If you like things tidy, living with other people is hard. You have to maneuver through their dirty clothes, go on a scavenger hunt every time you need a clean plate, and work part-time as a garbage collector. But if you're unlucky enough, you might move in with an individual that's impossible to live with. No matter if you're high-maintenance or chill as a goldfish. The Internet calls these creatures 'monsters'. And rightfully so. Who else could keep a potato in their cupboard so long that it starts sprouting? Or leave so much hair on the wall of a shower that you could make a wig out of it? Bored Panda has compiled a list of pictures that show what it's like to live with a monster so scroll down, check out their insane living habits, and upvote your (least) favorite ones!

While cheesy sitcoms may have convinced you that living with roommates is the best, truth is, there's much more to it. When you are sharing your space with someone else, everyday life is full of conflicts, compromises, and setting boundaries. There are, however, things you can do to make it easier for everyone involved.

Clear Communication from the get-go. Even though this is one of the most important tips for any relationship, it's vital for all roommates. You'll be spending a lot of time with each other, and you'll need to respect each other's needs and preferences. Ask yourself what you know about yourself already and what you expect from the person that's living with you. Maybe you like to blast music while you study, maybe you need some peace and quiet before you go to sleep, it doesn't matter, just figure it out and communicate these needs and expectations as soon as possible.

Solve problems immediately. The best way to go about it is to tackle them while they're still small. Is your roommate borrowing your stuff without asking? Or maybe they're constantly leaving a mess behind them? Address issues as soon as you notice them and it will be easier to talk about them in a calm and friendly manner.

Be respectful when you're thinking about inviting people over. Even if you're an extroverted socialite who thrives among other people, your roommate prefers spending time alone. Bringing a group of friends to your home may be disrupting, considering it's their home as well. Talk to your roommate again, inform them about your socialization needs and make sure you don't overstep any boundaries.

It's okay if you and your roommate aren't best friends. Try to be pleasant and friendly to your roommate, but respect each other's personal space. There's no need to force a close relationship, doing so might cause strain and discomfort for the both of you. Go on with your life and if you connect, you connect, and if you don't, at least you get along.

I used to have a roommate like this. Every damn night I would clean the kitchen spotless and he and his friends would come in drunk and make messy food late at night and leave the mess!! So, I finally decided to take all of the dirty dishes and put them in his bed in the morning after he left and would remake his bed like nothing happened. A few times of this and he finally stopped! We still laugh about it now haha
