What To Do When Your Roommate Skypes Her GF All Night [Ask Tuffy Luv]

Dear Tuffy Luv,

My roommate’s LDR is driving me crazy. She’s obsessed with her girlfriend which I get — I love my girlfriend too. But all this girl does is talk on Skype all night. We’re in college and we are right next to each other in the same room. I need to sleep too! I left her a note a few days ago and she took it completely the wrong way. Now she’s really mad at me. And plus we have a lot of the same friends and they’re all mad at me too. My girlfriend says I’m right but all our other friends say I should cut her some slack. What do you think?

Thanks, Tuffy!

Dear Pissed Roomie,

I’d be totally pissed too, THAT’S what I think. Listen. She can’t expect you to stay up all night just because she does. Girl has got to take it outside into the hallway. Why can’t she take her computer into another room or the hallway or outside?! Unless she’s paying your rent, there is NO reason you’re not entitled to a good night’s sleep on her account.

You can totally get through this. And BTW, your mutual friends need to butt the floop out. I know they mean well, but they should SO not be taking sides. Kudos to your girlfriend for staying cool.

Talk to your roommate in person. Apologize for leaving a note (yeah, that wasn’t that cool either). Then tell her you totally get that she misses her girlfriend but you need your zzzzzs. Together, make a schedule that works for both of you. And get some sleep. Geez.

Hearts & Skulls,
Tuffy Luv
