In an unexpected twist, married guy has just emailed me to ask if – since I’m looking for a flat – I’d consider sharing a flat with him.
On the plus side:
It would be cheaper
He wouldn’t be there very often because clearly he’s going to be round at new girlfriend’s place
Its less complicated living with men because they don’t mind if you’re thinner than they are
On the minus side:
GOOD GOD, NO, NO, NO. WHY ON EARTH WOULD I WANT TO LIVE WITH YOU? ARE YOU THOROUGHLY MAD?
Quite apart from the fact that I want to live by myself – hence moving out of my current flat-share in the first place – I can think of nothing more likely to cause drama and upset than sharing a house with a bloke I rather fancied until I found out what he was actually like, who is ‘seeing’ one of my new friends, and who is, in fact, still married to a woman who doesn’t even know there’s someone else yet.
Is today an episode of Eastenders and its just that nobody has told me?
