As you search for the perfect roommate, don't stress the perfection too much.
Don't keep good candidates on hold, simply because you think can find someone who meets your idea of a perfect roommate. Good candidates may get tired of waiting and go elsewhere, leaving you in a lurch when the perfect roommate fails to appear. Instead of expecting perfection, make a list of qualities you feel are absolutely necessary in a roommate. Once you find someone with most of these qualities and good references, snap him or her up.
