Rental Roommate Nightmares: Man in Speedo, Nude Home Worker, and Free Rent With No Catch

You've got to love the roommate wanted ads on Craigslist. Especially the ones where the big red flags wave boldly on the roommate horizon. Sometimes you can smell trouble lying directly down the road.

Such is the case with today's ads. We have roommate rental nightmares involving a new roommate in a Speedo, a nudist who likes to work at home nude, and free rent with oh-so-many strings attached.

Read on to find out about all this and more ...
New York: $100 Special lower rent situation
I may have a situation that might be of interest to you if you are:
-- A female between 18 and 50

Benefits for you:
-- Sharing a decent 1 BR apartment at a 50% discount ($100 per week or so), safe, sex is not a requirement, being friends is Ok

Benefits for me:
-- Companion which I guess I am in need right now, in addition to small $$ contribution

Our Take: I'm glad safe sex is not a requirement to be the roomate of this guy lying on the beach. You can tell this guy needs a companion because he is lying on the beach in a Speedo all by himself.

Los Angeles: $550 nudist male to share apt
Looking for a true nudist male who is clean friendly and pet friendly with cats and a dog. Must have a job and be drug free. I live in a one bedroom apt and willing to give up my room for you to rent or we can share either way as nudist males whats to hide as we do the same and have the same .I work nude from home time to time so my home is oder/very clean i host nude events so my home is active in the nudist lifestyle so you must be too i am not looking for sex or a sexual fantasy. I am a gay male but have lived with my dad and 3 older brothjers ( all straight) in a nude up bringing in TX so i know how to respect others as i have also lived with gay/bi/straight males in a nude home and lived in Harmony so please send a face pic only info on yourself if you are truely serious please

Our Take: Wow. I hope this guy finds the nudist, pet friendly, drug free roommate of his dreams. I wonder what job he has that allows him to work at home in the nude? This wouldn't get old very quickly: Imagine being both angry at your roommate and having to face him nude every day. The ad does nothing to assure that this man isn't 500 lbs. Other than that, this situation sounds nude-tasic!

Los Angeles: $550 Nude male roommate needed
i am in need of help with living expenses so i am looking for a down to earth guy willing to share a one bedroom apt with me andmy dog and two cats you may take the room or share either way i need a drug free pet friendly true nudist with no shame i have a very clean apt in van nuys and i need a true nudist asap by june i host nude events and work nude from time to time so i need somone who isnt shy and comfortable with being nude and not shy about his body actions or function i am gay but i am open to str8 as thats how i was raised with dad and brothers am not looking for sex or fantasies please be real and looking no games send info and face pic

Our Take: Here he is at it again. Apparently the first ad didn't do the trick so this nudist decided to rebrand himself. Why be shy about body actions with your new roommate you met off of Craigslist?

in exchange for company, no sex !!
you will have your own room and bath,
you can use all of the house,

Our Take: How many red-flag catches are there to this scenario?
