I'm roomates with a friend I knew from High School, and I prefer to live on my own. I have done both and I liked living on my own. I can do anything I want, when I want and don't have to worry about the opposite.

I agree with ACS. It was better for chicks to have your own place. I don't bring them back because my roomate is kinda creepy and always asks questions about what I did with a girl and just creeps me out. I think he like sits outside my door and listens to everything.
You have no frame of reference, Donny. You're like a child who walks into the middle of a movie...

That guy reminds me of me one particular year when I was in college. It was when I was going through the peak of my bout with depression.

I'm not saying that's his thing, but it could be.

Yea I was thinking that too. He could be depressed. It could be chemical or just the fact that he feels lonley.

The worst thing for depression is to just sit around and its extremely hard to convince yourself that thats the case. Maybee extend a hand to him. See if he wants to just eat one on one or got out with a smaller group. Its not easy but maybee a little more effort on your part, I'm not saying you aren't giving enough, will help him out. If it doesn't it doesn't.

nope - smaller high school though.

And about the possibility that he's depressed...it's always out there. However, I think if he even is depressed, it's because his gf goes to school 3000 miles away - not because of any family issues.

His gf told me his dad passed away when he was 5, but that he and his family were never that close to his father so it wasn't a total travesty. Also, he came to BU early decision, so he could get as far away as he can from home. His gf was supposed to wind up at Tufts, Wellsley or BU, but got turned down by all of them, so she's out west.

My guess is that he is not depressed though, because he still didn't talk when his gf was here. He was smiling more often, but that was the only noticable change. When my parents came to visit that weekend (it was parent's weekend), his gf talked to them while he just blankly stared at them, even when they asked him questions.

Living with strangers for the first time or anytime, is well strange and may take some time for the kid to adjust. keep reaching out to him if you want, to go grab food or library computer room study hall. he'll come around. Also bring chicks back to your room ALOT!!!!!!

Sucks man, guess you got unlucky.

I am shy so I don't ever wander to anyone's rooms just to randomly hang out. However, I do leave my door open if others want to come and hang out or have questions on hw or whatever. If someone comes up to me, I'm going to answer their questions and ask some questions of my own to keep a conversation going to find out what this person's into. If I get to know them more and am able to figure out if their chill, I'll be more inclined to hang out or party with them more down the road.

I like to be alone a lot so I can get things done, and just mellow out by myself, I kinda prefer it that way. But hell, that gets boring after a while, so I definitely go out and do things. I wish I was a little more open to the people on my floor, but I'm not always around because of golf taking up every weekday afternoon and a couple of nights (yeah, we workout).

My roommate is pretty chill. He's from Seattle and a pretty big sports fan. He definitely likes keeping the tv on the espn channels or any others with a football or bball game on. We also both really like Family Guy and The Office, so we never miss those shows. We share everything except our computers and beds. I brought the tv, stereo (bose ipod, so he can put his music in when he wants and so can i), and mini-fridge (which we both use), he brought the microwave, carpet and found a free leather couch on craigslist. He also buys the booze so I'd pretty much call it even. We are considerate to each other as far as girls in the room goes and when someone has to get hw done, the other will mute or turn off the tv so we don't have distractions. He likes to party a little bit more than me, and is definitely not a shy guy, so he knows more people than me... and he's introduced me to quite a few people at Santa Clara. He knows where a lot of the parties are at (although u can go out and find them by yourself by just walking thru the streets). We basically go out to parties together and then break off whenever we find a girl or another group to hang out with, which we are both cool with.

We don't carry on any in-depth convos, pretty much just the 'Hey, how are things going with ur classes/ladies' pretty much like that. I don't see him as a guy I'd be real good friends after this year with, but we're getting along just fine and are making our college experiences the best they could be.

You should just ask him if he could be more accommodating to your needs, and you can do the same for him. (No, not those kinds of needs!)

Good luck!

Just a little update:

This evening, the RA took whoever wasn't at a meeting, on a date, in class, w/e to Pizzeria Uno's. A few of my friends, some other people and myself went (a little less than half the floor). I ALMOST got my roomate to go.

All afternoon, I tried to subtly egg him on to go (like "I'm really in the mood for pizza...u?"! "Have you ever been to Uno's before?", etc.). The most encouaging answer I got was a "umm.......maybe", though he was looking away. When push came to shove though, he said he didn't feel like going, and presumed to shut the door a few minutes after I left the room and probably stayed there.

I think he's a lost cause.

P.S. I realized most of my floor does not know who my roommate is, so they're asking for standing tours of my room (they just stand a few steps in the room cuz there's not much space) in hopes of seeing him and perhaps introducing themselves to him if he's there. ;-D And my friend reminded the RA that he believes the "my roommate = really an axe murderer" theory. :-D

Next time you go out or something. Bring the guy back some pizza or something.

be like here ya go i got ya something..don't even offer if he wants it..

just say here ya go...weather it be a beer or a slice of pie or a porno magazine.

just give it to him..obviously he's probably used to people treating him like crap and has decided he doesn't wanna deal with people...Make a peace offering

College is great because everyone is sooo much friendlier then in highschool for the most part. Maybee he's worried its gonna be like highschool
