There are certain things no one will ever know about you … unless they live with you. Your parents don't quite count because you can't really grow into your gross grown-up self until you've moved out of your childhood home. That being said, however, once you're mostly an adult and more or less independent, your roommate can be anyone – a classmate, a friend, a random, a lover, a sibling, or even a parent. Of course, the number of deep, dark secrets you reveal will depend on your comfort level with your roommate – it's easier to share certain things with someone who isn't related to you or dating you. You get the idea, though, right? The point is, there are secrets you'll only share with the person who shares your personal spaces.
Hair flowers can be left in the drain or intricately displayed on the wall of the stall. I prefer the latter, honestly. Plucking hair out of the drain makes me gag.
It doesn't have to be actual pads or tampons, either. My roommate (ahem, ahem) leaves her pad wrappers everywhere. Right next to the trashcan, sometimes.
Where you leave them. How often you change them. What kind you wear. How ripped they are. The grim truth of your stash of period panties.
I know I'm not the only one. I do humbly apologize to my poor wife, though. Sorry, roomie!
It's true, you know. Only the person you live with will know this about you. If they're awesome, they'll never tell a soul.
You share a bathroom with somebody, you get close real quick. It's impossible not to get close. The bathroom's as intimate as the bedroom, really.
A good roommate will know and respect your need to rush to the bathroom after your first cup of coffee.
How often you really stay in wearing pajamas, watching Netflix, and eating takeout, that is. Nothing wrong with it, either. Live your best life.
Okay, not necessarily your kinks, but your roommate knows more than you think, I bet, even if you don't share the details.
Well, not necessarily how long you CAN go, but how long you're willing to go before you just can't take it anymore.
Or the lack thereof. Guests see your place at its best, all sparkling and clean and smelling great. Your roommates know the truth.
Same, same, same. No matter what they are, your roommate knows – for any number of reasons, at that.
Whatever your vice – smoking, drinking, coffee, food – your roommate knows what they are. S/he knows what role they play in your life, too.
Fights with your parents. Disagreements with your partner. Dissatisfaction with your job. Roomie knows.
You'll eat wonderful, refined foods when you go out. You'll make gourmet meals when people come over. When it's just you chilling, though, you're all about the processed cheese and Twinkies.
You might listen to music, write, read, work out until you're ready to drop, go for a drive – your roommate knows how you cope, though, and probably when you need to.
It's entirely possible your roommate does these things on purpose. Who knows? (Your roommate knows.)
Any roommates know your deepest, darkest, potentially grossest secrets?
