I have had very mixed experiences with roommates. In the summer of 2010, I was just getting out of a terrible fight/roommate breakup so I was quite apprehensive about living with someone for 4 months that I never met. I never imagined I would meet one of my best friends and someone who gets me completely.
We couldn't be more different. I am a habitual committer, she finds the idea of marriage a little scary. Until last year, she'd only lived in one town her whole life, I can't count the number of times I have moved on my hands-I have to use feet too. I trust people too quickly and give them the benefit of the doubt more than I should, she's a realist who believes if people break your trust they probably shouldn't get to have it again. I am a hopeless romantic, she's a realist romantic.
I am SOOOO glad that I have Chelsea in my life. I know that we are going to be friends until we are old ladies because I can do or say something that is totally against her personality, instead of telling me how weird it is, she takes it all in and doesn't freak out-she accepts me for who I am. I can tell her anything... You know that you are great friends with someone when you are apart for 18 months and the first time you see each other it's like you haven't been apart one day.
Love you Chels!
