6 Types Of Roommates & How To Deal With Them
The Odd Duck
Roommate Traits: Maybe she's painfully antisocial. Like, not only doesn't she have people over, but she doesn't even want YOU to have people over. Perhaps this is because she needs complete quiet to study biochemistry or the make the crocheted vaginas she sells on Etsy. Whatever the reason, this socially awkward duck isn't going to be down for dorm room fun.
Helpful Tips: Appreciate this roommate for who she is: someone who will never get in the way of you studying or sleeping. Quiet spaces are hard to come by in the dorm, so think of your room as your own, personal R&R retreat. When you want to do something more lively, find a friend with a fun room, and hang out there. Plus, you never know, as the semester rolls on, you might discover that your roommate is actually just shy and, once you get to know each other, incredibly cool to have one-on-one convos with.
