    I'm moving soon. After my girlfriend woes I am not moving in with her anymore (though we are still together).

    I have the option of living alone or with people starting at my work at the same time as me (graduate position). Been living at home for the last 2 years after uni and looking forward to it either way.

    Which do you reckon is better?

    Depends.

    How much do you masturbate?

    If the answer is A) a lot then live alone. If the answer is B) not a lot, then feel free to move into a shared house.

    Living with other people can be fun in student life riotous fun kind of way, and can be miserable in "OMG YOU'VE DRANK MY MILK AGAIN YOU UTTER BASTARD WHY DON'T YOU DO THE DISHES ONCE IN A WHILE AND FFS YOU ALWAYS LEAVE THE BATHROOM IN A MESS I HATE YOU BASTARD DIE DIE DIE!" kind of way.

    Well it wouldn't be a packed house, most likely just one other person, possibly two.

    It's amazing how packed a house can feel when you're getting on each other's tits ;)

    The milk thing. Just get some food dye and colour your milk with it.

    Or clearly label the bottle with a piece of masking tape, and a thick black marker - "MILK EXPERIMENT"

    This.

    Though I've never lived alone I'm not sure I'd like it, fairly sure I'd end up going stir crazy.

    Really comes down to how much you like spending time alone. I lived alone after moving out of home last year for 6 months and really liked it. Unfortunately the place itself was unsuitable for winter.

    Living with strangers can be a gamble, just imagine having to live with some off the weirdos off this place :p

    Currently enduring the latter.

    Alone. People that have read certain other threads might know why this is my answer.

    No more talking about it for me. No more sadness!

    If you can afford the rent, then definitely alone is better.

    It depends how mature you are. If you're not you'll live with people.

    The golden rule is NEVER EVER EVER move in with your "mates" if you want to stay friends with them. I've seen calm rational people move in together. Everything starts off peachily then someone leaves the washing up one night, and the downhill spiral starts. Soon you're defecating into their underwear drawer while they're on holiday, taking a dump in their fish tank and beating their parakeet to death with a newspaper then claiming that it died of bird flu when they come back.

    I'd say living alone. I wouldn't want to live with people I worked with as well. You'll be hating each other's tits in no time at all.

    Enjoy some living on your own time. Chances are you won't be able to do so all your life so take the opportunity and enjoy it.

    If you live with people then you'll always find that you're the only one who buys toilet paper in reasonable quantities and quality. Everyone else will only do so when it's absolutely run out, and then they'll only do it begrudgingly, and will only buy two rolls of the cheapest, sand-paper quality variety they can find.

    Khani's right. Put it this way - sharing a house with people, you have to get dressed every day. Having a place of your own, you can wallow in a pit of your own filth, naked as the day you were born, hurling abuse at people on Xbox Live while simultaneously watching streamed pornography and enjoying tasty junk-food snacks eaten straight out of their containers.

    This is so very true. Saw so many groups of mates end up despising each other after moving in with each other at uni...

    If you're moving in with other people, make sure you trust them. I got royally fucked over by a house mate in my first year of Uni, which ended up in all of us getting kicked out mid-term. One guy pissed up his loan, and decided not to pay his rent for 5 months. To make things worse, it was a joint tenancy agreement, so the other 3 of us who had been paid were very close to being taken to court over non-payment, even though we'd all paid our rent.

    It was an absolute fucking mess. Just be careful who you're getting in with...

    Hated, adored, never ignored.

    Heh, i've been pretty good with my one mate I live with...but for 2 years it's been with my girlfriend who i've spent most of my time with. Will be interesting now i'm not going to be living with her, and how my other friend moving in copes.

    Yeah but living alone is pretty lonely! And expensive.

    If you are young, living with other people is fantastic fun. Sure you may have arguements but it is a great way to meet new people and have a laugh.

    Trust me, I am normal. Not like these other internet users.

    Don't live with randoms unless they're hot chicks.

    If they are, you can do the old 'wanking ghost' trick: wear a white sheet every now and then and walk around the house at night going 'Woooooo...' and wanking.

    I moved in with three mates. Went well with only a few minor issues that as adults we could cope with. Then one got hitched, moved out with his girl and another friend took his place. This cunt reeked and was filthy. We'd have to ban him from coming up to the living room unless he stopped dodging the soap and preferably cut his feet off first. Still, it as actually funny and we had loads of good parties and the awesome sessions of C&C Generals the four of would have were talked about for years afterwards. We would even all decide to leave the club early and have ourselves a drugged up game instead.

    Still, it's a risky move. You could wind up losing your mind and a friend. And always - ALWAYS - beware of the flatmate whose girlfriend moves in with him. Unless you are very, very tolerant AND she cooks a lot it's time to move the fuck out.

    :D

    It did occur to me that asking this on a gaming forum may tend to give SLIGHLY skewed answers.

    Living with people CAN be fun, but all you need for it to go to shit is just one to be slightly dysfunctional and it all goes to hell. I've lived in shared houses which were great fun. I've lived in some that were not so great. I've seen some which have been terrible.

    I'd like to live with people. Probably not friends though.
