This type of flatmate impossible to find?

Post by macaroonie » Wed, 25 Nov 2009 1:47 pm

Hi all
Tell me if i am too idealistic here... I am looking for flatmates (1-2 females) that are neat, clean, quiet, responsible, trustworthy, don't smoke or drink or cook chicken, and not the partying types who bring people home.

Is this impossible to find?

Nothing is impossible, but might be quite difficult.

A vegetarian nun might meet your criteria.

I remember there's this local girl on these threads looking for a flat as well.

I think you are looking for a girl in a coma. That would just about fit the requirements. :wink:

Duck (or any other bird) - ah no, but chicken nuggets definitely ok!
This post is getting ridiculously funny!...
But completely agree..flatting together is adjusting to each other quirks...

It maybe easier to have a friend and look for a flat than get a flat and look for a roomie.

And yeah, flat sharing entails compromises.

Funny, I've been looking for the same thing . . . minus the neat, clean, quiet, responsible, trustworthy, non-smoking, non-drinking, partying chicken-eaters.

Hmm, do you put out? Are you hot? I may consider you as my flatmate as long as you bring a female friedn and send photos prior to our meeting.

Oh, I can be flexible on the chicken thing.

Is it that bad? ok what if i minus the chicken thing? Surely these characteristics are desirable in flatmates right?

Just have a thing for chicken (all birds actually) wouldn't feel comfortable seeing a whole carcass cooking in the kitchen
