Theoretically one of three things could happen at some point over the next couple of weeks:
1) I move into a flat with a friend of mine.
2) I move into a flat with someone I've never met.
3) I move into a large, spacious house with four or five people I've never met (big enough for a fair amount of privacy but with a shared kitchen). I know nothing about them except people keep themselves to themselves and it's not a wild party house.
Have you ever tried any of these and which worked out the best? Clearly it all comes down to individual examples so any advice probably isn't going to really be helpful but I'd appreciate your thoughts nonetheless...
