At first, I ignored my crush on my roommate — but of course, trying not to like someone almost always has the opposite effect.
It was the early days of the pandemic and I had just moved from Tucson to Costa Mesa for a new job. But I soon found a room for rent in a big house with four people who were all very welcoming to me and my dog — particularly the roommate I would be sharing a bathroom with. Affairs: L. Thanks to therapy, to the pandemic, to stillness, to time and unbearable loneliness, I am looking back on all the people that have entered my life over the years as gifts.

I started to crush. Maybe this was meant to happen? Orange County, the hiking gem you need to know. Here are the 12 best trails. So, I dived in. We both said we wanted something serious, not just a roommate-with-benefits situation.

When she was staying over, I tried to be chill about it — but that was almost impossible.
She was loud and obnoxious, both in everyday conversation and during sex. I could hear her ridiculous moaning from the bathroom between our two bedrooms. The worst was when he was back in the office and I was working from home while she was staying over. Her constant presence was irritating.

During one extended stay, I asked him when she was leaving. So I flipped out. As it did for many people, brought out behavior and emotions far outside my usual repertoire: I yelled at him, cried, threatened to tell her about us I doubt she ever knew and trashed my room in a fit of rage.
