talking with a friend last night and she was saying exactly the same thing. Whereas in reality it's never personal, just some buy-to-let bellend with more cash than her.
I can afford to buy a house thread.
by house-hunting i mean house-share-hunting, or room-hunting.
Then do take the rejections personally. On what other criteria would they judge it?
Everyone else going for the room clearly out shone you. You know, not in the literal sense, only in the sense of your personality and fundamentally who you are as a person. Also possibly on your looks.
Hope this clears things up.
You only need to get one good place, it's always difficult to sense or measure any sort of progress in househunting until you find 'the one', and then it all suddenly moves very quickly.
either it's personal or your money situation looks dodge as fuck
not even a "fuck off"
and got rejected. Some I understood and didn't want to live in that particular den of cunts anyway. But also I got rejected when I thought things were all hunky dory and it was a shoe-in.
So SCREWWWWWWWWWWWW THEM.
because he didn't want to be uncomfortable in his house.
Maybe you're TOO sexy.
they favoured all the women they found hot. made me then question their motivations for picking me in the first place :(
guys I've got something to tell you...
It will be nothing to do with your personality. Probably just to do with how you look. Like you have paedo eyes...or a paedo smile, or paedo hands, or paedo hair
We put a lot of time and thought into all of the stuff the asked for and emailed it off with a read receipt. Estate agent told us we were outbid.
Eighteen months later I got an alert on Outlook saying my email had been deleted without being read…
there's probably some other person they've considered who has offered some crazy compelling reason to choose them like they luuuurve cleaning, was narrowly considered for the Great British Bake Off and so will make cakes every 5 minutes, have a Playstation 4 etc.
Through a mate I've seen some of them house-share applications and there are some impressive claims as to what the people can bring to the house. Perhaps refine your own selling points over others?
so far the best i've offered is 'i'm a quiet housemate' or 'i don't use much heating'. might have to step things up.
You've come up with some reasons why you won't give your fellow housemates any grief or problems. You'd think that would be enough in any houseshare that have had a nightmare of a housemate (surely, haven't they all?) Is there anything you could contribute to a house that would make you an attractive housemate?
houseshare 'applications' (so to speak) aren't really the done thing (unless they specify it in the ad, you just assume you turn up casually and not act like a weirdo). and i've this idea that going on about what you'd be like as a housemate would come across as a bit desperate. also i'm a bit quiet and don't want to be promising to contribute anything in particular (apart from not being a dick)
- How are you dressed / personal appearance when you go and visit? You need to communicate through clothes, hair that you've got money to pay bills and through personal hygiene that you're a clean person totally into cleaning the house like.
- You can communicate how'd you be a great housemate without doing a desperate selling pitch. Choose comments to get across your strong points. Like: Are the bills monthly cos I've got a massive cheque coming in every 20th? I used to be in a band that lived round here but haven't seen them in a while. I'm not in much, last housemates used to call me the cash cow. I dunno know. Best I've got.
Third idea: not sure where you're looking or amounts of money. Change the area.
Just that think about the good points you can contribute to the place like guaranteed bill paying, will hold your own cleaning the place, will fit in with everyone else by not having arguments etc. Anything else you can think you can bring. The important things in sharing rather than the superficial.
luckily i haven't been in that boat for a while.
