Welcome to this Tuesday’s Question of the Week! Please chip in and get some discussion happening.
I’ve just finished semester, which means study week, exams, and long study sessions. This semester I did a lot of that study at home, because it has been freezing (by Australian standards) and no-one thinks to insulate or heat houses in the majority of cities. My housemate was away for a week, and I really started to feel quite lonely after a while, being home alone so often. It brought up some thoughts I regularly have about how I envision my living situation in the future, because as an aromantic ace, the standard monogamous-couple framework doesn’t really apply.
What do you see your living situation like in five or ten years? A monogamous partner, living alone, sharing with other people? Something completely different?
I don’t know if I want to live completely on my own, because I do like companionship. A shared flat or house with a very good friend sound pretty much ideal for me, but I don’t know if anyone else will want the same arrangement. I wrote a little bit more about this here, if anyone interested.
