Should you get a Roommate?

should you get a Roommate2

Roommates. Can’t live with them. Can’t live without them. There are many pros and cons to getting a roommate. Let’s take a look at just a few:


  • Save money! In many instances it is definitely cheaper to split rent for a two bedroom than it is to pay for a one bedroom on your own.
  • Divide up the chores! Who wants to have to clean an apartment all by themselves? Having a roommate helps because you can split up the work.
  • You won’t be lonely! It’s nice having someone else in the house to hang out with.


  • Lack of privacy! Living with someone else definitely means you can’t wander around the house in your underwear.
  • Less quiet! People make noises, some louder than others, and you’d have to get used to the weird noises your roommate might make.
  • They could be messy! While a roommate will help you clean, they will also help you make a mess and you’ll have to be okay with other people’s messes.

So, now that you’ve read them do you know if you are you ready to live with a roommate?
