I played football for my sixth-form school and I am hoping to join a university team. I'm a morning person and I get up early to train and go to the gym. So I would prefer to share with other people who don't like late nights either! Also I am vegetarian and, if possible, I would prefer to share a kitchen with other non-meat eaters.


  1. If the form is on paper, write clearly. Use capital letters if your handwriting isn't clear.
  2. If there is not much space to write, make a list instead of writing full sentences.
  3. Check it. It's easy to make small mistakes!

I like talkative friends sometimes. I am lazy without talkative friends. We all together eat and speak and do our homework. And I like the one who reads books a lot and sings music. We share our knowledge and sing together. And I am a night person and night owl. So I wanna be my flatmate a night person.

I don't like to share with other. I want to be peaceful. Some of my friends are very inquisitive and very talkative. I cannot bear it. I want to be free. I like private. I like reading silently.

I would like to share having good mind and funny person.I always used to listen and sing the music loudly .So I want like me to have same hobby.

I would prefer to share with other people who don't like late nights and share a kitchen with non meat eaters, if possible share a bathroom with one person .

I would like to share the room with clean, healthy and not lazy. Always help me clean the bathroom after shower put the town on hang rack nicely.

I would like to share a flat with someone who loves peace and silent. I don't like a talkative person so I would prefer to share with the one who respect the other person's privacy.

I get tired of people quickly, so I don’t wanna share room with someone. Home for me a place where I can relax. But if it’s necessary I would prefer to share room with quiet, clean girl :)

I want to share my apartment with someone who is a greedy reader and has a sense of humour.I could put up with a talkative person but a smoking one.

I am not a talkative person also not so good at communicate with others so I prefer to share a room with someone that'll respect other's personal space but with a reasonable idea of it, not too much

someone who like watching movies and anime . both of us need to clean every day we don't want our room to be dirty . someone who is not very smart to teach each other or she/he will be very smart so they can teach me i don't like waking up very early . also they read novels or something also non-smoker
