    it is a crap shoot. but to get head start it should be someone you know and like/love and respect and know well...then it is very workable. no surpirses that way.

    A lot of older posts are worth being revived!
    If we're ever in a situation where I am "the voice of reason", then we are in a very, very bad situation.

    I would never want to take in a roommate but I might do it rather than have to live with one of my kids. I wouldn't want to inflict myself upon them and their mates.

    I took in two roommates (separately) when I first moved into my home. To help me with expenses. Both were less than pleasant experiences. The first lady was, well, odd. rarely left her room, even brought her food in there to eat. She often gave me less than our agreed upon (in writing) rent. We worked at the same place, and often she spread hateful and untrue rumors about me. It is not like we were kids. I was in my early 40s, she was a few years older. I kicked her out.
    The second lady was not so bad, but our personalities clashed. Not in a bad way, but enough that we simply did not get along. She moved out on her own.

    I am sure I would never do it again, say if something happened to my husband, but I would find better ways to vet the people.

    I hate to mention the obvious- roommates get older. One minor stroke can be devastating. One becomes the care taker of the other. What if one feels able to care for himself, but can't? I thought it would be nice to have a roomie. Ya know- somebody besides a cat. But before I could do anything. I found myself on the floor after a blackout. It took a minute to go from getting a possible roomie to being in a home.

    How does one become responsible to become a caretaker for a tenant in your house? Is that for real legally?
