All I can say is don't try to find new roommates on Craigslist.... Never works out
It can work out. I found a great roommate on Craigslist who lived with me for a year and through her I met my second roommate who has been with me the past year and will stay with me for at least another. You just have to ward off the creeps and spammers, and through perseverance can find the right person to be your roommate.
I've found a new household on Craigslist 3 times, each within a few days. I've brought aboard new roommates twice, each within a couple days (I've had great longevity at each of these places and roommates, at least a year each). There are always other people just as desperate, if not more so, than OP. Craigslist is a fine resource. I've also gotten 3 jobs using it, the last of which I've happily been at for almost 4 years now.
You could ask if you could move in with them, if not then good luck finding new roommates.
