You already know all about their questionable Etsy projects, that they pee on the toilet seat, and that they love blasting Don Henley at 2 a.m. Not to mention what will happen when you end up squabbling over the gas bill.
It's too soon for us to be really serious, but I do like her a lot. We're both 21, live in a house with three other people, and there's a strict 'no couples' rule when we seek roommates. Plus, when you date a roommate, you're not dating; you're cohabitating.
You never meant to develop those feelings for your roommate.
