8. Thank you.

Filled out a "Silvernest" profile and I was feeling good because the questions seem thorough if not nuanced enough. I chose, "no" for having marijuana in the house only because it is currently illegal, not because I have any moral objections to other people's use of it.

Unfortunately, the rents displayed in the area I am seeking were high for my budget. (Did I just miss a possible pun, there?) I was hoping someone who owned a house would like having a roommate/tenant who could provide a few extra hundred bucks and help out around the place. The $1000 range in rents suggests that someone wants to split the mortgage, which I can't afford. Or, maybe they're are just going by the market rate in their areas.

I do know that I could share a two-bedroom apartment in a few safe-but-not-toney neighborhoods for a lot less.

The one homeowner profile that matched my budget described herself as a 'God-loving, Christian woman", and she may be very kind and respectful. But with the Evangelical support for Whats-his-face running rampant in this country. I am not about to take that chance.
