Finding a roommate in San Francisco
DS has been in San Francisco for 3 years. At first, he lived in a 3BR apartment with 2 roommates. One moved back to the East coast a little over a year ago. DS and other roommate moved to a 2 BR apartment. Now that roommate is moving back East. DS had arranged to move into a 3 BR with friends of a friend-or so he thought. He just got a text saying, oh sorry, someone else is going to be moving in with us. He does not want to try to find someone to move into his current apartment. He does not want to live alone. He does not know of any other friends or acquaintances looking for a roommate. Other than Craig’s List, how do you find a living situation in SF? I’m frightened that some random person could be anything from difficult to live with to a psychopath. I know that after 3 years living and working on his own that he is an adult and will have to figure this out, but I want to give him some helpful advice. Thanks.13 replies
