We all live through various phases of life with different kinds of people. After parents, it is generally a roommate and a life partner after that. While there may be episodes in your life when you live alone, it is only after a roommate moves out that you face life as an adult for the first time. And with every first time comes fears of living alone as an adult. So here are a few to pin down. Let us know if you have more.
If it is an apartment you have moved into, chances are it gets pretty scary after a horror movie screening. Wrapping the blanket or hugging your pillow may give some relief but when it is time to step out of bed for a bathroom break, the dining room lamp simply creates monsters on the wall making you crawl back in to bed and wait for sunrise.
After several trials you have finally mastered the tangy white sauce for pasta you saw on a pop-up video on Facebook but the downside of living alone is that there is no one to praise your new skills. No matter how good or bad you are at cooking, seeing you roommate devour your instant noodles after a long day at work beats no satisfaction.
If you are the kind of person who needs assurances from another on your attire before you step out for a date, then chances are your first feedback was given by your roommate. When living alone, you will either have to make do with pictures sent or just be confident enough to wear something red on your first date.
While we all crave human presence as social beings, living alone also comes with its own perks including having the privilege of being able to listen to whichever music you want on your loudspeakers without any fear of being judged. So while you have lived life with a roommate now is your time to experience life without one.
