    Completely random person means the likelyhood of getting a roommate with issues is high. Could be anything from a homicidal murderer to one of them ankle biter brats from Europe. Just imagine spending four months with a coke whore or methhead....

    Also your fate is in the others hands, if they choose for whatever reason to leave ,your ejected as well... so while it's a little dark, if you get a bad matchup it might be best to just off them, before they get the same idea...

    Otoh, I have a fairly high chance to have a congenital relationship with most roommates. I have few real prejudices unless the other person starts trying to force their agenda onto me.

    The poll is crazy. Having 200 friends you maintained in the real life is already taxing. you are talking about 0.01% of 7,000,000,000? That's just 700,000 which I bet impossible to get beyond acquaintance.

    For being a friend in 4 weeks with one person, why is this hard?

    A very dangerous loophole in the conditions is that the roommate doesn't have to be alive in a 200 meter radius. :blobsleepless: To be clear, killing or incapacitating the roommate is possible, and then the only thing left to do is bring them wherever. Also, how would I know that I can wish myself off? Did the magical evil girl kidnapper tell me? Why would I believe them? Lots of assumptions to do before I even get to meeting my new roommate. :hmm:

    Expanding on that, what happens to you if your roommate opts out and teleports away from the island? I guess that also disqualifies you? I won't bother with befriending, and I'd avoid getting murdered in my sleep by opting out immediately. Sorry, random roommate. I'm not very money-driven. Safety is number one priority.

    Really depends on the roommate.
    I was with another girl in the dorm for 2 month and we absolutely hated each other (I still hate her).
    An year later, for a certain job I had a roomate for a week and we were instant friends! Still meeting once in a while.
    I would like to believe I would get along with most people but becaming a friend.. hard to say.

    I'd probably leave pretty quickly because I don't want to share a room with someone. Especially not a man - I'd be gone in an instant.

    If I did stay, it would depend on the person, of course. Someone who's racist, sexist, transphobic or homophobic is going to have a hell of a time with me. Anyone who's low on empathy is going to have a bad time too.

    But even if I got along with them, I'm unlikely to be real friends with them by the end of it. Complex PTSD makes me slow to trust and get attached to people. I can want to be friends with people and I can try to get close with them - and in the process, they often end up considering me a friend long before I even think of us as proper acquaintances. (I've learned to just take their pace as the right pace.)
    Four weeks, even with constant exposure, is probably just long enough for me to take a slight interest in the other person.

    I don't think that I have any admirable qualities, but thank you.
