“Dear PoPville,

My roommate is moving out, and I’m going to be looking for a new one. How can I find a roommate that’s actually clean? With my last search, I stressed that I like common areas clean, and explained that the photos with my ad were how clean I keep it normally (which was genuinely clean and uncluttered). Each person I was considering said that they liked it that clean as well, but I still ended up with a messy roommate. Is there a way to tell if someone is actually clean from the short time you meet them? I don’t know if I want to shell out for a weekly cleaning service, but are the only options that or living alone?”
