    A friend of mine

    Hi,

    There is a sentence.

    "I stayed with my roommate's friend."
    "I stayed with a friend of my roommate."

    Anything can be right?

    Also,

    "I stayed with a friend of mine"
    "I stayed with my friend"

    Can I use them interchangeably too?

    Thanks!

    Re: A friend of mine

    In both cases, the two are interchangeable.
