I had a friend trick me into a Mexican tradition of shoving my face in my birthday cake & telling my guy friends they had to lick it off. Yes it's a weird creepy feeling.

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.

If you want to be technical, yes, but you don't hear many "apartmentmates" around. Calling the person who shares your living space a roommate is much more convenient.

#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.

Thanks for explaining the intricacies of the English language, #63. Now I can justify reading FML on a Monday morning as 'professional development' to my boss (that's the tax authority, since I'm self-employed).

#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.

Pssshhh. I'd sleep wherever I wanted to in my own place. If someone woke me up licking my face, well then be prepared to wake up with me pissing on yours. Lol

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.
