Sun Sign Survey: What Sign Was Your Weirdest Flatmate?!

The Young Ones at their kitchen table share flat

AM sorting out the archives and this is SO FUN I think I am going to bung it right here, right now – Because not all of us have shared…YET.

YOUR WEIRDEST FLATMATE WAS WHAT SIGN?! Or housemate/roomate, whatever?

I have three contenders for this…And, to be fair, I am sure that i was someone’s weirdest flatmate myself. I think it is always worth acknowledging that point.But these flatmates were all joyously raving astro-cliches…By which i mean SO true to the most trite traits of their Sun Sign that it was  – at best – archetypal.

* Flatmate One:  Female – Sagg.

Alarmingly athletic, leggy, toothy, tanned and super-candid to a point that stunned people. She spent all her spare money on sports equipment that she was totally thrilled about. So my friends and I blew $ we didn’t have on booze, shoes, poetry and perfume – hers went on kayaks, mountain bikes, new running shoes, skis – fresh sports socks if she really broke. Had a banker boyfriend whom, she candidly admitted, was to “facilitate” international snowboarding excursions. Also prone to fleeting but very-intense-whilst-they-lasted-lust-crush-fixations on men whom she would blatantly stalk. Slept nude. Opened door in the nude. Studied in the nude. Rarely drank due to usually having to be up at 4.30 am for some kind of run or kayaking event but when she did get On It, Sagg-Flatmate would quickly go from ‘one glass of wine after tutorial’ to debating law with bouncers trying to eject her for dancing topless on the table.

* Flatmate Two: Male – Aquarius.

Much older bearded Gestalt therapist and frequenter of workshops. Recently divorced and the part-time parent of two daughters, he populated his house with teenage student flatmates a la the incentive: ‘live here, close to uni, I am so cool with you bringing all your fabulous friends around and partying day and night…Truly relaxed living, no hassles etc.’  It did not occur to me until years later that this may have been the source of his frequent day-long domestics with his ex-wife on the verandah. Fave Saying: ‘that’s your shit…’ Morphed between being quite fascinating a la discussing mythology et al to pompous and ostentatious meditating in the middle of the living room with Nag Champa burning and his horrid white belly freaking out his cute-teenage-flatmates + their lovers and then again to cannabis-inspired creepy investigative candour and flaccid passes.

* Flatmate Three – THE WINNER OF MY PERSONAL WEIRD FLATMATE COMP:  Male – Aries...

V.short and muscular. Had huge pile of smut in the living room, not really looked at and just magazines but there to make the point that he could. He constantly denounced feminism, in really bonkers ways. And would get visibly thrilled if you argued with him about it. Like visibly. Beads of sweat on brow, unbuttoning his shirt a bit and let’s open another bottle of wine. Read endless tracts of stuff such as Shere Hite and Germaine Greer to get his “ammo.”  Slept between sheep and goat skins as did not approve of sheets. Had v.expensive stereo etc but always kept doors/windows unlocked because – he said – his karma was so fantastic. Could not go three sentences in any conversation without doing pull-ups on the nearest door frame. Opinionated to the point that he was constantly getting into fights with people, which he enjoyed. Aries Flatmate had no formal martial arts training but genuinely loved fighting, especially if he could keep mouthing off whilst doing it. Blamed his frequent turnover of woman friends on Feminism.

I had this flatmate, Leo Sun, Libra Asc. She was this wierd agressive punk girl untill she started to live with. After awhile, she started to do all the stuff I did (meditation, music, vegetarianism etc. Oh and she took my boyfriend to movies while I was away for one weekend. Lovely, don’t ya think.) We became wierdly close but I realized there’s just something bizzare and I grew apart. Once we had this fight when I told her all the sh**. After two weeks she spoke with my boss (we worked together, sigh!) and got me fired up& then… Read more »

I have many different experiences with flatmates but the ones that have particularly stuck out in my mind as being hard to live with are Virgos and Scorpios. Virgos are super critical and obsessively orderly. I also think they’re pretty oldfashioned and always think they know everything and that they know best. And on the whole are pretty annoying to live with! On the plus side they have quite a good sense of humour but a cutting tongue! The two virgos I have lived with have both ended in almost physically coming to blows!? This has never happened with any… Read more »

Virgo (Multiple Libra) Tap Dancing Secretary: Only ate white food and wore purple or blue. Very rarely cut her long hair, so looked like a pretty Cousin It. Actually most of them were really nice! Even the weird ones..except the Northern Irish guy who I thought might kill me. One night he just went beserk at me, so I moved out really quick and ended up living with a friend and 6 Albanian guys. They let me live with them (in London) rent free which was incredibly sweet though they didn’t pay the rent anyway. They had jumped the border… Read more »

Shared with a Piscean woman, she never paid the rent & skipped on my sister & I. There would be a loooong line of men in her room through the weekend and half the week, her bed was riddled with pubic lice, nice.

virgo housemate – she worked her way through a recipe journal of carefully written-out blue biro recipes, singing la-la-la in the most forced way that makes me still occasionally check myself when I begin singing in the shower – as in, am I for real?! Virgo housemate was absolutely convinced i and our other housemate was sleeping with her boyfriend. I stood in front of both him and her and finally, exasperated, announced there was nothing remotely attractive to me about her doormat ahem boyfriend, to which he nodded gravely in agreement, but of course this added to the paranoia.… Read more »

Wow your experience with a virgo flatmate sounds Extremely similar to one I had with one.
She was completely nuts about just about anything being out of place in her ordered house, had extremely crazy moods where she stormed round the house accusing everyone of all sorts of things. She was hugely critical and I did exactly what you did and moved out as soon as possible, even though I loved the house, just couldn’t live with such a nightmare.

High school: Spanish class summer trip to Mexico for 6 long weeks. I was 17 yrs. old, cheerleader, party girl, loud, boy crazy, and out-of-control. My Spanish teacher paired me with this boring, religious Mormon girl, who was a quie do-gooder. He candidly told me that he paired us because he thought I needed a positive influence. We had been in Spanish classes for the last 4 years and I thought my life was over. I even packed some of my mother’s sleeping pills to slip her so I could sneak off at night.

Some diabolical house-mates you’ve flatted with out there everyone! Thanks for the hilarious stories. I do not like visiting memory lane very much but I recall astro for 2 former housemates: * Leo male, with Virgo rising for sure. Very preoccupied with his looks & his own reflection. Covered a whole wall of his room with alfoil (shiny, right?). Always strutted about in his rugby shorts with no shirt, even in winter. Had a real “washing machine” walk. Used to mix up the most bizarre food in the blender – obsessed with nutrition but not with cleaning up, sadly. Used… Read more »

Oh, these are golden. Weirdest/most annoying was this mentally disturbed Virgo man who had every food allergy known to man, and ate the weirdest cereal mush every morning for breakfast. He would complain about the pettiest shit, like the fact that my soapdish always had “scummy soap water” in the bottom of it, and would rearrange our furniture without asking. Which wasn’t tolerated. He was incredibly anal about everything and also suffered from insomnia….I was frequently creeped out by hearing him shuffle down the hallway in the wee hours of the night in his slippers, like a mental patient.

I lived with my craziest roomie for one summer sublease 14 years ago. He was another Kataka and his birthday was the day before mine. He was an ex-Army prep cook with dreadlocks who was heavily into voodoo (as a religion). He had three different jobs to make enough money to travel to Haiti as often as possible. He had several different snakes and kept mice to feed them. When one snake died, he popped it into the freezer where I discovered it when pulling out a pizza! He also dated and dumped a good Aquarian friend of mine and… Read more »

A Scorpio wannabe satanist fellow soldier I bunked with played Hawkwind over and over and always dressed head to toe in black when not in uniform yet hardly left the room just sat and stared into space. I didn’t mind him at all and thought he was quite harmless.
I smuggled my girlfriend and her friend in one night as I was confined to camp and the friend awoke at 4am with him standing over her making hand gestures. I recently got in touch with them through facebook after 20 years and thats the first thing they mentioned!

And all the scorps I know never grizzle. they either do stuff or they don’t. the problems only arise when wierd interpersonal shite that directly involves oneself starts to happen, which is obviously not with all scorps. I think the situation with my flatmate was also more related to age and insecurity (we were, like, 20) than much else, but as… Read more »

My best housemate ever is a Scorp. Maybe because we both kinda wanted to live on our own there was synchronicity / compatibility. Brilliantly, we recently landed her the apartment downstairs from me, so we are ‘sharing’ again but with complete autonomy.

NUMBER ONE wierd flattie was the scorpio Frenemy, who i know refused to acknowledge boundaries (other people’s, aka mine: hers were airtight, talk about double standards?) and take/use/steal my stuff. Mainly clothes. And copy things i wore/said, enough for me to think it was really not right and not just a once in a blue moon. Other times, it was fine..enough to lull me into a false sense of security. Other flatmate – aries pot-head, army type – failing his degree, pot dealer on speed-dial,… Read more »

Had a Scorpio sun/rising flatmate who cunningly drove all my friends away while making me believe it was okay because I had her in my life, all the while having a secret affair with my best male friend (who was also a Scorp) and then running off with him as if I’d never existed.

Glad to say I’m a lot wiser these days. And I still love Scorps, just not those two!

I’m Taurus/Horse. Actually find your flatmate eerily similar to me. 🙁

It’s true about not letting go without making a big deal/scene. The only way to let people go is if it’s done little by little, losing touch very slowly and kind of nautrally. It’s how I end friendships, write less and less letters. (Yeah, letters. Finally stopped that about seven years ago.)

Most of my relationships have been a 3 weeks max as well, with only two serious. The first killed himself. Yeah, unlucky in love.

Parents were famous artists in France (no, really. we looked this shit up on the internets) yet it seemed he had been cut off and living in California for a long time. Would pass out while standing up, sit in front of the TV for hours sometimes yelling shit at it or laughing hysterically. Walked around the house naked during a massive house party just to piss the other roommates off.

As Ms says – so demented you have to giggle. We must laugh at these things in retrospect, yes… And maybe easier ‘cos his shites did, in the end, catch up with him. Poor sorrowful crack-pot that he is.

Cancer flatmate older and perpetual uni student, looked like Jesus, slept on the floor, extreme vegan who would wash everything he owned at once, then sat naked on back porch till clothes dried said it was part of ‘life’s process’. If asked to do anything or any question would cock his head like a bird and say “I don’t know, I will have to think about that”. Once left a pair of jeans on the clothes line as a spider had built a web on them. Had been saving his own hair for years and it was a huge ball… Read more »

I am feeling too positive today complain today! So I will say that my BEST flatmate ever is a male Bull and I am Libran. We live in the house that Venus built! Huge comfy couches, soft muted colours, fresh flowers, mohair rugs, expensive candles, art deco mirrors and we entertain at least once a fornight. Only weird thing is that neither of us seem to eat. The kitchen is the least used room of our house and the contents of our fridge is: one bottle of champagne, six pack of beer, wheel of brie and two limes that have… Read more »

Love it.

My weirdest flatmate – Scorpio, in news quite a bit now. For sex scandal. Beautiful. Took three hour baths with powdered seaweed she ordered from france. Left ring of green slime around the bathrub and lipstick stained cigarette butts in sea shell she used as ashtray and sopping wet towels everywhere.

Was completely disinterested in food, ate only fruit and nuts

Lol my flatmates a cancer? well im considering moving out im looking through sites about physco flatmates and im feeling alot better but also wondering how nuts i must seem. One of my current flatmates is tottaly nuts and devoid of social understanding. I moved into a random flat with 4 guys that know eachother. He loves annoucing when hes gonna shag his misses. He spends his nights when hes not with her farting in the lounge in his flatmates faces. he doesnt with me cause id smash him. he has in the past become very excited and called me… Read more »

I want to know how to get rid of a 40+ yo Cancerian male. He’s really hard to get along with, even his fellow cancerian male flatmate has difficulty with him! Its really funny watching those two argue because a) they’re both right, and b) the other is always wrong. The 40+ yo even admits he has difficulty keeping girlfriends and has problem with women in general (but he’s not gay!). He’s practically impossible to live with because he flies off the handle if we comment about how we need fresh air in the house, or how we’d like the… Read more »

Holy crap! Your Crabby flatmate sounds like the one i just got rid of. He was one of the worst. In addition to what you mentioned about not being gay but having nothing but horrid drama with the ladies…like restraining order being issued and shit… He was OCD about cleanliness and was alcoholic. I think he finally left because he managed to drink every bit of liquor I had acquired over the years. It often takes me like 5-10 years to finish something like a bottle of barenjager or scotch or rum. I had a huge stash but I’m actually… Read more »

I think it may be a reflection of age rather than star sign. Being 40+ myself I understand that I have become quite set and odd in my ways and I have to choose flatmates very very carefully because I don’t want to inflict psychological torture on someone who won’t be able to handle it. My tolerance for things ‘out of place’, which of course is a state that only I am capable of defining when in my home, is near zero. I love having visitors, but I fear I have outgrown the whole flatmate thing. I may be wrong,… Read more »

Scorpio, by far. She drank a box – yes, a box – of wine every night. After the wine, proceeded to tell me what losers men were and basically repeated the exact same 2 hour tirade every night. Called herself a loser the entire next day if I beat her at scrabble (which wasn’t hard to do), so I had to let her win, and she wanted to play EVERY night. Coughed up “things” onto the carpet and left them there. Lovely girl.

I had an exact same male older Aqua flat mate, his name was Nick, or more commonly known as Nick the D***. Had been to every South American country and bought the coffee table, hammock or other trophy to prove it. He used to spike his hair and wear a UV studded choker when he went to his once a year rave party on NYE. Never left his bedroom, always looking at the stock market on his computer, found naked photos of him in my room, skinny with white paunch. Yuk. I also loved the bit about the Aries sleeping… Read more »

Scorpio Chick, hand model

Preceding her studio gigs as hand-model, she’d slather on hand cream until every door knob in the house would be covered. It’s not easy opening wonky old doors when knobs are greasy.
Also prevented her from washing-up, naturally.

CC…that is HILARIOUS about the Libran alcoholic!! Wierdest flatmate…Gemini. King of theatre/foyer small talk. Truly brilliant at it. Often found making cups of tea in jocks in the morning, not the greatest bod, big paunch and wore thick silver chain around his neck. Loved smoking pot. Would get excited at the thought of it. Extremely camp but had gf, now wife with a baby, who was always sick and spent hours in the bathroom in the mornings. Kept massive gay porn collection in boot of his car. Having said that, he was a lovely man.

I loved the bit about the Aries guy sleeping between sheep and goat skins!

That appeals to my Ariesness very much, though it is a little bit yuck as well, and thoroughly impractical for Queensland weather.

This guy wasn’t really my flatmate as such but read on and you’ll see.. He was a Scorp, tiny, wiry and italian.. Greesy as all hell, used to use sorblene cream as hair gel? Now he wasn’t really my flat-mate he lived in the unit next door and for a little while was under the impression that he WAS a flatmate. He was kooky, I don’t know much about… Read more »

Yeah I think there is definately Leo in there. Once while word vomiting as he so often did I think he was talking about how attractive he was. And I said something sarcastic.. and he was shocked. “What you don’t think I’m attractive??!” He actually teared up when I said I didnt. Haha he wasn’t all bad though. Just really confused I think.

Saggitarian PR Diva. Had an amazing collection of designer duds, which would all go through the washing machine and then hang like a chinese laundey all around the house/patio. For days. If not weeks. Thats if the clothes made it out of the machine in the first place….. not uncommen to open the machine lid and be king hit by the smell of clothes left damp too long in small enclosed space….. Clean clothes would then lurk on the floor of her room, intermingling with her dirty stuff, and she would randomly shove her hand in the pile, drag something… Read more »
