I'm such a masisve pussy. Is it acceptable to do this by e-mail?
seemed fair enough to me
not just an 'i'm moving out, bye!'
Just tell them face to face.
If it is going to come as a shock, face to face is the only way. It's respectful.
It is a horrible thing to bring up, but talking about it in real time means thoughts and feelings can be addressed instantly and you'll feel a lot better in the long run.
Imagine pressing 'Send' and then not getting a reply, or worse still, your flatmate not mentioning it when you see them around the house/flat? Not pleasant!
I wouldn't mind getting an email from my flatmate saying they were off
But things have been a bit tense - mostly due to her love of bringing half of East London back to the flat for all weekend parties. But I'm moving out cause I'm moving in with the missus, I don't want it to come off as "I've had enough of you"
that the primary reason for moving is that you want to move in with your girlfriend.
You've even got a ready-made excuse here - you've been whipped into domestication. I don't see any problem here.
Don't make me post the Harden The Fuck Up video
This will also sound massively gay, but want to watch the Lions game at Glasto?
And Glasto, for sure. Although it's looking like a clash with the EODM/Spinal Tap double header though - if the Lions win the first match I'll definitely be watching the game - if they get savaged in the first test it might be a harder choice.
going to meet someone from the internetz?
Natural progression, innit?
Where are you two moving to?
Isn't that going to be strain on the bathroom?
and our timeschedules have pretty much never clashed so it's not a problem at the moment! and he's there all the time anyway. ideally i spose it'd be easier for me to move to his, but his rent and bills are so astronomical i wouldn't be saving any money at all. i'd probably be paying more.
Now I expect a new 'how do we split the bills/rent' type thread when he moves in, though.
So we still save money but my additional presence is compensated.
Although I'm an energy saving presence in their house anyways as I turn the lights off
So not really
your flatmate to your new abode
are you moving out cos of them or for other reasons? Either way, best to just say 'look im moving out' to give them time to look for a replacement.
and tell her you're moving in with your girlfriend as you want to 'take the next step', or something gay like that.
In my last flat, my flatmate texted me as I was on the bus to the airport to go away for a weekend to tell me he planned to move out like a week later. I had to tell him that a week's notice wasn't really on, and then it all got a bit awkward when I got home on Monday :(
You should have been livid and they should have been contrite.
I'd got ready to be all mad but then he apologised for being a mong and I hadn't really planned on that :D
It ended up being a massive pain though, because then the girl who lived there found out she needed to move for work, so the night before going to Thailand for 3 weeks I get told that either they get randoms to move in while I'm away, or I move out as well.. so I gave my notice on the flat as well, went to Thailand, spent more time worrying about it than I should've done, got caught up in the protests and then got back and had 3 days to find a new place to live and move into it :-/ thankfully a couple of mates gave me the option of staying with them, so I just moved stuff to theirs while looking for another room. I found a flat in those few days and, weirdly, this is probably the happiest I've been in a house since I've moved down to Nottingham :)
or the price your mate lets you have the room at? :D
My flatmate is my best friend though...I dont know how to do it, but I hate my flat.
We're on a months notice, no contracts as the landlord is a friend of ours. I really dont wanna screw him over, but at the same time, I really really hate wood green.
The landlord is her dad. So I don't want to paste them at all, so I'm trying to give about a month and a half's notice.
But then it's her birthday this weekend, then it's Glastonbury, and I don't want any of these events to get soured
I'm assuming thats all your contract says you're required to give too?
we've been there 2 months havent even got any internet sorted out, not sure if council tax is sorted out..So my name isnt on anything yet, so surely its a good time to get out now? I'm gonna give about the same notice also... I just fear the wrath!
s'what I did (not really)
You: 4 weeks.
You: I'm in love with you.
You: 8===D~~ ?
Find a replacement flatmate for yourself on Gumtree and arrange a day for them to move in.
Sneak out that morning with all your stuff. If you're caught just say, "Oh hey, I'm moving out. The new flat mate's arriving in a few hours. See ya!"
I moderately feel your pain. I'm moving to a new flat in 3 weeks and won't be living with my best buds any more. Nowt acrimonious though.
Incidentally, I'm moving to a flat more or less on top of Nandos. Isn't that where Sarah used to live?
The flat is actually above the weird little social club/cafe next to the Nandos.
when we were students, and for two years their clothes smelt like kebabs because the floor boards were so old and their bedrooms directly over the kitchen, so their clothes cupboards were essentially smoke chambers.
It never stopped being funny.
is overwhelming me
The whole bar is roasting and smells of steamed pine.
well, no ours was on TOP on Nandos. you must be in the one next door. is your entrance a door on Loftus road? To get to ours you had to go through an alley way and through the backyard of Nandos and up some iron stairs.
It's ridiculous really, I'm moving literally 1 minute down the road
i loved living there :)
the shop across the road is great, they used to let me off paying sometimes if i was short of money. :)
though, i never saw the occupants of that flat on their roof. is there an easily openable window?
but I'm pretty sure you could get out on to it if you wanted. Quite looking forward to moving in really, just a shame that paying the deposit has left me financially crippled for the entire summer.
and drag ourselves out. always put your leg out first. good BBQ times though. even with the traffic noise. :)
Move to the Bush once you have a deposit. I can't wait to climb on to my roof and hurl eggs at Newcastle supporters when they fail to get promoted at QPR on the last day of the season.
I'm gutted Newcastle away is on a Tuesday. I'd have been well up for some hooliganism
I've needed to do it for a month or so
why are people scared of face to face stuff on here. its crazy.
not cos I dislike them or anything, it's just that our lifestyles are so different I can go days without seeing any of them and I'm intrigued to see how long it would take them to notice.
Really loudly in the doorway and do a runner.
I was brave and told my flatmate/best friend I would be moving out in six months, rather than a year. She looked a bit annoyed for like one day. Then about a week later she struck a deal with me when I would move out in 8 months instead. I did that, because I was a pussy and it didn't bother me that much. She'd have been a bit livid if it was a month though I think, but yeah, do it in person.
So 1 month is plenty of notice
