Things to Consider When Choosing the Right Roommate
A roommate can help you with the bills and the chores. But with the wrong roommate, he or she can also ruin your life and disposition. That is why you need to be careful in taking in a roommate. The first step is to do an interview. Since you most likely want someone to split the rent and bills with, you can try to find out if the potential roommate is capable of paying the rent. To know this you can talk about his or her job and financial status. You can then talk about his lifestyle. You would want to know whether he is a morning or night person. If you work at night and the other person works at daytime, you might be concerned about being disturbed in the morning while he moves around. You have to know whether he has a habit of bringing friends over and partying. Of course, you would have to discuss how you are going to split the bills as well. Then you can discuss how you are going to divide the chores. After all, you would not want your house to be so messy. All in all, you have to know as much about the person before you take him or her into your home. When you end with a good roommate, life would be easier for you. But with the wrong choice of roommate, life would even be more difficult.
