looking for housing in SF (near Castro/Dolores Park area)

Postby jamison » Tue Sep 30, 2003 10:51 am

I posted a message last week to the I Need forum, but a couple ranger friends suggested I try here as well:

My roommates are moving out and I decided this is just the kick in the ass I need to get out of Santa Cruz and finally move up to SF.

I'd like to find a place in an existing household, a burner friend said that's usually easier, cheaper, and I want to live in a fun household with people who are more then just roommates, but can hang out together too.

So I hope someone out there will see this and something will click with a friend who's got a room, or you yourself have a place and think we might be a good match. so here's some info about me:

I'm 27, gay, a professional UI designer (I design web applications), have a good stable job, non-smoker, surfer (and happy to teach others how to surf too), non-smoker, and I smile a lot.

I've got my heart set on living in the Dolores Park/Castro area, and hope to find a fun, friendly, creative household. I think I've got a lot I can bring to a household in terms of personality, spirit and technical expertise (I've got a great stereo system and a wireless home network)

If anyone knows of a place, I'd be very thankful.

I have some friends that are moving out of thier place and their room is going to be availible, it is too rich for my blood, but I can give you the number.
I took the road less traveled, and now I would like to go back and find the paved one.

Yes, I've been checking Craig's List, daily, but haven't found anything yet.

Hey Jamison,

I live on 20th at Dolores; I'll keep an eye out for any kind of "room for rent" signs or roommate situations posted in the neighborhood (or I hear through word of mouth... it's a pretty friendly neighborhood).

Thanks Blenderhead, I really appreciate that, and to the others who've written me. There are few things that really scare me, and after ahving one roommate turn out to be a drug dealer finding a good roommate situation became part of the top three (along with the fear of falling and spiders)

Spiders are more scared of you than you are of them, check out my brother's site www.bighairyspiders.com, it hasent been updated in a while, but the psudo faq's are a hoot!

Yay! I found a new home in SF, right near Castro. I didn't know when I responded on Craig's list, but it turns out my new roommate is a burner too. And a fire dancer.

Excellent, Jamison!

Oh yeah, 100th post. weee-heee.

If there was a Homer emoticon, I would be tempted to use it; but since there isn't, and I wouldn't give in to the tempation anyway, I'll just say:




Mmmmmmmmmmmmm... beer.
