Under 1 roof: How to pick your roommate

Roommate Finder 2

It’s traumatic enough to decide if you want to even attempt to live with someone, but finding a person who fits your personality may be seemingly impossible. Join web communities like www.craigslist.org and www.facebook.com to simplify this process. Here are some tips to guide you through whom to share your living space with:

1. Find someone with a schedule that complements your own.
You don’t want someone that’s going to be at home at the exact same times you’re home. Give yourself some breathing room.


2. Find someone who can bring ‘added bonuses’ to the living arrangement.
In other words, perks. Find a person who has benefits that they can bring to the table, i.e. restaurant connections, discounts on home goods, etc.

3. Find someone who has a life that doesn’t revolve around the house.
It’s a plus to know that you will both be out and about, that way there’s less room to get in each other’s way.


4. Know who you’re dealing with.
This is sometimes easier said than done, but always try to pair up with a person whose habits you’re somewhat familiar with, and vice-versa. The only thing worse than searching for a roommate is losing one after two months when you discover you can’t stand each other.
