Save yourself the trouble. DO NOT USE ROOMIEMATCH.

Really, don't waste your time. There is nothing good about this.

Answering all the questions to make a profile takes a long time and is a fruitless effort.

Then on day one you will find 50-70 emails from "other subscribers" and their responses to the long profile questionnaire... in plain text. Honestly, who has time to read through that many EIGHT PAGE emails to find a roommate?? EVERYDAY!

That's the thing - these emails don't stop coming! You'll have another 50 emails the next day. And the next. And as far as I can tell, these "subscribers" are just bots, not real people. However, I wouldn't know because in order to respond to any of them, you have to pay RoomieMatch $20, which I thankfully had the wherewithal to decide against.

So, then you try to unsubscribe. Either because you decided you couldn't handle all the obnoxious emails or because you found a roommate through an avenue that actually works (e.g. Craigslist).

Welp, surprise, surprise! You cannot unsubscribe. So you try to contact them, but there is ZERO customer support. So now you're stuck receiving hundreds of emails a week from a bonk "service". Forever.

Again, do NOT use roomiematch.

At this point, in addition to marking their emails as spam so I don't see them in my inbox, I also set up a filter to redirect all incoming emails from roomiematch to go right back to them, in an attempt to flood their server as much as they are mine. Doubt it'll do anything, but it feels better. Ha!

In summary, I would not recommend Roomie Match to a friend.
