So my SO and I are looking for a roommate and decided to look on craigslist, well anyways, what are your thoughts on doing it?



I am a little nervous just because it would be someone we do not know!
I plan on doing a background check etc.
I think I wouldn't be as concerned if I didn't have my daughter, but I am scared of getting a crazy!

Sounds like a good way to meet a rapist/murderer.

Meh. We've found multiple roommates through CL. We've had a couple of annoying people, but otherwise, they've been fine.

I wouldn't... cragslist is infamous for the amount of crazies that lurk on that site.

I'd not do that. Especially since you have a child.

You're right by Boeing so it IMO it would be fine. I actually rented rooms n Lynnwood from 2 different Boeing people with no issues.
