    Hi everyone,
    This may be a strange request, but I am looking for a roommate for August. I move from Boston to Denver and was recently in Denver looking for apartments. There are a lot of really nice 1 BR places, but the 2 BRs are even nicer (they have even more space) and are way cheaper. The money isn't a huge deal, but I don't mind saving where I can. What's more important is living with someone. I've always had awesome roommates here in Boston, and would like to continue the trend.

    As for me, I'm a 33 year old guy, just graduated from residency and am coming to Denver as a fellow (this basically means I'm doing more training in medicine and have yet to make a real attending salary). I love the outdoors and pretty much any athletic activity. I frequently race triathlons and am biking across the country in July (Can't wait!). Also, love the arts and have an east coast industrial aesthetic. The apartment I likes have exposed brick, concrete floors, and open beam ceilings (but all of this is hard to find, so then I move into liking modern styling a well). Lastly, I'm white, gay and out, a healthy eater, clean but not crazy about it, non-smoking, funny (at least I think I am), and work a lot (I think that means I'm ambitious).

    I would love to meet some people who are looking for something similar. Who knows, maybe we will hit it off and find an apartment together. That would kind of be amazing, but I forgot to mention I'm a bit of a skeptic, so I'm not holding my breath. icon_smile.gif Thanks for reading this much. Message me, and I look forward to hearing from you.

    Oh, I'm looking to spend <$1400 per person (I actually saw a great place downtown for $1600 for a two bedroom, which would be pretty killer). Anywho, we can talk about prices and such later.

    Hi there. Jaylore here I hv 2 say... I would recommend that you check out a studio/ effcny apt. I was quite content with the one oN Logan St I believe it was 935 Logan St. just two blocks North of the Govenors Mansion. I paid only 369.00 and the heat/a/c, was included. (This was in 2001, though and I don't think this kind of deal exist anymore)
    I think it is ALWAYS much better to have your own space to hang your ball cap.

    Wish you the best in your search. Remember to get plenty of rest and drink enough h2o/ powerade so that you can tolerate the mile-high altitude! lore_101@live.com

    AirBnb is a good place to start looking.

    You can look for places where, instead of having the whole place to yourself, you can have a private room inside somebody's home. Hosts are vetted and identification verified. Look for hosts who have several positive reviews as opposed to those who have no established reputation.

    Once you've gotten yourself established and have begun making social connections, you may find a good roommate situation. You also might find the good roommate situation with your AirBnb host as well.
