    Subject: Room in apartment wanted by Swedish Security Officer

    I saw your ad. at and I am very interested!
    I am a 26 year old guy from Sweden who will start working as a Security Officer for the United Nations this August.
    I will send you any information you need if you think I will be suitable to rent a room in your apartment.
    Sending you a picture of myself from my mission as a UN Soldier in Liberia last year.
    Take care!
    Regards // The Swedish Security Officer

    Wow. The pictures he included? This guy was HOT. Tan, buff and in uniform (or half of one in one of the pictures). Damn. I sent him the follow up email, hoping this was another "Rower" situation.

    Hello Finy!
    I´ll answer your questions inside your email to make it easier for me.

    >Name: The Swedish Security Officer
    >Where do you currently live (neighborhood is fine ) : A small city in Sweden
    >Do you live with roommates, parents, or on your own? : Temporarily at my mothers place.
    >What about this arrangement appealed to you? : Cheap rent and an opportunity to get to know a proffessional attractive woman in New York. If I didnt like it I could always move so I felt there was nothing to loose.
    >Can you actually cook and clean? : Of course.
    >If the potential roommate had been unattractive would you have still
    >agreed to the arrangement? : yes, as long as I could have my privacy when I wanted.
    >Did you make any assumptions about the poster's identity? : I felt it had to be one of two choices, either what was said, an attractive woman OR what it in fact was, a fake.. But again, I had nothing to lose.
    >If you had moved into the apartment do you think you would have told
    >your friends/family about the arrangement? : Yes.
    >Any other comments? : Where can I find an arrangement like this for
    >real!?!? :)
    Awww. He was sweet and not at all creepy, which was one of the biggest shocks I got from this little experiment. How many normal guys were responding!
