10:05 pm: well, here we go again
For somebody who likes stability so much, my living situation seems to be changing an awful lot this year. As you know, I moved in with Sovay this winter, after searching for an apartment in a frantic hurry. The place is gorgeous and I love Somerville and Sovay is a great housemate...but she wants to move in with her fiance quite soon. Thus I need to find somebody to rent half the apartment for half the term of the lease.

As you were so helpful in finding me a housemate in February, I'm hoping one of you can help me find another. For locals, I live on Winter Hill. For people whose friends or relations might be spending a semester near Boston, I'm walking distance to Tufts and have good bus connections to the Red, Orange, and Green lines (which get you to downtown and most universities.) Please, if you know somebody who you think might be a good fit for this, let us know.

I'll put a detailed description in the next post, for convenient linking. Right now I'm sort of hoping for sympathy and advice, if anybody has some to spare.

Oh, dear. I'm sorry you're losing Sovay so soon! I don't have any leads, but I hope you find someone compatible. *HUG*

I'm very sorry you're in this situation. I can't think of anyone just at the moment in Boston, but I'll keep it in mind.

Urg. What a pain.

(I have linked you to someone looking for an apartment, but I think the price range might be a bit high. But we'll see!)

There's some flexibility in the price. (I don't want to be stuck with not finding anybody!) Do you think people will read it and say, "I want it, and I could afford it if it were $50-100 less?" Or if I'll never know they exist unless I put the lower price in the ad?

I think you put "Rent negotiable for the right roommate" in the ad. That way, you ask for what you really need but also signal that people who can only pay $850 shouldn't necessarily pass you by...

If I were you, I'd seek out the 2 - 3 greatest extraverts in my life and see if they could suggest someone. Do you know Jay Sekora?
