I guess mines on his man period, I was joking around with him like I always do and then he got mad and threw an apple at me, so I left to get food and came back and theres a hole in the wall and his hands bleeding. Im now sitting on NS in awkward silence.
Moral: I guess dont take shit too far, and eventually youll start to get on eachothers nerves no matter what
-you're going to be sharing a fridge so make sure you guys split the space equally and make sure you dont eat each others food. establish an acceptable lights out time for week days and weekends.
-establish air conditioner and thermostat rules(find a room temperature you both can live with).
-get some headphones so your roommate doesnt have to hear your music.
-set rules for guests
-establish a do not enter sign in case you or your rm "have a girl over"(whacking it)
-if you see that the trash is full don't be lazy just take it out(I'm a total hypocrite for writing that)
-try to share as few things as possible(you'd be surprised how things that you view as unimportant right now can lead to awkwardness and sometimes conflict)
-respect each others privacy and belongings, of course
a lot of this along with additional stuff should be covered in the contract you sign with your rm.
I hope he eats all of your food and walks around naked. And fucks your chick.
Seriously if you're in school fucking grow up and live a little and party hardy! You want him to sign some faggot ass shit saying he won't play his music after 3am and you'll rotate who takes out the trash etc etc come on dude get a life...
My roommate and i got along great. I went in to college a stoner (not anymore) and he was a ROTC guy on a full ride. Thought that would be a problem but it really wasn't and we had a great year. We respected each other and that's all you need. We're still good friends and we walk in a few months.
my roommate keeps to himself and doesn't give a fuck. he lets me have the occasional snapple and plays smash every once in a while. but i have a sneaking suspicion that he's gay. but it's chill. i'm on the top bunk so i don't have to worry about waking up to him masturbating over my sleeping form.
Both put your schedules on the door, so you know when the other has to get up early.
Be respectful of each others shit.
Work out who cleans what from the get go.
Keep your shit tidy.
Make a guest rule (How many at a time, what time can they stay until etc.).

Imagine if your dick was so long you could wear it as a belt. Ive always had this stupid thought that a girl would come up to rub it because it was such a nice belt. Then you would get a boner and it would whip out and slap her.Just a thought. -radtad
This kid had all the right points.
emphasis on using headphones, not eating eachothers food, and the do not enter sign.
however what I quoted is the biggest load of horse shit. Share everything you feel comfortable sharing. my room mate and I get along very well and we share pretty much everything.. drinks, silverwear/plates/cups, xboxes/games/controllers. I would start getting pissed off if I needed something like a cup or water bottle and my room mate got all territorial on me.
when it comes down to it, you are living together and theres plenty of time for you to get them back with whatever it is you borrow/take.
