Why Your Best Friends Don't Always Make the Best Roommates

Some people think that rooming with their best friends will eliminate grievances, but be very careful. Of all the stories I've heard, this isn't a good idea. One particular story involved two girls who've been best friends since elementary school. If anyone would look at their room now, they'd see a manila-colored line of masking tape across half of the room. They've halved up everything but the kitchen and bathroom area, and all hell breaks loose if one of them or their personal items crosses the other side of the line. Just really consider that living with a person is different than liking a person.
