I still haven't talked to my roommate...

<p>I plan on moving in Wednesday morning, which is earlier than my other suitemates because I'm a transfer student and their returning, but I still haven't heard a peep from my roommate. Is this weird?</p>

<p>Strangely enough, we live rather close together and I was surprised to see her area code was the same as mine when I got the housing email. I've emailed her and tried to add her as a friend on Fb (for some reason, I can see her accepting other people's requests and posting, but she hasn't accepted mine) and I sent her a Fb message. The reason I wanted to get into contact with her aside from the obvious is that I've been on campus once and never got to see the hall we're staying in and I wanted to know some things about it. No response.</p>

<p>I've gotten into contact with one of my suitemates who seems nice, but nothing from my roommate. It kinda feels like I'm being avoided, lol.</p>

<p>Seems odd. But I know the feeling. I am also a transfer and my roommate contacted me first via email. We went back and forth a couple of times and talked about what we like and stuff. It seemed like we had alot in common but then I asked her what she would like to split and she hasn't replied for a week now. She initially brought the subject up so idk. O well. I'm sure there's a reason for your situation. But it does seem odd that she ignored your fb request.</p>

<p>i haven't met a single housemate of mine</p>

<p>Don't worry. I lived with my roommate for 4 months before I moved out, and I didn't talk to him.</p>

<p>I'd be effing annoyed if someone were freshmanning me and sending me messages and trying to add me on Facebook because of a dorm.</p>

<p>^^Why? I sent her a 1-line email and tried to add her as a friend on Fb. (Didn't send her that second Fb message, actually. That was an error in the OP) Is that considered "freshmanning"? It seemed polite to me. I went to a CC first so it obviously never came up.</p>

<p>And another reason why I wanted to contact folks is because the school doesn't do surveys to match people up. They go by LLC for freshman and then group people together by major/college, I guess.</p>

<p>Ok so you've emailed and sent a fb message...can you try calling her too (or maybe you did that already too)?</p>

<p>I'd say just let it be a surprise who you live with. It should be too late to change roommates anyways, so even if she's an alien it wouldn't matter cause you're stuck with her.</p>

<p>^^Friendly alien, Shymalan alien...? What kinda alien we talking about here?</p>

<p>@iluvpiano: I didn't/don't care enough to call her, really. Aside from the fact that I think it may be taking it a step too far (for whatever reason), if she doesn't respond to any email or Fb requests, then I'm okay with it being a "surprise" when she moves in on the weekend. Like, "I hope you like pink, suckaaa!" Because it will be everywhere. Oh, well. Delusions, shattered. I blame television.</p>

<p>It should be fine. You don't have to be good friends with your roommate anyway..as long as you're not in all out war, you should be able to live together peacefully.</p>

<p>I wouldn't be too worried. As a transfer, I was placed in a suite with 5 other people. I sent out an email to all of them saying hi, I'll be living with you. I heard back from 2. I was a little nervous the other 3 might not be friendly, but everything turned out fine once I met them and we all got along. My first year of college, I had roommates who seemed super friendly/enthusiastic/responsive over email, but ended up having a horrible living situation from about 6 weeks into fall semester till the end of spring semester. So I don't think a response/lack thereof is a definite indicator of how someone will be. She might just be busy and not really paying close attention to emails/FB messages.</p>

<p>Don't listen to UAKid. He has been through some unfortunate events living in the dorm and he is ready to dismiss the dorms given the chance to.</p>

<p>Don't take anything personally until you have actually met your roommate.</p>

<p>Don't worry, this happens. Maybe she wants to talk to you and meet you in person instead of meeting you through Facebook. People do this so that when they meet, they will have something to talk about because talking to them through Facebook would answer all of your questions about them and it will be awkward if you guys meet because you already know everything about them.</p>

<p>If I were you too much, I wouldn't worry about it seeing as you've gone the whole summer without talking to eachother, so what's three days going to make?? My friends in a similar situation (only with him, his roommate has made it pretty clear that he doesn't want to have anything to do with him seeing how he's muslim). So even though you don't know anything about him/her, its WAYY better than finding out that you're already disliked without being given the chance to get to know the person. To be honest, my roommate and I have really nothing in common, and have only talked a couple times this entire summer (basically about who's bringing what and classes), so I'm not really going in expecting us to be friends either. I move in next week, and all I can do is hope that we're at least civil! Good luck!!</p>

<p>Well thats not cool, my freshmen year I and others I know was able to communicate through facebook before move in. You did your part, with no response I wouldn't feel bad not acknowledging you're roommate and wouldn't think much of the situation.</p>
