    Hey guys I'm having a situation here with someone in my boarding house just not leaving me alone. I can't quite handle it myself but I'm reluctant to go to my housemaster. Any suggestions what I should do next? I have been thinking of grassing him up for taking drugs but would that be too extreme?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    it depends how bad the situation is tbh. even if you could go to someone, an adult, for advice (perhaps with a 'hypothetical' situation aha) it could help you decide what to do. reporting him would prevent anyone else suffering like you, and of course help you, but the repercussions depend on whether it remains anonymous i guess. not too sure about the drugs thing, it's a serious issue but also their own decision to do them- although if you're worried about their health, for example, you should probably talk to someone.

    honeyofcourse The situation is actually not too bad (at least no physical contact), but it's happening more and more often to the point that I can't stand anymore. On one occasion he walked into my room naked prancing around despite me constantly telling him to leave. The reason I don't want to tell my housemaster is that it will go public and I don't want to be viewed as a grasser

    is there any way for it to be anonymous? an anonymous email perhaps? you could at least ask someone with more experience dealing with this stuff (a teacher, friends, even your housemaster) but you don't necessarily have to tell them it's about you or the whole thing. it'll help to mull it over- definitely do something if it gets really awful, but honestly him coming into your room naked is pretty bad as it it. don't be afraid to report him, it's your right to feel comfortable and safe in your accommodation and people should understand that.

    My best advice would be to give this thread a read:
    https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=5047614

    And know that it's quite rare to have an easy solution.
