My dd's roommate never did friend her on facebook before school started. My dd friend requested her like most kids do now. We knew that was a red flag.
Well we were all right on the money. She is awkward, doesn't talk much except to her boyfriend who is one floor above. Blamed my dd for her not having friends or being social to the RA. What the hell. My dd is not her social supervisor? They agreed no overnight boyfriend guests unless agreed upon. Of course her boyfriend spent the night numerous times without her asking my dd so my dd went to the RA about it. She still does it but not as much. She was mad my dd took her mattress and had a "slumber party" in someone elses room. Also one night when the roommates boyfriend was staying over some of her friends suggested she sleep in their room so she took her mattress in there. DD tries. My dd really tries to get along with everyone. She was the one who would get the friendliest student award or nicest student many times at school. The girl just wants to be with her boyfriend and no one else. The RA suggested she invite her to some things so even though it isn't my dd's responsiblity she said she would but 99% of the time she is with her boyfriend so dd can't do it or she isn't in the room. My dd said they are having more normal conversations lately but my dd (who is shy too) has to initiate every conversation. DD says 1/2 their floor doesn't know her roommates name even. They just say "oh you have the roommate with the boyfriend that doesn't speak to anyone" and dd says Yep, That's me. Oh, and the roommate and her boyfriend bicker and fight all the time too which annoys my dd. You know, take it elsewhere. My dd still tolerates it and doesn't complain except to us. Thank goodness this girl isn't roommates with my oldest because she doesn't put up with crap. She is lucky she has my nice tolerate dd to room with.
My dd just wishes things were not so awkward and until this girl lightens up some, quits having her boyfriend sleep over, and starts talking some, things will continue.
