Aldo

Looking in: Abbotsford, Ascot Vale, Thornbury, Fairfield, Brunswick, Carlton North, Northcote

Hi, since my landlord recently decided to sell his place I'm looking for a new home. I'm Aldo, a 33y old guy, toilet-trained and in my 5th year of being abstinent from chasing mailmen. Oh I wish sometimes I could be a dog, my life would be so much easier! Ok, back to the humans. I think I'm well house-trained, I've shared places ever since turning 19 and I've learned to clean up after myself in communal areas. I'm aware with things that might bother others and up for a chat and socialising most of the time, I like people I can trust and that try to find a collective solution to arising household problems. I understand sharing a place means we share the responsibilities that come with it and I'm mature enough to do my part for a functional household. A proactive communication for example is a good way to avoid issues. I'd like to hold myself to the same standard as I hold others, trying to find empathy, self-criticism and integrity around me. In more simplistic terms, I am happy if I can contribute in making people feel more at home and treat each other as friends rather than just housemates. Interests: I go out and chase balls sometimes (soccer), riding my bike around, beachtime, going to as well as playing gigs (I play guitar and occasionally bark to it). I also like to read and educate myself about things, cooking & eating in and occasionally out. I try to live environmentally conscious but without forcing my lifestyle choices onto others. Job: I am currently applying for jobs with my Master of Science and work experience in medical imaging. I'm financially stable and reliable and not dependent on finding a job straight away, so paying rent/bills and having other expenses for socialising will not be an issue with me (proof and references can be provided). If you think we could get along or have any questions, feel free to contact me. Thanks for reading and have a good day :) Woof.

Cari-An

Looking in: Clifton Hill, Coburg, Melbourne, Preston, Carlton North, Thornbury, Brunswick East, Carlton, Northcote, Collingwood, Fitzroy North, Fitzroy

I'm an LGBT nerd that enjoys reading, comics, video games, art, music and science. (My personality could be described as 'ISFJ', if you believe in that sort of thing). I work full time, running admin at a circus store near Melbourne. I'm a night owl, but not a partier; I make so little noise that you might not even notice that I'm awake. I'm well traveled and love exploring new places. I am easygoing, super reliable with bills, and like being "socially antisocial" with my housemates and selected friends. I need to live in a clean and well-maintained environment. Currently in need of one or two new, interesting people to live with once my current tenancy ends*. Unfurnished rooms are a must, as I have a desk and a couple of bookshelves to fit into my space. I also have a washing machine available if needed! As I have bad knees and no car, proximity to trams and trains is very important. This is the first time I've had to look for flatmates that aren't already friends, so I'm unsure what kind of information people like to know up-front. I'm intersectional, queer-friendly and trans-friendly. Happy to answer any questions that you might have. My name is quite unusual so I haven't uploaded photos, but I promise I'm a real person and not a bot! I'm looking to live with conscientious and considerate housemate/s long-term, in a place that feels like a home. * There's been a lot of noisy construction in my current area that I'd like to get away from. My current housemate is moving into a small apartment with their partner, so I need to find new housemate/s.

Emily

Looking in: Preston, Kew, Thornbury, Northcote, Brunswick

Looking for a room in the north to move in preferably around the end of May, but flexible with dates. I'm a music grad working part time in retail plus doing a bit of freelance work. I'm pretty tidy, reliable with cleaning up after myself and paying rent before it's due, and am a left wing meat eater. I'm after a fairly chill/quiet place, but totally fine with the odd party. A house where I could practice when housemates are out would be ideal. Also some type of heating during the winter months would be lovely - but not a deal breaker. A

Tyler

Looking in: Preston, Thornbury, Brunswick West, Brunswick East, Brunswick

I'm a young relaxed guy that has recently moved from the middle of no where in country South Australia (in the Flinders Ranges) to the "Big Smoke". I make Coffees for a living and enjoy dogs, drinking, going out for a dance and venturing aroud this new city I call home. Looking for a long term house for myself and my dog Zephyr or Zeff, he is an 8 month old Pure black Shar Pei. Extremely well house trained, toilet trained and can sit pretty well. He enjoys dressing up, going for lengthy walks and collecting 1 of every pair of shoes in one room (this isnt a joke, if you meet him you will understand). I'm 75% sure you will fall in love with both of us but understand that taking on a guy and his dog is a huge undertaking. If you think we could both work please contact me. He is currently staying at my mums back in SA and I would really love to have him over here with me :(

Becca

Looking in: Thornbury, Abbotsford, Pascoe Vale South, Melbourne, West Melbourne, Northcote, Coburg, Fitzroy North, Fitzroy, Collingwood, North Melbourne, Carlton, Brunswick West, Brunswick East, Brunswick

Hey babes! I am really really keen for a new place to live. Somewhere with at least 1 other girl; I’d be keen to live with 2 housemates ideally but open to 1 or 3 :) Love to find some folks who are into creative and/or arty things, who have their own busy lives like me but also enjoy sitting down with a cuppa or a wine at the end of some days for a chat. <3 My current place doesn’t really have that family vibe and I’d really like to be somewhere a bit more social & cosy. Keen on art & houseplants? I have lots of both to bring! I’m 27 (soon 28) and have been renting since I was 17. I teach singing and do assorted other things for money (music & art, modelling, occasional cafe or bar work, etc) I’m very careful with money and have never been late on rent or bills. I’m super clean & tidy. I’m an omnivore but wanting to start eating less meat (so if you van teach me sweet veg recipes that’s a bonus!) Apart from arty stuff I’m into psychology, philosophy, anatomy, humans in general :) I don’t smoke, I don’t drink much but enjoy a nice glass of red or whisky sometimes. Not so keen on: televisions (especially ones that are on all the time or playing reality TV/commercial TV), furniture covered in pet hair, smokers, conservatives/bigots, party houses, people who can’t clean up after themselves or help with regular house maintenance. Open to: Kitties, bunnies, birds, queers, 420-ers, friends over for potluck dinners & movie nights. My budget is around $800/month or $200/week. Looking Northside (Brunswick+East+West, Coburg, Pascoe Vale South, Fitzroy+North, Collingwood, North Melbourne, Parkville, Northcote, Thornbury, Carlton+North, those kinda places). I teach my voice students from home, so need other a large bedroom which i can split with my Japanese screen to make a semi-professional space, OR ideally a house which has an additional nice shed/sunroom/study which I could teach from (and am totally open to making this a shared music+art studio when I’m not teaching). OR… if the rent is somehow miraculously cheap enough, I might be able to be fine with finding a studio to rent and not having to teach from home! (I would need to be able to set up my desk & instruments/equipment in this space permanently.) If I sound like a good match and you have a room opening up let me know! I’m not in a lease situation where I am now, so can leave any time (just need to give 2wks notice) and am not in a rush, I want to find the perfect place, so if you have something becoming available in a month or two do let me know still! <3

Haylee

Looking in: Fitzroy North, Thornbury, Northcote, Brunswick East, Brunswick

I'm Haylee, a 35yo creative lady with varied interests. I teach meditation and yoga and run a couple of creative businesses from my studio in East Brunswick. I teach a few evenings a week and spend most days in my studio but sometimes do admin from home. I like to eat healthy, predominately vegetarian although don't mind if you aren't, and I enjoy cooking as well as the odd wine. Music is another passion of mine, I love all kinds of music but tend to lean towards more obscure flavours. While my clubbing days are pretty much behind me I often have music on when I'm home - I listen to PBS or RRR and a lot of varied artists (love my soul, old rnb, hiphop, 60-70 rock, future beats etc), and I love getting out to see live music when I can. I'm usually teaching or have stuff on most evenings but do enjoy a chilled night in when I'm home, don't watch TV but love a good film or series during winter. I'm a pretty relaxed person and I like my home to be a sanctuary - looking for someone similar

Hannah

Looking in: Coburg, Thornbury, Northcote, Brunswick East, Brunswick

I'm Hannah, 23 and in my final year of a science degree at Latrobe (full-time). My interests include science, nature, procrastinating by binge watching Netflix, cooking, patting dogs I meet in the park and laughing at the antics on my cat Cat Stevens. Which brings me to another question, is Cat Stevens welcome to move in too? She's 6 months old, very sweet and loves pretending she can have conversations with everyone. I'm tidy, enjoy chats and sometimes sharing meals but also enjoy my own space. I think I'm pretty easy to live with, and have rental references to back me up if need be. Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks, Hannah.

Nuna

Looking in: Abbotsford, Fairfield, Fitzroy, Coburg, Thornbury, Northcote, Richmond, Brunswick

Hello, my name is Noona 😊 I have moved from Western Australia about 5 months ago for my studies. I'm a full time student studying naturopathy in the city (whooooo final year) but also work at the cherry tree hotel helping me be very reliable with money and bills etc. I'm 29years old and have travelled the world for 10 years gaining me the experience of good house sharing etiquette. I tend to like my environment clean and fresh with lots of nature and plants about...plus I have a wonderful crystal collection to bring good vibes to the household. I like to believe I bring happiness and light to all those around me and am always willing to share my alternative therapy (massage, iridology, meditation, and natural medicine) with the household. I also own a beautiful VW kombi van so awesome adventures can be had in that too!! Ideally I would love to be able to park my Kombi off the street if possibility. I'm not a massive party animal but enjoy a small shin dig/ BBQ here and there. I'm a big animal lover and like to volunteer/dog sit from time to time so a pet friendly pad would be ideal but I don't have any pets of my own so have my options open. I am a vegetarian but am absolutely fine with living in a meat eating household. Hopefully I am the house mate for you but if not I hope you find who you're looking for 🙏🏼 Thanks so much. Peace and light, Nuna
