If you share a dorm or an apartment with someone else, can you figure out what type of roommate you are living with? Here are your choices of the different types of roommates.

The Friendly Roommate

In your first day in your new house, you will be greeted by this friendly roommate. He is someone who is hospitable and might even volunteer to tour you around the place or your neighborhood. He is someone who seems very happy to house share with someone like you. Actually, he may be happy with having almost anyone share the place.

This roommate might not sound very bad. However, your friendly roommate might overstep his bounds. He can be the type who will invite whoever into your place even without your permission. These people might be his friends or simply his acquaintances.

He may also be someone who is present on every party on the block. He knows all of the events and happenings within a 20 mile radius.

Having this type of person share with you might put your personal safety at risk.

The Workaholic Roommate

There may be rooms for rent which are located near business districts. At these areas, you may flat share with a workaholic person. His daily routine will rotate around work at the office and even work at home.

Sometimes, your workaholic roommate might be away most of the time for business trips or it might just be because of the nature of his job.

Whether your roommate is physically present in your place or not, you might still feel alone most of the time. Some people might enjoy this while some people might feel lonely about this kind of setup.

The Thieving Roommate

You may have a room to rent together with a roommate who "borrows" or flat out steals your stuff. This might not necessarily be someone who steals your money or who sells your jewelry. The thieving roommate is someone who consumes your food from the refrigerator. He may take just a glass from your carton or milk or he may share with your supply or breakfast cereal. A portion of your supplies also become his personal supplies.

The Colorful Roommate

This roommate is someone who is colorful, literally and figuratively. You may see that he has bright decorations in his side of the dorm or inside his room. His clothes are never in the shade of neutral colors. Furthermore, this is the roommate who is animated and loud. He talks a lot and seems to never run out of ideas to share.

The Dependent Roommate

This is someone who depends on you and all of your stuff. He may ask to borrow your computer. He may also be someone who will ask a lot of favors from you.

Dependent roommates may also ask about your opinion on his clothes, his school reaction paper or his project report for work. If you are someone who is always willing to help someone out, you might be okay with this. However, people who do not want to become caretakers of their roommates might do all in their power to avoid having a roommate like this.
