    No..not in THAT way, lol. I had an ad running for roomies where the room will be available in October and today I met a couple looking for a place, at that time frame. Both are young. She is 22, he is 25. I was worried at first...cuz we are old fogies, set in our ways. But we hit it off right away. And the dogs LOVED them. Major factor there. My furkids know stuff humans don't know they know. Mine took to both of them right away. And....the gal is a Native American (Yaqui) and participates in NA dancing. As we showed them the house and the soon to be room they would have, etc, we talked about how the young man wants very much a garden area..to grow corn, tomatoes, and as we were outside, he put his hand out and let the many bees in the flowers crawl on his hand then gently brushed them away. I said bee must be one of his totems...and his eyes lit up and said yeah..he was thinking that awhile back too because lots of bees have been visiting him lately..especially on the door handle of his truck.

    They don't like to drink, but they do like a joint now and then. I said fine..but outside. What I don't know won't hurt me. They beamed. They both said they like their meditative areas and private space and I said ME TOO!!! All in all..we talked about 1 and a half hours and they said the energy of my house was very good and would love to call here "home". I said I felt the same way. But....if they find something else between now and October, no hard feelings on either end and they agreed. So....I think I found my new roomies. Young, but old souls.

    Now I wait to see what happens next. But I'm not as worried as I was. :clap2:
    We had a lot in common, not counting the age differences.

    You might want to set a conditional month trial for compatibleness before signing an agreement. The best times maybe bad.

    It's a month to month rental. I plan to invite them over for dinner in a few weeks, just so we can talk some more. Nothing is settled yet. But I got good vibes from them. I won't accept any monies or write a contract until after the room is empty. In the meantime, I will hold the room for them without a deposit. IF it came to that, then if they found something else, i would just return their deposit. I'm only charging 200 bucks deposit anyway..which covers utilities once they move out since the bills are always a month behind.

    I figure I've hit the jackpot if it's a 60 year old German lady.

    They usually take care of the place and they don't believe in TV, stereos, and smoking pot.

    Hope it works out for the best.
    I rented a commercial space to a young couple who renovated it and opened a hair salon.
    He's the son of the local police chief.
    They're 8 months behind in rent.
