Sign(s) you should room with: Gemini, Taurus, Virgo

Although you're determined and hardworking, you might not have the motivation to do things that others demand of you.
Sign(s) you should room with: Aries, Cancer, Sagittarius
As a Gemini, you're good about reading social cues and adjusting your attitudes accordingly. An issue that might appear in a roommate scenario is bottling up your feelings when disagreements arise between you and your roommate.
And — no offense — but Geminis can sometimes come across as two-faced. This might cause problems with roommates who aren’t as adept at dealing with conflict.
Sign(s) you should room with: Aries, Scorpio
Cancers are filled with emotion and intuition — they can read those vibes.

Sign(s) you should room with: Capricorn, Sagittarius, Scorpio, Virgo
Known for being independent, intimidating, intense and seductive, Scorpios might need a roommate who is outgoing and able to handle these qualities.

Aquarius are quirky, unique people. They're definitely dreamers.
