    So it's about time I move out of my current place and into a sharehouse. Here are my options.

    a) two girls, one goes to art school/ studies english lit (which is what I studied), the other studies english lit. I don't really know either of them. I met art school girl in some class a year ago and randomly bump into her every now and again, she wanted to use me in a short film last week and booya.

    b) 5 other people. 3 of which I've lived with in a dorm for a year and a half. there is 1) I environmental engineer guy, loves drinking and hates the state of world politics he's from penselvania america. 2) his asian/australian girlfriend. Studies actuarial studies, is a really nice girl. Likes fashion on eating like a buffalo and cheesy pop music. 3) another asian/ australian girl I almost dated for awhile there but decided to shun it ( I had just broken up with another girl in this dorm and was turned of the whole dating girls I live with thing). She acts like a little girl alot (its kind of her way of bonding with people and shit, gigling acting stupid etc). Likes art etc. 4) Some trades dude who I don't think I'm going to like very much on account of one 5 minute interaction I had with him and 5) this friend of the first three who seems ok, takes more P**ls than I'd like in a housemate and is kind of a chatter box.

    heres are the pro's and cons.

    art girls.
    * they like creative stuff, after 2 years of being a writer surrounded by engineers this actually counts for something. I'm tired of listening to conversations about the molecular structure of bugs dna and math problems. Its interesting for about a day.
    * I won't have to sign a lease with them, so if I don't like it, I can just leave.
    * they might be moving somewhere in a better location than where the 5 folks will be.
    * there are only two of them. Having to work shit out amongst five people will be hectic. It's impossible for it not to be.

    Big house-
    * I already have known three of them for a long time, I know what to expect from them and they know what to expect from me.
    * The fact that we're all living in a massive house means cheap rent and fucking cool house. (the one they are trying to get in nicer than my parents house)
    *the first two people I mentioned are actually pretty cool. I know they are reliable and would do their best to make sure things go smoothly between everyone.
    * they will do alot of the work for me. House hunting, organising furniture etc.

    art girls
    * I've only just met them. So many times (especially after years in a dorm) I've met people who seem to be perfectly nice and who turn out to be total freaks.
    * they both have boyfriends, which could mean I think I'm moving in with two girls but am really moving in with two girls and two men who eat all our food and use all our shit and invade my personal space at all hours of the day.
    * the house we move into won't be as nice, and will cost a bit more (like $30 a week. I can afford this if its going to save me bumping heads with people everyday. You should understand, I'm really tired of bumping heads with people. Living in a bitchy arse university dorm and working the job I do, means I have some kind of confrontation with someone at the very least once every two days. I'd like a house with some peace and quiet. Ofcourse this is not guareenteed)
    * I met the second girl today, she seemed very nice, but possibly a little passive agressive. But we got along well.
    *I'd have to house hunt alot more.

    5 other people-
    * I have to sign a lease, which means if I dont like it I'll be stuck for 6 months or will have to fuck around finding a replacement. this sucks also because it means I'll have to travel later than I orginally planned.

    * I already don't think I'll get along with 2 of the 5 possibly 3 of the 5.

    * the location of the house they are thinking isn't bad, but it involves a 20 minute walk for late night drinking.

    So make me a choice 12oz.

    If you live with girls it can be good, but they menstruate and are fucking stupid sometimes.
    You need Team Bloke in your life just for getting home from work and drinking beer moments.
    Us males gotta stick together.

    5 non arty people was my pick.

    1 the girls have boyfriends

    2 it will be like living with 2 girls and 2 guys just as you said

    3 i agree with jackson about the menstration and girls who live together get on the same cycle or so i have been told so you get double period pain for your ass

    4 in the big house you know the people are reliable and are going to help you out

    5 the big house is cheaper for more room

    6in the big house if someone pisses you off you have more places to go to get away from them

    7 big house closer to the bar

    Go with the big house it sounds better to me

    I can see what you're saying but I think it must sound different than it is.

    1) There isn't any real sparks between me and either of them. Not that they are bad looking, or that they aren't cool. But things just don't come off with those kind of vibes. And if there was, well... I'm not the type of dude who cuts other peoples grass, but I'm sure you know things happen, and boyfriends dissapear. But the point is, I'm not really thinking about in to fuck. It seems like a stupid reason to commit to six months of living with some people.

    2) It could be like that, and I'm a bit concerned. I'm wondering if I should ask them about it? One of them said she spends like two nights a week at her b/f's so I'm thinking maybe she rolls to his more than he rolls to hers. Either way, I wouldn't be putting up with that shit if the problem did come up.

    3) The menstral thing is true. They syncronise. But honestly I havn't met anyone who's really fucked up on pms. It's like they are aware of the stereotype and force themselves to behave as pleasantly as possible.

    4) I know two of the five people are cool. One is basically a big baby and one is way to constantly hyped up for my liking (see P**ls reference). The other I don't really know, but like I said over 5 minutes it seemed like we'd be falling out in no time. ( I could be wrong ofcourse)

    5) This is true. Like I said, I'm seriously sick of fighting all the time with people. I'm trying to figure out if the smaller slightly more expensive house will help this situation. If it does, than I really dont care about the extra room.

    6)This hypothetically is true, but in my dorm experience in a big house, there is more bitching and more people get involved just complicating things. At least if i fall out with one of the 2 girls there is no one else to talk about it but each other.

    7) How is the big house closer to the bar?

    Another thing that could suck is that the two girls have been friends for a long time, this combined with the fact that I won't be signing the lease could mean I won't have alot of leverage when it comes to sorting shit out. Which is not something I'm really keen for.

    dude...I gotta go with option C.

    Find another friend to live with and get a small place without all the potential drama that comes from living with a couple of girls or people you don't get along with.

    the girls boyfriends will be staying over and at some point in time one of them might get all insecure and think you're fucking his girl.

    2 roommates is better than 5

    plus they will have girlfriends you can maybe mack on.

    and you won't have a lease.

    problem arises?

    I live with two girls. If you're a reasonable, diplomatic guy and the girls are mentally stable, it should be cool...
    I've had alot of fun with my roommates, lots of parties. you just have to forget about

    A. decorating the house the way you like it

    C. making a mess all over the place

    D. being a proud chauvinist

    other points and tips:

    -decisions are easier with 3 people, 5 peeps can't agree on anything.
    for example throwing parties with people who have the same school schedule is easier.
    maintaining the fridge order, etc. it only takes one of the 5 ppl to slack off w/ dishes and eat everyones food and it's a living hell

    -getting the whole rent paid in time is easier with 2 people

    -more time to use the bathroom in the morning w/ 2 ppl

    I also strongly suggest not getting too excited about having titties bouncing around the apartment. the fact they have boyfriends & that you seem to be not intrested in the girls in that sense, to me it sounds like a good thing and a matter of keeping the apartment peaceful/drama free.

    everything depends on human personalities and who you get along with. If you already think you can't stand someone of the 5 peeps, i'd forget it if I was you.

    wait...are they the type of artsy girls that wear deodorant or not?
    might be tough living in a place that smells like an armpit.
  15. I'd rather listen to science garbage than art garbage. That said, 5 roomies sounds like a nightmare.
