Ask Amy: Roommate drama presents housing dilemma

By Amy Dickinson, Tribune Content Agency on

Dear Amy: I'm dealing with a tough situation with my new roommate (I did not know her prior to her moving in).

She moved into the apartment in September and has been sleeping with a guy who is engaged since then.

Her boyfriend lives with his fiancée but sleeps over twice a week at our place.

He has lied multiple times about the direction his relationship with his fiancée is going, and he finds us while we are out and trying to have a good time. My roommate has no control over the situation.

It's gotten to the point where, as a protective roommate, I have yelled across the table at him.

I feel I don't ever get a break from the situation. He isn't a nice person. He's controlling, rude, and a liar.


Is it wrong for me to be upset about this? Is it wrong for me to not want him in our apartment?

I have tried staying out of her situation, but she drags me back into it.

I tell her I'm sick of it and don't want to talk about him and she still brings it up!
