A MAN has sparked outrage after offering free rent to a “roommate with benefits” — demanding she is free from STDs and without “crazy ex-boyfriend stalkers”.
In an ad, the landlord from Deptford, New Jersey, USA, also said she must be single woman and aged between 18 and 35 to move into his “upscale” home.
She will be given a key to “come and go as they please” and will even be allowed to drive his “newer” car.
The original advert, which has been met with fury on social media, reads: “If you are a younger single female (18-35) and are looking for a great place to live as part of a roommate with benefits or a live-in girlfriend type of arrangement, then this post might be what you are looking for.
“I’m a single independent caucasian male, looking for a drama-free female to come and share my upscale home with me. I have no criminal record, non-smoker, non-drinker, etc.
No smoking, drugs, pets, STDs or crazy ex-boyfriend stalkers
“If we both like each other, you would stay here and you wouldn’t have to pay for any home expenses so that you can save everything that you earn for yourself.
“This is a simple drama free arrangement that will provide you with a safe place to live as well as banking all of your earnings. You will be given your own key as you can come and go as you please. Upscale neighbourhood.
“In addition, use of a newer car could be provided too. No smoking, drugs, pets, STDs or crazy ex-boyfriend stalkers.”
After the post was shared on Reddit, some reacted to it with anger and concern.
One said: “The fact that he felt the need to say she’ll have her own key and can come and go as she pleases concerns me.”
Another added: “I 100 per cent promise you, the keys are for show, you definitely won’t be coming and going as you wish.
“Probably no going out at all, fairly quickly. Can only hope you are being facetious, cause this is one scary ad.”
But others were less worried:
One said: “Go for it my dude. What’s wrong with trying to arrange a mutually beneficial agreement?”
