Roommate Rules 101
Get it right the first time
#1 Address things when they're little.
Don't let things get out of hand or the resentment will take over...which can lead to conflict.
#2 Be selfless
If you see something needs to be done, do it for the sake of the living area.
#3 Respect Your Roomie
Don't borrow things without asking and respect their space.
#4 Lock the door and windows.
The last thing you need is to have your roommate's things stolen because you left the door unlocked
#5 Be friendly, without expecting to be best friends
You might not be best friends, but you can live in a friendly environment.
