Is it important to choose roommates with whom I want to party?

Compatibilty Rules

When it comes to searching for roommates, you may think it imperative to choose roommates you like. While liking your roommates is a plus, it is not necessary for a comfortable roommate arrangement. Instead, look for roommates with whom you are compatible.

There is a vast difference between getting along with someone and being able to live with them. You can love partying with a friend, yet hate the way she leaves her dirty clothes on the kitchen table. Likewise, you may want to hang out with your buddy, but not want to deal with his disgusting bathroom habits. Choosing roomates based on compatibility, rather than liability can ensure your living arrangement is and remains comfortable.
