Shortly after moving out of my parents house I had roomates. I liked them, but somewhere in the past 10 yrs I have grown to despise them. I feel bad because I have had many and I still feel the same about them all. I feel like that I like them as friends but not as roomates. I am stating to think it is not all their fault though. I feel like there is a common demoninator in this all and it is me. Does everyone grow to hate all ther roomates or am I just a bad person. I know that sometimes are worse than others so I purposly avoid them. I am not a violent person by any means, but sometimes it is scary to know how close they ar to getting their face punced in. What is even worse is that i can't afford to live on my own a=but I can't hardly take it anymore. The level of annoyance that I feel is more than I have ever had to deal with

If you feel that annoyed and aggravated by them maybe its time to downsize apartments/costs and go without a roommate for a while (OR find a roommate who's rarely home). I know i had a roommate at one point and I'd never do it again. BUT I'd also recommend never living with a sibling it can destroy a relationship between siblings. Living with my sister was fine to begin with...but it drove me nuts when her boyfriend was practically living with us and leaving the house a total mess.

Well that sounds great and all about the down sizing costs and apartment but I live in a town populated prodomitely by college students. Rent is out rageous. It is unrealistic to think I could afford an apartment byself here. Over half of the population comes from the universtiy alone so during the summer months this town makes no money.

One thing that I have found that helps me with irritation of others is to focus on the positives about them. If you look at the negatives, there are always many of them. This can cause your irritation to grow. You will also become annoyed a lot faster. Start looking at the positive of the people and this will help you to relax and you won't feel so much anger.
