    25, Male, No special diet, Working.

    Current flatmate is a new arrival in New Zealand, working full time in a technical role. He is friendly and also respectful of others, and he and I agree that this is the best kind of flatmate. He is kind and chilled. He is a rugby fan, and still deciding who to support in the Rugby World Cup in Japan this year - torn between NZ and his country of origin which is also in the tournament.
