I’m Melanie, 28 years old, originally from Germany but have been in Melbourne for over a year now, doing my PhD at Monash. I’ll bring several years of experience in living in shared houses with all kinds of different people and love traveling, seeing new things and getting to know new people.
I’m looking for an easy-going, sociable atmosphere and love getting together to hang out and cook, enjoy a glass of wine, watch a movie, go for a walk or something like that. Still, I’m not at all looking for a 24/7 babysitter and it should always be possible to just close your door and have privacy.
I don’t mind if an apartment shows that someone is living there, so it doesn’t always have to be spotlessly clean and I can tolerate a certain degree of chaos, but in general I appreciate cleanliness, especially around the kitchen and bathroom ;) But my general experience is that a common ground for living together can always be found, so I’m a fan of open and direct communication, honesty and respect :)
