My best roommate is my current roommate. We met through mutual friends and were at the same party when it came up that she was looking for a new place and my roommate had just moved away. Apart from what a lot of people have said, I like living with someone who has the SAME (in my case, 9-5) work schedule I do. I like hearing her up and around in the morning. It makes it easier to drag myself out of bed, and vice versa. I do agree with a lot of other points people have made, however. She and I are both very messy and agreed to hire a cleaning service once a week for the entire house. We also have the same (very liberal) attitudes about parties, drugs, alcohol, and sleepovers. It's not uncommon for one of us to come home at 5 AM on a Monday morning and find people passed out on the floor, bottles all over the porch, and powder on the dining table. The key is definitely common ground on those three broad issues of schedule, cleanliness, and lifestyle.
