Default Advice in looking for roommates in Tempe?

I plan to move to the Tempe area end of this year and am looking for any advice on searching for roommates for I will not be able to afford a place on my own.

Find some more money...

Having roommates is never an ideal situation. If you must, look on Craigslist, there are lots of them available.

Ya definitely look on craiglist. Because of ASU it is common in Tempe to have roommates so it shouldn't be hard to find a room. Some people even rent out spare bedrooms.

I considered roommates once and went to roommates.com.

I was just honest about myself and got a decent amount of replies. The only catch is something about a paid subscription or something like that, I wasn't clear on all the details. Whatever it was affected sending messages to people. I could send messages, but couldn't read anything sent to me. The way around that was sending people my email address so we could talk. For the most part I could get through to people and we corresponded via email.

I don't know what you're looking for in a roommate, but I'd just say be cautious. I considered roommates out of desperation, but otherwise that would be so hard for me to do again.
