Some studies strongly suggest roommates chosen for dorm rooms during college can negatively affect anxiety levels, binge drinking, and a few excessive dieting behaviors.
Drawing conclusions from such a multivariate situation is challenging, but a safe overall assumption would probably be if you already feel personally challenged keeping your own behavior around anxiety, binge drinking or dieting under control . . .
. . . you and future potential roommates might both be happier if you didn’t roommate with anyone who struggles with similar, as it’s possible you’ll reinforce these behaviors in each other as a negative influence.
If you’d like to find a roommate in Birmingham, hopefully it won’t be an anxious experience.
