Roommates – How an awesome friendship can end up being a disaster

You have talked with your best friend so many times about how it would be fantastic that you two can be in the same apartment. Well you do share so many things, you laugh with the same jokes, you have supported each other so many times. After all these conversations and plans, you finally find this pretty apartment with all the comforts you need and you are ready for epic nights of fun. The first 2 months everything seems to be fine but a bit uncomfortable sometimes. She doesn’t dry her feet when she comes out of the bathroom, therefore you find water all over the floor. After being done with dinner, she will never wash the dishes. The bills give her a headache so she expects you to deal with it and her only give you the money. The worst is when she has issues with money and considers it normal for you to pay everything. Has a real nightmare just started? Your friend is not what you thought she is? What happened to her? What happened to you?

Every night before you sleep, you keep thinking about all these questions but you realize that it was not her decision, you both agreed on being roommates. You want to have a fight with her cos she’s your best friend. Now what? Well your friendship is being tested like a boyfriend – girlfriend relationship. You live in the same place which means that there should be some rules so as everything works fine. Have a schedule for what you both need, for example no intimate moments with your boyfriend in your bedroom when she’s in the apartment. Don’t make the rules by giving each other the look “i know that you are gonna do it and this rule is for you” cos in the end you will end up fighting and damaging your friendship. Keep the connection you had before you move in together, talk about things you love, about your issues and make that bond between you stronger. You should feel lucky for having each other, don’t let routine ruin your friendship!
