whatever. I did the adult thing and IGNORED it. But I'm NEVER trusting another person in my house again

A good roommate is hard to find. I went through several who had habits like partying at all hours, bringing cocaine into the house, not paying their bills, getting in fights, etc. I finally ended up rooming with this jesusy guy. He was lame and boring - I didn't particularly like him - but he was pretty reliable at paying the bills, and he didn't cause trouble. That's really all I ever needed in a roommate.

 

By the time I was 20, I'd had enough of the roommate thing. It was worth the extra rent to not have to deal with them.

The only roommates I ever had a good experience with were from other countries. I don't know if it's an American thing or the fact that we just didn't clash because I like to experience new cultures. Probably a little of both.

Roommate as in lives in the same room as you? (I'm not sure whether Americans use that term for housemates too, sorry for the ignorance!) Man I could never live like that long term even if the person was a saint D:

My housemates last year were saints but I know how difficult it is to live with people whose lifestyles don't really compliment each other so you have my sympathy!

Americans often use the term roommate to mean housemate, and find the second term a little odd/unnecessary. Or, at least that's the experience of this particular midwesterner, which may not hold true for the entire US. In my experience, one has roommates as in same room in college, but any time you're living outside the dorms and aren't poverty level and not living with your parents (in which case, you often share with siblings, at least when a little kid), you'll have your own bedroom. I get the impression that we get used to the term "roommate" in college and just keep using it to mean "the people I live with who aren't family".

Thanks guys! 

 

She said I was rude and ungrateful (I have actually been in therapy for the past 16 weeks and the one thing my therapist keeps bringing up is how I worry too much about being rude---gooo figure, LOL) She's left now. She was planning to move out anyway.  She just seems to be under this impression that I OWE her something because the purpose of me getting a roommate was so I could save up money and get a car (which I did). But now she's said thing like me getting a car was her purpose in coming here. When she actually came here for her JOB, which she got FIRED from. I could have had someone ELSE as my roommate and still gotten a car. 

 

I DID wind up messaging one of her friends and might have left some snide remarks but at least it was to one person and not the entire world; also, I messaged him about some stuff she left. 

 

Yes! A housemate! I guess I forget the terms get different. My friend from Turkey calls her a housemate, too. 

 

I'm so passive, I guess. When I finally stood up to her twice, she threw hissy fits and started throwing stuff and slamming doors, then posted that on facebook (wow). Luckily, she'd already been planning to move out. (since she stupidly got fired from her job)

All I can say about your roommate laving is... "GOOD RIDDANCE!" Now that she is gone, you should celebrate.
