    Its not easy to find the right person to share with.
    Some are untidy, some late night party animals. And
    then there are sOme that are great and easy to live with
    it’s just easier to find the wrong people than the right people..

    it is good to share with someone so we can meet new people and make them friends and if some is sharing so anyone can get mental support.we can kill our time to talk them.and in that way we can save the their are lots of benefits .

    I need a room isn’t a very good description of your needs and who you are Make finding share home easy and tell the host a bit about you. Where you live or work makes it to reply to someone who really can live in an area.
    Doesn’t matter what your outlook on life is from a party animal to a bookish student. There will be a perfect place.
    Be honest if you don’t like a place and tell the owner why. It might be an easy fix that accommodates your needs

    i am actually a homestay place to stay. We never take a bond or ask for money up front. We are in Melbourne and have been doing it for 11 years. We have had the best people stay with us and most dont want to leave. We have a gorgeous 100 yr old renovated home in Melbourne and my husband loves the footy and gets everyone to go to at least 1 game and we also have a boat so he tries to get them out fishing. Sometimes homestay or living with people this way is better than sharing with strangers. The only rule we have is …if you meet someone go to their home…otherwise they come and go as they like. It has worked really well and we have had NO problems in all this time. Just thought you may like an opinion from a different avenue.

    I have a room for rent and have quite a few flatmates over the years. All have been fabulous people. I suppose the biggest problem I see is that when people say they have busy lives, that is very subjective, as busy to me means rarely at home whereas busy to others means they work and then spend the rest of time at home! I’m amazed that young people in their 20’s that I have had as flatmates don’t do more with their lives e.g play sport, go to the beach, go out with friends, go to the library etc.You only live once so get out there and have lot’s of fun without electronic equipment!And always use a condom if you’re having random sex!

    – When seeking a good flatmate, find out if they like the same food choices, music, tv shows, sports, social scenes and lifestyles…. If they are compatable you are likely to have a good relationship.

    – You could check them up on facebook or myspace (most people have one) before yousay yes to move in. It gives you a glipse of their real personality, not just the one they are trying to impress you with.

    – When moving into an existing furnished flat. Be fair and make space so they can add their personal effects so they feel like its their home too.

    – Be really clear about house rules. start as you mean to carry on.
