I work in environmental and social sustainability. I'm from San Francisco, CA.
Melanie was nice enough but there was an air of high maintenance and
entitlement. She was flexible with our having to modify our meet up arrangements, which on the one hand was cool but given the fact that I had to coordinate with guests checking out that day I was left feeling like I had to go above and beyond to accommodate her. I left keys at the hotel she was checking out of and was in constant contact with her. My issue really is that she checked out of a luxury hotel, and into my modest apartment which was a vast contrast. I think she over did it with "the apartment was filthy" comments. I"m almost OCD when it comes to the condition of my places. I admit that I hadn't finished painting the bathroom and that there were a couple of minor things to be done, but the place is hardly dirty. I'm upfront about the building being not that great, I don't include a working elevator in my profile so I feel like that shouldn't have been a big deal.
LOVED having Melanie! So, so sweet! Hope she comes back....
