Ivy

Looking in: Fitzroy North, North Melbourne, East Melbourne, Carlton North, Carlton, Abbotsford, Fitzroy, Collingwood

Hi! I'm Ivy and i'm from Byron Bay. I'm looking to make the move to Melbourne late January/early Feb to study my love, photography, at RMIT. Although I'm currently studying childcare and working in a child-care centre. I run a music blog with my current roommate called Funk'n'Punk that i do the band/music photography for! So most of my spare time is spent at local gigs, which is what i love most. House-mate wise i'm very calm and easygoing, clean, tidy and respectful of personal space. I currently live with a vegan so i'm used to not cooking or eating meat in the house if that is necessary. I tend to spend my time at home in my room editing photos, listening to music etc. but i'm also always for a chat or to share some tunes. Message me with any more Q's! Thanks!

Yi An

Looking in: Parkville, North Melbourne, Melbourne, East Melbourne, Carlton North, Carlton

Hey, I'm Yi An (or you can call me Madelyn) from Taiwan. I am currently living in Jakarta as an intern English teacher and will be studying Speech Pathology at the University of Melbourne by February. Looking for a comfortable place where I can have my own space but also hang out with friends. I am very respectful to people's needs and hope others would respect me the same way. I'm clean and tidy and would love things to be organized. I am also easy-going, friendly, reliable and positive and I love to laugh. Oh, and I love plants and animals. During the week I will probably be really busy, so I'll need a quiet place for me to relax (or study). But on the weekend or in my spare time, I enjoy drawing, painting, reading and going to the movies. I also love outdoor activities like mountain climbing, jogging, camping or just traveling around and exploring cool and unique coffee shops. Feel free to contact me if you think I will be a suitable Flatmate. :)

I like traveling and have lived in Japan for a few years where I taught at a university. I'm now working and completing a diploma in Japanese part time. I can speak Japanese pretty fluently and am pursuing it more so I can use it at work. As well as studying and working I try to keep active. I go to gym and play futsal twice a week. I'd like to live with people who share similar interests. If you speak another another language or are interested in international culture we'll probably get along. Other hobbies include music and snowboarding (when I can). I'm usually pretty quiet but also happy to socialize with sharemates. I'm clean, sociable and easy to get along with.

Hi, I'm Cris! A creative minded, 36yo guy, making ends-meet working long hours in Customer Service (both night shift and day shift). First and foremost, I'm absolutely drama free and I love that nice, calm lifestyle. Chilled and happy. Generally, I tend to enjoy my own company and can easily keep myself entertained doing creative things but, I also love to watch a movie with my housemates or share a meal together when we're all home at once and feeling social. I'm friendly, genuine and notoriously sarcastic if allowed to be! ;) I am a non-smoker but, don't mind living with outside smokers. I am gay ("A gay man in Melbourne. Groundbreaking!" - Miranda Priestley) so, I need to live in a gay friendly house. I love animals and I know lots about them so... new furry housemates to compliment the human ones are a big plus for me. Dogs get infinity points and a cuddle! ;) I'd like to find a place around $200-250pw (not including bills). I drive so, will just need a spot on-street. Also happy to provide character and rental references if needed. ;)

Erin

Looking in: Windsor, South Yarra, South Melbourne, Saint Kilda West, Prahran, Middle Park, Melbourne, East Melbourne, Albert Park

I'm a working professional with the worlds cutest and best behaved groodle. He's house trained/completely non shedding/hypoallergenic.  I live a fairly regimented life with work, gym, dog walks, etc. I like to go to dog beaches or walks on weekends and enjoy the occasional dinner party or wine and cheese night. I have a very introverted side and sometimes retreat to my own room for quiet time. Other times I'm happy to hang out and socialize so it would be great to have a roommate that understands the balance of both. I love to cook and am happy to share meals if that's of interest. Otherwise, I'll meal prep once a week. I'm originally from Canada and do prefer a shoes off household. There's something about tracking everything from the outside into a home that I can't quite adjust to. Outside of that, I'm respectful of other peoples needs and requirements.

Hey, We are a young couple in our 30s, well-traveled, worked in various cultures, multilingual, have a variety of interesting experiences to share and easy to get along. I am an experienced finance professional and moved to Melbourne recently from overseas. I have previously lived in Melbourne briefly in 2015 and have a close circle of friends here. My wife is an educationist and more recently moved into jewelry designing, she will be joining me in Melbourne in a couple of weeks from now. We like to strike a balance between work and being fit and although we are not active gym people but try to walk the miles to keep in shape. My wife and I love to travel and we had the chance to extensively travel across the Middle East, Europe and Far East Asia. We are looking for an option which respects privacy of its inhabitants and has a great location. Please give me a call or send me a text if you would like to get in contact. Cheers, Umair

Matt

Looking in: Richmond, Fitzroy North, Fitzroy, East Melbourne, Collingwood, Abbotsford

I'm a British doctor moving to Melbourne to start working in Austin Hospital. I've been in Australia for a year in Queensland and hoping to stay long-term. Will be working 50% of weekends and doing night shifts so sometimes sleeping during the day. Interests include football (what you might call soccer), socialising, running, cycling, environmentalism, the gym, outdoor activities, reading and festivals. Very generic I know. Clean and house-trained. Mostly looking for a place in an existing house to move into but could be convinced to go for a new property. Like seemingly everyone else on here, I would like a sociable flat where we might share a bottle of wine and the occasional night out but also value some alone time.

Hi future flatmate, I've recently moved to Melbourne to work in the insurance industry. I'm a respectful flatmate and believe in creating a harmonious environment for everyone in the home. I am respectful of shared spaces but enjoy socialising and getting to know my flatmates and won't be shut up in my room when I'm home. When being social, I love to sit in the garden or living room, swap some stories, laugh, and share a bottle of wine with some delicious cheese. Board games are another great choice! Most evenings I will be busy with something, gym, yoga, pottery or cooking classes, dinner with friends, or errands and on weekends, I spend exploring, art galleries, shops, travel, and markets. What can I bring? Excellent cooking skills, happy to help out in flat duties, caring and open personality, mature attitude, and fun.

Hi there ! I'm 26, French, originally leather craftswoman, trying to find a job in construction for now. I'm currently sleeping from couch to couch in my friend's houses... so I often dream about a real bed in a cheerful home surrounded by lovely mates :) I used to live in several shared houses, always for a long time, always a new family ! I'm totally respectful of the personal space of each other and enjoy some quiet moments on my own but I also love sharing long and exciting discussions with friends, drinking a glass of wine (or two), as well as going to exhibitions or gigs. I love animals and sports, I love discovering new songs or new restaurants, I love when a house is clean, well-decorated and smells good and I love cooking...I didn't say that I was a good cook but I really like to cook for people so let me a chance ;) Hope we will get along ! Can't wait to meeting you !

I'm pretty laid-back and sociable but share-house savvy enough to be respectful of privacy and boundaries. I can appreciate the benefits of the occasional beverage after a long day at work, or some blah time on the weekends. I work the typical full-time Mon-Fri sitch, near St. Kilda Road. So ideally I’m looking to live somewhere close-by to public transport to get me there in a flash. I do have a car though, so parking options of some description are highly desired. Some of my interests include photography, live music and playing sport socially.

I work at Crown and will be studying Fashion Design and Merchandising next year in Fitzroy, so looking somewhere close to both work & school around later October - early November 2018 I’m friendly, clean, respectful, non-judgemental and love people. I’ve been living in a sharehouse with 2 other girls (20&21yrs) since February and have become incredibly close with them. I’m reliable with paying my own way & always happy to share chores. Most of my close friends are in their early 20s, so I guess that’s the kind of age group I’d prefer to share with, but obviously happy to get to know anyone :) x In my spare time I’m out clubbing, finding hidden bars, going to art galleries or fashion shows, or at the gym trying to get fit. When I come home I like to relax and am always chatty if others are, otherwise I’m happy doing my own thing Flexible with moving dates, happy to have just one flatmate or several, but not looking for shared rooms
