Who does, is it ok or just boring?
It was amazing.
i only did it for a few months, best few months of my life. i wish i could afford it (or didnt have a girlfriend).
even if I don't have no time for no monkey business.
sitting around semi-naked, playing music loud, rocking out, muttering to yourself etc.
Tip: keep rotating one plate, one bowl, one mug, one knife etc. to save on washing up
It does enable you to live how you think that you should.
It was for the best
It was bloody brilliant. I miffled about it for ages before thinkng that I would hate it, but when I did it it was so amazing. Exactly as the chap above says. Coronation Street in your pants? Fuck yeah.
And also, winningly, the ladies love it. I mean that quite genuinely. You will triple the chances of doing kissing, i swear.
but i imagine you would have to rotate them really quick to get the dirt to fly off, probably not possible
if I didn't live with my girlfriend. Housesharing is generally hideous.
I've never done it. I quite like having a flatmate though, I think I'd prefer to live with someone else. I'd only spend a lot more of my time at the pub if I didn't.
I would have thought you get more time for monkey business.
it was fucking brilliant.
Although living with someone is better overall, I enjoyed it!
I've been doing it for about 9 months now and had two periods of about a year living on my own before that (interspersed with two periods of about a year living with one other person in a non-relationship sense)
I think on balance I prefer living on my own. Obviously it can be solitary at times (but I tend to be out quite a lot anyway) but the practical benefits outweigh the disadvantages.
until my girlfriend came back from uni for the summer and now i really miss it.
if you can afford it, it's the best.
so I practically live on my own, since I spend most of my time in my room.
Whilst my current living arrangements are shit I would say living on your own can be pretty good - you don't have any housemates to get wound up about and you can leave the place in pretty much whatever state you please.
My aim for the next few months is to get another job and get a one-bed flat I can pimp out into the ultimate bachelor pad. In reality all this means is that it'll have my old PS2 and a big telly, but that'll do for me.
entire house themselves rather than a flat?
but this was about 8/9 years ago, in a vilage in middle of nowhere so it was dead cheap. About £275 a month if I recollect correctly
this as i want a place i can play drums lots in and its about £700pm for anything decent.
on a two bedroomed flat (over two floors though, so spacious), and it's perfect for playing drums, my room will have no no adjoining neighbours at all (the only connected room will be our bathroom below).
Only £500 per month ?!
no one above or below either? :S
no-one above, no-one at either side, and below is just another part of our flat!
Can't wait, just over a week til I move in!
for almost 2 weeks, and I'm stuck in the middle of the countryside where the weather is miserable and I'm slightly concerned at how housewifey I'm becoming to stop myself going insane with boredom. I DON'T LIKE IT
it would mean that I wouldn't have to think about anybody but myself, which is always a good thing.
it definitely has its benefits but I have been single for roughly a year now and I want a girl, it does get lonely from time to time.
Living with people - especially ones you don't know in a flatshare SUCKS!
I have had so many bad experiences and the last was a pathetic threat from a pathetic loser who thinks he knows all these bad characters and text me yesterday in the worst English possible saying: 'If I was you I would avoid London'
Really? well if I WERE you, I would learn to threaten without sounding like a complete MORON!
ooooooooooooooooooooo kay ;)
where u living now?
Cheaper. Much cheaper. I can actually afford to live on my own.
That last flatshare fiasco was the last straw - living with strangers who have serious mental health issues and major coke habits really I can do without.
i lived in nottingham for a few year and that was good. Not so sure id want to live near birmingham thou...
where bouts ?
which onkly just ended this weekend when I moved back into a shared house.
It's the bathroom situation I'm finding hardest to adjust to, and also having to wear my clothes for longer
i really like it (most of the time).
but i think that's a downside of living in a city where you're not really allowed much dignity in living space.
I imagine I'd really enjoy it. I like my own company and I don't think I'd get too lonely.
If I was able to keep my dog, it'd be perfect.
until my girlfriend and housemate move in properly. Its OK, and at times really nice, but ultimately I prefer company
until recently. it was actually surprisingly ok. i was expecting to go semi-insane.
it was good for a year or so, then I got a bit bored
as it stands though, I'm about to move into a place with one of my best friends, but thankfully it's spacious enough to not get claustrophobic, and he works nights, so there will be a good mix of time when we're both in, and time alone.
Cheap rent too for how spacious it is, £500 a month for the whole place. To get a tiny one bedroomed flat round here costs at least £425 (unless I live miles away from anywhere in the countryside).
