I've not had the best luck with looking for a roommate. Some of the people who've answered my ads were funny (in retrospect)...for example, I had a guy who called up and asked if he could walk around the apartment naked!

I know CL gets the most traffic, but is there any other place on the web I can post my roommate wanted ad? Some sites are asking for money and frankly, if I don't know if they're getting any traffic, I don't want to give them mine.

If anyone can give me a recommendation or two, I'd appreciate it.
thanks!

Default Checked reviews on that site

Thanks for the info. Did a Google search on it and found a lot of complaints-ranging from the site trying to "up sell" you features to very creepy people on the site.

Would you prefer a roommate, who has something in common with you? What are your interests? With the screen name dogmommy, do you own a dog? Do pet shops in your neighborhood have bulletin boards? Where do you work? Like your job & co-workers? Perhaps one needs a new place. (Be careful though, before combining work & private life!)

Depending on the neighborhood you are looking in, you might be able to find a local website/blog/forum where people post roommate ads for that particular area. Don't just say you want a roommate either...be specific (maybe you already are, but if you aren't, definitely throw in some more details in there). I think there are also roommate mixer type events out there but not sure how to look up them up.
