So, I'm moving soon.... And no! It has nothing to do with what you think it does!


So I've been looking at some neat places, they're close to my job, they're in good areas, but the only thing I haven't inspected were the potential roommates -- I highly doubt I'm gonna get murdered of raped, but I don't wanna move in with a douche bag of anything. And I'm sure no one else would either.

So I need you guys to compile a list of traits in people that could potentially make them... "Bad"

EDIT: Like, I mean jerk-like bad of just general indifferent ness. I want someone cool! Not someone mean or dangerous.

-brings his/her friends over without letting you know
-throw parties without letting you know

MUST HAVE character traits.


1. Asian.
2. Female.

Should be someone like this.

Lazy. I hate lazy people.

Which unfortunately is impossible to know until you've lived with that person for about a week or so.

If any of them looked like that, I would probably move in with them.

Find an Asian. Works out perfectly fine. Jk, no idea if that's entirely true.

Ugh had a roommate..... never again. I enjoy living on my own. Plus some people can hide their true nature. Imo it's best living alone or live with a real good friend that you trust.

Someone who doesn't bring a guy over and let's him stay there when she is gone.

  • Irresponsibility
  • Constant complaints of being "broke"
  • Inability to keep friends or relationships
  • Constantly switching jobs
  • Known for partying whenever given the chance
  • Negativity


These are somethings that can make cohabitation difficult.

I can only be a roommate with someone I can trust and have known for at least a decade.

No source of income or doesn't pay rent because this defeats the purpose of having room mate. It's also a good idea to find out how much the actual rent is to avoid being scammed into paying most of the rent.

selfish

Drinking, smoking because smelly and lack of self control.

It's not enough for them to be bad people. If they hang out with bad people then you could still have police asking you about how much you know about them.
