From ancient Rome to Sesame Street and through out the ages there have been great roommate sagas. Whether you are soon to share your abode with a fellow college student or still putting up with a pesky younger brother at home, the roommate world is something we all have to face. Just realize you are not alone with your roommate “issues”. Look to the past or just plain fantasy for inspiration and advice on how to deal with that other person or persons living under your roof.
Roommate bliss is not just a fairy tale

Remember conflict is a part of every human association. If Shrek and Donkey, an ogre and an ass, can get along so can you and a roommate.
Reality is not what you see on t.v.
Unlike MTV’s The Real World bunch of misfits, you will HAVE to really deal with the real issues of your real roommates.
This ain’t no game show
Remember it is not always the last one standing that wins. In your roomy Survivor, you do not get roommate immunity and you do not have the privilege of always voting someone off the island.
Episode II Attack of the Roommate’s Significant Others
We just don’t know, but R2D2 and C3PO were bound to have run into trouble when they had mechanical honeys over. You should respect each other’s rights to walk around in your underwear without being caught by your roomie’s boy or girlfriend.
Harmony on your own Sesame Street
You have to work at your relationship. After all the two muppets, Bert and Ernie stayed together for decades.
Girl Power – The Power Puff kind that is…
Sometimes, you just have to be the hero or heroine. It takes a super human effort to live with someone much different than you.
Denial is not just river in Egypt
Anthony and Cleopatra are a classic example of avoiding the roommate issue by “playing house” at your significant other’s abode. Face up to what is going on or you might get bitten in the asp.
Sometimes Three’s Company
Some of you might want to try out a little coed roommate cohesion. Advice: Just stay roommates…no hanky-panky!
