My college roommate sucks. He is a year younger than me, he snores, his girlfriend basically lives in our room even though its against the rules but he is friends with the RA so nothing will happen if I complain, because she lives here they get in stupid fights all the time, he never once has taken out the garbage or recycling, he smokes cigars, he basically bought out the entire Campbell's soup isle from our grocery store and has it stocked in our room, he never locks the door because his girlfriend doesn't have a key which is perfect because its not like I have thousands of dollars in electronics in my room and its not like my college isn't in the middle of a city with a less than stellar reputation on crime, when I leave for class and lock the door I usually get a call 10 minutes later as I am walking to class asking me if I can come and let him in the room because he doesn't have his key, he randomly barges into the room at the weirdest hours and stays up till like 4 in the morning mumbling bs to his girlfriend who is sleeping in our room now, they sleep in their underwear (I mean I dont sleep with a shirt on all that often but at least I have shorts on), oh look big surprise they are fighting again right as I'm typing this, he doesn't even play videogames or like anime all he does is rent movies, the first week of school he asked me if he could borrow my car to take his girlfriend out on a date, I got him something from Taco Bell and he said he would pay me back but he never did, and he uses nothing but axe body spray products.
TL;DR he is an annoying d-bag.

But I'm too nice of a person to call him out on all this crap, although I've had to tell them to shut up and go to sleep at 4:30am during one of their stupid fights. I'm not intimidated by him or anything either I'm like a half-foot taller than him and outweigh him by about 30lbs. I'm just naturally a non-confrontational person and want nothing more than to get this semester over with and never have to deal with these two again.

Phew Anyway to not make this just an attention whore post, how have your roommates been? Were they as annoying as mine or did you get along nicely and become friends?

Um if your roomate is going againest the school rules you need to tell the school officials... Its inappropriate and rude to you..
I've heard lots of stories about bad roomates but i don't think you should have to deal with that... People drop out of school because of things like this... Sorry if im of no help...

Dorms suck, huh? If his girlfriend has a single you should trade with her.

he asked me if he could borrow my car to take his girlfriend out on a date, I got him something from Taco Bell and he said he would pay me back but he never did


So, he borrowed your car? I really hope he doesn't wreck it....He sounds like a crappy roommate and a crappy boyfriend....
And he didn't pay you back for the taco's?...what a...

My best advice...
Leave now, dude.
Nothing but trouble will come your way.

As for me?
I got my own pad now.
Though, not all roommates are bad, or I've never had a 'bad' one.

hahahah sucks for you man. my only room mates used to be 2 of my best friends (a couple) and my older brother. we all shared a house and the only arguing they did was in bed so ive had to tell them to shut up in the early hours a few times lol. aside from that i guess i was lucky enough not to have to room with strangers. btw if he fucks up and forgets his key then hes shit out of luck ide say.

Last year my old roommate and my friend (who would become my new roomate) all watched Death Note together. It was the fisrt anime my former roommate had watched, besides DBZ and the such. Eventually my old roommate became super religous and just pissed all of us off because thats all he would ever talk about.

The next school year he became a RA at another hall and my other friend moved into my room. Well it turns out that over the summer he got really into anime and now we watch anime all the time. I'm showing him all the biggest titles and we are having a great time!

I've also had a football player as a roommate once, back in my very first semester of college. He was a terrible roommate!

I started my freshman year with one roommate which I loved. We both liked anime and we had pretty much the same sleeping schedule, and when we didn't we had lamps that we would use in our room so the other could sleep. Then sophomore year I kept that roommate and gained four more. One was a complete slob, but complained that we never kept the place clean. We had a fruit fly infestation and put out apple cider vinegar traps (worked like a charm) to clear them up, but all we hear for a week was that she couldn't stand the smell of vinegar so could we remove the stuff. She left after the first semester because we refused to remind her to clean her room and take care of her other stuff. Then second semester the three new roommates that were left figured out my old roommate and I liked anime. One became a fan, the other two told us in the following year that they would like us to stop watching it so much because they felt uncomfortable around us when we were watching it. They wanted us to join them in watching Hannah Montanna instead. Then they wouldn't help clean the house when we asked for 10 mins on a Sat or Sun to pick stuff up and clean the floors, but instead we got tears about how they had so much homework to do then that they couldn't help. So by my senior year I moved off campus with my original roommate since our other roommates wanted to live in party central and I just wanted to graduate; the second semester the other roommate who liked anime followed us and lived with us. After that life was good except for the slum landlords we had for our apartment, but I don't even want to start with landlord complaints.

So I had good roommates and bad, I just learned that trying to please them all was an impossible endeavor and that I should just live my life comfortably, especially since I was paying to get an education not to teach my peers how to properly maintain an apartment/house to living standards. (Really, when you put stuff on top of the trashcan and it falls on the floor that doesn't mean keep putting stuff in until someone takes out the trash. Just take out the trash. Sheesh.)

Maybe they both secretly want you to join them in a polyamorous relationship and this is the only way they know to include you. Remember it's college which is basically like one giant permanent "No Homo" that covers 2-6 years of your life so feel free to experiment.

My roommate liked to push boundaries, I liked to punch people. She stopped pushing boundaries when she met me.

Yeah I was wondering if she had a roommate or not she must be living the life. But the dorms are not really co-ed because the guys live on the top floor and the girls live on the bottom so even if she had a single it would be on the bottom floor and not allowed.

Oh hell naw I didn't let him borrow my car! I wouldn't let my best friend borrow my car for a date let alone some kid I've known for a week. I made sure to give him the "WTF" stare when he asked me that as well.

Contact the school. Even if he's friends with the RA, that does not give him permission to act this way. As someone posted earlier, it's better to get the situation dealt with ASAP or you'll just have more trouble coming your way. And from what I've read on your post, your policy on "no confrontation" isn't getting you anywhere. If you don't want to get the school involved, at least do this. Politely ask him to sit down with you for a few minutes and calmly express your feelings. Tell him what you're not comfortable with and try to reach a consensus; make sure that he understands the seriousness of this issue. There's only so much tolerance a person can take. If he's exactly the kind of douche-bag you thought he was after this, THEN you must contact the school.

Luckily, I never had a bad experience with roommates. Freshmen year, the one I had was pretty chill. We didn't talk much since our personalities didn't match but we managed to get along. This year, I'm rooming with three of my best friends from freshmen year and will be doing the same for junior year <3 Hope things work out with you the way they have for me.

Contrary to my interests in adorableness and sarcasm and soccer I just dont swing that way irl. Plus she aint exactly a 10/10 would bang. To put it nicely she has the body type of a sack of flower.
