2BR, 1BA, w/d, EIK, daily PDA, $600

Help a roomie out: “About six months ago, I began renting from a good friend who owns a home. It’s a smaller home so there’s only one central location where everyone can hang out. My friend’s girlfriend stays and sleeps there five days a week (it wasn’t like this before I moved in). She’s a great a girl and helps a lot around the house with chores and projects, but every single night they sit on the couch in the main living room and they can’t keep their hands off each other. It’s pretty excessive PDA. Not only does this make me feel uncomfortable but I constantly feel like the fifth wheel in my own place. I want to say something but I’m not sure if it’s my place to. It’s his house and he’s in love with his girlfriend, but I didn’t sign up to pay $600 a month to be a third roommate to a live-in couple. Is there any solution?”
