Well then you have nothing to worry about. Not that it should really matter what I think of you.

I would think that as a freshman attending a far away school, you would have no choice but to live in dorms? And have to take your chances.

I live with 4 guys and I have a single. The walls in the house is so thin and all our bedrooms are basically right next each other. They sleep hella late and I can hear them screaming/yelling when they play LoL or when they bump up their music hella loud like in 2AM. I'm tryna sleep here 'cause I have to attend lecture the next morning, but apparently, they don't get it. Also, they never wash their dishes or the pans they used to cook with. AND THEY NEVER THROW AWAY THE GARAGE BIN. It really pisses me off. Like wtf, you guys piled that sht up and you just leave it there and when I do tell them about, they don't even care. Ugh. AND THE TOILET SITUATION. Boy, I have the courtesy to lift that toilet seat up when I'm done using it. You should fine the decency to lift the toilet seat up before you pee everywhere. I hate that. It's so annoying. And I don't like the fact that they take my food without telling me. I mean I'm not stingy about my food, I like to share, but I would like it if you told me or asked me of you could have some of my snacks or something. Instead, I gotta find out that I have food missing.

I had an incredibly bitchy room mate. She constantly whined about everything. She would have small get togethers, which even with 3 or 4 people, turned into a disaster. I ended up cleaning because she's too lazy, and I have OCD. Nasty shit I've dug out of the carpet. I could smell sex in the closet. Ugh.
This wasn't too long ago, so sometimes I can still hear her in the back of my mind yelling at her boyfriend over the phone outside.

And this is why I now live alone. With my cat.

My roommates have all been pretty solid. I went in blind freshman year and had a pretty chill roommate. He slept a lot but definitely didn't cause any problems and he was really easy to get along with and respectable, so we had zero problems. Although he was kind of messy.

This year I went with two of my friends from high school and two random people, and this has been fine. Although I'm the only one that ever cleans the bathroom and we sometimes have small issues, but since we have been friends for a while we can talk to each other if we have issues.

Overall my roommate situation has been solid. I'm easy to get along with, so for the most part as long as my roommate is respectful we will get along fine.

BTW OP, do you go to OSU?

Had to live in a triple for the first quarter of my Freshman year. :/
SUCH DIRTY DIRTY CREATURES.
I'm the only one who cleaned and one girl put WET TOWELS inside her CLOSET - so it smelled like wet ass in the room.
:/ Only good thing is that her mom baked awesome macadamia cookies.
I moved out in a week - best decision ever.

Roommates can suck and they can be awesome. Living with someone is very different from being friends with them. Most people are too self-involved to realize how their actions effect others, but if you can find someone who compliments the type of person you are, it is pretty great.

Good luck.

For some reason, I couldn't help but to laugh at the story. Not at you though. I can imagine how hard this could be.
But you need to gain the courage to call him out, that should solve your problem. Do it in a respective manner, and keep your cool. Another thing I learned in life is that we attract the energy we give off. So, perhaps there's something about your roommate, personality-wise, that is in you. If you change that, then you might attract more positive, responsible people in your life. Even if it is just a roommate. Anyway, stay strong.

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?


Looks like I have a brother in arms. That is my roommate almost to a T. Minus the soup thing and the cigar thing. I've resorted to buying a footlocker to lock my valuables in. Having his GF over gets old real fast. On an unrelated note if a roommate commits suicide the other roommates get a 4.0. and Patricia Highsmith is a great author . I jest of course summer is rapidly approaching so we just have to bear with it. I have worked through two degrees worth of roomates some good some bad some smelly and some really bad. Just bear with it.
