How to find ERE roommates (Boston)

Post by drbl » Fri Feb 01, 2019 1:43 pm

I've been looking for housing within 2 miles of Longwood Medical Area in Boston, and it seems likely that I'll have to find a roommate with whom to share a 200-300 sqft studio or bedroom, if I want to keep housing costs under $600/mo. I have friends who are willing to room with me but only if I allow for a larger, thus pricier, place; they don't like the idea of sharing a < 300 sqft room.

I figured that fellow EREs would be more open to sharing a 200-300 sqft room (*). I don't want to turn this into a "looking for roommates" thread since I don't think that's the spirit of this forum, but I'm wondering if people can recommend online forums or communities (Facebook groups, subreddits, etc.) where I'm more likely to find EREs or like-minded people looking for roommates/housing. I haven't found many of these people on Craigslist. Thanks!

(*) A 200-300 sqft room can easily fit 2 twin-sized beds and at least 2 other pieces of furniture like desks or dressers, which is all that's needed for a place mainly used for sleep.

Also if I wasn't married with kids and if I happened to live in Boston...I would be down!
