I've had very good luck with being teamed up with somebody as a roommate. I've done it three times and had good roommates. You may have to be blunt enough to lay down some ground rules when you meet. I find it's best to be up front about how you feel about any issues that might pop up. (ie: if they or you meet someone). We aren't kids anymore so it shouldn't be a problem but it can be? Good luck.
