If I had a separate sound studio away from where I stay, I'd love to have a roommate, but as it is I do not, so I use whole of place as studio, creative vocal studio, and having a roommate would totally ruin that.
Unless they too were into radio, they would not get what one has to do to create shows in advance, all replaying of tracks, testing 'characters' ect, they'd think I was nutty.
It would be like having someone do Bugs Bunny voice overs in the room next to you, you'd think they were nuts hearing them talk that way solo, but once inserted into final production you'd see animated cartoon character and it would all make sense.
Well I don't do TV, but I do broadcast, and it's kind of the same way in that constantly rehearsing skits, replaying skits, editing ect, and I don't use head set.
So unless they like worked night shift, it wouldn't work, and even then unless they were always gone on the weekend, would not work.
Because of that I think I'm just stuck living solo for the foreseable future.
Came close to almost thinking I wanted a roommate again.
Seems the only time I want a roommate is when I'm drunk.
And even then it's not so much I want a roommate but rather a friend.
But what about when sober, and just tired, and come home from hard days work and don't want to be bothered, then what?
I mean I know we always adopt to new situations, but with me I don't really need a roommate, I earn enough where I can get buy without one....and the peace that comes with that is enormous.
I mean at most I could save $400.00 a month with a roommate, but 400 dollars isn't nothing if can't have peace of mind, or if living with someone you can't stand. Cause when you can't stand someone, even hearing them walk around, will drive you mad, as you sit in room thinking 'I wish they'd go to work already'....and then your place becomes 'territorial'.
If I just had regular friends, visitors, people who visited now and then, the desire for a roommate wouldn't be there, cause just having a friend come over now and then and visit, then leave, would satisfy the need for a roommate.
I mean for me, I'm realizing, unless I'm in Love with someone, or physically attracted to them, just having a bland, same sex, roommate would begin to annoy me after a while.
There would have to be something 'erotic' about my roommate to make me want to keep them around....and 'erotic', not just in sexual sense, but intellectual sense, like they'd have to be hyper smart, or playful, or have witty sense of humor, or a artist, just something special about them to lift either my visual or spiritual or mental spirits.
But to just have some construction worker type of 9-5 roommate who just went to their room, watched TV, and ate food all the time, I don't know.
I guess I'm just not that desperate yet where I need a roommate, and that's good.
I'm realizing what I need is a friend, not some generic roommate.
With me, even if I had a male roommate, they'd have to be 'sexy' to me, either in a feminine type way or masculine type way, there's have to be something about them that physically stood out, but if they were just some average type, with no flair, I'd become annoyed with them.
I mean think about it, with a roommate, you're both going to be home together for large swaths of time, during storms, during holidays, ext, and eventually your going to have to get to know one another, and talk...that's just human nature, I mean even if have a pet, notice your pet dog or cat likes to occupy the same room or 'space' your in?
That's what social animals do, social animals like company, period.
So if had a roommate, regardless of gender or orientation, eventually you're both going to get more and more curious about one another, and then add alcohol to the mix, or some put in adds '420 friendly', which would disqualify them from living with me cause I can't have that stuff near me and don't want to be associated with it right now.
Many jobs randomly drug test, and the last thing I'd need, while say drunk, is to get high, and then be given random drug test.
Also, would never want anything illegal inside of place, I mean I'm still 'here', cause I've always walked a straight line, and wouldn't want roommates habits gumming that up.
But that aside, as mentioned above, if living together with anyone, sooner or later will get curious about each other, will observe each other, study each other, even fantasize about each other. You don't think Janet, Chrisy and Jack thought about each other? on 3's Company.
Even co-workers fantasize about each other.....so why wouldn't you fantasize about your roommate if they were attractive to you?
And why would you want a unattractive person sharing your space?
I mean it's not like they're paying all of your rent, they'd only be paying a part of it, why would you want to divide your apartment or house up with person you weren't attracted to?, they'd become an annoyance to you after a while.
Even a sexy female roommate, if you didn't get along with them, would drive you insane after a while, just like how Husband and wives fight.
Anyways, just glad I don't need a roommate right now.
Ye, I only seem to want a roommate or even considering wanting one if I've had a few drinks.
What that tells me is that that's spurned out of loneliness and not nessesity.
I mean even family members, after a few days, can wear thin, how much more someone you don't really know. And depends on lay out of place as well, if a place is laid out so that you don't ever have to see or hear your roommate, that's one thing, like a garage apartment or something.
But I think the first night we'd be together, and say I heard someone walking around, that would freak me out, I'm just not conditioned to having another person in place.
They're probably more use to it than I am.
Romance is difference, cause with romance, you've gotten to know some one over weeks, months, years, and you're attracted to them, them you, but a stranger, what's there to be attracted to, especially if husky and dull looking.
I don't know, they should of showed more interest in me, instead of waiting till last minute.
Which tells me they're desperate for a place, again either no one wants them, or, more than likely they, like most, eventually end up realizing it's me who's the 'sane and safe one', not others.
And when people finally realize that, when that light bulb finally goes off in head, then I become of value to them, but by then my needs have changed.
I hope this person can find a place, or they may have to rent a hotel room, like in the movies....with neon light flashing, and the sound of sirens going off all night.
Not only that, but they never showed interest in me as a person, never asked me what it is I do, where I'm from, my hobbies, nothing. What it is is they realized after looking around that the place I originally offered them was by far the best choice, and by far they realized I was the most 'sane' person out there, a bit silly at times, but totally sane.
Now reality has hit them, and they're probably getting 'Hannibal the Cannibal' type responses, or being shown roach infested places with nasty carpet and cigarette smoke smell in run down dirty neighborhoods.
I gave them a chance, and they took my initial chance for granted.
I wish them well, but cause they failed to get to know me, they've given me no reason to want them as a roommate.
They'd get way more out of it than I would.
You have to endear yourself to others, if you want others to help you...that's so basic, but this person failed to understand that.
They had 2 weeks to endear themselves to me, and failed to do so, as such hell no will I allow a stranger to suddenly move in, simply cause no other place worked out for them.
