Should I get a gay roommate?

Hello friends!

I've missed you!!
I am doing alright... nothing special besides having to study for my exams... I am still procrastinating though. My first exam is this Tuesday and then I have 3 others in the same week. Wish me luck!
A lot has been happening and am quite excited to move into college. I already started making friends from there via facebook... I can't wait for college to start.

NOW, my university lets students choose their own roommates through some online forum thing as well as through facebook.
Do you guys think I should look for a gay roommate? Yes? No? Why?
What do you think are the pros and cons of having a gay roommate?
And how do you think I can hint that I am gay to the people I talk to and how can I tell if they are gay too, without asking them directly (which is awkward to do lol)

Please comment and also reply to my poll on the right.

Thanks  a lot!
Sam

Gay or not gay?! Just make sure he's a nice guy!!

I would actually prefer it to be gay...bt then i'm not entirely giving it my thumbs up! What if he's really into hooking up and always bringing guys over.....tht cud potentially disturb ur studies...especially if he's a moaner! :p

Bt with a str8 dude...u can't bring guys over, if u want to do that....n also i've heard a million stories abt gay guys falling in 'love' with their str8 room mates!

I think the best option is to go fr a str8 guy who's okay with having a gay room-mate!!

I think it is a roll of the dice either way. But it would be nice to have a room-mate who is on your wavelength. A gay room-mate might be able to introduce you to other gays guys also. Then again, you are not going to get much studying done if there is an orgy in your room every night! lol. Lots of university students fail because they spend most of their time partying instead of focusing on their courses. Work must always take priority over play in secondary education if you are going to make it. You don't want a party animal for a room-mate. When checking out possible room-mates you can use words like 'open-minded', 'liberal attitudes' but responsible etc. bfn - Wayne ;) (forget your social life and hit the books!)

Good luck on your exams. I hope you can find a compatible room-mate.

Pros are getting to know gay life, experiences and stuff and the only con for this is if you find some promiscuitate guy or feminised guy who will bring a lot of drunk/weird people to your room hahhahaha kidding... Dunno, I would like to have a gay roomie...

a gay- friendly roommate would be nice, Sam... You will probably find that the more important thing will be to find someone considerate, that doesn't drag his conquests back to your dorm @ 2 A.M. or live like a slob, and make you crazy, distracting from your concentration and schoolwork...

Now, back to your studying, you pro-procrastinator!! lol...luv, tman<3

naturgesetz said...

I said, "No," because I think that both of you knowing you're gay, and together for that reason can sexualize what works better as a non-sexual relationship. IOW there could be expectations or pressures which would not be there even if two gay guys happened to be thrown together by chance.

Besides, there is so much more to a person than his orientation. Why make that the deciding factor?

CoolCharlie said...

Well as someone who has lived on college for like four years i agree with naturgesetz. You’re at college to learn, get a piece of paper with a goal to have a better life!... Like Wayner said there are more important qualities you should seek... A gay friendly straight guy can be and I would guess be just as great a roommate with the potential of less problems then may come from a gay room mate who is not open minded and responsible...

Use the big head for this decision... lol
