While Seattle has many things going for it, one negative stereotype that follows the city is the 'Seattle Freeze.' If you're not familiar with the phrase, it's the idea that meeting friends and dating is hard in Seattle, especially for transplants that don't already have established relationships.
One of the best ways to combat the Freeze is coliving. It puts you in the position of making friends and connections faster than you would in any other environment except for maybe work or church. As Jade, a member of Treehouse in California said, "it's more like 60 friends than 60 roommates or neighbors.
