stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full

THEY DISCRIMINATE AGAINST GAY PEOPLE

THEY DISCRIMINATE AGAINST GAY PEOPLE AND ARE BIGOTS!!!

THEY CLOSED DOWN MY ACCOUNT BECAUSE I POSTED I WANTED A GAY MALE ROOMMATE W/BENEFITS AND A STRAIGHT IDIOT WANTED TO DO ANYTHING TO GET THE ROOM AND I WOULD NOT GO FOR IT.DON'T USE SPARE ROOM. THEY SAID I CAN'T RENT MY LIVINGROOM OR SOFA-BED AS RENTABLE, WHICH THEY ADMITTED THEY HAVE NO POLICEY AGAINST IT. THAY ALSO SAID I USED INAPPROPRIATE CONTENT WE ARE ALL ADULTS NOT CHILDREN. IF STRAIGHT PEOPLE (MALE) CAN'T READ NOT MY PROBLEM.AND THE LAST THIS I KNOW CUDDLEING WAS NOT A SEXUAL INTENT OR NAKEDNESS IS ILLEGAL IN YOUR OWN APARTMENT. THEY REPLIED WITH MORE BS AND SHOWED HOW THEY ARE MORE PREJUDICE THEN EVER AGAINST OPENLY GAY PEOPLE WHO ARE OPEN AND HONEST ABOUT WHAT THEY WANT. NEVER ONCE DID I SAY I WANTED TO HAVE SEXUUAL INTERCOURSE LIKE I SAID EARLIER CUDDLING AND NAKEDNESS IS NOT ILLEGAL AND WHEN STATED UP FRONT NOT A SURPRISE TO ANYONE GOING TO MAKE CONTACT TO ME FOR THE ROOM. CAN YOU UNDERSTAND THAT SPAREROOM/FLATSHARE

AND SINCE WHEN AS YOU STATED HAVING SEX IS CUDDLING OR NAKEDNESS IS CONSIDERED HAVING SEX IN YOUR STAIGHT SICK MINDS THINK GAY PEOPLE WHATEVER THEY DO IS SEXUAL.!!! I GUESS WHEN TWO MEN KISS IT LEADS TO *** EACH OTHER

AND YOU WOULDN'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT TRUTH IN ADVERTISING "LGBT FRIENDLY " AS IN YOUR WEBSITE LOL

Hi John

We don't discriminate against anyone. We haven't closed your account because of your sexuality - we've closed your account because you were looking for someone to sleep on a sofa in your living room, be open/willing to have a sexual relationship with you and for them to pay you monthly for that arrangement.

You mention there was no sexual intent but the information on your account suggests otherwise. That's not OK and it's a breach of the terms of use you agreed to when registering your account. To put it simply, SpareRoom is not a dating website - if that's what you're looking for there are other apps/websites for that.

Having sex (or 'naked cuddles' as you appear to suggest in your review) with your landlord should never be a condition of securing a room or finding somewhere to live. Our users are looking for homes where they can feel safe and secure - some of our users may be vulnerable or in a difficult situation and in need of a roof over their head. Requiring an arrangement that includes someone being open to a sexual relationship just to find a home isn't OK.

We have a duty of care to users and we're proud to say that anyone acting inappropriately on our website will be removed. This policy will not change. If this is the type of arrangement you are looking for, you'll need to go somewhere else to find it.

We have now communicated to you on several occasions that the decision is final and we would recommend that you look to use other platforms.
