Why you should never live with roommates

I’m a bit upset.

I live in a flat with one roommate. Obviously, I pay more for this luxury. Also, I live in the center of Tel Aviv – which means I’m paying a lot. A ridiculous amount.

For the past 3 months, my roommate’s girlfriend has been here every day – well, I see her every morning and evening when I get back from work. I didn’t say anything at the beginning since my roommate hurt his leg and couldn’t even go to work. I figured he needed help. Another month passed, he went back to work, but the gf stayed. Now, a month later I asked him what’s this all about.

Apparently she moved in and gave up her apartment, and no one thought to tell me. On top of that, he called me petty. *ME*. All because I said that I don’t like having another presence in the house. Oh, I kept the best for last – he does not think she should pay a dime.

Yes, you’re reading this right. In Hebrew we say chuzpah. That was a week ago. He told me they’ll figure something out. He has not said a thing to me since, and I’m getting the feeling we’re not on speaking terms anymore – on his side at least.

So I tried doing it the nice way instead of going straight to the landlord. I guess nice doesn’t work with some people. How does anyone think that kind of behavior is ok? It’s beyond me. I’m really upset.

  1. Yeah, roommates can be hell. For me it has to be someone extremely unique and understanding. I’d be pretty upset, especially since I’m an introvert, who needs to know someone well before they are invited into my domain, and that my feelings were pushed aside. Tough situation

    • Same here. I feel like my trust and personal space were violated.
      I’m trying to concentrate on letting go of my hostile feeling – it’s exhausting carrying them around.
