Most people on CC complain of their roommates boyfriends never leaving... but my situation is actually very differernt from the average complaint.
Okay, a month ago I moved from Florida to New York for an advanced standing Graduate school program at NYU (its 2 years of school crammed into 1 year!). I am female and I have a serious boyfriend who is living in Florida (we didnt see a point in him quitting his good job and moving with me since I graduate in 8 months, so we are doing the long distance thing). I share a large studio with a female roommate who is a virgin, very introverted, softspoken, nieve and shy (I also believe she might have a mental disorder but I have never asked). Anyways, during the 8 month time I will be in school I want my boyfriend to visit ONCE for a week during Thanksgiving. The rest of the time I will be traveling to visit my boyfriend in Florida. I told my roommate yesterday that I want my boyfriend to visit for a week and he will not be visiting anymore during my time here and I could tell she was upset/uncomfortable by it. She explained she is uncomfortable around any other males than HER family. She also will be gone 4 out of 7 days my boyfriend will be visiting, so she will actually only see him 3 days (obviously we will out exploring NY during the day so my roommate will only see us to sleep). Getting a hotel in NY for 3 nights is not an option because it is VERY expensive and most are already booked up for thanksgiving week (I also pay $1400 per month for my half of the dorm and feel I deserve to have a guest ONCE!)
I am very frustrated by this because we are not 12 anymore... we are both 23 years old! The policy of our dorm is also that each roommate is allowed to have guests whenever they would like and it is recommended no more than 6-7 nights per month. I spoke with my RA who said I have every right to have an overnight guest if I want.
