Roommate #1 -
Pros: Shared a common bond with video games and music. Enjoyed other activities such as fishing, playing basketball, and grilling out. Also, if I needed someone to grab a bite to eat with, he'd always go have lunch with me.
Cons: He was a bible-thumping douchebag. Didn't drink, smoke, cuss, have sex with girls, etc... No sense of humor at all. None. I would constantly go out and rent funny ass movies and tell awesome jokes and he'd just sit there with that dumb smug look on his face. And he'd ALWAYS have his stupid fucking girlfriend at our place. Girl was ugly, unfunny, and just flat out lame.
Roommate #2 -
Pros: Nicest guy ever. Would do anything to help you out. Great drinking buddy, pretty laid back guy... loved to play video games and poker.
Cons: We didn't have much in common as far as music, hobbies, and other interests. Our idea of what was cool was vastly different. He wasn't a great communicator. Really cheap too. Never around that much... spent 5 out of 7 nights a week at his girlfriend's house. Also, he didn't want to split a $40 a month bill for cable... so we didn't have cable. And he always tried to hook me up with ugly fat chicks. His girlfriend wasn't very attractive and her friends were even worse... dude would always try to get me to go on a double date with some lonely disgusting girl.
Roommate #3 -
Pros: Funniest roommate I've ever had. Pretty popular guy, so I met a lot of new people through him. Loved to drink, smoke, party at the house. Always agreed on TV programs, movies, etc... Never a boring night.
Cons: A bit of a trust-fund baby. Parents loaded him up with money during college, so he really had no desire to cut down costs of living. I was the total opposite since I was paying for my own school via loans and small grants. Dude would always have the AC running at freezing temperatures with all the lights in the house on. TVs, games, computers would run all day. Our power bill would be absolutely insane. He also listened to nothing but rap, which I can't stand. Biggest slob ever too. Our house was disgusting.
