Lorrin, Female, 17yrs

Looking in: South Brisbane, Saint Lucia, Brisbane City

Hey I'm Lorrin. I just graduated high school and am hopefully moving to Brisbane for uni (UQ). I'm pretty easy-going and a little goofy, I keep to myself but I'm sociable and get along with pretty much anybody. I can take care of myself; cleaning, washing, household duties which is pretty good for someone in my generation. I am respectful and appreciate respect in return. I'm down with fun and games and can have a good time. Even though I'm out of work, I will be looking for a job in Brisbane ASAP, that being said I can still afford 150-170$/week. I'm super keen to live in Brisbane and hope I can find some good people.

Love spontaneous adventures and ready to walk/hike any-and-everywhere. I would love to live with any of you amazing people out there, so if you have a room to offer or are looking to team up, hit me up :D Cheers, Abhi

I'm very social (but know how to respect boundaries and personal space) and would love to develop a good relationship with any flatmates! I think of myself as quite easy going, and I love exercise, but I think the main factor here is that I AM CLEAN. Working well together is a major plus.

We are a group of three sociable and bubbly girls, looking for a few more people to join us at our new house (when we find one). Unfortunately we have to part from our current housemates after our lease ends, but we would love to continue on our traditions as "The Bardy Bunch", and keep a fun and family atmosphere. We are looking for responsible, but social people- we love the occasional loose party, but also value nights in. We would prefer a few guys to balance out the house, but would never say no to cool girls. About us: Mel and Bec are both recent UQ grads, soon to be starting full-time professional work in the city. Cassie is a beautiful swede, struggling to stay in the country (she does have a job though, don't sweat it). Basically, we are just looking for clean people who we can be friends with and have family dinners together (no need to be able to cook though, although it would be appreciated).

Hey there, I'm Emily, 20 years old and a student. I study at QUT and am a second year Secondary Education student majoring in History. I work part time at an Outside School Hours Care in Moggill and at Suncorp Stadium as Bar Staff. I'm friendly and quiet but still happy to be social with my new roomies. I've lived in share houses for four years and have shared with lots of different people, all ages, genders and nationalities. I'm an animal lover so pets are no issue for me, I'd say they're encouraged :) I'm looking for a place with easy access to public transport (specifically train stations or the 444 bus) and an unfurnished room is a must as I have a queen sized bed, desk and other miscellaneous bits of furniture. I've joined a gym and attempt to go often but it usually ends in completing my Gilmore Girls binge on Netflix, my favourite pastime. I'm way too excited for Game of Thrones to return this year and roommates who watch it with me are encouraged to message me. Bonus points if you love Harry Potter. I can be a little flexible with the move date and am happy to overlap for a week or two if the right place comes along, If you want to know anything else just shoot me a message, I'm more than happy to answer any of your questions :) P.S. I'm currently working a lot so messaging on Flatmates would be the best way to contact me :)

Hi! My name is Kieran. FIRST THINGS FIRST (EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ!): 1) This ad posting is VERY LONG and I've done that DELIBERATELY. I do this to "Weed out the Tyre Kickers" (as it's known/called in Online Marketing Circles). Of course the "Tyre Kickers" are bad flatmates! 2) This ad may cut-out for you (being so long). If so, simply send me me a brief message with your email and I will send you this as a word attachment for easy viewing. :) And Don't Worry I will NEVER spam you! 3) If you DON'T WANT TO READ THE WHOLE THING THEN JUST PLEASE UNDERSTAND MY TWO BASIC REQUIREMENTS BEFORE MESSAGING: a) I need air con (ideally in the bedroom), and b) I need reliable (without major dropouts) and fast internet connection. WHY READ IT IN FULL? (EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ!): - Well let's face it you never really know until you start "Sharing" with someone. We all know that!! - But why not take out some of the GUESS-WORK? Take out some of the RUSSIAN ROULETTE?? The Random DART THROWING at the Board??? - Reading my ad (or document) in full may bring you closer to finding the ideal flatmate :) - And the alternative? It's much closer to Russian Roulette in my opinion. You can go back to the next ad and ask the same old questions...It's all so COMMON...Are you clean and tidy? (who would admit to being not)...Are you social? (who would admit to being a hermit crab)... Are you easy to live with? (who would admit to being a/the next axe murderer!!). DON'T JUDGE ME (EXTREMELY IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ!): - As a flatmate based off the writing style/tone of this post. - As explained (in this post/ad) I'm an extremely relaxed and calm individual. I'm VERY EASY to live with. - Being a Writer (for a living) I many different writing styles/tones and I have chosen to adapt this style (with this level of detail) in the hope of attracting the perfect place and flatmate! Let's Cut Straight to the Chase (which is what you want)... I'M NOT (PLEASE READ - ANSWERS YOUR MAIN QUESTIONS): - In-your face type person. In fact I'm the complete opposite! I'm friendly and social but I tend to do "my own thing" in the main. This is just my personality. I AM (PLEASE READ - ANSWERS YOUR MAIN QUESTIONS): - Single/Straight/Mature/Non-smoking 36 year old Professional Working Male. - Looking to Share with one Other (unless you have a place that is very Special- hint hint) Professional Working Person (sorry no couples). - EXTREMELY reliable. Rent and bills will always be paid on time or in advance. I will supply you with references from my current landlord and previous landlords (if required). - 100% Without a Doubt Looking to Live somewhere for at Least the Next 12 months (probably Longer) and I am more than happy to Sign a/the Lease. - Calm, Relaxed and Laid-Back Individual. Yes that's right. I am the complete opposite of someone that is highly strung. That's what you want right? I seek likewise. And no that doesn't mean we can't hold an intelligent conversation ;) - Very Clean and Tidy but Definitely not Obsessive. "Obsession" is not a good trait to have in your life. It's what pushes bodybuilders to take steroids...it's what forces people to count every single calorie (yeah I used to do this lol)...it's why people with OCD count in their head. If the picture is not clear enough now I'll make it CRYSTAL. If you are "Obsessive" about anything (particularly cleaning) then this probably won't work. In regards to chores (like you no doubt) I restrict these to around the meal times. I have weekly chores I like to do each Friday afternoon (yes nice for some working from home lol) so that the flat/unit/property is nice and clean for the weekend! I also have monthly chores (but lets net go there and put you to sleep) ;) If you have or are open to getting a cleaner then I will consider that too. But I'm fine either way. - Moving from my Current Place in Sandgate because there is no Air-Con or Ceiling Fans! (I WILL NEED AIR CON - PLEASE READ FURTHER BELOW). - Writer (as mentioned earlier) and Online Marketer for a living. I have a VERY stable income and have been doing freelancing (writing/online marketing) work from home for the last 5 years (that's right, it's NOT new). Work references can easily be supplied. I work from home between the hours of 8:30am-5pm Monday to Friday. I divide my time equally between writing and marketing. That's around 20 hours of writing a week and 20 hours of working on a large marketing project (which I'm not getting paid for yet - but my time will come lol). DO NOT WORRY I AM QUITE NOT LOUD if you home during house hours. I'm a writer (firstly) and a marketer (secondly). In Plain English: I'm not on the phone (or listening to music) really at all as my work is obviously writing based. It is only every now and then when I get a new Client. Look let's just be honest. The ideal scenario is that you would be at work (in the main) during the week between those rough hours :) I CAN (PLEASE READ - ANSWERS YOUR MAIN QUESTIONS): - Give your PETS attention (if you have them and are at work) during my working day (my breaks). I like animals and can do this :) - Mind your PETS (including walking) and look after your belongings if you are away on Business/Holiday/Weekend Breaks a lot! You might be in a bind right now but I could be the SOLUTION TO YOUR PROBLEM. - Sign for your registered mail (during the week) and save you a lot of time lining up at the post office on Saturday Morning! I WILL (PLEASE READ - ANSWERS YOUR MAIN QUESTIONS): - Move in at WHATEVER date suits you! That's right. I want to move sooner rather than later but I'm in no rush. I'm not on a lease currently and can move whenever (and I mean the exact day/date that works for you). - ABSOLUTELY 100% WITHOUT A SHADOW OF A DOUBT NEED AIR-CON!! Surely having either air-con or ceiling fans should be compulsory (like insulation) in Queensland! Yes, I'm not a Queenslander (originally) if you haven't guessed already. And No this does not mean I will use the air con all day and night! I will use it to be comfortable and in moderation. I'm more than happy to chip in for the extra electricity bill if I use it more (I would in fact over-compensate you 100%). - Consider a SPACIOUS GRANNY FLAT/SPACIOUS STUDIO (if you have one on offer) provided it has Air-Con and that I can get solid/reliable (without dropouts) internet connection. It would have to be of a decent size though as I work from home during the week. I WANT (PLEASE READ - ANSWERS YOUR MAIN QUESTIONS): - Place with decent size kitchen and living room but this is not high on my hit list! I would much rather have a bigger bedroom (as explained below). I'D LIKE (PLEASE READ - ANSWERS YOUR MAIN QUESTIONS): - Flatmate this is just very calm, relaxed and laid-back. Simple as that. A bit of intelligent conversation doesn't go astray either ;) - Ensuite or Separate Bathroom (but not essential). - Ceilings fans are always good (in addition to air con). I'D LOVE (PLEASE READ - ANSWERS YOUR MAIN QUESTIONS): - Place that is very open/bright. I lived/worked in London 5 years and know all about the cold, rain and the DARKNESS!! I'm definitely more productive/efficient/creative when operating in a bright/open space. I NEED (PLEASE READ - ANSWERS YOUR MAIN QUESTIONS): - Decent (and I mean DECENT) sized bedroom. This should fit a queen size bed (ideally) and standard size desk (definitely). There should be a bit of a room to move too! Remember guys this is not only my bedroom but my "Creative Working Space." I'm NOT part of the corporate working world now. I've considered renting office space but I can't justify the cost at this stage in my life. I'M NOT LOOKING FOR (PLEASE READ - ANSWERS YOUR MAIN QUESTIONS): - Place that is miles (more than 15 minutes walk for me) from PUBLIC TRANSPORT. I won't have a car for at least the next 3-6 months and so nothing further has to be said! - Place that is miles (more than 15 minutes walk for me) from any type of SHOPS (groceries etc). - Place that is miles from ANY GYM (more than 15 minutes walk for me). - Place with LOTS OF LAWN and GARDEN to be maintained. Unless you love doing this of course! A little bit might be OK. In summer the maintenance just becomes too much. - PARTY HOUSE or NOISY ONE. I need the peace and quiet most of the time. And no I don't mean "Church Quiet." I live in society too lol ;) I'M LOOKING FOR (PLEASE READ - ANSWERS YOUR MAIN QUESTIONS): - Place that is 12-15 minutes walk max to TRAIN STATION/SHOPS/GYM/S. Buses are good but prefer trains. With Shops I mean groceries. - AIR CONDITIONED place. Ideally in all main rooms. I understand it's expensive and I don't plan to use it much but I need it to be comfortable during the day and on briefly at night to get to sleep. Don't worry I will over-compensate you (when the bill comes in) for my usage. - RELIABLE (no dropouts in main) and FAST (doesn't have to be lightning!) INTERNET connection. My income depends on this. At my current property there has been problems with the connection at times which is a real negative. To summarise: I'm looking for RELIABILITY (UP-TIME) over speed (but of course the speed must be reasonable). - PARKING (either reliable street parking or even better lock up garage). I will get a car eventually!! - PARTLY FURNISHED (TV, Fridge/Freezer, Washing Machine at least). I don't mind chipping in for other stuff. For my bedroom I have a standard size desk and will buy a queen size bed if the room doesn't have one. That's all the furniture I have! All the rest is clothes. So if you are selling anything then I might be interested :) OPTIONAL READING - LEARN (NOT GUESS) MORE ABOUT YOUR TRUE FLATMATE Now for the Extremely Boring Nitty Gritty Minute Detail Part! Lol OK I'm joking about Nitty Gritty!! But Why the Detail? I ask you WHY NOT?? 1) Think of the hundreds (if not thousands of dollars) you may potentially have to spend if you choose the wrong flatmate based of: a) Putting a basic ad up and HOPING for the best. b) Just asking them a few STANDARD questions at the viewing. c) Going off their DEMEANOR and what they LOOK like. 2) And no I'm not just talking about absolute worst case scenarios like damage to your property. Yeah that can happen (but it's pretty rare - you have to assume most people are good people). a) I'm talking about advertising costs and just lost rental income. b) Not to mention your precious valuable time wasted! YOU CAN NEVER EVER PUT A DOLLAR FIGURE ON THIS!! OPTIONAL READING - LEARN (NOT GUESS) MORE ABOUT YOUR TRUE FLATMATE - I have recently done some exploring around Brisbane suburbs (without a car - as I don't have one now but will look to buy in next 6 months) and found that the "Listed Preferred Suburbs" best fit my requirements. - I will consider the areas of Nundah, Toombul, Sherwood, Oxley, Fairfield, Auchenflower, Taringa, Toowong, Indooroopilly, Mitchelton, Sunnybank, Sunnybank Hills, Bulimba (maybe wishful thinking) and Hamilton (most definitely wishful thinking). - These suburbs (depending on the location of the property) meet most of my criteria. Please give me a shout if you have something in those areas! - For other suburbs it would want to be SOMETHING SPECIAL!! - Everything comes down to the place and of course I want to be able to gel and live comfortably with you :) I'll just know straight away when I see the place and meet you. I'm very much an instinct person (like most of us). OPTIONAL READING - LEARN (NOT GUESS) MORE ABOUT YOUR TRUE FLATMATE - BIT ABOUT ME: - I like the gym (first thing in the morning), walks (near the water if I can), tennis (now and again), football (on TV), admiring nature (whenever I can), travelling (every so often) reading (daily for work and before bed), writing (for work and pleasure), self-improvement (generally), online marketing (work), restaurants (many), socialising (mainly on weekends) and coffee (in small doses). - I'm a social/friendly person but I'm definitely more on the quiet side. I'm not big on TV (in one place I didn't even own a TV lol) at all so don't expect me to join you on the couch watching it. I don't mind the news and a bit of sport though. I just find you learn more by reading. - I do all of my socialising with friends outside of the flat/property but I 100% don't mind if you have people over. I'm not one for dinner parties but go for it!! - I'm not a vegetarian. I cook my own meals as have my own diet I need to follow. Of course there may be a time where a meal or take-away could be shared. - I'm a clean and tidy person and expect likewise. - I'm straight and single currently. I'm too focused on my online business at the moment to pursue anything. - I'm open to living with people of all cultures and sexuality. - I have lived and worked in Sydney (4 years) London (5 years) and Melbourne (3 years) previously. OPTIONAL READING - LEARN (NOT GUESS) MORE ABOUT YOUR TRUE FLATMATE - MY WEEK DAY SCHEDULE: - I'm up each day at 5am (always) and go to bed at 9pm (98% of the time) in the evening. I shoot for eight but settle for around 7 hours sleep! - I'm extremely quiet when I get up at the time. I simply get up, have my morning coffee and head to the local gym. I find it sets up my whole day :) - Then I'll simply come home (from the gym) and have my breakfast and then do some morning chores (quietly if you are in bed). - By 8:00am (yeah I like to relax in the morning not rush) I'll go into my bedroom/office/creative space (whatever you want to call it lol) and do some pleasure/work reading or generally relax (depending on my work schedule for the day). - Then between the hours of 8:30am-5pm I'm working solidly (with breaks - yes including patting your dog or cat ;)). - 5pm-6pm: I will go for a wander/stroll/walk/jog/run (whatever I feel like). - 6:30pm-8pm: I will have dinner and watch a bit of TV (news or whatever is on - I'm not fussy). - 8pm-9pm: I ALWAYS (and I mean always) unplug/tune-out and minimise technology usage completely. Just read (mostly non-fiction). - 9pm: Bed!! Lol. All pretty structured right? Well these times are NOT ALWAYS STRICT. DON'T WORRY I'VE NEVER BEEN ONE FOR THE ARMY. I use them more as guidelines (but this will give you A GREAT idea as to who you would be living with and when you might see me etc etc). OPTIONAL READING - LEARN (NOT GUESS) MORE ABOUT YOUR TRUE FLATMATE - MY WEEKEND SCHEDULE: - Like Most of us I like to unwind and generally relax on weekends :) - I still get up early ( around 6am) but I do stay up later and don't have such a set/regimented/structured day planned! - I'm more a "go-with-the-flow" type of person when it comes to socialising on weekends. Yeah I keep a strict diary for my work but not for social engagements :) - I have a small group of friends in Brisbane (as still quite new to the city). - On weekends I like to get out where possible. For example gym on a Saturday. Lunch/Movie/Dinner with a friend. I might meet up with my youngest sister (I have 3) too. - I'm not the sort of person that will go out for a whole day though. It's generally for half a day or maybe 3/4 of the day (max). Lol I'm just telling this so you know that I will be around a bit on weekends. I'm working on a online marketing project (which I'm passionate about) and so I will spend some time in my room working on that. You might say why work on the wkend? Well for me it's not really work as I'm passionate about it. It's more fun :) I also have a plan and don't always plan to be doing this on wkends! STILL WITH ME??? - We are finished now Lol. FINALLY YOU SAY!! - But at least now you have a much BETTER IDEA as to the person you would be living with! - I'm sorry but I've never been a fan of just throwing a dart at the dartboard and hoping for the best. You need more precision than that if you want to attract the right flatmate (or anything else you want in life). Nothing in life is random despite lotto numbers (despite what you believe). TAKE THE NEXT STEP!!! 1) Please send me a brief (lol not this long) message or text if you have something that will fit my main criteria or if you have any questions for me. 2) I am very responsive to messages (outside of work hours - I do have time on my breaks though) and just to repeat I currently have a place where I can leave at any time. 3) Please avoid calling me (about your place) between the hours of 8:30am-5pm (my work hours). If you have to then please just leave a voicemail and I will get back to you. Calling outside these times is perfectly fine :) FINAL NOTE: - Messages (from property owners) that don't meet my basic requirements (i.e. no air con or not near public transport) will be ignored (it's a long post but seriously just skim read guys - you do it each and every day!). - No hard feelings if I don't respond :) Thanks for your time :) Kieran NOTE: I may be interested in Teaming-Up (and finding a place) but just with one other person (no couples) and you would need to have (or invest) in the majority of the furniture. Don't worry I'd be willing to chip in too :)

Hi! My name is Loïc and I am a 21 y/o recent graduate of UQ (international relations and political science).

I also like to kick back in my room and play some video games, which often serves as my downtime. My income stems from part-time work, although I am seeking full-time employment this year. Would love to hear from you :)

Erika, Female, 21yrs

Looking in: Indooroopilly, Taringa, Toowong

Hey I'm Erika! I'm a 21 y/o avocado enthusiast, originally from south coast NSW living in Brisbane for study. I'm a bit over half way through my Pharmacy degree at QUT. I'll be part time at uni this coming semester and picking up more shifts at the chemist I work at in Corinda. I am very clean, and considerate of my room mates. I'm super friendly and chilled, but I do value my own space. I have adopted the kittens I was fostering for over a year so I am looking for somewhere I can have them/room mates who will be nice to them. Their names are Phoebe and Olive, they are gorgeous and are incredibly well behaved :) Seeing as finding pet friendly places on here is proving a little difficult I'm alternatively wanting to find people to team up with and look for a fresh place, I've seen heaps of pet friendly places on realestate.com for far, just need people to look with! I've been a vegetarian for my whole life, and in an ideal world I would love to live with other veggos, but it's not a hardline requirement.

Hi there! **update* I will be here till January of 2018 but am flexible in terms of length of stay! Open to 6, 10, or 12 months!** I'm a FT student at UQ, so I am generally not around much between studying and class. I'm respectful of everyone's belongings, down to earth, social, non-smoker, and tidy. Not a party animal in the least, and looking for like minded flatmates :) I'm flexible in terms of studios, flatshare or sharehouse. I just moved here from the states. I can do furnished/unfurnished (I can buy a simple bed if needed). That said, a place with AC is most definitely needed. Anything else is secondary! Feel free to reach out with any questions or inquiries!!

Tahlia, Female, 21yrs

Looking in: Milton, Auchenflower, Toowong, Hamilton, Albion, Bowen Hills, West End, Kangaroo Point, Woolloongabba, New Farm, Morningside, Balmoral, Bulimba, Teneriffe, Newstead, Brisbane City

Hey guys! I'm Tahlia! I'm currently living in a share house on the north side of Brisbane but I'd love to move out and get closer to the city. I'm looking for a housemate that's probably between the ages of 21 and 25. I'm 21. I'm a very quiet and reserved person but I love to have a laugh. I'm a neat and tidy person, I like having a clean house but my bedroom does tend to get a bit messy, I do a clean on weekends when I'm not working. On one hand I'm quite the hermit, I'll happily sit at home and do a Netflix Marathon all day but on the other hand I love to be outside and exploring new places or going to the beach. I'm a non smoker and rare drinker, I don't like to party and I go to bed early. I'm a musician and a beginner pole dancer. I love food, books, photography and videography and if there's an animal around, there's a 100% chance I'll talk to it rather than any humans nearby. I have a pet - you'll need to be open minded because she's a rat. I know I know, a rat definitely wasn't my first choice of pet either but she was so darn cute I couldn't resist! She IS strictly an outside pet though but she comes inside for cuddles. I also have a gorgeous cat called Turtle who lives with my parents - I would love to bring her up to live with me if it's at all possible but it depends on the living situation. I need to move into a place where I can put my car under cover or in a shed and I have a jewellers bench that I also need to put somewhere - a shed is ideal for that too. I would prefer to be able to spread out my belongings throughout a house as I have too many things to keep in one bedroom. I would love to live much closer to the city, 15 minutes or under would be amazing. Travelling to work from where I live now is getting super expensive! I'd also prefer to move in with just one person. If we team up, I would prefer that we find a 3 bedroom place so that my parents, and friends, have a place to stay when they visit from NSW. I ask that my new roommate doesn't smoke please! If i sound like someone you would like to live with, feel free to contact me and we can meet up for coffee and chat sometime!
