What Happens When You Hook Up With Your Roommate
“I woke up in the morning in his bed, gathered all my clothes and ran into my own room.”
A little awkwardness over morning coffee is the least of your worries when it comes to hooking up with a roommate. Turns out, things can go from mind-blowingly sexy to “I am calling my movers right this moment” pretty quickly. Here, 11 people confess what it’s really like to share a bed with someone who also shares your address.
1. I hooked up with a roommate for around six months—we also lived with his brother and his brother’s fiancée, who were my best friends. We would hook up, then not speak to each other for weeks. Then we’d become friends again and then hook up… again. It took me around eight months to finally break the cycle and just start looking for another place. I ended up moving to another state for a job, and we haven’t spoken to him since.” —Micha, 22
2. “I lived with this girl that I had known for a few months. We met through mutual friends and both needed roommates so I thought, why not! Anyway, one night after moving in, we went out to a bar one night, and met this gorgeous gorgeous guy, and we both really hit it off with him and took him back to our place. We had a really hot threesome and went on for hours. When he finished, she and I kept going. We just couldn’t stop! The connection was so intense and she just knew exactly what I wanted. We still live together and hook up all the time. We definitely aren’t in a relationship, but we have a sweet “sex only” thing happening.” —Maya, 24
3. “It was my first year of college and I was moving in with three boys, two which I already knew, and another unknown hottie. For our first weekend as roommates we all decided to have some drinks and go to the bar. Once we got back home everyone went to sleep except for me and the hot roommate. Sure enough, we ended up getting a little freaky together. I woke up in the morning in his bed, gathered all my clothes and ran into my own room. We were so awkward together for the remainder of the year, you could always feel sexual tension between us. As soon as I moved out, we started hooking up regularly! I have no regrets but you can rest assured I don’t plan to hook up with any more of my roommates ever again.” —Chelsea, 21
