    Hi guys basically just want to get into your heads for a second.

    Following on from my cheerfully entitled threads "The Worst University Experience" and "No one to get a house with next year and S**TING IT!", I am going to put an ad in on an accommodation board to try and find a house/housemates.

    HOWEVER I genuinley really really like male company, all my friends at home are blokes, and I am a wee bit of a tomboy, just havent met any guys at my predominately female uni. I think Ive been unhappy partly due to lack of male company. Living in an all-male or predominantly male household is a must for me.

    I genuinely dont have 'girl-who-has-to-be-the-only-girl' syndrome, I just like blokes, and Im up for a laugh and just want some fun and chilled out housemates like me!

    SO the question I am asking you is, how do I express all this in 1 line in an ad, without first sounding like a 'floozy' as they said back in the day (e.g. "girl who wants some fun", "girl who only wants to live with boys", "looking for all-male household" etc etc all give completely the wrong impression in my opinion!!) , and secondly trying to convey that I want a fun house/ Im up for a laugh or whatever.

    also, would a bunch of lads even WANT this random girl coming along? I wouldnt mind a couple of girls in there either just as long as its more male than female.

    Thanks if you can help me. Bottom line question is:

    HOW WOULD YOU PHRASE MY AD IN ONE LINE?

    It would be tough to state that you would prefer male housemates outright. Saying something like 'male and female applicants welcome'. I don't see a way in which you could single out the male sex without getting the sleazy men flocking to your door. Sad but probably true.

    Just put a normal ad up and then when you look at the houses check for signs of men, such as men being there, and then choose the house with the best people .

    Simply say that you are lesbian, this is a genius idea because:
    -it will scare most girls off
    -it will attract guys, but at the same time they will realize straight away that there is no chance they will **** you.

    advertise at primarily male dominated areas Sports events etc. to reach the demographic (male) that you want.
