These 4 Websites and Apps Make Finding a Roommate Stress-Free
Selecting a college roommate was a piece of cake, but in the real world, finding someone to live with gets a lot trickier. Outside of a university setting, locating a legitimate, sane, and actually cool roommate is daunting, whether you’re brand-new to a city or have been there for ages. As if moving isn’t stressful enough to begin with! Luckily, these four apps and websites put thousands of future froomies at your fingertips so you can find a stress-free living sitch for your first (or tenth!) apartment post-graduation, and regardless of your budget.
This website keeps it real perhaps more so than any other site or app. It boasts the fact that “actual humans” review each roommate profile before it is made public, and you can tell this group has a sense of humor too. With surprisingly frank multiple-choice questions about religious views, political affiliations, and hookup habits, each resulting profile is comprehensive and personal, which ultimately makes it easier to find a roomie that’s a fit for you. After you fill out the lengthy but worth-it questionnaire on the website, your interactions with potential roommates will be exclusively over email, rather than through the site directly, as any matches are forwarded to your email address.
