I think the caveat on this is don't be a boring fucker, unless you're attractive, in which case you can be more boring than watching paint dry whilst The Archers plays in the background, and you'll be fine.
I had a housemate who literally knew nothing about what was going on in the world, had zero interests outside of looking good and Manchester United Football Club, lived in a completely spartan room, and ate the same meal three times a day (plain chicken and rice; do not get me started on the toilet situation).
Trying to have a conversation with him was about as engaging as having a conversation with TV static, and he was so completely inept at anything manual it was scary. I once had to explain to him over the phone how to open a thumb-latch gate, and another time he drove 100 miles on a rapidly deflating tyre because he didn't know how to change a wheel, didn't have a pump, and didn't even consider how that might be dangerous. He didn't even know his car HAD a spare wheel, much less how to change it.
All this said, he was attractive. He looked a bit like Zayn out of One Direction, and his Tinder was constantly going off. Every time we were out he was fighting off girls left, right, and centre. At that point, all this shit about being interesting and having a personality went out of the window. It only applies if you aren't attractive.
Now, I'm not saying that's only true one way round, but still.
