Room for rent, 1st room, Middle Sunny, 10'x12'

July 12 2020
This Ad will be pulled down when it is filled or I NO longer offer the rooms.
DUE to COVID restrictions & challenges, I will still be considering applications in an attempt to establish positive, clear virtual communications virtually first, share our intentions BEFORE we ever meet-up.
My Priorities include respectful, responsible, reliability and one's ability to share honestly where you’re at in your own life/story/journey, including budgeting, but also in your resolve to positive goals. And willingness to share your track record that supports your professed integrity, trust and self-health.
Wellness is my professional and personal lifestyle. I will not simply "show" you my home. That is why there are photos.
At the appropriate time we can meet (in July). After we get past 'shelter-in-place' and have checked each others social media, including some virtual face-time conversations, when we mutually agree.
I’m in no rush. I desire a win win fit here.
Unfortunately due to the exposure some of us get at work, etc., I may just pull this AD
I live by faith. Be Well: 1 John 3:2

Please READ the whole AD, then, reply to the 3 initial questions listed to be considered, Thank you.
