Thank you very very much for sharing your Russ experience.It's been a while and I mostly just remember knowing pretty quickly it wasnt a good fit but going through the motions. To be fair the bedroom was situated in a way that when you open the door the closet is behind it but he definitely didnt walk all the way in. I do remember he was pretty particular about wanting something with a lease, I think even in the CL post he mentioned it, and complained about having been forced out of other places earlier than he wanted to be. He also stood way closer to me than I was comfortable with. I also thought his over-justification before meeting, like sending his LinkedIn before scouting the place out was odd. Otherwise nothing was THAT weird about the visit itself but I have a good hunch for people and something about the whole thing felt very off.
I always love it when we get visitors/lurkers who come and share their stories with with us Kiwis. It never fails to disappoint.
Good on you for seeing him for the crazy ass that he is, and I'm glad he didnt move in with you and your other female roomates. That said, there is a small, dark part of me that would have love to see the spergouts that this absolutely would have caused.
If you don't mind me asking, how did you find this thread and what did you think when you found it?
