If this is disturbing, you can change your home, but you can also take this as an advantage as they would be out most of the time leaving you at home, so now the house is all yours to study and when they are back they would be sleeping the entire day.

Whoa ho! Who’s that shouting loud which could almost wake up a dead person or a person sleeping may get a heart attack. His voices echo in the entire house which is annoying almost all the time. Neither can you study for your semester or sleep in peace.
Deal the feel: For such kind of roomie you have to be straightforward and say that their melodious voice disturbs you, so shout loud when no one’s at home or else this needs to be stopped. And if this continues you have to look out for another option.
5. The Passive Arrogant One

These type of roomie are not that inhuman to fight with you, rather you see notes all over the house for you. And they don’t like confronting so sticky notes are their confrontation. Maybe you forgot to put off the light and the note is waiting for you next day “Turn Off Lights”.
Deal the feel: These notes may be very annoying but think the other way round if things were spoken it might have become larger issue with arguments. These type of roommates are actually nice because if you ask them “didn’t they like about what happened” they would always reply with “that’s fine”. But leave a note for you, but see to it that they don’t control you with sticky notes.
6. The Mr. & Ms. Clean

The freaky roommate who is always obsessed with cleaning. And you’re part of the room is most of the time messed up and their bedroom is all clean by 8 AM and they are early to bed and early to rise people, always organised and clean.
Deal the feel: It would be great if you too are on the cleaner side, and keep the room spic and span, but if you are on the messier side then there would be issues. Always remember don’t mess on their side that may create conflict. The advantage with such type of roomie is that the common areas are also cleaned by them. But don’t make it a habit and take advantage of making them clean the common space always, they may bust out with anger someday.
7. The Food Thief

Most of the time you may find that your roomie doesn’t own anything and is always borrowing if you’re around or else taking your food without your permission. Borrowing clothes from your closet and sometimes just robbing stuff just because they know you’re careless. When Lays, chocos, cookies are all missing then you realise you have not consumed it rather your flatmate has finished them all. “Buy Your Own Food Buddy”.
Deal the feel:You have to confront this to your roomie as it costs you money and is not free. They too can buy for themselves and if they don’t have time tell to buy then let him pay you, and you do the favor for them when you go to buy your own grocery. By this you can save your pocket for time being. And still if this continues keep the food items in your room, locked in a cabinet.
8. The Clingy Roomie

The clingy roommate never makes you feel lonely from your friends and family. She never leaves you apart when you’re in the apartment. And starts with personal talks from the very first day she met you. And sometimes even wants to go out with you, and will self invite themselves.
Deal the feel:They are very good at heart so you have to handle this issue gently so that your roomie is not hurt. They may want to make you their best friend and is scared to be left out in the new environment. So take them out with you if she’s fine with the atmosphere and friends well and good, if not then she will go her way from next time.
9. The Irresponsible Roomie

This roommate of your doesn’t do anything, even doesn’t take care of his own grocery. They are always dependent on you. You always try to support them as they are not cunning very sweet at heart and you recollect those days when you were like them. Only thing you need to be clear about is when it comes to cleaning the house. You can’t do two jobs whereas your roomie chills in the room.
Deal the feel: But such kind of roommates require ultimatum or else one day you would be the one doing everything and would be taken for granted. Like if the rent is not been given on time you have to be clear and tell them “this would be your last month if you don’t pay on time”. Because you receive the half amount late instead of paying the other half you pay the entire amount to the landlord. So you get stretched if you’re a student as you get pocket money from your parents.

There is a fancy dress everyday in your apartment with lot of noise disturbing the surrounding neighbour. Sometimes it happens like if they had a break-up they will cry over it everyday loudly and tell what happened, in spite it was not a serious relation. Then they do drama once night out buddies have come in after drinks and you don’t like all this, fair enough but they shout so loud that you can hear them clearly from your room.
Deal the feel: You have to be straightforward and stubborn in informing that you’ll not be taking these tantrums of loud music and overnight party in-house. You dress up for fun crack jokes is all fine not smoking and drinking inside the apartment. But convey this nicely, they will surely understand. If they still continue to do the same, give them a warning that you’ll convey this to the landlord.
