*Sharing with: 28 year old queer left-wing woman of colour who works full-time plus studies part-time. Enjoys debating politics, skating and TV. Very organised and enjoys keeping the home as a clean, tidy, soothing escape from a busy lifestyle.
* Ideal housemate: a mature, preferably full-time employed person with a regular schedule, has lived in sharehouses before, pays rent and bills reliably on time every time, does chores consistently weekly without needing reminding, is very clean and has high standards for tidiness. These criteria are very important and it's best to be upfront and honest about them to avoid issues down the line. Not a party animal but is okay with partners or occasional friends over for dinner or TV marathons. Looking for someone who isn't a recluse that just sits alone in the dark in their bedroom all of the time, someone who wants to get to know and be friends with the person they live with. Hoping to share a home rather than just a house and would like to stay long-term. Must be LGBTIQ-friendly and progressive. Smoking is outdoors only. Pets or may not be allowed by the landlord upon application.
