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 prefer to get up early and want to share with other morning people. I don’t smoke, but I don’t mind smoking or non-smoking accommodation. My roommate's food preferences don't matter, too, if she won’t try to change mine. The most important thing for me is a sensible measure of communication, the opportunity to relax in silence, so the ideal roommate is a friendly introvert, who respects the personal space of the neighbor.

Since I will not describe myself as a talkative person, I will say prefer to share the room with a quiet roomate. Additionally, I wake up early every day an exercise after have eaten a healthy breakfast. Therefore, it would be better to share the room with someone with the same routines and way of living. Finally, I do not smoke hence to share the room with a non-smoker is a must.

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.
