22 Moments All Female Flatmates Go Through Whilst Living Together
Boys don’t know what they’re missing out on.
1. The obligatory Insta stalk post move-in.
After all, you’re gonna have to know about any ex-boyfriends that you’re obviously going to have to HATE and most importantly any items of clothing that you’ll be borrowing in the coming year.
2. The moment when your wardrobes automatically become each other’s.
Can’t find anything to wear? No worries I’ll just go to my other wardrobes to find something!
3. And when you discover the hairdresser of the group.
Do NOT admit to being good at doing hair unless you want to deal with the consequences for the rest of the year. But low-key you don’t mind.
4. This also applies to any low-key MUAs in the flat.
Fleeky eyebrows, contouring/highlighting, a smokey eye blended to the high heavens? You’ll be on it.
5. Spot popping will also become a regular occurrence.
Ffs I just came in to ask for a stapler.
6. And hair removal – upper lip waxing, bikini line, armpits, eyebrows? You name it, you’ll see it all.
You’ll walk around the flat afterwards like silky smooth dolphins.
7. This also means that you’ll see each other in your underwear far more than you ever thought you would.
Someone will always need their back fake tanning; embrace the nakedness.
8. And you’ll definitely lend out your underwear to your fellow gals more than you expected.
Because one of your flatmates cba to do a sink wash of their underwear before they go home for the weekend.
9. When the friendship reaches that level, you all make a girls only flat group chat.
You need somewhere to talk about your male flatmates and most importantly their fit friends from home when they come to visit!
10. Which includes helping plan text replies to various love interests.
He thinks he’s just talking to one girl. No no no, there are multiple geniuses behind these messages.
11. Speaking of which, you’ll come to know every single detail of any new love interests.
The look he gave your flatmate in a lecture, the chat they had on the bus and most importantly – the next time that they’re both going on the same night out. EXCITEMENT!
12. Obviously, you end up being top wingwomen and are there virtually for the whole ride.
At pres, you strategically find ways to get them as close as physically possible to each other whilst rigging all of the drinking games in the hope that love blossoms.
13. But you’re also there to protect your gals from, ahem, unconventional relationships.
There’s a whole list of boys that your flatmate has made you promise to save her from on night out if they attempt to make a move on her.
14. And you’re there for each other on social media.
If you don’t like every single insta, are you even flatmates??
15. And you’re there to help the squad out with the selfie game.
You’ve already seen the newest selfie long before it’s uploaded.
16. Somehow your ‘times of the month’ all end up being in sync??
17. This usually means that passive aggressiveness is at an all time high at that point in the month.
You definitely owe me for the food shop last week but no worries. Seriously.
18. Which gives even more excuses for movie nights.
You pitch the plan in the girl group chat, go to shop to get a bottle of wine and snacks, drag your duvets and pillows in and put on rom-com after rom-com.
19. When your flatmates cry, you cry!
Whether they’re crying over their recent beak up, the fact that they’re never going to finish their essay before the deadline or they’re just feeling homesick, you adopt maternal instincts far earlier than you ever expected as you sit there hugging them on your bed.
20. And when one of you goes home for the weekend, it feels like you’ve lost an arm.
You see Snapchats of them with their friends back home and you can’t help but feel a sting of jealousy.
21. But then when they come back, it’s like they were never gone.
It doesn’t matter that you’ve just been to pick them up from the train station at 11pm, they’ve got fresh gossip from back home and if it takes 3 hours to tell it all, then hello 2am!
22. But when you all actually do go home for the summer, you realise that you’ve made friends for life.
And all you can think about it getting straight back to uni to do it all again.
