I am originally from Westchester, NY. Although it is pretty close to the city, it is still a relatively long commute to work everyday. I work in the publishing industry as an assistant production editor. In my free time I love to read and watch TV, and I occasionally like to go out and explore new areas, take an interesting class, or try a new restaurant/bar. I do like to keep to myself often, and I tend to be somewhat of a homebody, but I’d love to have a roommate I can relax on the couch with, have a glass of wine, and watch TV or just catch up.
#Myroommateperk is that I get free books at work, so that’s a total bonus if you’re a bookworm like me! Also, I think the biggest perk about living with me is that I totally respect privacy, and completely understand what it means to need time alone. With that being said, a kind and friendly roommate is always welcome to knock on my door if they want company running an errand, or join me in a common area to talk or casually hang out!
I’m open to any gender, but I’m definitely looking for someone chill and laid back, who has passed their “party years.” I would like home to be a calm and relaxing environment, and I want everyone in the home to be comfortable and happy, so my ideal roommate would share my same sensibilities in terms of having a quiet, peaceful home. I would also love to have a roommate with a good sense of humor! I need to be able to laugh in my own home, without a doubt. Someone who couldn’t laugh at a corny joke would definitely be a deal-breaker. In terms of cleanliness, I like to clean as I go, and I’d like someone who did the same. I prefer not to have dirty dishes in the sink or on the table, and I’d like the bathroom and other shared areas to be cleaned regularly. I don’t mind clutter, and I don’t mind someone who is a little messy in their private room. I don’t have any pets right now, but I wouldn’t mind living with them (in fact, I’d love it).
