What are the pros and cons of opposite gender roommates? I’m 25F, we’re planning on getting a 2 bed 2 bathroom apartment.

  • OMG so many comments about sex, what's going on? I stayed with opposite gender roommates at different times for 4 years combined and never faced any problem. We were friends, still are, even though we are in different cities now.

    There was no sex. Indeed there was nothing sexual at all. All of us were single at that point. Now each of us, except one, is married. The only change from same gender roommates was getting used to seeing their inners lying around in the house somewhere or in the dryer, or probably seeing each other in undergarments or just a towel sometimes.

    • @hooli.xyz we shouldn't judge a fish by it's ability to climb a tree. Similarly, we shouldn't judge another culture by American standards :)

      They don’t have sex in your culture?

    • They do. But being a virgin at 27 is not frowned upon, or is not something weird.

      It is weird and I’m not just speaking from an American’s perspective.

      It is also weird for Europeans, Middle Easterns, Africans, South Americans, Russians, East Asians, and South East Asians.

      All those cultures I’ve mentioned expect a healthy, 27 year old male to have experienced what healthy, 27 year old men are designed to do.

    • Sure, call me weird. In India, it is perfectly ok to be a virgin at 27. That's where I was born, so that's the culture I have followed for 30 years. Sure there are lot of people in India who lose their virginity at 17, but being a virgin at 27 is not uncommon either.

      Americans and other cultures you mentioned are free to do what is perceived right in their culture, and not preach me what I should do with my d.ck.

      “Americans and other cultures you mentioned are free to do what is perceived right in their culture, and not preach me what I should do with my d.ck.”

      I’m not talking about rightness or wrongness of it. This goes beyond cultures. It’s more about normal behavior of a human male. And a 27 year old male virgin is not normal, regardless of culture.

    • You think so because you were born and raised in the list of cultures you mentioned.

      You seem stuck in this culture-based mindset when I am trying to tell you it is not about cultures anymore when dealing with that particular sexual behavior (or lack of it).

    • What makes you all think I was desperate to have sex and couldn't find a partner because the society was hard on me?

      I waited for someone in my life whom I felt a strong connection with and could settle down with. I met my current partner at 29, and am happily married. I am not sure if there was pride in being 'pristine' but I waited for the right person, decided to take it slow, and know my partner before we had sex. Some of my friends did/are doing the same thing. This is why I say, it's not uncommon to be a virgin in India until your 20s, many people prefer to find the right person.

      My roommates were nice people and good looking but one doesn't necessarily try to get sexually involved with every good looking person one sees around.

      Get over yourself and stop telling me all the stupid shit about the society, country, culture, or my sexual orientation.

      Not really a pro. As Louise CK said - any woman can have sex any time if they want. They have they power. So whatever.

    Cons- They will seek an opportunity to fuck you if you.
    Pros- You can get work done as they might think they can fuck you in future.

    So here is the thing about a lot of guys. They pee standing up and they don’t clean up. I on the other hand as a guy sit to pee. I am a clean freak. So if you are interested to have a roommate in NY, DM me. I am available. I have a house to rent out.

    Okay? GoT and chill?

      Cons: You might end up with a male roommate who sits to pee. The obvious downsides of this will become apparent after spending any amount of time with such a person.

    You get to meet their friends which could be a plus if you’re single. Generally more sympathetic towards each other compared to same gender roommate’s.

    Honestly, as a dude i'm just imagining what sexual frustration I'd deal with once she brought someone home for a night. Especially if she tends to be loud or we have thin walls. Maybe i'm out of line, but it'd be pretty awkward to me the next morning.

    I had better experience with male roomies. No, there was no free sex (I had a bf at that time), but I find it much easier to find common ground with them: no drama, always chill and friendly. Also my female roomies were much messier than guys.

      Had the same experience but guys were usually messier. It doesn't bother me. Though one time I got drunk and things got weird and then he started hotboxing in his room and it was gross af
