Roommates Wanted: Finding a Good One

Roommates Wanted: Finding a Good One

Do you remember that first taste of adult home life? Maybe it was your college dorm, or maybe your first job in a new place. Either way, at some point, most of us have had the burdensome task of finding a roommate. Back in the day, we used to make fliers with the rip-off phone number tabs and staple them all over town, or canvas the newspapers. These days? Craigslist, Roommates.com, and yes, even Myspace. And while some of us prefer the safety net of rooming with friends of friends, it seems as though the current trend is to find someone totally new and outside of our network. And while there are pros and cons for either situation, we'd like to know what kind of experiences--good or bad--that you've had with living with acquaintances, friends, co-workers, or perfect strangers.
