Wait, They Lived Together? 7 Surprising Pairs Of Celebrity Roommates

Last week, I found out that Lauren Graham and Connie Britton used to live together and I was like, “WHAAAAAAAAAAAAT?! Two of my favorite TV moms used to be roomies?!” The story only gets better though.

8 Ways Avoid Waking Your Roommate Up During A Midnight Booty Call

We’ve all been guilty of it: the middle-of-the-night hookup that was so loud our roommates heard every bit of it. And possibly the neighbors, too. It’s not that we mean to interrupt anyone else’s beauty sleep, of course. It just happened. Er, loudly. But when you reach a certain age — like, say, when you’re…

Bro-On-Bro Violence: When Bros Assault Bros For Drawing Penises On Bros

Bro code rule number one is that if you pass out at a party or a gathering of bros, you have to accept the consequences. The consequences, historically and bro-culturally, are typically that you’ll wake up with a dick or several dicks drawn on your face. It’s not necessarily fair, but thems the rules. So…

Campus Confidential: Advice For Next Year’s College Freshman

There was a moment sometime during the weekend before finals week that I looked up from the copious U.N.-related documents assigned by my Intro to Human Rights professor that I had somehow failed to read during the semester and realized: “Holy shit my first year of college is basically over.”

I thought back…

9 Reasons Why Having A Roommate Is Kind Of Awesome

Roommates get a bad rap. And often, for good reason. I’ve had some seriously insane ones. There was the girl who made everyone leave their socks outside and the guy who left an imprint of his balls on our bathroom floor where he powdered them every morning. He was fun! The four years I spent…

Woman Sues Over Loud Roommate Sex

Most of us either have already experienced or will eventually experience the roommate who is just a little too open with their sex lives. I have definitely been kept awake by muffled moans, creaking beds, dirty talk and noises that cannot be defined while sharing a place with someone else. One of my friends eve…

5 Common Roommate Problems And How To Deal With Them

Living with other human beings is hard. Like really hard. And sometimes if it’s your best friend, it’s even harder. How do you tell someone you love that they need to do their own dishes and turn the TV volume down and stop having loud sex every single night.

Campus Confidential: The Roommate

I suspect that it is a universal (and perverse) hobby of college upperclassmen and graduates alike to terrify rising freshman with cautionary roommate stories of horror. This past summer, it  seemed like all I had to do was mention the fact that I was about to start college and aforementioned upperclassmen/graduates would inquire about my…

How To Deal With Your (Crazy) College Roommate

Roommates are a wild bunch, by nature, by definition. A major part of the college experience is being thrown in with a complete stranger and forced to live with them, adapt to them and somehow learn to get along without killing one another. In my view, given the roommates I’ve had over the years, they…

It’s time again for “Shortcuts.” For every question, I’ll give my advice in three sentences or less, because sometimes the answer to a person’s question is so obvious and the need to hear it so great, being as clear and frank as possible is simply the best way to go.

Girl Talk: Why I Forgave My Friend For Stealing From Me

There I was in the grocery, pressing the ends of a cantaloupe and sniffing it, trying to decide if it was ripe. Across the produce section, I spotted my landlord. I waved, a normal courtesy I extended the two times a year I happened upon him in real life. He left his cart, and came…

“I almost woke you up in the middle of the night and asked you to take me to the emergency room. I thought I was dying,” she said with a wicked smile. “I swallowed more than 60 pills.”

Dear Wendy: “If I Kick Out My Roommate, I Might Lose Friends”

I bought a house last summer and decided to ask a friend, whom I’d lived with before, to be my roommate once again. While it wasn’t ideal the first time around, as she is quite lazy and doesn’t have the best hygiene, I needed help on the financial front and felt I knew what to…

How To Deal When Roommates And Their Partners Stage A Home Invasion

Dear Wendy: Our Roommate’s Wrecking Our Relationship

My boyfriend and I currently rent the downstairs portion of his sisters house and she’s CRAZY so we’re wanting to move out. We had this proposition to move in with some friends of ours and I really don’t want to but he REALLY does. I don’t think it’s realistic for us to be living with…
