Should I tell my new roommate that I want a business-only relationship ?

Southern Exposure

Life experiences can differ widely according to such things as age, gender, profession, and even location. Individuals living in northern locations may feel a bit like fish out of water in Southern states.

Indicate, in advance, your level of willingness to help your roommate gain familiarity with your city or town. If you'd like a strictly business relationship with little or no socializing, let potential roommates know. If you're hoping to gain a friend as well as a roommate, be clear about that as well. Starting out with honesty and full disclosure of your wishes is one of the best ways to ensure a satisfactory roommate situation.
