Does this sound like the bad idea I think it sounds like?
My landlord asked if I would be his roommate. I said no. But I do need to lower my bills. So I have been reconsidering. He has two kids that live with him every weekend but they already come over and play in my yard on weekends, use my bathroom and try to play with my cat.
He is a nice guy, very polite well mannered and friendly. Truthfully any place to this one will be an upgrade.
He has almost flirted with me on occasion though I never encouraged and he always backed down without a word. We have a lot of similar interests but he is a morning person I am a night owl. Not so bad on week days. Ok there are days I still push it and go to bed late…and sometimes have time and enough not common sense to take a nap thus making my schedule worse. But on weekend he’s here at 8 or 9 messing around the yard. Sometimes that is around the time I am going to bed.
Also celiac and shared kitchen.. possible cross contamination plus no doubt temptation. Though I do quite well at resisting in public and am rewarded by feeling much better my home is safe completely g free down to my cookware. Gluten by nature is sticky and just sharing a cutting board or a colander that held pasta in it is enough to contaminate add kids into the mix and its a disaster. Or I could be melodramatic.
I do well alone. But then again with what’s going on in my life objectively I probably am getting too much of that. Being around people forces me to act like I’m not depressed. I will get more things done. And depression might fade as I get involved in other things and accomplish stuff.
In all honesty it has been a long time since I was a roommate. I either never found someone I was compatible with or am just not suited. The relationships where we cohabitated were slightly problematic as well but not as much. Probably because sex makes me much more amenable.
My car needs serious repairs soon I have medical bills and trips to Seattle and possibly new Mexico coming up health related so second job if I can still do it but this would really help.
