Are you looking for a roommate? This guy is too. Hugh Podmore is moving to Toronto from downtown Montreal and he needs some roommates. If you live in Toronto, he just might be your guy.
The 22-year-old took the traditional route of posting an ad on Craigslist.
But decided to spice things up a bit.
His photos became an instant hit.
The album shot straight to the top of the page and got over 400 comments.
Who wouldn’t want an adventurous roommate?
Who is book smart.
And possibly street smart.
“I actually intended it to be a pretty normal Craigslist ad with the imgur thing just thrown in to spice it up,” Podmore said
“I was hoping that it would arouse the interest of some other like-minded individuals who might otherwise have only advertised their amazing apartment to their own circle of friends.”
So what have we learned? He’s a good cook (but not vegetarian), quiet (but social), and even doesn’t mind sharing food.
He loves karaoke and is up for “roommate bonding over pitchers and mediocre renditions of Queen.”
“I’m considering kicking my wife and kids out of the house just to make room for this guy!” wrote Reddit user section111.
“Mr. Podmore, if you ever, EVER come to Glasgow, Scotland then let me be your friend! You’re awesome! :3,” wrote user cinnamonkitsune.
User ckillgannon wrote: “You’re adorable. If you ever head down to the Sunshine State (Florida), beer’s on me.”
Podmore was “flabbergasted” by the reactions online, and made another album as a thank you to the Reddit community.
He was close to finally finding a place when user collocake made an offer, but Podmore said that someone else had beaten him to it.
When recently asked, Podmore still hadn’t nailed down a place, preferring to meet prospective roommates in person over the weekend. But he’s gotten lots of offers. “I haven’t been able to count because it’s been tough to find them all, but I would guess around 15 actual apartments that are within my price range and in the neighborhoods I’d like to live in,” said Podmore. “If you count people who are offering me a couch to crash on or a place to stay if I ever visit their hometown, then the number is much higher!”
