Gotta see if she is on time with the rent. Cause the slug that lives on the couch right now is 9 days late. But I am digging the cooking and cleaning part. Now will she point out and hook me up with her sleazy friends? Because my current roomate hated when I did that.
 
2013-10-09 02:49:57 PM
How does she feel about filling 90% of the fridge space with beer, being consistently late on the rent and spending the better part of my day playing XBox? Oh, and fapping. Lots of fapping at all hours of the day.

I don't have a pony in this race but I'll point out that not everyone has roommates one at a time. Some people share a house with 6 people (*cough* college *cough*).

If she is that great why hasn't she managed to land a husband yet?

Also super trendy is not a good thing.

Egoy3k: CruJones: She sounds exhausting

Yeah that's my impression.

The best room mate I ever was the stoner who played WoW all the time.  Living with him was pretty much the same as removing one bedroom from your apartment, cutting the rent in half and getting a free upgrade for the internet package.  The only sings we ever saw of him were the occasional pizza delivery and a faint aroma of pot on the balcony. It was like living with an overweight,  slightly flatulent ninja.


I've almost been that guy before and yeah, my roommates loved me. I played video games in my room all the time, had an uncle who supervised Nabisco plants and would regularly give me huge boxes full of cookies that I don't eat, I BBQ'd all the time and was happy to share, fixed problems around the house so we wouldn't need to wait weeks for our landlord to find some distant relative to do it... etc. One of my roomies even had a baby when we shared a place and I'm such a deep sleeper I didn't lose a wink of sleep. Heck even my GF (now my wife) was sweet and unobtrusive... sometimes she'd chill with the ladies upstairs (I did the Jack Tripper thing for years with 2 female roomies) most of the time she'd hang with me in my room.

Unless it's a friends with benifits type situation, I wouldn't have the time to dedicate to a girl like that.... to much training required.
1. Mac and Cheese isn't food and does not add to a cooking resume. Learn to cook some real food and get back to me. A woman sacred of tackling the grill and some 14oz Rib Eye Steaks need not apply.
2. Saying you are tidy means jack shiat. Saying you can press my shirts and pants for me and have suit jackets dry cleaned for me means something.
3. Display some real skills if you are going to use the term housewife, otherwise you are insulting woman who can actually manage a household.


Of course if she can make a decent Martini and Tom Collins we could have something to start with.

yeah, one of my 6 roomates used to take a dump in a plastic Solo cup and put it under people's beds.  One of them practiced drums every day but wasn't ever in a band.  One was a violent blackout drunk.  One used to scream out our livingroom window down to people on the street every night.  (one was kind of normal)  None of them paid bills or cleaned or did dishes.  I'll take the attention craving bikini girl who cooks.

Ad doesn't say she puts out. I have a rule, if I'm living with a woman that I'm not related to and who is at least reasonably attractive, she must either put out for me or regularly and frequently have reasonably attractive women friends (no pros) over who will take up the slack.

It's a rule, and I live by it. We all need rules to live by, after all.

blatz514: Hipster?  No thanks.


Some of my best roommates have been hipsters.

What turns me off is the repeated use of the word "creative".  Anyone that describes themselves with the word "creative" repeatedly is going to actually spend 90% of her time  telling everyone in earshot about how hipster she is.  This means she's boring and also won't shut the hell up, kind of a killer for a room-mate relationship.

I didn't hang out with or even really talk to my hipster roomie much.  That was a big part of why we really liked each other and stayed together for almost three years.  Completely divergent majors (in undergrad at the time), different schedules, different social circles, and the extent of three years of conversation was about an hour or two about contract renewal and about half an hour accumulated of "Hey, Jim, want a beer?" "Sure" and "Hey, Shane, got some leftover rice in that can" "Thanks."  farking roommate perfection.

//For reference, this was even though our apartment was a one-room that we shared with 1-2 additional roommates.  I's poor.

Look at her Twitter profile pic and make that decision for yourself. (gotta RTFA)

post pic for those of us at work.

The background pic on her Twitter page is staged to make her look like a celebrity surrounded by bodyguards and paparazzi. She's a full-throttle attention whore.

I'm pretty social normally, but a roommate selling themselves as some sort of super awesome partygoer sounds like a potential nightmare. The day I left college pretty much marked the day I started to go to bed on most weeknights by 10:30pm. I only need about 6 hours of sleep to function, but damn it, anything less than that and I'm not suitable to interact with other humans for the next 24 hours.

Even if she doesn't drink herself stupid, she sounds like the kind of person that just LOVES to have people over all the damn time. Sorry kid, but even if you bring friends over who put out, I'm going to be pretty cross if your "Taco Tuesday" parties go past midnight.

I was into rooming with Lauren before she sold out and went mainstream.  Got a really cool roommate now but you probably never heard of her

2013-10-09 03:13:43 PM

you are a puppet: Well she's apparently good at cooking and will cook for you. I like that, and the cleanness is a plus. Not a big fan of the excessive self-congratulation of it all though. I also am not fond of the idea of having a girl roommate. Or a guy roommate. I would rather pay twice the rent than deal with a roommate again (I've never even argued with roommates before, I just always secretly hate them for being in MY home)


Yeppers. Had a roomie who went from being laidback, hardworking and liked to cook but changed immediately once she was in MY apartment. Suddenly, she couldn't work because she had "headaches" that only pot and a 3am trip to the ER for morphine/demerol would cure. The only thing she was willing to be awake for was downloading music on Napster and trolling for suckers in chat rooms. Never had money for rent, always had money for pot.

I waited until she visited friends out of town, then I moved to a new location by myself, leaving her without a single stick of furniture or pots and pans. Then she showed up at my workplace, claiming I was only hurting myself by not paying for all her bills and giving her a free place to live. WTF? She didn't know I'd paid a fee and gotten my name taken off the lease. Heh.

Yeah.. a naked man isn't the opposite of what I'd expect to see in between her legs.

In college I rented a room from a guy that was the slob from hell. He had a dog that pissed all over the living room so you had to wear shoes there or you would find a wet spot on the carpet. I pretty much kept to myself, if I had used a plate or glass I would have to clean the whole months worth of dishes he had in the sink. I pretty much ate off of paper plates and solo cups to avoid listening to him whine. One day I got home from class and was just planning on studying and working on a paper and he was cleaning the living room. He told me I had to help him clean because he was having people over. I told him to point out what was my mess and I would clean it up, the pile of dog poop? Nope not mine. The beer bottles, nope not mine. The clothes? Nope. The chair in the wall? Nope. I was glad a month later school was done.

Ha, she's on my TV screen right now, because Cougar Town is on for some reason. Funny thing is

ironically her face isn't the most farked up via surgery one on this show. Kate from Drew Carey looks like a weird mannequin.

Noooo!  It's ironic because...you see...most people wear clothes but in this case....he's NOT wearing clothes...to make a statement...wait...no...he's ironic because she's including the picture of herself to show that she's cool and down with anything and most people wouldn't....so it's more ironic on her part because...he...

You're right.  It's like-10,000-spoons-when-all-you-need-is-a-knife ironic.

Just don't think about the words in her ad.  The message is that this chick is uber cool and there is absolutely no way you'll come home and find her making a broth from your soiled undergarments.

I was thinking the same thing. Nothing wrong with a person getting creative to get a roommate. You see enough ads for roommates and they all start looking the same. I say Good for her.
