I live with just one woman now, but a few years ago spent 6 months as the only guy in a 4 person group house. When I lived with guys, the big debate was whether to play the PS2 or the Wii. When I lived with chicks, it was who had some of the Diet Coke that one roommate had taped her name to.

Also, nudity/showering was not that big a deal, but I had a girlfriend most of the time I lived there. The bigger issue was when one of them had to go #2. There were all sorts of diversionary tactics to prevent me from knowing this was occurring or in fact ever occurred. On one occasion, I brought up extra toilet paper when one of my roommates had food poisoning, and she tried to tell me afterwards she needed extra to blow her nose.

Ummm...yes, it is. I was searching ads on CraigsList and realized that there seemed to be more "WOMEN ONLY" ads here per capita than in other cities I checked for comparison purposes, which is why I wanted to know why DC women hated men. Now I see why.

What other large metropolitan areas did you research?

When I lived in Indianapolis, I remember looking for a roommate and specifying FEMALE. I would have guys calling and asking if I was a lesbian. I was looking for a roommate, not a bed partner! It made you wonder if some of these guys thought having a female roommate, meant they got to sleep with you. It really is a safety issue more than anything.

I think a lot of it is just craigslist. You post a roommate ad or an ad to sell your couch and you never know what crazy person is going to answer. There have to be better ways or sites to find good roommates! Maybe through your job? I see postings at my job all the time. I never had a roommate after college but most I just met through friends - several were placed with me when I was doing my internship at Disney. For the record, all the male roommates I have ever had were so much cleaner than the female ones! Regardless, I would imagine that the chances of a female being willing to have a male roommate would be a lot higher if the place you were living was like a 2 bedroom, 2 bath. I can't imagine many professionals wanting to share a bathroom...at least I wouldn't!

Good Luck with your search!

Females prefer female roommates cause they dont have to worry about a guy hitting on them & they can run around in their panties & bras & have pillow fights.
