The fuck I mean, we were all bad as students (assuming you both are) but even in my avoidant student halls days I ensured I got the odd bit of fruit & veg in me, etc. And chances are he hates your mess, grumbles about it in private but puts up with it because he fancies you, judging by what else you've said about him.
Nope neither of us are students!He's a middle aged business man. I've always loved cooking, even when I was a student although I did eat a fair bit of crap, too back then! He doesn't really understand food. He didn't know what an avocado was, and he was going to the shop once and asked did I want anything, I asked for some salsa and he asked me what it was, what colour it was (he didn't know what it was, basically).
Also I once said he could have some of my popadums, and he tried to eat them straight out of the packet without cooking them and then text me to say 'These popadums are disgusting I have put them in the bin' :p

This, tbh. I used to bitch about my flatmate all the time on here.
As far as I'm concerned, it's better to bitch/talk about someone's annoying behavior to a bunch of people who don't know them than it is to do the same behind their back to people who do know them.

Let me assure you I find none of your actions to be dickish. We'rr perfectly capable of airing our own grumblings that are glued to the trivial end of the scale. Your situation has the potential to make things unbearably awkward for one or both of you if it goes wrong, so venting your frustration appears to have been useful for you on this occasion.
The others may well be right in that he does want to plunger your plughole. He may just need a bit of life coaching, and you could perhaps use him to help get cooking done. He'd learn how to skin a carrot and warm it up, you get to order a minion around.
I think it is, too. I don't want to actually upset him, he's irritating to me but he isn't a horrible person or anything-we just clash a lot!
Haha plunger down the plughole!I am SO using that one!!
