Is it better to move in with a stranger or a friend??

    • Thread Starter

    In terms of flatmate wise. Is it better to move in with a friend, someone you've known for a while and get along with or a stranger?

    ive technically lived with my best friend when we went on the paris exchange, lived with her for 9 hours a day for 1 week and frankly we told each other we were fed up of seeing each other. we're still friends btw.
    living with a stranger has its mystery, you dont know if theyre gonna rat poison ur food or get on your nerves. tbh living with your friend feels safer. but you should analyse the stranger first before moving in

    You never know what a stranger is like. They might be the most disgusting/annoying person you've ever seen but they could be the nicest person.

    With a friend, you already know what they're like and so you could put up with their bad habits, if they have any. Also the social aspect too, you'd get on better with someone you already know.
