I'm gonna move back to where i went uni soon (Birmingham) as i can't stand living with my parents any longer, i can't decide whether to get a flat on my own or find some random stnuc to share a house with.

At the moment getting some shit studio flat on my own is the most appealing option as generally i don't like people although i'm not sure whether i would get lonely.

Do you guys live with other people or on your own? Pros and cons you have found about living on your own?

If you like your own company and get shit done alone then live by yourself.

this has to be a sitcom. newly divorced dad moves in with you on campus so he can rediscover his lost youth.

i live by myslef and its great. shared houses with mates before which is awsome but you get to a certain age wher u cant be bothered to tidy up after your messiest friend and split bills etc etc.
its much more expnsive but if you can afford it having the space is great, plus its a good way to have my gf over and see what its like with just us living together for a week, like a dry run for if we ever move in togther

depends on ur age i guess

Yeah i think i'll probably find a place on my own, i shared a house for 3 years at uni and even though i was living with a good mate for most of it i always felt like i would have preferred being on my own.

Tbh the cost doesn't seem too bad, from just this morning of looking i can find a smallish studio flat in the place i want to live for like £5-600 bills included.

My brother and two good friends. Great deal really.
Lived on my own for about half a year too, didn't mind that.

Imo

you need either a very strict woman that bosses you around for a few years

or

some cat like m8 that would turn your frown upside brown

I'm staying at my girlfriends parents rent-free so I can save up money to move out with some mates.

Renting in Brighton is so expensive that unless you have a quite well paying job living alone isn't an option unless you want to have zero disposable income.

I'm living alone right now, which is mainly doable because I'm living in Madrid and I'm probably paying about a third of what I would be paying for the flat I'm in if it was in the UK.

Moved out at 18. Would recommend.

If you're over 25 and still living at home, you've pretty much failed at life.

no no.. but I mean, I think it would help someone that might have depressive tendencies is all.
Don't want to condescend or talk out of line here just a thought eh.

Yeah i know what you mean and i appreciate it!

That is my main worry of living on my own, like it is appealing now but maybe living with other people keeps me from going completely off the edge.

To indulge in my narcissism for a minute, what i am struggling with in my life at the moment is distinguishing between what would genuinely benefit me and what i just think is a good idea in my current circumstances. I suppose you can only learn by doing.

You realize you completely ruin your fine suggestion by a being a dick right?

Not only that, but it's fucking well common in Spain where you just lived for a bit.

Yes definitely and you're so smart it can only stick.
Get some experiences in the bank and then five minutes in, a crying baby will probably come knocking on your door- thats usually how it goes :6:

Just saying loneliness is super dangerous. And it goes down much quicker than one would imagine.
