roommate search

Ughhhh it is that time again. Time to post to Craigslist. We got a few responses and were hopeful. We had arranged to meet Kate, Janet, Sara, Elizabeth and Kristy.
Kate was nice, quiet, and seemed promising.
Janet and Elizabeth cancelled because we were not as close to the T as they had hoped.
Sara cancelled because she is no longer leaving her apartment.
Kristy just wasn't really our speed, and didn't seem like someone we were 100% interested in living with.
We offered the apt to Kate, who informed us that she determined she cannot afford to move out of where she is.
Back to craigslist, and now roommates.com
Craigslist brought us Ilona. She was.. interesting. A bit older (40?), a bit strung out, a musician. She would not fit in with us.
This is not fun.

No it's not fun. How well are you writing your ad? I have some advice on how to do it on my blog:

Remember you are only looking for one person, so write the ad to attract that person.

love your blog background!
