Roommate Preference Poll  
Through the course of a meandering train of thought yesterday while I was waiting for the bus, I got the idea for this poll. There's absolutely no reason behind it except I was curious as to how other people's opinions related to mine. :)

Poll #193183 Roommate Gender Preference

If you were going to move into an apartment and were going to share it with someone for whatever reason, both of you having separate bedrooms, would you prefer to room with someone of the same or opposite sex?

I'm male and would prefer to room with a man.
6(13.0%)
I'm male and would prefer to room with a woman.
8(17.4%)
I'm female and would prefer to room with a man.
10(21.7%)
I'm female and would prefer to room with a woman.
22(47.8%)

You didn't have my option! :p

I'd rather room with a guy, but since that goes against my morals, I'd be forced to room with a female. And, seeing as I dislike most females (you not included, of course), I would rather stick shards of broken glass under my eyelids. So that's my answer. Shards of broken glass under my eyelids.

Re: Random attack by the Oolong icon!
The situation here seems entirely platonic--a friend or acquaintance living under the same roof, shared facilities, separate bedrooms. How's that against your morals?

Okay, so I said I'd rather room with a woman. But that's just cuase for that one time of the month I'd want to have a girl around, you know? Plus, I'd want to room with someone who knew how to cook. Cause I, uhh, can't. Seriously, I'm not allowed to cook rice.

On the other hand, I hate the smell of hairspray and nail polish and I honestly couldn't stand to have the bathroom filled with makeup and junk.

So I guess I'd want to room with a woman as long as we each had our own bathrooms.

...or unless the woman were me :p

I actually wouldn't have a preference.

As long as no offensive smell comes from their area of their house/apartment, male or female would be just fine.

A "Three's Company" situation wouldn't be that bad, either.
Melody: bunneh eyecomeseptember on October 17th, 2003 08:26 pm (UTC)
I guess I should have made no preference an option, too. Silly me thinking in black and white terms. ;P

I really don't care either way.

I've missed you, Melody. I really have. xxx
Melody: happycomeseptember on October 18th, 2003 06:10 pm (UTC)
I was honestly pretty hurt when you had removed me from your friends list because you were the last person I ever expected to remove me. I almost couldn't believe my eyes when I saw you answered this poll, and then I noticed you'd added me back to your friends list. I immediately did the same, and I currently have your journal open to the last entry I read so I can catch up. :)

I haven't stopped regularly visiting your site, waiting for you to get around to reopening it, and I plan on spending the night reading your journal to find out what you've been up to.

Hee, that's me very wordily saying I've really missed you, too. :) :)

xoxoxo

You didn't have any option for "I don't care as long as they're very tidy and don't smell bad." I'd rather just live alone, but if I had to pick from your poll, I guess I'd say I'm female and would prefer to room with a woman.

(I found you today and your website is very pretty, so I'm going to add you to my list if you don't mind. )
Melody: mecomeseptember on January 15th, 2004 05:20 pm (UTC)
Hehe. Thanks for your answer, even if there wasn't a choice for it!

As your journal doesn't have very much in it, I couldn't get a very good idea of what you're like. Even still, I've added you to my friends list, and you can read most of my entries now. If I find that I like you--through commenting and whatnot, I'll add you to more filters. However, please don't be offended if I don't feel like we make much of a connection. You seem nice, but I tend to easily drift away from people I don't have a lot of contact with (usually through lots of journaling interaction, as I generally don't regularly talk with many people in IM).

And thank you for the compliment on my web site. :)

Okay, you don't know me, but I know some of the people you know and who know you, and, yeah. ... o.O *shuts up, takes a breath, starts over*

I wouldn't mind it being neither female nor male, as long as it was someone I knew at least somewhat and was comfortable with. But I picked female somewhat randomly. So, yeah.
And as long as they wouldn't make a total mess of the bathroom, I wouldn't mind that being shared either. :P

Melody: mecomeseptember on February 8th, 2004 07:54 am (UTC)
Hehe, yeah, bathroom mess would definitely be an issue for me. I couldn't tolerate anyone who left the bathroom a mess. ;P
