Do any of you live alone?
I'm 23, just recently started a new job and I'm getting ready to move out on my own for the first time.
I have some potential roommates that are all kinda normie but something about living completely alone is alluring to me. Right now I live in a 1 bedroom apartment with my Mom, having downgraded from a 3 bed since my sister moved out and my Mom knows I want to move.
What's it like? I understand it financially but what does it feel like to actually live alone?
I lived alone for a week before the other guys arrived. It was bliss, less so with the others but we never spoke and avoided each other so it was mostly fine.
Just make sure your food is on point. My lack of eating really ruined me.
I go to sleep and wake up whenever I want, I can be on the computer and talking or listening to music out loud whenever I want, I can eat whatever and whenever I want, I can masturbate whenever I want, no one ever bothers me, I never have to talk to anyone, no one ever judges me or makes fun of me, I can study in peace at any time, no one breaks shit, or leaves dishes in the sink
gor my own place when i was 18.
it was weird for the first couple of months. it was hard to control myself, it was hard to maintain and keep the place clean.
but it eventrully felt good. walking around the house naked, staying up and playing loud music, doing whatever you want whenever you want.
my relationship with my parents vastly improved once i moved out. when i lived with them we constantly got into fights and what not, but then i moved, and we havent had a fight since.
I live alone
Overall I recommend it, but there are two major downsides:
1. It's difficult to cook for one, you usually have to make 2-4 portions and eat the same thing for days
2. It's reeeeeeaaaaaaly easy to develop a porn addiction
You will go through a phase of eating takeout every day and living in filth, it's natural, but after 6-18 months you will get over it and really grow as a person
It's incredible. There's such a difference when you're truly "the master in your castle" compared to when you have a roommate, even if you never see each other. That feeling of pure freedom is totally worth it, OP.
I've been on my own after I turned 16. Right now I have a roommate but I wish I still lived alone.
Living alone is nice if you have a social life, you can bring people over, not worry about who is there for dates and wear no pants in the living room. If you have no one you might find it lonely or a way for you to step out of your comfort zone and meet new people.
my real parents abandonded me.
i lived with foster paraents till i was 12.
then my aunt gave me a place of my own at 18.
ive been techically living alone since i was 18.
Pretty damn good. Just get used to doing your own shit like feeding yourself, paying bills and staying occupied because the hardcore isolation can set in and fuck with you if you are not ready for it. Then again, i live more than 600 miles away from my family.
Just dont be a bitch and suck it up / deal with it. you will be fine.
24. Live with my grandma
Its a love-hate ordeal. On one hand, its my home that I've lived at all my life and is comfy as fuck. No bills or anything.
On the other hand, I feel pathetic and probably won't have a gf because of it.
If you don't have a pet, it's pretty awful. I went through college with a ton of roommates, but I now have a job and live in a 1br in the city. I got so used to having people readily available to hang out that now it just feels lonely and depressing. I drink by myself and play with my cat a lot. It's also really expensive. Most of my friends with roommates live in way nicer places and pay less than I do.
I wouldn't recommend it, honestly. I'm trying to move into a house up here with some roommates once my current lease ends. The only real advantage is that you don't have to clean up other people's messes, but unless you're an OCD neatfreak faggot, that's absolutely not worth the loneliness.
I live alone well not really. I Guess I was always a loner had a shit childhood and shit parents ran away 2 years ago and that was the most important decision I've ever made some coworkers helped me find my own place and well Got a 2 bedroom apartment and have 2 roommates that I let live with me free of charge because I'm a lonely ass fuck and can't cope being alone. I mainly post MTG cards on ebay and boy do I have a fucking shitton of MTG cards. I hope to someday work for a gamestore doing what I do now selling shit online. Someday.
Yah I've resigned myself to being a permavirgin.
I wish I was in a bigger city instead of this small ass bumpkin town someday I will have my dream someday just gotta keep builiding up my hoard. my jew hoard someday. right now got over 11k worth of stuff listed on ebay but I wanna wait till I get like 15k-20k before I put myself on the market but>
Yah I'm chasing my dream mon I'm probably that guy that'll have a hoard of rare ass shit stashed in his home someday.
To have absolutely control over your space is a MUST,Anon. You don't want roommates. They steal,won't clean,won't pay their fair share of stuff,won't treat you fair when it comes to dealing with common areas.
Live alone. Feel lonely? Invite folk over. Then kick their asses out afterwards.
Honestly I'd prefer having roommates as geeky as me. to bad I live in a small ass town and those kinda people don't exist here. Had 2 come on go first one was a HARDCORE SC2 player was seriously grandmaster level but he was a fucking junkie who got hi off some fucking insanely potent spice and the police had to haul him off.
Second roommate was a hardcore anime nerd pretty cool he mods a group on facebook called Otaku Army got him a job at wal-mart where I work at he's pretty chill but he wanted to get his own house so he could start his own family.
Current roommate is well someone who doesn't really talk to that much he;'s always in his room or at work he used to play magic at FNM but he's really burned out I suppose.
I agree at having control over your own space. If you want roommates be the dominate person don't go trying to room with someone else as the world is fill of shitty normies be the person who chooses who gets to live with you not the other way around.
I've lived alone since I was 18 (minus the summer between my fresh and sophmore).
You don't have to worry about other people and their plans and needs so much.
You do have to take care of all of your own shit (buying groceries, cooking, laundry, utilities, bills, hooking up internet, basic home repairs, decorating, cleaning, dealing with the landlord etc. etc.) that you may or may not have dealt with in the past. You can also drink/smoke whatever more wherever, whenever if you're into that sort of thing.
But that's just part of being an adult.
More autonomy but more responsibility.
