No, roommate implies that they share the same room, whereas the others imply that they share the same residence, and maybe the same room but not necessarily. Roommate is to suite mate as square is to rectangle: all squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares.
#17, haven't had a lot of roommates, eh? Just kidding. Just poking fun. Anyway... Technically you may be correct, but you aren't factoring in lingo. Roommate means you live with someone in a room, apartment, house, etc. in the US or Canada. Dorm mate could be used if you're in a dorm but it's optional. It's a flatmate in Europe. This is just usually. I would never say flatmate in Canada.
#44, OP didn't say, friend joking licked me, OP said creepy new roommate. Creepy as in not joking and new as in don't know very well. Add these two things together and yeah, a restraining order might, might be in order. It could be that the new roommate has an odd personality that's hard to understand. But this could also lead to much crazier and more dangerous things. Its an option OP will have to look depending on the situation, there are some messed up people out there.
Were they drunk? Or on drugs? Maybe both? Lock the doors next time Hun...
I think you should cheek if they're asleep before you sleep. .... anyone?
It's possible... I once knew a girl in elementary school that was convinced she was half cat. Although, again, she was in elementary school... I think most people would outgrow a belief like that the same way young children outgrow their belief in their imaginary friends as they mature.
