How do I tell a friend I don’t want to live with her next year?

So my friends and I are all thinking about getting a 4 bedroom apartment next year. Three of us have decided we don’t want to share a place with one of the girls because she can be a little annoying and messy at times. We still want to maintain a friendship with her, but we just don’t know how to tell her we don’t... show more So my friends and I are all thinking about getting a 4 bedroom apartment next year. Three of us have decided we don’t want to share a place with one of the girls because she can be a little annoying and messy at times. We still want to maintain a friendship with her, but we just don’t know how to tell her we don’t want to live with her. She is someone who gets angry pretty easily and takes everything personal (which is another reason we don’t feel comfortable living with her). The three of us have decided that we are okay with living in the same complex, just not sharing the same apartment. How do we break the news to her, without sounding mean? Thanks.
