I lived alone for almost 6 months now and loving it. Downside is gastos lang talaga, but who cares, I love my freedom. I get to cook, rant my own cooking, watch my fave movies in dvd. I can just lie in my bed whole day without someone bugging me to clean my room, do the dishes or whatever.. I wouldnt trade this set up with all the money that I can save should I live with other people.. (malayo nga lang sa work ko--)

I've tasted the soloist lifestyle for more than two years...and I can say I've learned a lot...it really built my character. I did my own grocery, washed my clothes, cooked my food, cleaned the house...etc.

Now I'm back in my family domain...and I don't want to trade this...yet.

since when im 17 im almost living alone....(lets put it in this way para akong walang family na wala silang pakialam) heheh

then when im 18 nag solo flight na talaga ako (stokwa)

then ayun palipat lipat po ng haus..

but right now sa apartment ko almost 4 yerz na pala ako....

well mahirap sa simula kasi you need to cook (or else wala kang kkainin),do the laudry, clean the haus,obligation for the bills,andun na malungkot din ang mag isa.....but on the other hand ayos din kasi you cn do watever you want but in my case nadisiplina ko rin ang sarili ko....

yeah...been living on my own in a condo...almost 7 years na pala...

love the independence...though yah magastos to be on your own...but at least im responsible for myself and answerable to no one...

but there were several times wherein i had a sort of live-in arrangements with my then gfs...3 instances actually...but only short periods...

depends on where you are...

if you are working abroad i would say it is better to be staying with other people. it is better to have a support system, just in case you are sick, get into an accident, for example there will be someone who can help you out.

if you are here in the philippines, living alone gives you time for yourself. and at the same time, you can still visit your family when you need to.

i lived alone for over a year while i was working in the states, and more than anything i learned to handle money. but it also good that i learned how to cook, pay my own bills, take myself to the doctor, etc. it made the transition into married life easier too because i didn't get shocked by the additional responsibility. kasi nga if you can't take care of yourself what more another person, di ba?

dati iniisip ko kung one day, umalis na kami sa bahay ng tita ko at tumira nalang somewhere..
time flies at eto na.. living alone with my younger sister.
masarap yung independence, you decide on your own & the fun part is you decorate the house
all alone,be with my sister and alis ka nalang kahit anong oras etc..
weve been in an apartment for 3 months & now were living in our own house.
how cool is that? :thumbsupsmiley:
