The basic idea behind speed dating is transferred over to roommate searching to create speedroommating. Finding the right place to live is already a challenging feat, and it becomes even more stressful to lock down the perfect roommate.
Speedroommating is an event that anyone can attend to mix and mingle until they find the perfect roommate match. Everyone has a name tag sticker that indicates if they have a room or if they are looking for a room so people know right off the bat what they are getting into. The sticker also includes information on price range and desired location. Conversation comes easy to event-goers because they all share a common need.
At the moment, speedroommating is only held in New York City and England, but with its brilliant formula, it is sure to spread quickly.
