Redditor u/SlapChopTheGreat told his roommate that Liz’s refusal to meet him made him “uncomfortable,” but his roommate defended Liz.
“She doesn’t have to meet you if she doesn’t want to [to],” he said.
When interacting with a partner’s roommate, life coach Nina Rubin said people should remain “polite and cordial” even when there’s tension.
“Perhaps your partner and roommate are very close. Or maybe your partner doesn’t care about them either, but it’s a workable situation for them,” Rubin told Elite Daily. “It is best to be polite and cordial. If you sleep often, make sure to tidy up your clutter and tidy up the spaces that you all use.”
Pricilla Martinez, a life coach, also advised people to “rotate their whereabouts” to “avoid too many consecutive nights in one place” and invite their partner’s roommate to hang out in the common areas so they “don’t feel so im feel exile”. from their habitat.”
“Even if you are your partner’s guest while you are in their house, you need to remember what their roommate deserves [to feel] also feel comfortable in the room,” said Elite Daily.
Many editors called Liz “rude” and argued that if she doesn’t want to speak to u/SlapChopTheGreat, she and her boyfriend should spend more time with her.

“Maybe your roommate should hang [out] then with his girlfriend. Not cool to be made a misfit in your own home,” commented u/Bid-Routine.

Redditor u/Justin002865 added: “Your place. Do what you want. She can walk.”
