Recently there was an article about how there is a higher number of people are living alone in the recent census. I thought that was interesting and not something that was unusual. I recently begun living alone again when the roommate I had moved out of the country for work. I have lived alone on and off since I finished college. I have had some great roommates and some I wish they had not been my roommates. I find that when I have a roommate that gels with me it is a great experience and when it doesn’t gel it is painful.
Now living alone has a lot of advantages some we may not think of right away but here are a few I have come up with. One you have more space in the kitchen cabinets. With a roommate you have to share common spaces like kitchens when you have two people using the space there is not always the space for you to have what you want. A second advantage is that you have more personal space. What I mean is that you can walk around naked if you want and other items like that.
Now I am sure there are other advantages and there are also disadvantage and I will not get into that.
