I"m currently sitting in a hotel in NYC after a really terrible experience. I found a room for rent on Craigslist in an apartment in the Central Park South area of NYC one month ago as I will be commencing my 6 month internship tomorrow. An older couple wrote me that they have a spare room in their apartment and we wrote each other various emails and they sounded very nice and credible. When I arrived five days ago on Wednesday night the man picked me up from the airport and told me that the woman could unfortunately not make it. When we arrived in the apartment he showed me around and I discovered that it was only a tiny (!) 1 bedroom apartment and that he was living on a blow up mattress in the living room. Furthermore, when I asked where the woman is he explained to me that she was only going to be there on the weekend. This all seemed odd but I was willing to give it a try. The man then invited me for a welcome drink and we went to a local bar. In the bar he started telling me how beautyful he found me the whole time (!) and that he had chosen me because of my picture .He started taking my hand and continued to do so even though I constantly pulled away. I felt so bad because I was completely jetlagged (I had just arrived fom Australia) and was completely exhausted. This situation was so uncomfortible and awful I did not know what to do.He then went on to tell me that he wants small blond and blue eyed girls from Vienna (which is EXACTLY me) and not his fat girlfriend . It was so groce. A woman that was also sitting at the bar even came up to me as she must have noticed that I was extremely uncomfortible and asked me if I am alright and that I am hopefully not going home with him. I was shocked as I noticed that I was not the only person feeling the ackwardness of this situation. We went home and he costantly tried to put his hand on my back and touched my arm-it was so disgusting. When we got home I just quickly went into my room and called my fiance to tell him what happened. He was extremely concerned, too. The next day I just stayed in my room or quickly snuck off outside because the man was in the apartment the WHOLE day, looking at me every single time I went to the toilet or left the room as you could see my door from the loungeroom. On Friday his girfriend came (thank GOD!) and she asked me to come for a drink with them so I thought I would give this a try. I only sat next to her and found out that she was a recovering widow and she said, about 50 times, that "he's such a joker" which is , I guess, how she deals with his remarks. I then found out that he only ever lives with females and people that only temporarily move to NYC. This all started to feel even more odd. We then went home and, about 15 min after I went to my room, they started having REALLY loud sex- but I only heard him. It was disgusting. I heard EVERYTHING you could possibly hear- it got so bad that I had to put my fingers into my ears because I could not stand it anymore.After everything that had happened I felt so disgusted and started crying and called my fiance as well as my parents. My fiance urged me to move out, but it was Saturday so I could not look for new apartments. I started searching the net and competely avoided them both the whole day. The next night the same really loud (only him again) sex took place again so I called my fiance and he could hear the guy having sex while I was talking to him on the phone. I got the feeling that this guy relly wanted me to hear it and started to be really scared of being alone with him again. I packed my things, wrote them a note explaining that the apartment was not as described and that I did not know only he was going to be living there (that was NEVER mentioned-I kept all the emails) and that I though they woukd have an own bedroom instead of him living on the loungeroom floor (that was never mentioned either!). So I asked the to pay the remaining rent of the month as well as the bond back into my account and left. I am still shacken up by this awful situation as I am living in a hotel now and have to begin work tomorrow- honestly, I am quite devostated. I then received an email from him today stating that he is keeping the September rent and that he will charge me and take it out of my bond until somebody else moves in, describing me as being "unprofessional" for leaving. I really don't know what to do but I was really scared of being alone with this guy again and really felt like I had to go.However, I also really need that money to find and pay a new place. I am so devostated and don't know what to do.
