    There are 5 people total in this house. The new guy just moved in, we are all 22-23, he is at least 45, has kids our age in college. Our rent is REAL cheap (like 400 a month), which is why he chose to stay with us I suppose. Just drove here in 3-4 days (iirc) from San Francisco (~43 hours). He is here on contract for 6 months with Rockwell Collins as a physicists. Wouldn't you all find that a bit weird having a roommate old enough to be your father?

    I hate to admit the fact that I live with 2 other women who are old enough to be my mom.

    But whatever. I'm making it through college and that's what matters to me.

    That'd be really awkward.

    I don't see it as being too bad.

    I can't really speak from experience. Though I did live in a basement apartment and the house was owned by a single 50 year old woman. Wasn't that bad.

    Either "he's not doing something right".....or he's into saving alot of cash for the period that he's in the area on contract. If he's a physisist with Rockwell Collins, he's got something going for him and has achieved some form of education and dicipline. Unless, of course, he's a functioning alcoholic. In which case, run, don't walk away!

    He's gonna want to relive his youth so it should end up being like Old School.

    old people have such great stories though. i mean, think about the best stories that you and your buddies have. this guy has had almost double the years to rack up good times. he's a veteran, make him feel welcome.

    also, you shouldn't have to worry about a 40 year old do messing up your game when you bring a laaaaady home. the best roommates are ones with girlfriends, gay, or old in this case.

    You will learn from him, but for me the burning question is why he would want to room with guys 20 years his younger. Hell, I'm 33 and would be willing to pay twice as much to be alone or with one or two of my peers. Even that would probably not suit me. I'm a bit of a lone wolf, and can only think of 2-3 of my friends with whom I could co-habitate nicely.

    I live with two 22 year olds. I'd gladly trade them for one sane 45 year old.

    Pst!

    You'd better watch out....us fourty-somethings are ripe with the farts. And now this one knows the secrets to the pink eye! [/evil thoughts]
    We're not called "old farts" for nothing.:)
