Things to Watch out for When Choosing a Roommate Having a roommate can either make your life better or it could actually make it a nightmare. So, you really need to choose your roommate more carefully. Even a friend can turn out to be an unsuitable roommate. So, before you let anyone live with you, you should spend time to get to know the person. By taking time to talk to the person, you will know if the person swears a lot to the point that it becomes so irritating. It's also not nice to live with a person who foulmouths too.   Bad hygiene is also just as annoying. Just imagine walking into the bathroom and it stinks because your roommate did not flush. Toilet paper is also scattered on the floor. How about finding dirty laundry around the living room area?   A part of the joys of sharing an apartment with someone is having someone to talk to. But if your roommate begins to want to know everything about you and worse, all your secrets get broadcasted all the time that would also not be good. That is why you really need to find a roommate who knows how to share and keep secrets. At the same, you also need to find someone who knows when to give you some privacy. This way your personality and moods will never clash. You will have a good relationship with him or her always.
