Not sure if you should live with flatmates? Here’s 6 reasons why you should.

You’re considering moving out. You’ve heard all the great party times your friends have had once they move out of home, the great memories they share with their flatmates and hey, now their even best friends with their flatmates. You’ve also most likely have heard many horror stories before about living with flatmates not working out, whether it’d be money, arguments, personality clashes and various other reasons.

You’re now thinking, “Hmm, should I or should I not live with flatmates? Is it me? Will I get along with them?”

Despite the positive and negatives experiences you will encounter, there is no better feeling (or though sometimes scary) or experience than moving out of home. Whilst experience of living out of home is an incredible experience, living with flatmates makes it a better experience. You will have the time of your life. Here are 6 reasons why you should certainly live with flatmates.

1. Time to get your diet in check

The great thing about having roommates is that they will keep reminding you to stop eating bad food!

3. You won’t ever clean by yourself

Cleaning by yourself sucks. At least you will never have to clean by yourself with flatmates. Those who clean together, stay together!

5. They force you to grow up

Loving with someone else, not by yourself or lving at home, will snap you out of your olf habits. You won’t be a great flatmate if you still drink straight from the milk bottle out of the fridge (man I hate when my roommate does that).
