I probably am being a little too neurotic. However, I don't need a super-cool roommate. In fact, I can live with the roommate I have now.
The thing that gets me though is simply how aloof he is to everyone and everything. People here on the floor try to be nice to him and he shuns them. His gf then had IMed me about a month ago saying that she thinks it's the other people's fault that he has no friends, not his (she had asked my roomie about friends he's made prior to this). Based on visual evidence on my part, his gf is clearly wrong. Apparently, my roomie told his gf how he tries to meet people and they ignore him
In reality, as I mentioned above, never leaving your room except to go study really late at night, always keeping the door closed and never replying to anyone is not going to get anyone
He is like no one I've ever met, anywhere - I think that's why I'm so baffled. The only reason I really see it is b/c he's my roommate, so it's magnified. That's really what it comes down to. If he wasn't my roommate and lived down the hall, I guarantee I wouldn't really notice this at all.
The very first day we got here, I went to the dining hall with him and he didn't talk either. (didn't know anyone else at the time, and had already eaten with two hot chicks who waited till the end of the meal to tell me they had bf's [they really did]
) I think it's just a combo of his not liking anyone (he keeps to himself) and the fact he is a very quiet, asocial person.
And BTW, Seinfeld is AWESOME!! I remember that episode too...good stuff.
I see myself as a combo of George (his antics, venting and scheming) and Jerry (sometimes act like him - the way he does on the show), so your assumption that DaQ= George could be correct lol.
