We’ve all heard advice telling us not to live with our besties. They say it’ll ruin friendships and spell disaster, even if you’ve been close for years. For some, this may be true; opposites attract, and your style of living might not match up with theirs. But for others, renting an apartment with your best friend can be one of the best decisions you’ll ever make. If you aren’t convinced, read on.
Maybe don’t share everything, because assuming you can eat their food without asking is spelling disaster before it even arrives. But sharing space, decor and time together is something that will lift your spirits. It can get pretty lonely when you live alone, and there won’t be anyone to talk to. But with a best friend, you’ll always have someone who understands you. Share ideas. Share the rent and the price of that couch you both want. It’s helpful financially, but also emotionally.
A Constant Sleepover
Sleepovers are always an excellent part of everyone’s childhood memories. They were fun back then, and they haven’t stopped being fun just because you’re older. But the very best part of this is that, at the end of the night, you can go back to your own room and your own bed. Keep in mind that alone time is essential when you have this kind of arrangement. A perfect balance between being alone and being together is what’ll make this time successful.
You’ll Get Closer
After you’ve been sharing everything for a few months, and after you see each other every day, it becomes harder to part with one another. Homesickness becomes missing the one person you feel closest to. Spending time with your significant other is great, but it can’t compare to the comfort and safety of coming home to your best friend.
