Meet Hazel and Kelly …..
Kelly is a homeowner in a unique area of Ontario….Manitoulin Island. You need to take a ferry to get to her beautiful home. Hazel is an active 70-something woman, with a positive outlook and a passion for gardening. They met here on this website and started to chat about living together. Then, Hazel drove up (a 6-hour drive) to stay with Kelly for 3 days to see how compatible they were. The visit went really well, and they decided that Hazel would move in. Now, they are enjoying some new traditions together, like a campfire once a week and Sunday night dinners together. Hazel is thoroughly enjoying getting her hands dirty pulling weeds from the garden. What is their advice for finding compatible homemates and creating a shared living home together? They said, “Get out of your comfort zone and take a chance. Be honest and be prepared to communicate honestly.” Hazel added, “But I could write a book on how not to move.” Considering that on her own she rented a UHaul and moved her belongings/furniture to her new home….plus has at least 2 more trips to make, we are quite certain that her book would be full of great advice.

Meet Ann, Carol and Jayne ….. (picture of them coming soon)
Jayne and Carol met in our Facebook group and decided to live together but they wanted a third woman to make it affordable. Partially by chance, Jayne met Ann who was excited to live with other senior women. On her own, Jayne was able to find a house to rent in Peterborough that had the space they needed/wanted but naturally, in the current rental market, everything had to be completed quickly. So, Jayne moved in first, with Ann and Carol joining her about a month later. “We actually never met each other face-to-face until we signed the lease” said Jayne. They all agreed that the better way is to spend more time together first and then enjoy the experience of finding a house together. They did complete a homemate agreement, though, and they are all hopeful about their future.

Meet Brenda and Michelle ….
On May 1, 2022 Brenda and Michelle started living together in a 2-bedroom apartment. They met here on this website in February, began by messaging each other and then started meeting in person. They initially noticed they had a lot in common, particularly their love of dogs. Then, they noticed they have the same sense of humour and similar views about shared living. Brenda said, “We just clicked”.When I asked if they had any concerns about living together, they both agreed that if problems arose, they felt confident they could work things out. Michelle said, “We’re both grown ups after all.” They very wisely completed a homemate agreement prior to living together, so they have set themselves up for long-term success. 

Meet Jana and Maribeth …..
When these two delightful women met, Jana lived in Etobicoke and Maribeth lived in Brampton, so it required persistence and planning for them to get together. Maribeth said, “We are really very different from each other. It might seem like we should be more alike to make shared living work but we have found just the opposite is true.” Jana agreed and added, “We are compatible and happy together, even though very different. We respect each other and there is no awkwardness between us. We learn from each other.” In April, 2022 they moved into a two bedroom, one bathroom apartment and aside from the financial benefits, they are both thrilled to have the social support. Although living together, they still live pretty separate lives overall. Yet, Maribeth talked about having been away for about a month and when she returned Jana welcomed her back with a big smile and a warm hug. Maribeth said, “You can’t buy that kind of thing.”
