I am in the unsavory position of needing a roommate. I split up with my partner of eight years -- I initiated the split -- so he's staying in our shared apartment. I'm moving out, I need a new place, and can't find anywhere affordable, especially given the fact that I'm buying new furniture, splitting up our savings/checking accounts, and so forth. My fear is that after living alone/with partner for so long (ex-partner traveled a ton for work so I was alone a lot), I really won't be able to adjust to sharing a living space with a stranger. Sharing a bathroom, a kitchen, a fridge...It creeps me out. Do you have to make small talk with them? Hang out with them? If you make a meal, should you leave them leftovers to be nice? I feel like a bad sitcom.
