Breaking the Roommate Rule

Filed under: Advice — posted by Breakup Girl @ 8:51 am

Hitting (on) close to home February 2, 1998

Dear Breakup Girl,

I was dating a girl and as soon as I fell for her she decided that I didn’t meet her stringent expectations for a man (nothing to do with measurements, I don’t think). A couple of weeks later, my roommate decided to break the “roommate rule.” I walked in to find said roommate and my ex doing their thing in the living room. I am now a guy with no place to go. I don’t wanna go home cause I may find more shenanigans going on. Is it within my rights to kick my roommate out? Are people allowed to date their roommate’s ex? If so, how long do they need to wait before the couch-fest ensues?

Dear Battered,

This behavior is technically legal, but Melrosically tacky (see “The Tacky Factor” in last week’s column). What is within your rights is to ask them to take their business elsewhere. The two of them should have thought of that. They should also have written a letter like the next one.

  1. That’s really insensitive and actually kind of passive agressive, if you ask me. Might want to look for a new roommate if it continues after you ask them to be more “private” with their canoodling.

  3. Right here is the perfect website for everyone who really wants to find out about this topic.
    You know so much its almost tough to argue with you (not that I
    really would want to…HaHa). You definitely put a brand new
    spin on a subject that has been discussed for many years.
    Wonderful stuff, just wonderful!

  10. Its such as you learn my thoughts! You seem to know a lot about this, such as you wrote the ebook in it or something.
    I feel that you simply can do with some % to power the message home a bit,
    but other than that, this is great blog. A great read.
    I will certainly be back.

  15. I have been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never
    found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.

    In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a
    lot more useful than ever before.
