Now there's an easier way to find roommates in Toronto

Finding a roommate in Toronto is a dicey proposition - there are lots of cool people and friends of friends looking for roommates, but then there's the sort of people who will steal your Chapstick and eat it. In an effort to keep roommate horror stories firmly in the domain of hilarious Internet-based schadenfreude, a new event series in Toronto is helping prospective housemates find one another (over beers, naturally).

Apartmate.ca, a soon-to-launch site geared toward matching roommates and apartments, is hosting their second roommate mixer at Tequila Bookworm on Wednesday (November 19). Think of it as speed-dating for roommates - instead of spending ages answering ads and meeting prospective roommates, you can chat face-to-face about who washes and who dries, or where to hang your collection of vintage horror-movie posters. Organizers say several successful matches were already made at the first event. Tickets are $10 and include a free drink.
