It feels good to say that sometimes, don’t you think?
And that’s what went down when a young woman decided to ban her roommate’s girlfriend from their apartment for some inappropriate behavior.
Let’s take a look at what happened.
AITA for banning my roommate’s girlfriend after she kept insisting I was hitting on her?
“I (24F) am a lesbian living with my good friend (25M). I own the apartment; I’m renting out the extra room to him.
A little over a month ago, he met a girl online, and they started dating. She is now at our place constantly. I’ll be honest, I’ve never really liked her. She was incredibly standoffish and rude to me from the beginning. I eventually learned it was because she thought I had a thing for my roommate. Even after he told her I was gay, apparently her only argument was, “she doesn’t look gay.”
A few weeks ago, we were all drinking and hanging out at our place with a few close friends. I tried to mend fences by pulling the GF aside and telling her that I really am gay, I have no interest in stealing her boyfriend, and I hope we can be friends.
She seemed to take this very well, and was OVERLY friendly with me the whole rest of the night. I thought she was just trying to make up for being so cruel at first.
The next day, my roommate asked if we could talk. He said his GF feels uncomfortable around me after I “drunkenly hit on her.” Wuuut. I was not even remotely close to being drunk. Also, I am negatively attracted to her. Like, way less than zero. I find her insanely annoying.
I tried to explain that I was trying to be nice, as I knew she didn’t particularly like me. I wanted to be civil if she was going to be around often. My roommate seemed skeptical, but he ultimately took my word for it and chalked it up to a miscommunication.
Fast forward a week or so, the friend group is hanging out at our place again. The GF comes over, of course. I’m cordial to her, but I try to keep my distance so another “miscommunication” doesn’t happen.
Towards the end of the night, one of our other friends comes up to me like, “Dude, what is going on? GF keeps telling everyone you’ve been checking her out and hitting on her all night?”
Again, I was stunned. And at this point, incredibly pissed off. I went right up to the GF in front of everyone, and said, “What the hell’s going on? Why are you spewing lies about me hitting on you to all my friends?”
She just stared at me, unable to respond. I continued, “Just because I’m gay does not mean I’m into you. Trust me, I am not the LEAST bit interested in you.”
She started sobbing that I was attacking her for no reason, calling her out, making her super uncomfortable again, etc. I told her to get the hell out, and that she was no longer welcome here for making ME feel uncomfortable in my own apartment. Her and my roommate left.
Needless to say, my roommate is super pissed at me. He hasn’t been back to our place since, but I’ve gotten some angry texts. I’m standing my ground that she is not welcome here anymore, but he is free to stay or move out as he pleases.
Most of our friends are on my side. I guess I could’ve been easier on her, but I am just so over it.”
Here’s how folks on Reddit responded to the woman’s story.
This person doesn’t think the woman was wrong for her actions at all…and they think the roommate’s girlfriend is all about the drama.
Another reader argued that the roommate’s girlfriend probably has a few screws loose…I think I agree with this one.
This reader agreed that this woman is definitely not wrong about her actions and that she actually handled it the best way she could.
This person pointed out the obvious: the roommate’s girlfriend is straight-up JEALOUS.
Finally, another Reddit user said that the roommate’s girlfriend got exactly what she deserved. And they said she is toxic and manipulative.
