Okay, so you need a roommate. More than likely it's a financial decision: sharing
expenses, especially housing, can make all the difference to a budget. And
sometimes you just have no choice. If you are a college student and you want to
live in one of the dorms, in many cases the only choice you have is to have a
roommate or possibly more than one. So there are definitely times when the
ability to make a roommate situation work well can be important if not essential.
