There are many positive reasons for finding a roommate. The most important reason is sharing expenses. With the roommate you might be able to move into a much bigger apartment or even a house. Having a roommate is also a big help especially if you have pets.

There’s also the loneliness factor to consider. If you’re the type of person that likes being around other people, then having a roommate will mean you constantly will have company.
