OMG: Is it bad if you're not living with friends? I know alot of people live with friends and I choose just to sublet a single room because 1) I don't really have anyone to rent a place with and 2) I enjoy my space. Just want to know if there's a stigma against living alone when in university.

  1. No, not at all. Some times you'll feel glad that you don't have to deal with all the drama that comes with having some roommates and no one will be stealing your food.

  2. Nope. I've never lived with my friends throughout uni, but I did become friends with those roommates I lived with. I liked the independence and quiet atmosphere. My friends also wanted to get high-end expensive apartments, which I thought was unnecessary. This of course doesn't necessarily work with everyone.

  3. I lived with people I didn't know because I wasn't close with the people I met first year. Afterwards, I rarely lived with friends because I worried it would hurt the friendship if house drama happened. I was fortunate and liked my roommates and usually became friends with them during the term. I think if you're starting your second year it may seem like everyone signed leases with their first year residence friends. I know I was always a bit nervous in second year when I told people that my roommates were 'randoms'. Looking back, I don't think there's really a stigma? A lot of people live alone or with strangers for a variety of reasons. The whole 4-months in and 4-months out with people subletting where they can may play into that.

  5. No reason to ruin friendships by living with your friends.

  6. I've lived with randos, with friends, and on my own during University. I've definitely liked living on my own the best! I enjoyed having my own space, and if I wanted friends over, I'd invite them over! No drama involved.

  7. I lived with complete strangers for 2 years now because I have no friend. In the end I and my roommates ignored each other but everything else worked fine.

  9. Alone is good. More quiet. When it's cold, you can shiver by yourself in the darkness.
