My new roommate and I both want the same bedroom, how to deal with this?
I am moving off-campus and into a house with two of my teammates and their friend. I am a 20 year old woman, and he is a slightly older guy. There are two rooms across the hall from each other. When I toured the house, the owner showed me a room in the front that "would most likely be" mine and I fell in love with it. It gets a ton of natural light, has a little alcove for my television and loveseat, and I really had my heart set on the room. Only later did I find out this additional roommate also really likes the room, as opposed to a larger, but darker and more plain room in the back. I can understand why he likes it, but we need to reach some kind of compromise here. I sent him a nice Facebook message telling him I really like the other room, but am not super picky. He replied that he really likes it too, but is also not super picky. What are we going to do? Someone needs to be the bigger person and give up the room. I really want it, but I don't want to be That Girl who whines about not getting the room I like.
