Roommate's Girlfriend

Is alwayssssss at our house

I live in a 4 bdrm 4 bath house with 3 other people. 3 of us get along really really well(all knew eachother before we moved in). The 4th one is a lot different than us so he kinda keeps to himself but he's been getting better. Anyways, he's gone all the time for work and Ag which is nice but now he has a new girlfriend. I hate waking up and having him gone but his girlfriend is up and about the house. He even gave her a key to the house, I know because last time she left I went and locked the door() and she somehow got back in w/o knocking

She spends the night all the time, washes her clothes, eats here, everything. I think she still lives w/ her parents so I can't blame her for not wanting to be at her own house. I could care less that he has her over when he's here but it me off when he leaves and she's still here. We each pay our own rent so that's not a big deal, but we split electric and water. If she's here all the time I want to ask him to split electric and water 5 ways and he pay 2 shares(one for him and one for her). Other than that, she's not costing us anything by being here, it's just annoying b/c it isn't her house. Question is, am I just being a about it and I should suck it up, or should I say something to him about it?

No you're not being a about it. Fair is fair. She is practically living there, she should pay utilities that she is using. Who owns the house? Who makes the contracts?

It's a college neighborhood run by a company called Hammond-Jones. All utilities are in my name though, so I pay them and get reimbursed by my roommates(trying to build some good credit).

Sounds reasonable.
Have you spoken to him about it calmly?
He may not be aware that she's there all of the time.

You probably need to revisit the house rules. I have run across similar situations. If she is eating her own food, cleaning up and just running up the bills then you proabaly need to split the utilities again but, it is your place so....

Then you need to let him know, because this is your credit on the line.

We haven't yet, he definately knows she is here because he leaves her here when he goes to work. It's funny because EVERYTHING in the house is ours, he doesn't own one thing that we use. He's very picky about his stuff and keeps everything locked in his room 24/7. If he walks outside to his truck to get something, he locks his room. We have already decided to get a new roommate after the lease is up, but we have until August for that. She has a key to his room as well though. *Most* of the time she is here when he isn't she stays confined to his room, but she's still watching TV, lights on, showering, etc that all use electric/water.

The other 3 of us have all been in relationships throughout the year. Yeah our girls come over watch movies, party, whatever. But when we leave in the AM, they leave. His literally like lives here. I had one chick that tried to pull that in the beginning of the year and I ended that very quickly when the first time I noticed she had let herself in the house because I was still asleep...ummmm no...not your house.

You would if she had told you "NO"!


For real tho; nothing gained by keeping silent and stewing on it. Talk to him..



Either pony up some more on the bills, or she needs to show more skin. Fair is fair!

we had a couple living with us for 3 months and our electric went from 170 max a month to over 400 and never got a nickle from them. Needless to say they don't stay with us anymore. You can't let outsiders make you feel uncomfortable in your own home. I think you and your roomate need to make some revisions to your intial arrangement.

yea she needs to pay a bill or two. coming from experience with roomates, she can pay couple bills or go half on one person's rent...come to him with a cool attitude. i think yall should have a meeting and have all the roomates present so he knows it's not only you. GL!
