Hey guys, I'm a 19 year old who lives in a Third World Country. I've known about TRP for about 2 years now. I still haven't had any big success with girls, but I've improved on many ways. I've started developing all these useful habits 2 years ago (meditating, reading, working out) and I'm in great shape physically and mentally.
I've recently started Programming and I landed a job which brings me about ~1k-1.2k$ monthly. For a country where the average monthly salary is ~500$, this is great for me.
Last year, I moved out of my parent's home to go study at a University (Computer Science). I used to live on 300$ monthly (like most of the students in my country). I had to share rent with 4 other people (rent cost me 50$ monthly). They weren't the best, I picked some bad habits living with my friends. But since the pandemic, I've moved back to my parent's house. I've been working on my job and earning bucks. But when this ends, I'll have to move out again.
Now I have a lot more money to play around with, so I pretty much will share rent with only one roommate. I want to be very careful with choosing who I want to live with, since that affects me on a big level.
My first question is: What are some qualities to look for when looking for a roommate?
Also growing up, I wasn't poor. I always had clothes and food to eat. But I've never had this kind of money on my palm (always lived off what parents gave me)
So my second question would be: What are some things which I can spend money on, to increase my SMV but also to Invest in MYSELF.
