    Is there an age cutoff one should abide to when it comes to having a roommate?

    when I hear a guy in his late 20's or beyond say "roommate", I assume they're gay.

    If your roommate is a female who looks like Victoria Lawson? Never

    A guy I work with mentioned his roommate and I was floored. He's mid 30's?

    I guess I can understand if you're not home much, or are planning to purchase a home soon and want to save some cash, but if you have a roommate after 30 and are living the party lifestyle, fuck you.

    I think if you're still in that transitional period between college and sorting out your career, which SHOULD be in your mid 20s, it's fine. If you're over 30, something's going wrong in your life.

    Over 30 means they are a closeted homo.

    That Liberace had roommates all through his life. Seems like he could never find the right girl for him.

    I went from living with my parents
    to living with my buddy
    to living with my wife

    I've never lived alone

    After 30 for sure
    Unless it is a temporary thing like helping a divorced buddy or a friend between housing.

    I'm renting out some space for a friend I've known since child hood. I was reluctant and didn't really want to, but I agreed to for 1 year.
    and he is paying rent+ half the bills. The rooms he's using were empty anyway.

    if you are in an apartment, with a full time roommate and either right up on or over 30, you have made horrible life choices

    I told myself by 30.
    Did it when I was 28
    But living with my girlfriend was really just like a roommate that I fucked

    Up until the last couple of years I would have said 30 and up... You have problems. But with the rents exploding in the SF Bay Area I'm more likely to give a pass. $2500 a month for a studio is just nuts.

    The only thing worse than having a roommate is living with your parents.

    If you can't afford your own place, get a studio, make it nice, and live a lifestyle where you spend very little time there. That way, when you bring someone home, you have the "I know it's small, but I'm never here" excuse lined up for you.
