Looking for roommates in all the right places. via Facebook

Let’s face it. We’ve all had our share of bad roommates and finding a new one or a new room can be tough. Still, you might be tired of your current living companions, or you need a new roommate. Would you prefer not to do it in a way where you could meet the next Craigslist serial killer? Have you ever been speed dating?

Luckily, if you’re in that situation, you have a new way of fixing it: By attending Brooklyn’s first Speed Roommating event tonight at The Montrose

Like the speed dating scene, you’ll meet tons of new people but instead of finding love, you can find someone to live with quickly and safely. Once you get to The Montrose (47 5th Avenue, Park Slope), indicate whether you’re seeking a room or roommate with a handy name tag, and a sea of candidates are waiting to talk to you. Get to know new, potential roommates in a relaxed, safe and social environment without complications and without inviting someone from Craigslist into your living room for one of those awkward interviews.

Speed Roommating has been happening in Manhattan since 2011 and has proven to be popular, so at least you’ll know this isn’t the worst way to find a roommate. Reserve your FREE spot for tonight’s Brooklyn kickoff, from 7pm-9pm, and then prepare to find a new roommate or find the perfect new living situation. If you should happen to find love along the way…even better!
