Looking in: Windsor, Saint Kilda, Ripponlea, Prahran, Oakleigh East, Oakleigh, Murrumbeena, Malvern East, Huntingdale, Glen Iris, Glen Huntly, Elwood, Elsternwick, Clayton, Chadstone, Caulfield South, Caulfield North, Caulfield, Carnegie, Balaclava

I am Kristin, 24 years old, from Germany and coming as a grad exchange student in psychology to Monash University. I am a friendly, tidy, open-minded and uncomplicated person. I lived in shared flats not only in Germany but also for one year in India and for another ten months in Argentina. I like it to spend time with my flatmates and cook together or go out for a beer but also sometimes just spending time by my own. I love to sing and play the guitar, hike, read books and I am addicted to good (vegetarian) food and coffee. I am keen to learn new things and I try to play an active part in society for example in the feminist or the climate justice movement. Besides I like travelling and getting to know new places and people - hence I would love to get to know you too!

Hey, I'm Alex, a third year exchange student looking for accommodation in Melbourne from Mid-February to the end of June, Studying Literature. I'm pretty chill, quite neat and don't mind pitching in with the washing up at all. I enjoy reading thick books, exploring new places, drinking good coffee and watching terrible films. Being a Pomey, I'm probably going to burn a lot and complain about the weather, but I make up for it with some delicious cooking skills and taking banter like a champ. Aside from calls to my girlfriend, I'm none too noisy either, although I do occasionally sing in the shower. If you have a place close to the University of Melbourne, or just a tram line that can get me there, send me message and I'll be in contact ASAP. Hope to hear from you soon, Alex

I just finished uni in Canberra and I'm moving to Melbourne at the start of February to start a job at a law firm in the CBD. Love to travel, been to around 40 countries so far. I love to play sport (soccer and futsal) and try to get to the gym (but to be honest it's more of an ambition than a habit). I'm a good cook but awful at planning meals. I'm also a politics junkie and enjoy some good political satire on abc. I've previously leased an apartment in Canberra, stayed in student accommodation in the UK on uni exchange and made my way through countless hostel dorm rooms. I'm looking for housemates that are keen to hang out and chat/eat/drink but also realise I sometimes need my own space too. Regular house/family dinners wouldn't go amiss! Location is important but I'd much rather find the right group of people who have similar values to me. If you like binging tv shows, exploring the city, going on walks and bike rides and want someone who is friendly, clean, low maintenance and easy to live with, then I could be your guy. It's a cliche but I'm looking for a home not a house. "It's the vibe" - The Castle

Hi, I have found so many great flatmates on here and this time I'm the one looking. I have just moved back to Melbourne and I'm hoping to find a cool household of peeps that I can connect with. I've lived in share houses before and understand what needs to go down to create a good vibe and it's different with every house but often carries the same theme. I'm a Web Designer / Digital Strategist, I work for myself and travel around a bit. I play Basketball a couple of times a week, check out live music when I get the chance and go to Festival through the year too as it's a nice way to unwind. I'm from the Blue Mountains in NSW and I love the vibe in Melbourne as people down here seem really comfortable with themselves and I'm looking forward seeing who's out there. I hope I'm the right match for what you're looking for.

Looking in: Saint Kilda, Southbank

I'm a 25 y.o male from Indonesia that going to take Master degree course in University of Melbourne (Production Design for Screen). I'm rather a quiet person, but I really enjoy to share interesting story with everybody, especially a person that have different background or cultural differences with me. I'm tidy and I respect people that lives with me. I'm not hesitate to help you to take care the house that I lived on. Previously, I used to work as a junior Visual Effect Artist and a Graphic Designer in this past 3 and half years, so sharing and discuss about art (especially movies) is a thing that I'm enjoyed with. I'm a casual movie lover. watching movies is one of my favorite thing to do in my free time (especially with my close friends involved), I also love drawing, playing board game, making doodles, go to the gym, swimming, and of course find and share new foods (just not too spicy though!).

Hello all!!! I am a 23 year old single male currently residing in Sydney, but moving to Melbourne in mid-January for a 2 year placement in an IT consulting job. I am highly interested in health and fitness, and have a consistent meal structure, boil my own rice/pasta regularly, and have a "clean as you go" mindset in the kitchen so that it can be mostly left in a good state. Personality-wise, I'm a social introvert, meaning I love to go out and meet friends and new people, while also being happy with my own company. Since I am moving to a new city, I am more than happy to get to know new people and have a great time. I'm a punctual person in life, and will always pay rent and bills on time. I am looking forward to talking to potential future housemates.

My friend Russell is of the opinion that dating apps are great for finding flatmates and that sharehouse ads are great for finding dates. Tinder's in-house sociologist Dr. Jess Carbino says that the more information a user can share, the better (I should probably cite this reference). With that in mind I’m approaching finding a new home with the desperation of being single for the past five years and have outlined my prospective personal advertisement below. I have followed an OKcupid template because it prompts you with questions. Before you go any further! I would like to be able to have my dog Onion around for at least part of the time. She has doting grandparents in the country and I will likely split my time between the city and Castlemaine so she will not be around constantly. I like some degree of communal living at home and need a garden to potter in. Also preferably cheap, I don’t want to live in a perpetual state of rent stress. My self summary I’m about to start the second year of my Masters in Stage Design at VCA. I am artistic but extremely practical. I like to garden and grow my own food. I have a lot of indoor plants. I make 1:25 scale models for productions and make mini replicas of furniture from my house. I like it very much. I am 34, my birthday is in June, I am 5’ 8” tall, and currently weigh around 60kg. I like the oxford comma. My favourite colour is brown which is the most disliked colour in the world. I have mostly had relationships with women and probably fall under the queer umbrella. I am a vegetarian. My Meyers Briggs type is INTP. My arts practice is participatory and I am interested primarily in a collaborative theatre practice. According to EHarmony, highlighting certain traits gets you more replies. Here are five words men might want to consider putting in their online dating profile: 1. Physically fit (+96% more interaction than daters who did not use this word). I ride a bike for transport and do a lot of building so am reasonably strong. I don’t go to gyms or exercise for pleasure. I do have an active dog so that requires a modicum of energy. 2. Perceptive (+51%) Look I think I’m pretty insightful but my intuition regarding people is usually off. I suck at choosing flatmates and partners and usually wait for people to befriend me. 3. Spontaneous (+45%) I am NOT spontaneous. I need to plan in advance. Unless it is about food. Yes we should quietly cook 9 litres of soup at 11pm. 4. Outgoing (+44%) The definition of this is “friendly and confident” which is deceptive. Yes I am these things but need a lot of incentive to ‘go out’ and do them. 5. Optimistic (+39%) I am optimistic in regards to achieving design outcomes. You want to do that?! Yes lets figure out a way to do it. But I’m a realist. And pessimistic about the human race. 5 words women might want to consider putting in their online dating profile: 1. Ambitious (+48%) Yes, I am ambitious. I think this is one of my defining characteristics. 2. Perceptive (+46%) See above in the men’s section. 3. Sweet (+33%) I can be pretty salty but I will make you dinner or bake coconut cream pie for my classmates for no reason. 4. Hard working (+32%) Yes very. I work myself to the ground. It can be a problem. 5. Thoughtful (+28%) “absorbed in or involving thought” I am developing those ‘eleven’ wrinkles between my eyebrows. But I think they mean “showing consideration for the needs of other people” – see above under Sweet ie Salty. Dr. Jess Carbino (remember her from EHarmony?) also says people’s chances decrease by 15% when they wear glasses. What the hell! Glasses really frame a face. I wear glasses. I'm really good at Finding creative solutions. Caring for plants and animals. Setting expectations of myself too high. I am a good cook and understand flavour profiles unlike my father who constantly tries to substitute parsley for coriander. The first thing people notice about me My hair currently resembles that of Samuel Beckett on a windy day. Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food I tend to only read reference or non-fiction books with the exception of plays. I do not like Shakespeare with the exception of Titus Andronicus because of the difficulty of staging all the bloodshed. I subscribe to the New Yorker but they pile up so fast they are mostly just set dressing at this point. I like to do audio descriptions of the cartoons. I am currently reading a biography of Thornton Wilder. I have cried watching all of these Oscar buzzy films in the last month: Call Me By Your Name; I, Tonya; Lady Bird; Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri; Coco. Also two extremely underrated Meryl Streep films: Plenty and Defending Your Life. If you don’t like Meryl Streep I will be very suspicious of you. Tampopo Bridesmaids Saturday Night Live Levitated Mass, that documentary about the artist Michael Heizer I enjoy a wide variety of music. I particularly enjoy classical minimalism and listening to Golden Days Radio 95.7 FM and any station that has love song dedications. The Independent (dubious news source I know) says that listing food on your dating profile results in more replies. They suggest that listing guacamole would result in a 144% increase in respondents. Well guess what? I do like guacamole. I am currently propagating avocado seeds to sow a plantation. It is my little agricultural nest egg. Their second suggestion is potatoes at 101%. This is a bit perplexing. I do quite like potatoes and think they are severely underrated and more varieties should be grown in this country. They are very easy to grow. I suggest a mixture of straw and manure. I had a very bad food poisoning experience after eating at a Michelin Star restaurant in Spain in 2010 so I have an extreme dislike of truffles and truffle oil. I will gag. Again, I am a vegetarian. The six things I could never do without Toothpicks, cordless drill, a pencil (I prefer a 2H or H, who decided HB was the standard?), my dog Onion, an optional hat, and look to be honest probably a stash of pharmaceuticals because I get a lot of headaches. I spend a lot of time thinking about Conversations I should be having out loud. I really do worry a lot. Dramaturgy. Whether my mood will improve if I eat something. On a typical Friday night I am Unfortunately probably staring at a computer. What I am looking for in a partner In an ideal world I’d like to be with someone who wants to make things with me, ie someone in the theatre industry. Directors, actors, engineers? Is that bar too specific and high? Someone who wants to co-parent my animals. Something long term. You should message me if You want to live with me, you want to date me, you want to offer me a casual retail job, you want to be my friend.

I'm a 24 year old professional working in data analytics full time. I'm currently looking for a place to move into by 4 Feb (at the latest) I'm looking for a place (minimum 6 months) in West Footscray, North Melbourne, Fitzroy, Brunswick, Yarraville, etc. (I'm not that concerned with where, as long as closish to the city and public transport is around) I do contract remote book keeping on top of my full time job, so I have no problems with bills. I have 8 years of experience in sharehousing. I'm relatively quiet, although always willing to hang out with housemates. I drink too much coffee and come with a Netflix subscription I'm willing to share. Most weekends I'm off exploring the city or trying something new (like a museum, a gallery or a cooking class).
