I must say, I have had my share of roommate drama. My freshman year I lived in a dorm with 5 other girls, and my junior year (due to some emergency circumstances, aka a bad breakup) I ended up in a house with 8 other roommates (technically 9, if you count the practically-living-there boyfriend of one of the girls). And trust me, when there’s 9 or 10 people living in a house? You better learn how to deal with drama real quick, or there’s no way you’re ever going to make it out alive.
So for your convenience, I have narrowed down roommate drama to five easy-to-recognize categories, and have chosen two options for dealing with the drama: either the high road or the low road.
The truth is, apartment hunting with potential roommates is a fine art, and there are definitely some things you learn along the way that would’ve been incredibly useful if you had known beforehand. Be sure to have a maximum rent before hand, stick to your list, agree on a minimum list of requirements, and constantly re-evaluate what you are looking for and you should be ok.
