>Mom enjoys me but thinks I should be living on my own at 23
>finally give in and become a part time office wagecuck to make her happy
I'm not exactly happy to be working but it's nice to not be dead broke all the time.
I can now afford to either live alone and have about $300/mo to spend after rent and bills, or live with roommates who are looking to get a 3 bedroom apartment and asked me. I'll have about $1000/mo to spend after rent and bills if I take that route.
Do you guys like living alone or with someone else more? I feel like I'd be genuinely happier living on my own but I don't want to be fucked if an emergency happens since I live in the land of no free healthcare.
Besides financial stuff, are there any actual disadvantages to living alone?
this is obv bait and fake but i'll bite.
>300$/month to live
nowhere near enough. a month is 30 days btw.
>part time office job paying enough for roommates and having $1000 surplus net pay after all bills
my ass, top kek.
>part-time paying anything substantial
I make $15.42 an hour working a set 29 hours a week at a college.
That's after taxes I take home around $1450 a month.
I said I'd have $300 a month AFTER rent and bills. If I were going for bait I wouldn't use such a fucking boring thread. I'd talk about eurocucks and muslims.
Go for the roommates only if you can be sure to have your own bedroom with a door so you can be alone if you want.
Be firm about your boundaries, write up a roommate agreement and you should be OK
I'm an introvert and was very concerned about living with roommates. Honestly the few friends I made after HS were all roommates pretty much. As long as you're selective and try to find people you might get along with it can be better than living alone.
was going to pass up this thread coz it seemed like shit, but fuck you, you made this with the intention of having a roommate, there was literally 0 reason to post this here because its obvious you're looking for advantages to having a room mate. fuck off
I do the living on my own with about 300 to spend, its pretty rough lad. Doable but rough, you'll be living paycheck to paycheck and there won't be much room for having "emergency" money. In my case I lost my smartphone and now imma have to wait a while to get another one and as of right now I have 20 bucks to use for the upcoming week which is honestly enough for food but god forbid I need to use it in some other way.
Get the roommates. The less you have to burden yourself, the better. As long as you guys set boundaries and shit right from the get-go, you won't have to worry about them getting all up in your stuff like most of these guys are trying to argue. Being on your own is great and all, but if you can actually tolerate people enough to even consider roommates, you should room with them. You'll have your own room, and you have a lot of cash to just fuck around with or save up. Fiscally speaking, it's the more sound option if you want to indulge in hobbies that cost money like gaming or drinking or reading books that aren't from the library. It's also the more sound option if you're looking to save up for something like a car or school or whatever the fuck else you want to pay for that you'd have a hard time saving for.
Also, that emergency money. You'll be fucking glad when something retarded happens to your shit, or you get hurt or sick, and you need a good amount of money right away. Plus, if you decide that you actually don't like living with roomies that much, or at least those particular people, then you just saved a ton of fucking money and you can just move the fuck out without much worry because you've got cash saved up.
