6 Types Of Roommates & How To Deal With Them
The Mean Girl
Roommate Traits: Some unlucky soul was the roommate of Rebecca Martinson, the infamous mean girl sorority sister. I can only imagine that having a roomie like Rebecca means having constant insults hurled at your about your clothing or your taste in friends or having unsolicited advice forced upon you about who you should date or what kind of activities you get involved in.
Helpful Tips: Your first instinct might be to avoid, submit or placate her. Don't do that! This girl feeds off feeling more powerful than you, so the sooner you stand up for yourself, the better. Get issues out in the open: It's not cool when you insult my sorority. Set up boundaries (emotional and possibly physical): You're not allowed to laugh at my outfit when I get dressed in the morning, nor are you allowed to wake me up by jumping on my bed and screaming in my ear. Be nice and respectful (don't get sucked down to her level) but firm. Stand your ground and she'll lose interest in trying to Queen Bee you and move onto to penning advice columns about how to get a guy to text you the morning after.
