Dear Harlan: I am a 23-year-old female and I live in an apartment with two other roommates (both guys). We all have our own bedrooms, but we share a bathroom. I never expected to fall for one of the guys here, but we have become really close friends this year.
We still have six months on the lease and I don’t want to make things weird. I also think it could be kind of difficult sharing a place with someone who I’ve just started to date. Then there’s the possibility that we will get together and hate each other in a month or two. I don’t want to be stuck living with my ex. I also don’t want to miss out on being with someone so great.
