Anyone living alone? – What is it like?
I’ll be moving into a new place all alone for the first time in my life. I just wanted to see what its like. Is it good? Do you like the freedom? Does it get lonesome sometimes? I’d like to see what you all think, kindly list out the Pros and Cons for it. If you live alone or have at any point in your life, please share with us what its like.
i have lived alone for most of my adult life. then i lived with a boyfriend for about a year. now i live alone again.
the shock of being on my own again is wearing off, and i’m finding that i really enjoy having complete control of my personal surroundings. i can keep the place immaculately clean, blast music and cook until 2 am, watch/listen to whatever i want, talk obnoxiously on the phone with my girlfriends, try on 10 different outfits to find the one i want, etc. etc.
it is really quite nice to live completely according to your own rhythms. i bet you will enjoy it!
I believe it’s quite good to live alone until you are surrounded with friends and other people who you can meet occassionally. I live alone and currently have nobody to talk to (except for the weekends) so I’m about to move in a month, exactly because of this. Lived alone for 5 years, hasn’t been a pleasant state to be in. But I had no choice. Now I do so I’m taking action.
I’ve had my own place for about five years. I like it but it can get pretty boring. You have to have a lot of stuff around to keep you occupied or you’ll start to feel a little lonely and down.
I like that I can invite my girlfriend over and not have to worry about tiptoeing around the roommates. I like that I can sit around in my underwear all day if I want to.
I miss having roommates sometimes, but for me the cons outweigh the pros. You can completely do your own thing and not have to worry about sharing food or chores or the t.v.
