Too much coffee, some spare time, lots of fun and an entrepreneurial group as friends can bring some amazing ideas, for instance: Rent-a-roomie

Staying alone has its pros and cons- the freedom vs. getting ‘the space’. Whenever the occasional loneliness bug stings, there isnt a temp-fix. Tada! Here comes rent-a-roomie.

Just because you might have to move someday, do you purchase a truck? No, you rent a U-Haul truck for that occasion. You are roomie-sick? No problem, you get to spend valuable time with 1) a roomie who is similarly staying alone nearby, or 2) a group of roomies for a day/weekend.

The intended product is a social-networking like site, where on the basis of your likes/dislikes, and the availability dates, the temp-roomie(s) is matched. Sounds good, so what is in store? Here is the virtual tour-

Actual roommate like experience- You bring some groceries during the visit, as soon as you enter, you would be harassed for late rent check. After a few minutes, one of them might ask you for a loan (you too can ask them) or request you to clean the dishes while he does the cooking. All this is solely to build the right atmosphere. After the cooking, you would watch a game or movie with them in their house, and evening you would bid farewell with man-hugs.

Google confirms that this idea does’t exist yet. Why? you decide that. What I have decided is to ask if anybody interested in investing? πŸ˜€
