(Finding the perfect Fire Island roommate isn't easy—but it's fun!)
It may seem cruel to think about now, but summer will come—eventually. When it does, you’ll once again be frolicking on Fire Island, showing off your tanline on the beach and trolling the Meat Rack for trade under the stars. It gets a little pricey to spend a summer by the sea, and the most effective way to cut costs is to share a place. The Center, always one step ahead, set up the Fire Island Share-a-Thon so that F.I. hopefuls can meet, mingle, and find their ideal summer housemates. But if you’re going to spend the summer putting SPF 30 on someone’s back and sharing a bathroom—not to mention a trick or two—there are a few things you should bear in mind for finding the perfect share buddy. A season is a long time to live with someone, after all.
1. MONEY, HONEY
2. PINES PRINCE VS. CHERRY GROVE QUEEN
3. NEAT FREAK OR SUPER SLOB?
4. STRANGE BEDFELLOWS
