27 Reasons Why Everyone Should Live With Their Friends In Their Twenties

It's literally a sleepover everyday.

Posted on

1. Because suddenly staying in and doing nothing will become your favourite thing to do.

You don't have to make plans to hang out with your friends. And everyone knows that plans suck.

2. Because simple things like going to the shops suddenly become hilarious.

3. Because cooking with friends is twice as fun as cooking alone.

And if it ends up being gross then you both share the responsibility.

4. Because everyday disasters end in fits of giggles.

And it will be easier to entertain yourselves when you don't have internet for three weeks.

5. Because you'll have to face those disasters together.

Which is infinitely better than facing them alone.

6. And even if you live in a shithole you'll see the funny side.

7. Because you'll develop in-jokes that you can't remember the origin of.

They probably take on a semi-mythical status, that no one outside your house will ever understand.

8. Because you will have the best house parties of your life.

You'll know nearly everyone, and those you don't will be pre-approved by your friends. And if randoms turn up you can deal with it together.

9. And the cleaning up won't be quite so bad together.

It will still be terrible though.

10. Because it's nice to live with people who share some of your interests.

11. Because you always have someone to get ready with.

And share wardrobes with!

12. And someone to come home with.

Plus you'll have someone else that will think getting fried chicken at 4am is the best idea.

13. But most importantly someone to share hangovers with.

If you're really nice to your housemates they might even bring you food to cure your hangover.

14. Because you can be very open about toilet habits.

True friends bring toilet paper to friends in need.

15. And clothes will be mainly optional.

16. Because you can be your true self.

Sometimes you need to tell the world how you feel about cock.

17. And you'll find out things about your friends you never knew before.

Whether it's that they're a nightmare after tequila, or they make the best pancakes you've ever tasted.

18. Because you can huddle together for warmth.

And arguing over the heating with friends is better than with strangers.

19. Because you can share food with friends.

Or steal food and they might not kill you for it.

20. Because Friendmas is better than Christmas.

Like christmas but with more booze and less matching cutlery.

21. Because you'll have someone to debrief with whenever you need emergency advice.

There will always be someone around who can read that important text before you send it.

22. And someone to cheer you up when it all goes wrong.

Because sometimes even the best text editing doesn't help.

23. Because most of the drama will be fun drama.

Sure you might have the odd argument, but you'll get over it. And most of the drama will be exciting gossip rather than bickering.

24. Because your friends will be cool about who you bring home at night.

Until they leave the house and then you'll have to tell them everything.

25. Because there will always be someone around when you need a favour.

Including borrowing pants because you have no clean ones left and helping you apply fake tan/moisturiser to difficult to reach areas.

26. Because they'll be more love notes than passive-aggressive post-its.

27. Because your friends are right there whenever you need them.

And you might want to live with them forever.
