Does moving in with a friend ruin the friendship?
    #7002965 - 06/03/07 01:32 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

I will be moving very soon. I have the opportunity to continue to have my own place or to move in with a good friend (he's probably my best friend). I've never lived with a friend before. I've only ever lived by myself or with a girlfriend. I'm kind of scared that being in such close proximity to each other will cause stress and make us not like each much anymore.

Anybody have any thoughts?

Yes, it will for the most part. If it doesn't ruin the friendship it will probably put a strain on it. You never really know somebody until you have to live with their irresponsible, sloven ass.

Yeah...I was dreading the slovenly part. My friend is a pig and I'm all neat and shit. My place looks like it could be pictured in an IKEA catalog or something. Meanwhile he has absolutely no furniture or anything to contribute to the household.

i completely agree. ur best bet is to stay where u are. living with friends do not work. especially if ur used to livin alone then u probly wouldnt like living with ur best friend. i lived with a few of my friends and i still talk to a couple of them and one of them i want to bury alive. so i would say not a good idea.

Damn, the more I think about it the worse of an idea it seems. I have nice stuff and he has nothing. I have impeccable credit and he is often broke and in debt. I am neat and he is a slob. I am responsible and he is not. We are both drunks and I think that living together will exacerbate that.

But, at the same time there will be some wild and crazy times which may make up for all of the bad stuff. I'm really torn.

i've lived with friends and girlfriends...

it's only a bad situation if there are bad parts to the mixture (i.e. bad friends, bad girlfriends, bad you).

each situation is different, but yours sounds like it wouldn't be too great, since he's a slob and you're a neat freak (ive been in that situation, had to move out)

Yeah, I mean just to answer the original question, "Will living with a friend ruin the relationship?' the answer is Not necessarily, but it depends very heavily on the people involved. There has to be respect for what each party wants and the people have to be capable of living in a way that makes the other comfortable. Does not sound like your friend and you are a good match, so it very well might. The only thing that might save the friendship would be to sign a short lease, like six months

Do it. I've never regretted living with some of my better friends even when it got a little tense. That always happens when you live with somebody anyway. Can't be avoided. You just avoid each other for a few days and then your getting drunk on the steps again.....Unless money or women are involved

The money thing might be a problem. I would have to pay a larger share of the bills than him (but I get choice of the best bedroom and I have final say on stuff). Also, I could see him fucking up and not being able to pay his bills.

If he has never rented out an apartment before, I wouldn't want to be the one to break him into that responsibility.

If he has, I would say you need to give your friend more credit unless he is a walking fuck up

Ask yourself if in 8 months he does fuck up and you guys have to move out, would the previous 8 months have been worth it?

He has rented apartments before. He lives with his parents now.

He is just such a fuckup though. He owes money to the credit card and the local magistrate. He makes good money but he blows it all on dumb shit instead of taking care of important stuff.

That's it...I'm not moving in with him.

I refuse to clean up after myself, let alone another dude.

I had a roomate once. Dishes stacked up in the sink. We ended up throwing them away because fuzz grew on them. Had to buy new ones.

Never again.

Thank god for the wife that picks up after me.

Don't do it. I have a similar situation where I'm clean/organized and my friend makes most of the messes (dishes, shit on the toilet, garbage) and almost never cleans them up. I also did a calculation recently and he uses 91% of the tp in the apartment and buys 0%. Based on your current opinions of this guy, you'll end up thinking less of him if you two move in.

Well, I just called him and told him that I wanted to continue living with myself. He understood and everything's cool.

I have been living without a roommate for the first time ever as of 6 months ago. I will NEVER go back. Especially with some of my best friends. I find many of them are great for hanging out with once or twice a week, but damn do they get on my nerves when I come home from a long day of work and just want to watch tv and pass out on the couch.
