    I'm pretty certain most will understand what I mean. I'm just listening to some friends talking about who they plan on sharing with...

    Which would you consider is more important when it comes to deciding on who to live with?
    What sort of things do end up being a problem? Being messy etc.

    I think both have to work well together. I've seen people get on well living together despite not being friends, and friendships lessened by bad compatibility in the living environment.

    Next year, I'll be living with my best friend. Though I'm a little nervous, I'm a very tidy, organised, maternal person, and I know I'll keep the place tidy giving him plenty of chance to relax, so I think that'll work well. If I wasn't so happy to do the tidying, I could see us clashing despite being the closest people ever.

    I think it depends, you have to be able to be friendly enough with someone that you can get on for at least a year living together without killing each other but you don't have to be best friends to be able to live with someone.

    I moved in with my 3 best friends and we are loving it, but I think it is because we are so close that we get on so well, we are good enough friends to not have to have the house as tidy as a show home, but if it gets too messy then nobody has a problem telling everyone to get off their @rse and tidy up ... and we all just work together because I am the clean freak so do a lot of the cleaning but nobody is a total slob so everyone tidies up after themselves and pitches in when they need to.

    Yeah...this is hard to figure out. Also being in halls wiith people can be entirely different from sharing a house and a kitchen etc with them.

    People being messy has always been the main problem in my houses. 2nd year i lived with people i didn't know very well, and it was annoying, this year i live with friends and it's still really annoying (and messier)

    I'd say it's easier to put up with when it's your friends being messy, but i'm not sure it's true - You kinda hope that your friends will take account of your feelings more than people you don't know well.
