    I've been sharing a two bedroom flat at uni with two girls and another guy. Now the other guy and one of the girls have got it together and have asked us to switch rooms so that they can share. It means me sharing with the other girl who is a good friend but that's all. Will it work?

    I wouldn't. When they split up you're just going to have to switch back.

    Its fine.... Ive lived with girls and as long as you appreciate they are different - ie will leave make up , straightners and knickers around - then there is no reason why it would be difficult.

    You might need to grow up a bit?

    OMG seriously you can do that at uni?

    And to answer your question, i think maybe they are trying to match you two hoping that you'll be like them.
    Ask the girl if she like the idea.

    It's a private flat so its no problem.

    The other girl is ok with it but has made it clear theres no chance of a relationship between us.

    It can be nice IF and believe me that is a big IF:

    If you like her it can be only a bonus but if you don't like her your sex life and relationships with other girls will be less to zero.
    Can't think of a girl that will sleep with you knowing that your girl roommate will come in any second

    I was living with girls when I was working on the seaside and it was different everytime so I can't say for sure it will suck or not.

    If the girl is messy and *****y it will be pain but if the girl has brian it can be pretty awesome.

    Have in mind that most of the decent girls have some brain deffect that make them look out for the room more than you ... so your clean duties willl be less if you know how to play " man of the house ".

    No different to sharing with a guy - I'm less likely to do it in front of a bloke than a girl!

    you can do what you like at uni in private flats.

    and due to accommodation issues, next year we can opt to share rooms (in official accommodation) and theres no rules against mixed gender shares. don't think i'd ever choose to share a room though.


    OP: i'd quite happily do it, i've shared rooms with girls in the past (only for a couple of weeks at a time) and it's never been an issue. you just have to be careful with where you draw the line as to whats acceptable and stick to it.

    Did you actually talk about what was acceptable and not. what did you agree?

    Impossible, you will wake up in the middle of the night and your penis will magically have inserted itself in her vagina. Obviously she won't be aware of the metaphysical laws of inter-gender room sharing and be the boy that cried rape, and you'll live the rest of your life alone, a hated social outcast and purported sexual deviant.

      Well, why shouldn't it work? If you're good friends, you should get along fine, as long as you don't try anything inappropriate.

      just stuff along the lines of if you bring someone else back, let the other one know so they can find somewhere else for the night.

      we probably should have talked about getting changed in front of each other etc and decided on a boundary... we started off just asking the other person to look the other way, then we'd just turn around, then after about a week we just gave up and got changed in front of each other.

      before this we'd both seen each other naked at one point or another while looking after the other drunk, so like it wasn't anything new.... but i can imagine if we'd lived together much longer, instead of just getting changed casually it would turn into casually walking round the room naked in the morning looking for something to wear... etc etc until a point where i can imagine a drunk occasion getting very weird.

      the couple of times i've shared rooms with multiple girls on holidays and stuff, it didn't get as bad as just changing openly in front of each other, but i think thats because there were a few of them and i didn't know them all really well.

      Do you have any attraction to her? If so, don't do it cos it will just be awkward, if you're just good mates then it shouldn't be a problem sharing a room
