So I'm considering rooming with my high school best friend if we end up at the same college. I've heard that people who have roomed with their best friend either never bothered to meet new people or found out that they couldn't live with each other and stopped being friends after 1 year of rooming together. I've also heard people say that they shared a dorm with their best friends and remained as close as they were in high school.
The sort of things that I would imagine made things difficult for others probably wouldn't be a problem for us though. We both sleep very late, we know each others eating habits, and we both know about our general cleanliness preferences.
I'd like to hear some success/failure stories from anyone who actually did room with their best friend when they started college so I can decide what to do. Thanks.
