What has been your experience with housemates or roommates as an adult?
Looks like a friend whom I had offered a room to while she house hunts will be taking me up on the offer. She will probably be living here for three to six months. I am somewhat bemused but interested in trying it out. Plan to charge her some money and talk about expectations regarding privacy, meals, etc. One thing is that we eat very differently so will probably not share many suppers. I do plan to see if she is willing to dog sit while I travel. Any warnings or advice to share?
