You Need To Create A Lot Of Room From This Guy

| Seattle, WA, USA | Friendly | October 21, 2015

(I am looking for a roommate and post an ad on one of those roommate matching sites. I am pretty specific on what I am looking for. I receive a response to my ad:)

Potential Match: “Hi, I saw your ad on [Website] and thought we’d make good roommates.” *proceeds to tell about himself*

Me: “Thanks for responding. It does seem like we might get along. However, like I said in my ad, at this point, I am only looking to room with a female. Hope you find a roommate!”

Potential Match: “I know you said you only want to room with a woman, but I think we’d get along great. Please consider me.”

Me: “I’m sorry. For various reasons, I really do not want to live with a male right now. Thank you.”

(This goes back and forth a few times, until I finally find a female roommate and take my ad off the website. About a week after my roommate moves in, I receive a phone call.)

Caller: “Hi, this is [Potential Match]. We met on [Roommate Website]. I was wondering if you still need a roommate?”

Me: *in disbelief* “No, I don’t. And besides, I already told you, I didn’t want to live with a guy.”

Caller: “Why don’t we meet for coffee or something? I’m sure if you meet me in person, you’ll feel more comfortable rooming with me.”

Me: “I don’t need a roommate! I am literally looking at my new roommate right now. She moved in last week.”

Caller: “Well, we should still meet for coffee.”

Me: *wondering if he’s just flirting now* “Well, I’m flattered, but I’m actually dating someone.”

Caller: “Oh, no, not a date. I’m hoping maybe we can still be roommates?”

Me: *at my wit’s end* “No! I have a roommate! Please do not call me again!” *click*

(Luckily, he never called or emailed me again. I have no idea why he thought he could move in with me when I was very specific about only wanting a female roommate, and even after having a roommate move in!)
