It’s a completely understandable urge to want to live with your best friend. But, ironically, it can be a disastrous decision because they’re your best friend.
Think about it. You care so much about your best friend. Would you be willing to confront them with a house problem if you needed to? Or might you find yourself trying to shrug it off because you don’t want to hurt their feelings? If you choose the latter, what will ultimately happen is your frustration with your friend will mount, while you remain silent. As your friend commits other faux pas, you’ll become a ticking time bomb, and continuously get closer to an explosion. And once that happens, the conflict will be as challenging as anything you’ve faced together.
Another drawback is that if you live with your best friend, you might be less inclined to meet other people and potentially make new friends. Your comfort level with your bestie has long been established. With unlimited access to them, it’ll be really easy for you to turn to them for entertainment when you’re bored. You’ll either go out with them or just binge-watch a show on Netflix. And if you choose to go out with someone else without them, leaving them home alone with only Netflix to comfort them, it’s definitely possible for there to be some hard feelings on their part.
