Is it normal to be upset that your neighbors are having sex?

I have two roommates. They're both pretty chill guys (usually).

One of them gets really upset whenever he hears our upstairs neighbors having sex. He gets REALLY upset. They're not that loud to be honest. Just some squeecking can be heard. It's usually only about 5 minutes before all is quiet. Myself and my other roommate don't mind.

The other roommate gets super pissed though. He starts slamming shit really loudly and shouting when it happens. Furthermore he gets pissed at us because we're not upset about it. None of us are getting laid. It's been about a year and a half since either the roommate that gets angry got laid, and about the same amount of time for myself as well. I don't think the other roommate has ever done anything with a woman. According to the angry roommate though, it's natural for animals to get upset when they know someone else is getting laid and they're not. He says we should be just as pissed as he is.

But I'm not. I don't care. Frankly, it's starting to become an issue between the three of us. The upstairs neighbors had a 30 minute session this afternoon, and the environment in our apartment has been absolutely toxic ever since.

No, that's weird as fuck.
If I knew one of my roommates was getting laid, I'd be happy for them. Maybe give them a high-five as they left their room?

I guess it's normal to be jealous of other people having sex if you're not. Go get laid, man, you'll feel better.

I've only ever received cake from my roommates when I copulate with a female.

That guy has got to get his shit together. It's not normal. What the hell does he expect, them not to have sex? Hell, in college, my roommates had sex while the other roommates were in the room..

What would happen if you or the other guy got laid? Like, would he freak out?

A year and half? Fuck I can't even imagine going that long without sex. Tell your room mate to quit bitching and go out and get laid.

Oh memories of college. I didn't get laid much back then either. Now I don't think there's a 1.5 year period that I haven't gotten laid since I lost my virginity.

Both behaviors are normal. Make sure you give each other room to take care of business. Maybe that's his problem. Do you have dorms with shared rooms? Those are the worst. Long showers are a must.

I'd be worried about him putting laxatives in your food when you start being sexually active again.

Oh my god...lol.

Tell him this: if he was getting laid, would he want other people to be upset? Though with how insane he sounds he might just say yes.

If he's masturbating regularly and he's acting like a angry maniac when this happens...yeah, new roomate time. That's some mental instability.

We don't live in dorms. We live in an apartment. Myself and the angry roommate are both college graduates.

I worry about him to be honest. He is convinced he is ugly (even though he's not). He just got laser eye surgery and is now talking about getting plastic surgery. He has a pretty high paying job now too (80k a year). All he talks about is "getting his revenge" on women and shit.

He's a serial killer in the making. For real.

Yeah.. It was funny at the time though. We were all pretty relaxed.. GF sleeping over was no big deal, and the few times they .. got busy... Well, we'd just gossip about it at breakfast the next day.

I think its time to get rid of your roommate. Before he decides he likes your skin better than his.

That's a bit difficult, because he's the majority rent payer. We have a 3 tier system in place. He pays half because he has the dedicated parking space and the master bedroom. The other roommate pays about 30% since he has the other bedroom. I pay 20% since I have the living room.

Plus he's also my best friend of 10 years.

Hahaha did he get out of a long relationship recently? Sounds kinda like a buddy of mine who was with his girl for 8 years. Ever since they broke up he has become incredibly insecure and emotional, everyone thinks he's gay now.

He has only had one relationship, and it's the one that ended a year and a half ago. It was a very serious relationship, and it ended on her cheating on him by using his money to fly to canada and hook up with a dude she met online. He's still pretty messed up about it.

10 years sounds like plenty long enough for you two to sit down, talk seriously, and have him listen.

Tell your roommate he's being ridiculous, and to grow the fuck up.

Seriously, in those exact words. Grow. The. Fuck. Up.

The Fuck Up.

All the WAY up.

Like, I wish I could give you some mature, sage advice here...but it's really this simple. Your roommate is really being petty enough to warrant this type of response.


EDIT: Wait, just saw this:

I worry about him to be honest. He is convinced he is ugly (even though he's not). He just got laser eye surgery and is now talking about getting plastic surgery. He has a pretty high paying job now too (80k a year). All he talks about is "getting his revenge" on women and shit.

Nix what I said earlier. My new advice is this:

Move out.

Move the FUCK out.

Move ALL THE WAY out.

Because your roommate sounds dangerous.

Wow. The story unfolds even more. That's a tough situation, but honestly the guy sounds like he needs therapy. Like very soon....like now.

What the hell. This guy does not sound like he should be around women. Or anyone, it seems.

I thought this thread was going to be about that like, second long feeling of: "Man, someone's having sex? I wanna be having sex! :(" but your roommate is something else. Yeah, seriously talk to him about it.
