Don’t be a stranger! Especially if it’s this late in the year! If you think you haven’t gotten to know your roommates that well yet, this is the perfect weekend for it!
WHAT BETTER WAY TO MAKE FRIENDS WITH A PERSON THAN THROUGH THEIR LOVE OF FOOD. That being said, it’s always better to have two pairs of hands on deck instead of one in the kitchen. You can cook a more elaborate meal and reap the rewards together (a delicious meal)! Or you can do some grocery shopping together and learn more about each other’s favorite foods, least favorite food, and etc (like their signature favorite weird food combination 😂)
Do Something Nice For Them
Who wouldn’t appreciate a nice gesture in these trying times? Is your roommate running late to work or school (and you happen to be free)? Maybe you could drop them off! Are you both staying up late to study? You could offer to buy them a (coffee or tea) drink if you’re on your way out. You don’t have to go out of your way to do something, just if you are going to do something nice for yourself, it’d be nice to include your roommate as well. \(^-^)/
Have a Day Out (or In)
Probably the best way to bond with your roommate is to do something fun with them. Are you all hungry and no one wants to cook anything? Treat yourselves to a meal and get some dessert together afterwards! Do you all live near the beach? Spend the day at the beach! Is there a mall nearby? Do some window shopping together! If all of you are homebodies, that’s no problem at all! Bust out some video games or Netflix and scrounge up some food because you’re about to get to know each other in some new ways. Friendships are forged in the crucible of Super Smash Bros . . . or finding out that your roommate roots for the same ships that you ship. 😮🔥❤️
Chances are that your roommate wants to get to know you as much as you want to get to know them. It’s just that sometimes, you have to be the brave one to get things started!
