Living with someone you don't get along with can be a nightmarish experience, which is why this roommate matching service exists. Similar to dating sites Tinder and Match.com, LeaseBuddies works as a matchmaking site but for people seeking roommates. Standard sites let you simply preview the space (hopefully with pictures) while any personal details about the tenant(s) are offered in the description.

The LeaseBuddies roommate matching service covers eight areas they believe are necessary to a peaceful cohabitation experience that users must answer questions on. Instead of physical appearance, however, the profile discusses things like rent budget, quiet hours, noise preferences, levels of introversion/extroversion, cleaning habits, preferred groceries and utilities arrangements, mutual interests and mutual friends.
