Rental Roommate Nightmares: Houseboys, Voyeurs, and a Female Touch
Read on to find out about all this and much more....
London:£50 Cheap fully furnished room
First thing you should probably know is I'm a bit of a perv and I'm looking for an attractive female house mate, the kind of girl who likes to walk around in her underwear or leave her bedroom door slightly ajar when getting changed. I'm not looking for sex or touching, just a bit of voyeuristic watching.
A little about me, I'm 28, single, professional, quite good looking. Love animals especially cats.
Our Take: I'm glad your new roommate loves cats. This guy doesn't want sex; he just wants to stare at you through all the web cams he's set up in everyone room of the house. Nothing creepy there.
London:£1 Cheap room - make me an offer
I've got a spare room in my house that isn't being used. I'm male professional and I'd like to share my house with someone of the opposite sex. I don't need the money but I do need a bit of a female touch around the house. So instead of rent we'd work out something were you cook and clean until it makes up what the rent should roughly be, which I think is about 300-350 / month.
let me know if you're interested or if you want to discuss rent arrangements further.
Our Take: "Rent arrangements" is the new vernacular for sex arrangements.
Orange County, Calif.: Houseboy 18-19 wanted
thin 18-19 wanted
I'm big tall white guy
No sex required, prefer straight or not too gay, no ciggarettes
Our Take: "Houseboy" is the new vernacular for male prostitute.
