Housemate and I are making each other miserable. What are my options?

My housemate and I have reached the point where it's really, really clear we aren't going to be able to work things out and get along. Despite this, she is digging her heels in about moving out. Snowflakes inside. [more inside]

What to do about a difficult roommate?

I freely admit I'm not good at having aggression directed towards me, so I can't tell what to do. Essentially, cultural differences are making it really hard to get along with my roommate. Please help this co-op living delicate flower (me) coexist happily with my very German roommate! Like everyone, I am a special snowflake. This is long and detailed because I'm processing as I write.

Where to find a reasonably priced studio flat or room in London?

Where to find a reasonably priced studio flat or room in London? I've been looking for accommodation in London for quite some time now, but so far I've been unsuccessful (or.. unlucky) with searching in all the "usual" places (Gumtree.com, Findaproperty, flatland.co.uk etc.) In the meantime, I need to move within a couple of weeks, and can't seem to find anything in East Central London (close to City University) that is not super expensive and/or managed by a (what i prefer to call) "greedy agent"... very frustrating :/

housemates have anonymous complaints about me

I live in a cooperative housing community of 30-40 people. A person from the conflict resolution committee has contacted me about some anonymous complaints about me and wanted to meet with me. I declined the meeting because I wanted to know what it was about first, and wanted to know who has a problem with me. Am I being reasonable? What would you do? [more inside]

How do you know if it's worth pursuing?

I am now in a living situation where I live with a bunch of friends. I was always close friends with one of the girls (for about a year) and one night we cuddled. It led to some more cuddling for a few nights but it bothered me. Not because I didn't like it but because I'm the type that wants things to be clear. I've always been in the mindset that if I like a girl, I will pursue her and make it clear to her. Leaving things unclear can lead to messy relationships/breakups/fights and hurt feelings in the end.

Do I have bugs? How can I tell? What should I do?

Something is biting me. I think it might be bedbugs. But last time I thought I had bedbugs it turned out to be something else entirely. So, how can I figure out for sure what it is? What precautions should I take? And, perhaps more importantly, how do I notify my roommates in a timely fashion without unnecessarily freaking them out if it turns out to be a non-problem?
