8. The Perfect One
Do they exist? Probably not — but if you find someone that comes close, don't let them go. You may find that you're meant to live alone because you are the perfect roommate. For economic reasons, though, it will typically be wiser to have at least one or two roomies. Usually, when you and your roommates have different schedules and friend circles, it's pretty easy to get along. Do your dishes and take out the trash. Don't leave your laundry in the washing machine for lengthy amounts of time and always be considerate when leaving early or coming home late and you'll be sure to avoid any problems.
