Finding a roommate has a lot in common with dating. In both cases, the pressure to lock someone down may cause us to overlook potential warning signs that this person might not be a good fit. But red flags exist for a reason: to warn us to get out before it's too late. So as tempting as it may be to jump in to a living situation with someone, it's always better to take into consideration any potential red flags before you're trapped in a year-lease with a messy alcoholic who has six pet snakes (yes, I am speaking from personal experience).
1.) From juicius:
Mom moves him in while he watches. Mom sets his room up while he stares into his phone. Mom shops grocery and cooks it for him while he complains he's hungry. Mom fills the fridge with pre-cooked meals while he eats. Mom cleans up everything and leaves.
Congratulations! Now you're his mom.
