guy rooming with girls?

<p>I will be staying at my university over the summer break, which is about 10 weeks for a research job. At first I signed up for the university housing. Then I realized that it's much cheaper to rent a bedroom in an apartment through sublease. This makes me save more than $500. Now, I am basically facing these two options. Option one: a $250/mo bedroom with no roommate in the apartment; option two: a $200/mo bedroom with two females in the apartment, who for some reason are not going home either. I am a guy by the way. These bedrooms are of course separate. I am tempted by the second option. Has anyone ever shared an apartment with the opposite sex who are completely strangers? What's the experience like? Should I just stick with the more expensive one or find cheaper deal with no female roommate to avoid the complication?</p>

<p>Things could get messy, but things could get rather interesting ;)
It could be a rather fun and unique experience. Besides, they'll bring friends over and you'll have access to them :P</p>

<p>I agree with Steve. Especially if they're hot.</p>

<p>I lived with one girl and a guy last year and it was fine. It's not like they're gonna have pajamas parties, don't get too excited. :) But it was perfectly normal, as long as you're not messy, they will be perfectly cool. It was a good experience. I have a few friends who had 2 and 3 girl roommates with no other guys but themselves and they thought it was perfectly normal as well.</p>

<p>I'd say go for it unless you're currently in a relationship with someone. My last boyfriend currently shares a dorm complex with a couple other guys and four or so girls which he really likes... however, that is why he's my LAST boyfriend and not my CURRENT boyfriend. If you're in a relationship with someone, be sure to talk with them about the concept of having a co-ed roommate before you jump into it because otherwise things could get messy.</p>

<p>at least you got your own bedroom to fart in and what not. i'd say it'll be a good summer</p>

<p>Uhm, I don't see what's wrong about that? You're all people. It's not like you're going to have threesomes with each other just because you live under the same roof. o_O</p>

<p>It shouldn't be too much of a problem, but if it bothers you, remember that it's only a $50/mo difference and you should do what you're comfortable with.</p>

<p>I lived in a house with 3 girls and one other guy (I only knew the guy) - really, it's no big deal.</p>

<p>remember: when living with girls.. put the toilet seat down.</p>
