Looking for a Roommate: Should You Live with Your Best Friend?

My sophomore year of college was a disaster, mainly because my roommate and I disagreed on everything from when to turn off the music so the other could get some rest to whose turn it was to clean the bathroom floor. Our Sunday nights transformed into episodes of Jerry Springer, and when our one-year lease was up, we happily parted ways and stopped communicating. Too bad, because before we became roommates, we were best friends -- for 11 years.
