We all know the struggle of having roommates in college. It’s something that’s very bittersweet. You either love them or hate them or fall somewhere in the middle. There are some things I think are necessary to do with your roommates to build and maintain a healthy relationship.

1. Make time to have dinner together

This might sound silly, but just taking one hour out of your day and preparing a meal together and getting the chance to sit down and talk about your day will help your relationship immensely.

2. Have a roomies' night out

I get it, you live with them so you might not want to spend every ounce of your free time with them, but I’m telling you, setting aside just a few dates to go out and get stupid can really do wonders.

3. Vent to one another

You don't truly know someone until you live with them. They know your habits, (good and bad), your routine, and your friends. It doesn't hurt to share your feelings and exchange advice with one another.

4. Go grocery shopping together

Another task that might sound silly to do together, but it’s a lot easier to try to live a healthy lifestyle and eat better when you have someone on your team to help you and work together. And even if you're not shopping for organic bananas, it’s still not as fun to shop for popcorn chicken alone.

5. Set aside time to clean the place together

This will make those passive-aggressive notes left on the fridge and group chats vanish. If you set aside time to tackle the chores together, it won't result in fights about who left their chipotle in the fridge for 2 weeks. Communication is key.

Whenever you hear about roommate stories, they're almost never good, and they usually scare you into never wanting a roommate. "Did you hear her roommate steals her clothes?" "Her roommate doesn't shower!" "Wow, her roommate doesn't talk at all, and doesn't do laundry." From what I hear, there are more bad stories than good. That is why I consider myself lucky, because my roommate is nothing like one of those bad stories. When life hands you a good roommate after talking to about 40 girls through Facebook, a few things happen.

1. You always have someone to talk to.

2. You know each other's schedules, and whenever you both have a break is an exciting time.

3. You'll never have to dance alone.


4. You always have someone to do something with, even if it's just walking down the hall.

5. You both look out for each other, because this is your first time without your parents.

6. You always have a shoulder to lean on when things get tough.

7. Borrowing each other's things is a daily thing.

8. You TRY to help with each other's homework and assignments.

9. They're encouraging when it comes to boys. (Unless they're a f*ckboy.)

10. They're your biggest support system and your personal cheerleader.

11. They never forget to wish you luck on a big exam.

12. They accept how gross you are in the morning and not so pleasant sometimes.

13. You both know each other's favorite and least favorite things.

14. Leaving each other notes saying goodbye before class if you don't see them is normal.

15. Saying goodbye for breaks is upsetting.

16. Not seeing them all day is upsetting.

17. You have more pictures together than any of your other friends.

18. You found a best friend for life.
