My ad for a Roommate on Craigslist.
Thoughts?
Althought most likely I will try roommates.com as well

"

I am a 25 year old female student looking for a roommate, preferably female, to share a 2 bedroom apartment in xxx xxxxx.

The apartment is a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom, all utilities except electric included. Air conditioned wall units in each bedroom. Living room and dining room are nice sized and kitchen as well. There is a balcony off the living room. Hardwood floors. No pets currently but I will accept a dog, no cats please.

I am looking for someone fun, nice, quiet, who likes to relax, light drinker, who is a professional or student. I want someone responsible who I can get along with well. I am not looking for someone to come in, out, be super weird in their bedroom and creep me out.

I love shows like Top Model, One Tree Hill, The Hills, Law and Order SVU, The Office, etc. I like learning to cook, drinking wine, and laughing no stop. Movies are great too. I want someone who I can feel really comfortable with and enjoy living with.

If you think this is you, great!! This is a nice apartment, nice neighborhood, near xxxx xxxx. There are a lot of closets and a laundry room in the building with nice new washer and dryers. "

Sounds like a good ad. You're honest and include a lot of information, that's the most important thing so that there's no miscommunication and you can pre-screen people.

I think it's good-- it gives people a clear picture of what you like to do and what you're looking for in a roommate. Good luck!

Good luck with the search. In all seriousness, if you don't nab someone from Craigslist, I am searching for a roommate.

This cracks me up!! I love that you have no problem stating what most people would sugar coat!!

BTW--If I lived in your area, I would so be your roommate!!
