Unbearably creepy Gumtree roomshare of the day

What’s with all the bed sharing?

WHO COULD FORGET the weird Daft ad last week, advertising for a woman to share her ‘bed and body and life experience’.

Errr, we looked elsewhere.

Well, Gumtree has its fair share of creeps too, apparently.

This ad, advertising a free roomshare in Central London sounds too good to be true, and it is. It was taken down in a flash, but it’s too late for us.


The ad reads:

1 bed flat, roomshare available for intelligent, sensible, reliable, honest and trustworthy lady in Central London flat with kind, considerate, gentle and caring professional 27 year old male. Would suit a student but any appropriate lady in need of accommodation should apply.No rent would be expected but occasional personal services (always mutually agreed, always for mutual pleasure) would be required in lieu of rent. I am being honest about this so that applicants are fully aware.

Well, thanks for this honesty.


We’ll keep looking.
