    I live in NYC, so I couldn’t afford to live alone for YEARS.  When I finally got my own studio, it was bliss.  I met my Fiance, 3 months after I got my own place.  I only got to live in my apartment for 2 years.  I really miss living alone.  I love Fiance, but my goodness the boy is messy!!!!

    • Wedding: May 2019

    1.5 years total. I had my very own apartment for a year, and then moved in with my then boyfriend into a new apartment. We broke up about 5 months into our lease, so I transferred to a small unit in my building for the remaining 7 months of the lease. So the second time living alone was by circumstance- but it was wonderful! My little apartment became my bachelorette pad, and I met my current SO while living there.

     

    Actually- it was my current SO that helped me move out of my ex’s place into that small unit… Turns out tinder is a great last minute resource when you need someone to help you move.

    I lived alone about four years (well, with the cats I’ve had since college) and LOVED it. The only thing was when I woke up paranoid that someone had broken into the house, there was no one else to wake up to help defeat the (never there) intruder. Also getting rid of your own spiders sucks.
