Please, I need your opinions on this. - November 6th 2009, 03:15 AM

I think I found a possible roommate so I can finially move away from my parents. She is older than me, about 25 years, she has a daughter but she says that she keeps to herselfs. She is going through some tough times. We both make hardly nothing. We have a lot in common though. (I always seemed to be able to get along with people older than me than with people my own age) I'm not sure if I should move in with her or not. What do you guys think?


Some say the world will end in fire Some say in ice
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire
But if it had to perish twice
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great And would suffice.

Do you like her? and most importantly do you trust her? You've got to know that she'll pay her rent and not scrounge of you. If she irritates you you can always stay in your room for a bit, but if she doesn't pay her rent it makes everything more awkward for you.

How old is she? Is she 25 years old or 25 years older than you? I'm a little confused on that part.

If you want to live with her and feel that you can afford it, then I think you should go for it.

To be honest I'd be inclined not to move in with her... If you both make barely nothing, what happens if she loses any form of income? You'll be stuck paying the bills.

hmm.. she's 25 years older than you?. idk why, but my instinct would be to say no to moving in with her. i know age shouldn't make a difference.. but it just, does?.

..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..

Hey there =]
Personally, I wouldn't move in with this person. Someone who is THAT much older than you probably has different interests and a completely different lifestyle. Plus, I agree with Lee, if she looses income, you have to pull her weight... which won't be so much fun. Also, if the kid is little, they can be quite a nuisance. I would wait and see what your other options are.
