    I'm getting my own place February 1st. It's been the first time since 1998 to live alone again. I can't wait!!

    I can have things exactly as I want them and can move them around at will. If I think that vase looks nicer on the other table, then I move it. If I want to put a new picture up, I can.

    I can wander around in my undies

    I don't have to label the food in the fridge as mine

    ...if i don't want to do the dishes, i don't
    ...if i want quiet, it's quiet
    ...if I want music, I turn on whatever I am in the mood for
    ...if I want to come home late, I do
    ...if I want to sleep in, there's nobody to wake me up
    ...if I want to get up early, I don't have to creep about quietly
    ...I can use the bathroom with the door open
    ...I can walk around bollucky bare-assed
    ...I have the whole bed to myself
    ...No one eats my ice cream, or peanut butter, or vanilla Oreos
    ...No one leaves dirty clothes lying around (except me)

    I really enjoy it in many respects... I do as I please and since I own my own home, lots of gratification about what I've accomplished here.

    I do miss my bf at times... LOL

    I can walk around butt naked inside and out on my deck. I can fart and leave the bathroom door open when I take a dump icon_twisted.gif

    I love living alone...it's the best thing I've ever done.
    I get time to think, to reflect, to decompress, to create...and it's great when it comes to entertaining guests.

    I can eat what I want to eat. If I want my Cap'n Crunch Crunch Berry cereal, by god, I'm gonna have it!

    I can watch what I want to watch. No more NCIS, Desperate Housewives, or chick flicks for me.

    I can have a friggin glass of wine when I come home after a rough day at work and chill out on the deck or on the couch and not have to be "on" in my own house.

    I can put my stuff where I want it.

    I can live in my own filth if I so choose - for the record, I DON'T choose to do that, but I can if I want!

    Been back on my own living alone (at least when my kids aren't here) for the last 3 years, and don't think I could live with anyone again.

    I prefer living with roommates, BUT...

    It stays as clean as I want it
    I walk around in my boxer-briefs
    I can leave my stuff in the living area
    Nobody eats my food but me

    Favorite is probably the peace and quiet.

    Assuming that there are no noisy annoying neighbors to bother you, of course.


    Ugh, so annoying. Welcome to living in Manhattan.

    All of the above. Plus

    Tools stay where you put them.
    Sole possession of the remote control.

    I'm alone during the week, but it's an fairly new situation for me.

    I like that I exert more control over the house, though it means I have more responsibility.
