Finding a Rocker Roommate online gives you a wider scope of choice and you can remain at a distance until you are ready to meet.

If you’ve never tried it before or if you are worried by any stories you may have heard, here are a few tips to help you find a Rocker Roommate online:

1. Trust your instincts. If something doesn’t feel right, why take a chance. Disengage gracefully. If this does not work, just disengage.

2. Keep it real. Be as honest as you can when creating your free residential and commercial property listing. You would not want to be misled so don’t mislead anyone else. It’s also very hard to pretend that the premises is neat, clean, and safe when it is not!

3. Post a photo, but make sure you cannot identify your family, friends, home, or car in it.

4. Keep in control. Don’t give up any “personal” information too soon or post “personal” information without knowing exactly who you are giving it to. For example, where you work, your personal financial information, etc. However, you need to be contacted about you listing, so perhaps limit your contact information to s second email address suited for the purpose to filter those who are contacting you.

Protect your identity at all times.

Avoid any talk of finances too readily. There is no reason why you should ever disclose any financial information online.

Don’t be lured by requests for financial help. If someone asks you for money even if you have built up a trusting chat with them, they are almost certainly a scammer.

Don’t be pressured into giving any information or pictures that you don’t want to and especially into meeting someone before you are ready.

If you’re unsure, ask for a recent photo of who you are talking to. For example, their driver’s license.

Research the property listing (address) in the appropriate property appraiser’s website to insure you that the person that listed the property for rent is the actual owner or has consent to list the property.

Think about what you write in your listing and when chatting. Does it convey the right tone and intention?

Be cautious of anyone who declares their undying love for you, especially if you have never met them.

Meeting the Rocker Roommate in person.

With the rush of excitement, it’s sometimes easy to forget to keep your safety in mind. You think you have met the online Rocker Roommate of your dreams or maybe you’re just curious, but you’ve agreed to meet. You may be a veteran at picking roommates or maybe returning to being a roommate after a relationship has ended but here are some quick words of advice for meeting up:

1. Don’t allow yourself to get pushed into meeting a potential Rocker Roommate and certainly don’t give over your personal contact details unless you are comfortable to do so. Never give out your home or office address unless you are totally confident that you know and can trust your Rocker Roommate.

2. Avoid anyone who talks about sex or finances before you have even met them. Be wary of anyone who declares undying love for you or your pet too readily.

3. When you meet those first few Rocker Roommates, choose a neutral public location that is easily accessible to you both and is within view and hearing distance of other people.

4. Tell someone that you trust who you are meeting, where you are going, and what time you plan to be there. If your plans change, don’t forget to provide an update.

5. Arrange with someone to “check in” with you at regular intervals and have a coded way of telling them how it’s going. Especially, if you need help.

6. Trust your instincts. If you think something is wrong, you should politely make an excuse and leave.

7. Never rely on your proposed Rocker Roommate for transport to or from your meeting place. Especially plan your journey home in case you need to leave unexpectedly. Have a cab number handy or have readily available a way to quickly get a ride if you need one. For example, Uber.

8. If you do have to go together in a cab, or another way you are together, try to be dropped off last. But at least avoid showing your Rocker Roommate exactly where you live.

9. Be careful with alcohol so that you keep your wits about you. If you think your food or drink has been tampered with then don’t consume it.

10. Make sure you have a fully charged phone with enough minutes.

Respect that your Rocker Roommate may have the same concerns and don’t push them into doing anything they are not comfortable with.
