Dating your college roommate
And at the very least, having contacted them will hopefully really fast-track your application to change housing.You asked this a week ago; hopefully you got to campus and your roommates are now your new best friends for real. This is still going to be four years of freedom for you, and there’s nothing they can do about it.Let’s get down to bossing people around on the internet!Today we’re going to talk about dating your co-worker. Living with homophobic people at college requires, in a lot of ways, the exact same skills and strategies as living with homophobic people at home.Go to your housing administration or office of resident life and tell them you want a change.If you meet someone your first semester that you actually WANT to live with, someone that you feel safe around, so much the better!
For more info on sending in questions, see the bottom of this post.Your former roommates never have to know that you moved out because you’re gay and they’re assholes; just tell them that you’re moving in with a friend, and they’ll just be pumped to have the extra space.If, regardless of how hard you try, shit still gets out of hand, you need to tell someone ASAP. Your RA, the office of resident life, the office of student conduct, your mom, their moms, everyone.Whether it’s the dishes in the sink, the boyfriend who always sleeps over or the loud stumbling back in after a night out—shiz will go down at some point, whether you like it or not.Yet in many cases, the issue isn’t necessarily the problem itself, but rather the way that you and your roommate it.
