Roommate interest and coordination thread

This thread is for the dis­cus­sion of op­tions for peo­ple in­ter­ested in chang­ing their liv­ing en­vi­ron­ments some time in the next year or so. It’s a place to:

  • Share your situ­a­tion to get an out­side view

  • Get on the radar of po­ten­tial roommates

  • Dis­cuss ex­ist­ing com­mu­ni­ties or places that may be a good fit

  • De­scribe what you’re look­ing for in a liv­ing environment

  • Post your pro­ce­dure for de­cid­ing where to live

  • Co­or­di­nate with oth­ers to find com­pat­i­ble roommates

  • Dis­cuss which fac­tors are rele­vant to de­cid­ing where to live

  • Post re­sources or data rele­vant to de­cid­ing where to live

Whether you’re grad­u­at­ing from col­lege, mov­ing for a new job, or look­ing to fur­ther op­ti­mize your liv­ing en­vi­ron­ment for other rea­sons, talk­ing with oth­ers can help you iden­tify op­tions, catch in­ac­cu­rate be­liefs or poor rea­son­ing, meet po­ten­tial room­mates, and more. Thanks to ev­ery­one who con­tributes!

(This thread has been on my mind for a while. Read­ing this re­cent room­mate-seek­ing post in­spired me ac­tu­ally write and post it. I’ll post my own situ­a­tion in the com­ments be­low.)

To dis­cuss the con­cept of this thread (rather than par­ti­ci­pat­ing in the thread’s in­tended dis­cus­sion), please re­ply to this com­ment. Credit goes to the open trans­ac­tions thread and group ra­tio­nal­ity di­ary for some of the style and word­ing of this post.
