I'd rather stay at home for the time being and save up cash for a down payment so I can have a place all to myself.
I totally understand, finding a roommate that you can deal with is tough. I do think having roommates prepares you for a lot of things in life though. You learn to have a bit more tolerance(or you don't learn and YOU are the asshole roommate haha) and get to see how others do things.
Your loud obnoxious roommate teaches you to sleep through the garbage truck going by
Your talkative roommate teaches you how to ignore your future wife during a football game(j/k...sorta)
Your messy roommate prepares you for children
