Dating a grown man with a roommate can be awkward, but it is very common. If you live in a major city, then most residents simply cannot afford to live alone. Until they meet their life partner, they’re stuck in the world of finding roommates off of Craigslist or getting set up with a friend’s friend who also needs a roommate and just hoping for the best. Romantic couples who live together get to pretend they’re rich because they don’t have “roommates” but, yes they do—they just have sex with said roommate. The point is that, it’s quite likely you could find yourself dating a 30 or even 40-something year old with a roommate, and now you’re kind of in a relationship with that roommate, too. Here are awkward scenarios that come up when he has a roommate.
