Rental Roommate Nightmares: Spooning, Underwear Parties, Nudists and More

Ready for some more rental roommate nightmare scenarios as found on Craigslist? It just gets creepier and creepier. Why can't we all just be able to afford our own apartments and not put up with potential crazed roommates in shared-living situations.

Today we've got a laid-back bachelor who wants to hang out with you in his underwear, a man who wants to leave the option for spooning, a free room with a small catch, and a nudist who requests that you don't bring home any tricks.
Atlanta, Ga.: $475 bachelor pad (atlanta)

I am very easygoing and get along with most people. prefer to share with other males as its okay if you wear just your underwear around the house. I don't care about your age race sex or orientation. Just be laidback.

Our Take: Hey guys, imagine the fun underwear parties you can have with your new roommate? Yes, just two guys being bachelors, hanging out in a laidback manner, doing all those things that bachelors do in their underwear such watching football and wrestling. Making dinners, and more wrestling. How about towel fights and even more wrestling?

Sacramento, Calif.: Please Read (Mather/Rancho cordova)
Hi i have a room im offering for free NO charge, I know you are thinking nothing in life is free and its true nothing in life is....
I would like to find someone between the age of 18 to 21 Female mature please, and clean, as well as friendly... Now before you jump to conclutions im NOT asking for Sex,drugs,love or anything close or even related to that...its nothing stupid or perverted please note that what you are reading is not a scam or a predator im offering this room for free,and there is a reason a small catch that i will mention when i talk to you wether by email or text/phone... I honestly dont think its a big deal or anything bad that will disturbe you from going on in your daily life...If you are someone in need it will be better because i will know im doing a good deed... Please text/call if you would like to hear the reasonable catch....

Our Take: One man's reasonable catch is another woman's frantic call for 9-1-1. What the hell do you think is the reasonable catch that can't speakith thy name in an ad? Are animals involved, or midgets, for the free room for NO charge?

Brodie, In.: $550 clothing optional living(furnished room) (brodie ln.)

I am a 41 yo gay white male. I am a practicing nudist in my home. Another nudist would be ideal or someone that has always wanted to explore the nudist lifestyle. You can be straight, gay, or bi just be open minded and have no hangups with nudity. This is not a sex add and nudisty doesn't always equal sex only a real nudist would know what I am talking about. Also, looking for someone that would not bring random tricks home as I will not do that to you.

Our Take: This is one step up from the laidback roommate who simply wants to hang out in his underwear with you. Of course being nudist -- you know walking around naked -- doesn't equal sex. It's nature. Except the part where you bring random tricks home. Don't do that -- no matter how much money they offer you. And remember: Your new, nudist roommate would do that to you either.

Philadelphia, Pa.: $295 Snuggle Partner (Abington)
Seeking female conservative to share Master Bedroom. Hot tub. Must not snore. Non-smoker. No criminal record. No exceptions. Honest sweet woman only. Wanna save money? This is the only solution I can come up with. Tough economy ~ this is the answer. No whackos please. serious efforts only. Pillow talk no extra charge, but you should be able to hold a connversation about things because that's part of the deal. Snuggling may lead to friendship and LTR. Good hygiene a must and keep toenails clipped. Spooning okay. Interview required - because this cannot be just any woman wandering around. I'm 52, you should be within 10 years either way. Trial period of one night to one week after which we decide if it's a go. This is no joke. Maybe it's not so crazy. I'm not looking for sex, just getting tired of paying taxes and the heating bill and every other bill that's coming in my mailbox . Meet first for coffee to discuss this ludicrous offer. If we're a fit, why not. Convince me why it could work.. Give it some thought and send me an email. We can discuss...

Our Take: You know what? This might not be a bad deal. Hell, you could just give it a try for a night or a week and see if it works out with this 52 year old stranger. No sex is attached and there's that spooning-optional clause that you can always fall back on. Let's discuss!
