Ben, Male, 25yrs

Looking in: New York City, Murray Hill, Upper East Side, Upper West Side

My name is Ben, I’m a 25 year old guy looking for a quiet, comfortable place in a safe neighborhood! I’m a non-smoker, I don’t have pets, and I don’t play loud music or host parties or anything like that. I am clean, friendly, and considerate. I enjoy playing soccer, movies, hiking, board games, snowboarding, and hanging out with friends. I recently got engaged to my girlfriend of 6 years who lives in Boston, so I actually travel there relatively frequently on the weekends so you'd often have the place to yourself! I'm from St. Louis originally and then moved to Boston for my undergraduate degrees in biology and public health. I am now doing clinical rotations in various hospital in NYC, preparing to graduate in June.

Amy, Female, 27yrs

Looking in: Upper West Side, Lower Manhattan

My name is Amy Pierce and I am Sales Account Executive at a GovTech start-up (SeamlessDocs). I've been there for almost three years and I love it. (LinkedIn) I'm looking to move because I had moved in with my boyfriend in August and things didn't work out, so I'm living at home on Staten Island with my parents right now. I was living in Morningside Heights at 120th and Manhattan avenue, and before I moved I was there for almost four years and loved it - just looking to be a bit further downtown now. As a person: I grew up on Staten Island, and went to a small liberal arts college in St. Augustine, FL. I love records and classic rock, true crime podcasts, and yoga. I spend a lot of time out of the apartment, keep a pretty normal 9-5 work schedule, and love going out with friends on the weekend. I'm not really a party girl, and if I am out crazy late, I don't bring the party home. I don't drink or smoke, but it's okay if you do! I don't have any pets or any plans to get a pet, just looking to settle down into this next chapter of my life with a cool roomie somewhere downtown. As a roomie: I'm pretty laid back. I'm not a super crazy neat-freak, but I like to keep my things tidy and the apartment cozy. Shared spaces are shared spaces, I'm flexible to adjust to what environment y'all are looking to maintain (whether that's super clean, or just sort of organized). I'm a pretty quiet person, don't cook all that much but when I do I'm super good at getting dishes taken care of ASAP (thank you fear of bugs!). I'm looking to move ASAP - this commute is killing me lol. Shooting for ‪December 1st‬, but the 15th works too.
