Thanks to all for your comments, even to MutantSupermodel and Rafiki for their thoughts that such a living arrangement would inevitably produce blog fodder for their amusement, and HappyHomeowners cryptic responses about sterophonic humping noises and chocolate.
Now, from all the opinions that you’ve given me I’ve come up with two facts, that are undeniable and agreed to by all (including myself).
It will be difficult.
I’m willing to risk it.
Now for those face-palming me right now, hear me out. I have NOT decided to do it. The above conclusions are by no means a statement of my moving in with 3 girls. Only that I would be willing to consider it, IF upon meeting (rather than just a phone conversation) all three occupants, my scary-o-meter doesn’t go off the scale AND the house is not a pig-sty AND the room is an adequate size AND they have well-established rules that mitigates having four adults living in one house AND I get along with (judged to the best of my ability considering that I will have a limited time frame to make this conclusion) ALL three people and ALL three people seem to get along with each other.
THEN and only THEN, will I move in.
As you can see there are a few caveats and addendum before I would move in to the place with three girls. But to be fair, all those conditions HAVE to be met before I would move in with anyone I wasn’t too familiar with. So it would be remiss of me to completely disregard the three girls when they could be the most well-adjusted and liveable option out of all the others.
Many of you have the opinion that this won’t be the case of course. And I am inclined to agree, but I think I should give them the chance to prove me wrong.
And yes, I have considered that during the initial meeting I could be told a bunch of half-truths, hell, maybe even outright lies about their living situation. They could behave in a manner (either singly or as a group) that is totally opposite their normal group dynamic. But again, those dangers will be present if I pick any group of strangers to live with, whether it be 3 girls, 3 guys, a guy and girl or any combination.
So once again, thanks to all for their input. And I will keep you posted.
The next entries about this topic will be regarding meeting the actual people and the first impressions I formulate.
And as always, feel free to say I told you so, when I report that the interview with the 3 girls devolved into a bitching match about who didn’t take the garbage out 3 weeks ago, who used up the last milk and put the carton back in the fridge, and who slept with whose boyfriend.
So, stay tune, same sweaty time! Same sweaty channel!
