    I moved into a new flat over the summer and started to fancy a guy who I have been friends with for a few years that was just renting out a room for the summer. He has graduated and planned to move home after the summer. I had to go home for a few months and said he could stay a bit longer in my room. I've missed him the whole time I've been gone and we texted while I was away. When I went back for a weekend he told me he had liked me over the summer and we kissed. We also went out for drinks together. We haven't told the rest of the flat about any of this. I've gone back home again and he has said he's going to look for a flat so he can stay on in the same city but I dont know how to feel about all of this because he may be gone when i get back. I should be happy, its worked out exactly as I wanted but it's weird starting out with someone you've been living with. Any advice?

    Sounds like it's working out perfectly for you tbh.

    You've got the guy and you'll be living in the same city.

    I never dated anyone i lived with as friends so don't know how it would be but maybe someone else that replies will have.

    life is too short to worry about things like that, you have someone who you really like, just go for it, no point getting anxious about details and stopping yourself being happy. People end up together in much stranger ways than having lived together (wait, how is your situation even strange?). Just think, in 40 years when you're living alone with cats, none of this will even matter.
