I'm getting a roommate. Have any advice?
It's been, like, 25 years since I've had a roommate because raising my son (22) doesn't count. I had one live-in bf for 2 years in all that time, and now finances force me to have a friend move in short term, 3 to 6 months we agreed. I'm in a pretty nice 2 bedroom apt with a view and lots of privacy, but it's a small apt.
Do you have any experiences you can share on what we should talk about up front? I'd really appreciate it. I'm really
not looking forward to this but at the same time I'm really
grateful she's here to help me with the rent. My work has slowed down and she just got laid off. She's a lawyer & getting decent unemployment but still.... she's really messy..... Plus she talks a lot and is kind of pushy, but all that doesn't matter
I'm pushy too, but I want to make this 3-6 mos as comfortable and fair as possible.
What should we talk about up front? I'm not sure how to approach buying tp and coffee filters because I don't usually shop in bulk. Maybe I should.... Thanks for any advice. ANd wish me luck.
