1. Make other friends
You may love your roommate now, but if you ONLY hang out with each other you are bound to get into some fights.
2. Set aside time for each other
Make it a thing to cook dinners together every Sunday night or get drinks after class one day a week. This lets you create a fun tradition you can look forward to every week.
3. “Do it” when your roommate isn’t home
College apartments have thin walls. To avoid any awkward fights, do it when they aren’t around…or just invest in a REALLY loud fan.
As much as you would like, you can’t always get what you want. Learn to give up things in exchange for others.
5. Respect their stuff
Don’t eat all their food or use their stuff without permission. Just because you live together, doesn’t give you the right to snoop through their things. Be respectful and ask before you take.
