do well together, though I get along with one of them more than the others. He and I have considered moving in together because we get along splendidly - and no, he's most definitely NOT gay. And I'm perfectly happy with that icon_smile.gif

    I live with 3 other guys. Two of us are gay, the other two are straight. We hardly ever talk to each other. Aside from it being cheap, I have no business living here. Our sexuality isnt the problem. The two straight guys are pigs, never cleaning up after themselves and have absolutely no idea what communication is. It works because we don't interact with each other.

    I had a str8 roomy for about 6 months while him & his wife were separated.
    Now they've been back together for over two years.
    Yesterday, they just moved into the duplex next to mine.
    We'll all still best friends.
    And for all you perverts who'll ask: Yes, I did him, and his wife don't give a fuck. icon_biggrin.gif

    straight room mates are the only room mates I've had, they are really fun. With the exception of my first room mate (who I just wasn't too fun). Of course, I don't know many gay people, let alone ones I'd want to room with. But its been incredibly fun rooming with them.

    I have never lived with anyone gay, not by choice, just haven't. Today I moved into a new place, sharing with a straight guy, I did let him know I'm gay first-hand tho, so that's not a concern.

    In the last 4 years I have had 9 different housemates, 8 girls, one guy, all straight. My current housemate is one of my best friends from university who is also studying in Beijing, straight girl, and it's such an easy living situation that I'm already stressing about what's going to happen when she leaves in July. icon_confused.gif

    I just finished living with 3 straight guys. It wasn't that bad. We all picked on each other. The one just did it to me more because of being gay. I normally just let it roll off my back, until I got drunk and then caused drama.

    I lived with a guy who was a flamer last year. I would rather live with straight guys. My roommate last year was very self centered. Him and I had many issues. I never came out to him but he knew.

    I would also take living with straight roommates or anyone over my situation now. I just moved back into my parents household yesterday and am trying to maintain my sanity. Lol

    Just moved in with one of my straight team mates and he's pretty cool about everything, except you can physically see his brain halt if I start talking about sex around him too uh detailed. We keep each other on top of everything in our lives and can talk about everything... minus sex. haha

    I only lived with straight guys it was a fuckin BLAST! But when I got hammered to the point I blacked out, ONE of my roommates took care of me and watch me throw up in the toilet BUT he would take advantage of me and he later told me he kissed me ( this happened 3 times)...this all happened when I was still in denial about being gay....it just made things AWKWARDicon_eek.gif haha

    Yep, I have a str8 roomie and we share a deep loving connection. It's like living with your best friend. We look out for each other, eat great meals together, try to find dates for each other, and give each other the space we each need to feel good. It works for us. Living together has greatly strengthened our friendship. I can tell him everything.

    Yes I do have straight roommates and it's awesome. But basically, there's 5 of us in a 3 bedroom 2 bed apartment. 3 are straight guys and there's 2 of us gay guys at the apartment.

    I love my straight roommates they are freakin awesome. They are very supportive and the cool part is that they go to gay clubs with me and my other gay roommate. It's like a crazy Frat party. I'm so lucky to have them.

    I live on my own these days, but I have had straight and gay roommates in the past. I got along better with the straight guys than the gay ones. That had nothing to do with sexuality, but individual traits. The two gays I lived with - one was lazy and spent all his time sitting on the sofa watching Kylie and Britney videos and the other was just never around all that much so we never bonded. I did have a bit of a crush on one of the straight guys - the guy played football in high school and had the build - but I knew nothing would ever come of it so it was just an admire from afar kinda thing. We are still friends. But I don't admire from afar so much (gained some weight, lost some hair).

    I've lived with girls and str8 guys while closeted and it wasn't bad at all. The girls continuously hit on me and the guys were always wondering where I was headed out to dressed up (very metro I might add).

    I'm thinking about getting a roomie for the fall when the school students return, I'll disclose me sexuality to the roomie, might make for better fun times and such. icon_smile.gif

    Not now, but I have lived with lots of straight men in share situations. Most are pretty cool about it, and while some remain guarded, they usually accept it after they realise that gay relationships are just as boring as straight ones, with many of the same issues.

    I also think many straight guys like to be admired by gay men, as long as it doesn't go any further. I had one guys who used to come into my room and read books in bed with me. He didn't like to read in bed alone when his girlfriend wasn't around. Nothing ever went on between us, and we remain good buds some 20 years later, although he is very out of shape now.

    His wife and children are also a big part of my life.
