Default Would you date someone who was...

Would you date someone who was living with someone of the opposite sex? For example, say you're a guy and the girl you like lives with a friend of theirs who happens to be a guy. Would you be able to trust that the guy and girl aren't doing anything together?

It'd raise red flags when I met her... but if I knew both of em it probably wouldn't bother me. Partially because I lived with a girl before and wanted nothing to do with her.. and I think she would have been equally happy if I fell off the balcony

Depends on many factors. I'll be the first to say that physical attractiveness of both parties is one of them. Also, different personalities (in regards to both people) would serve to comfort or concern me. If they both seemed like impulsive types, I'd be more bothered by them living together than if they seemed more mature and responsible.

No.
I'd think they were in a relationship, or at least "friends with benefits".

As with anyone else, I'd get to know them, and try not to judge.

Yes. Absolutely.
All around the country, all colleges have co-ed dorms, and for the most part, everyone lives like brother and sister.
Sounds like you have a hangup.

Can see this turning into a disaster, especially if they were sleeping together prior (or still sleeping together) and not being honest about it or w/e.

Well, I dated a guy who was living with his ex-wife. He could not afford to move, they were under water on their mortgage. He said she lived upstairs, he lived downstairs. I even met her. So, that is the way life is now...
