Some background information: I’m international and I currently live with two American humans (let’s call them A & B - I’ve known A for a while, but I don’t know B very well; they’re friends.) in the U.S. I’m still kind of new to the area and not sure how some of the things work in this culture.
Basically I have to move out as soon as possible because of disagreements over cleanliness, and I don’t enjoy cleaning up after people. (We’ve talked about that, I’ve done my research, I now believe people won’t actually change their living habits). The disagreements have escalated but that’s not really related to this question.
I’m introverted, and I get anxious when I picture telling them I’m moving out (we never hang out these days) especially when I’m feeling more and more alone in this living situation. Also as you can imagine my non-native English doesn’t help much in this; my English gets worse when I get nervous, which in turn makes me more nervous.
I read somewhere that Writing a Note is impolite here in the US (if I take the time to write someone a letter explaining this situation, in my culture, that seems respectful...) so this isn’t an option for me.
So I’m thinking if it’s appropriate for me to talk to them separately. Our work schedules are very different anyways and it’s actually easier to meet with one at a time. Plus I’m way better at a one-on-one conversation (I don’t feel judged, and I can look the person in the eye).
How can I tell my two roommates separately that I’m moving out?
Edit: thank you everyone for kindly offering suggestions. I have talked to them and things eventually worked out. I find the answer extremely helpful in that it helps me come up with an opening line which I’ve been struggling with. Thanks again.
