Find the Right Roommate by Choosing Compatibility Over Likeability

By

When it comes to finding the right roommate, keep in mind that compatibility is more important than likeability. Good friends don't always translate into good roommates, and you may in fact know people who have rented an apartment with their best friend only to have a surprising falling out not long into their lease term.

Rooming with a friend can prove to be a positive experience, but only if you first check to make sure you're compatible. If you let your eagerness get the better of you and avoid taking this step, you'll risk losing both a roommate and a friend.
