Hey there. Lets get down to business. Hope you enjoy my verbose attempt to snag a place to live!br>
First off, I'm looking to move into an existing apt or find a place with one or two people.

  • 24F college-grad working a 9-5

  • artist in a past life (and trying to reclaim that)

  • nerdy about design, photography, media studies, urban planning and Chicago

  • loves to entertain but dislikes the idea of random strangers in the house

  • likes all kinds of tunes, going to shows, rockin' out

  • open-minded & positive, respectful of others, etc etc (generally a likable gal)

  • loves kitsch and brick-a-brack

  • can go the quiet, keep-to-myself route or the lets-go-out, lets-be-friends route

  • has an extreme love of good beer (Unibroue!) and cocktails, but not hitting the bottle nightly

  • grew up in the north burbs, lived in Urbana for 4 years, lived in Bucktown for 17 months and West Avondale for the past year

  • allergic to cats, crazy about well-behaved slobber-free dogs (I don't have any pets)

  • HEAT INCLD: up to $600

  • NO HEAT: I'd like to stay under $500

  • large enough bedroom with good closet space

  • storage space in the apartment or in the bldg

  • w/d in the bldg or in-unit (Laundromats are not fun. Unless theres booze and company, then maybe I could swing it)

  • dishwasher optional but awesome

  • secure apartment/bldg

  • close to blue line (<1/2 mile), close to late night buses

  • As for where to live -- due to my reverse car commute, I
    can't live too far east or north -- preferable hoods include (and
    pretty much limited to): Logan Square, Ukranian Village, East Village,
    West Town, Bucktown, Wicker Park, Avondale


  • 21-30 female (or if its multiple roommates - female & male is cool)

  • you have a job that supports you or you have student loans that support you. something to support you.

  • "exciting" personality

  • responsible, mature, honest -- you know, the things that make for a decent roomie

  • okay with nice out-of-town friends spending the night on the couch, one at a time of course and only on occasion

I have furniture that doesn't necessarily have to come with me, but I
would rather integrate the items into a place rather than get rid of
them or resort to storage:

* Couch * 3 vintage parlor chairs * newish dark wood entertainment
center *dining room table/chairs * electronics * artwork/screenprints *

If any or all of the above jives with you, please e-mail me with info about yourself and we'll go from there.

Thanks for reading
- Jess

What if I, as a male, paid most of the rent but fornicated with you regularly? I'm willing to pay most of the rent. My current lease is month to month so its no biggie to move.

Have you found a roommate yet? Because I think I might need one in the near future. We've met before, but it was a looooong time ago, I think I met you through Bobby, before he moved to Denver.
