Abhijeet

Looking in: Narrabundah, Kingston, Griffith, Forrest, Deakin

Coming across to Canberra to join the public service after studying in Sydney. I've lived in share houses in Sydney and in Munich, Germany where I did an internship so I'm well house-trained and also love meeting new flatmates. I'm independent but also enjoy a fun, friendly and relaxed household where we can occasionally go out for meals/movie/netflix binge. I am also more than happy to leave people to their own space as well - highly adaptable.

Sunil

Looking in: Forrest, Griffith, Kingston, Barton

Hey everyone I'm Sunil and I am due to start work as a public servant in the beginning of February in Canberra. I'll be relocating from Perth and am looking for a place to stay in as soon as possible. I don't have any specific preferences when it comes to housemates and open to stay with anyone. A little bit about me, I enjoy watching and playing sports including tennis, soccer and cricket and up for a jog or a gym session throughout the week. I am working towards being an okay cook (currently a little hit and miss with my cooking) and am willing to do the occasional cook off with my future flatmates. Apart from sports and cooking, I am a bit of a book worm, enjoy playing board games as well as watching TV shows and movies on Netflix and I do the occasional binge watch when I have the time. I am clean and organised and am very considerate to privacy and downtime when needed. I don't consider myself an extrovert but nonetheless like to socalise and spend time with friends rather than spending all my time at home. Lastly I would like to have the occasional dinner and drink with future housemates and I would love to be friends rather than just another person living on the premises. Hope to meet some of you soon!

Hey, my name is Lachlan and I am a 23-year-old Canberran, born and bred. I work full-time as a journalist, and I am looking for a new place to live after the owners of the house I was living in wanted to move back in. Fun facts about me: 1. I have a lot of siblings, like a lot, so I know how to live with people and to make sure I keep the house nice and tidy. 2. I am a bit of a sports nut, so when I am not writing about sport, I tend to be either on the sideline or on the couch or in the pub watching some form of sport. 3. I am a people-person, so I always down for a red wine and chat. Looking forward to hearing from you. Ta

Looking in: Karabar, Griffith, Fyshwick, Deakin, Manuka, Queanbeyan

Hey all, I'm pretty much a "what you see is what you get" kinda guy, polite and friendly by nature, I'm also clean tidy and respectful. I love travelling and the outdoors, meeting new people and having great conversations. Having said that, I also understand and respect the need for privacy and expect the same of others. I've moved to Canberra for a career change and now that I'm settled in my new role I'm looking for a nice and convenient place to live. I'm a Frenchman in my early 30s and have been in Australia for about 6 years now, but in Canberra just a few months. In my spare time I like reading, exercising, watching Netflix or playing video games, listening to music or just generally socializing with friends and meeting new people. I also love skiing and the mountains (especially in Europe and Japan), I speak fluent French and English and a little bit of Spanish (and a few words in Japanese) and I'm always up for practicing. That's really all I care to say as I'm that type of person you'll "get" by meeting in person rather than just reading about me preaching about myself. Happy to answer any questions though. All the best! Nic

Lauren

915 m from Forrest

Looking in: Manuka, Canberra

Okay so a bit about myself, I have lived in share housing for almost 3 years now, so I definitely know the drill. I’m 19 years old, I work as a dental assistant in Manuka, normally Monday - Thursday & Tuesday - Friday. I’m looking for a second job for nights and weekends as I’ve recently just left my bar job. So normally I’m pretty busy working 7 day weeks. If I’m not working I go to my parents house in bredbo NSW, (45mins from Canberra, which is where I’m from). For fun I like to hang out with friends, eating, movies, drinks all that kinda stuff! I do keep to myself quite a bit when it comes to share houses, just because I’m normally so tired from long hours. So you’ll normally find that I like to be in my room chilling out watching Netflix. I guess what I’m really looking for in a home is just a clean environment to be honest. Xo Lauren

I'm a casual, easy-going 27 year old professional who comes with her own four-legged bundle of love! I spend my spare time running with my dog, chilling with friends and binge-watching anything and everything on Netflix while cuddled up to my dog. I clean excellently but am a terrible cook, though I am keen to improve. Gatsby is a four year old cocker spaniel who adores every human he has ever met, including children. He will welcome you every time you come home with the happiest of dances. He is clean and well trained, and the only thing he loves more than a tennis ball is a cuddle. We're both keen to find a place to tread that line between hanging out with roomies for a drink or communal dinner, while respecting each other's privacy and need for space.
