I've been flat sharing since I was 18. I've always had my own room and secluded myself from time to time, but I always appreciated that there's someone at home who can take my mail or let me in if I accidently shut myself out or with whom I can calculate living costs, discuss issues in the house and share some foodstuff with, that'd just spoil if I bought it for myself. There's just something intrinsically reassuring about the fact that there's someone who'd hear you out if problems occur, because you're kind off in it together. It's also nice to know that there's someone who'd notice, if something medical happened to me. Problem is, as perfect as good roomies are (not to close but not to distant either), they are expected to leave your side and start their own life/family. The older you get, the more crazy involuntarily single people can become =D" Like, I think I'd be fine if I lived alone, but I'd fear that I'd socially isolate myself, which is something I really don't want. To much freetime and social isolation gives way to negative cognitive spirals. Roomies keep me grounded and offer distractions. They can also introduce me to new people. If I isolate myself, I'd further reduce my chances of ever meeting a few kindred souls IRL and while I said that I have zero hopes of meeting anyone, I don't really wanna give up looking either .___.
