This post is long, but it is a good thing. It is designed to answer most potential questions up front, to save time. It will be faster to tell if we're a good fit.

Here is a little about me: 

I'm 26 years old, single female, with no pets, and no children.  I don't smoke, (no 420 either), I don't drink, and I don't party.  I enjoy occasional nice visits with friends and board game nights, but nothing crazy.

I am Christian, and I am really easygoing, loving, and kindhearted. I used to work as a nanny, so I’m great with kids. I often go out to Bible studies or run errands in the evenings.

I have a spotless clean background check too (gotta have that, to work with kids!). I would possibly be open to helping with kids sometimes, in exchange for lower rent.

I am disabled. (Nothing you need to worry about. I’m not mentally disabled, and I can walk, just not for days on end. Lolololol. It’s mostly autoimmune issues and fatigue I deal with.)

I’m really boring. I have a stable source of income, and it is 100% verifiable. Honestly, I’m probably more financially stable than many people my age. :) We can talk more about this. I’m just a normal person with health problems. I can prove that my income is more than 5x the rent.

I refuse to be a home-body, so I am gone often. I will also be seeking a part-time job once I’m established in my new home.

And when I am home and we're both around, I like to be at least decent friends with my roommates, instead of just a purely business relationship. If we're living together, we should be friendly. We don't have to be best friends, but being generally friendly is nice.

I don’t need to be around you 24/7 or be your bff. I often want to just be in my room and do my own thing.

I am local here in Colorado Springs. 

I'm just a good person, looking for a good, safe place to live.  You won't find a more trustworthy person around. Honestly, I just want some roommates who are boring, normal, and sane to live with.

I'm a non-denominational Christian, with a lean towards Mennonite. Hopefully that gives you any idea of how I try to live my life. I am kind, polite, modest, and I strive to be honest and a good person at all times. You wouldn't have to worry about anything immoral or weird when you live with me. I'm a very peaceful renter.

(And don't worry, I'm not pushy about religion either. Although if you're any denomination of Christian and we have this in common, it is always a nice bonus. We would have more in common.)

My ideal rent is about $400-$600 a month. I know that this amount is less than what some people are looking for. However, you get a service in return: peace of mind. You will not have a sketchy roommate with me. I am employed, very conservative, no drugs, no alcohol, no boyfriend over, and I have a spotless background check.

(I suppose I could go up to $800, but you would be really hard-pressed to talk me into that.)

If your goal is to have a quality renter, and safety is more important to you than price, then that's exactly what you'll find with me.

Basically, you won't find a more trustworthy renter. :)

For fun I like to read, cook, go on walks, go to church activities, and play board games. Yep, that's as exciting as I get.

I prefer a month to month lease, with 30 days notice to leave for either party. Simply because in my experience, this is often better with personal rentals. It protects us both (what if personalities don't match, what if schedules don't match, etc).

I am of course comfortable signing the rest of a standard lease, for things such as treating the house respectfully, paying rent on time, etc. It's merely the length that I like to be negotiable with.

And when I do find a home I like, I plan to stay there a long time. Preferably a year or more.

The month to month lease idea is not a deal-breaker, it's just preferred, and we can talk about it.

I’m just kind of loosely looking to move. I currently have a place that’s alright, but not a perfect fit. So I’m just putting an ad out there, in case the perfect situation pops up. I could potentially move in the next month or two, for the right place.

Renting from someplace furnished would be great, but is not 100% necessary. I don’t have a ton of furniture.

If emailing/texting goes well, then we can move on to a phone interview, and then meet in person.

Call, text, or email. My number is show contact info . My name is Ann. Heads up: I suck at checking email, I do check it occasionally, but not as often, so calling or texting is best.
You can leave a voicemail, but I don’t check those a ton either. Basically either catching me with a call at a convenient time or texting is best. :)

Thanks for reading. :)

P.S. Yes, I really am real. People have been asking me that. I am not a scam, haha.
I would include a picture of myself, but unfortunately there’s lots of weirdos on Craigslist and I don’t need anyone hitting on me. Lol.

I am just a nice person looking for a place to live. Call/text and I'll prove it. :)
