Not unless you both know how to forgive many, many times per day. If you have a problem forgiving others or your best friend has that problem, DO NOT DO IT. Life will be miserable if you do. Or, if you get your feelings hurt/take offense easily, don't do it.
When you live with someone, you find out what they are truly like beyond just "having fun" together and most of the time it is not a pretty site and you will get hurt multiple times, and if you're a person who doesn't do well at forgiving others and loving them despite what they do to you, especially when they are very close to you, this would be a terrible idea for you.
Believe me, I know because I've done it! I have a hard time forgiving those close to me and so did my best friend. We lived together, and it was NOT good.
The problem money issues can quickly arise, so watch what you sign! The apartment owner, the gas company, phone company, etc. will come after you if your signature is on the paperwork Friendship can quickly evaporate, and you are left holding the "bag"
I think you should go for it, there's absolutely nothing wrong with a person who'd rather be at home as apposed to somewhere else, if he has a job and can pitch in rent I don't see a problem, of course his gaming/gym habits might be annoying it "IS' something you can get used to.
- I am a home person, I play oodles of video games, and I pay ALL of the rent electric - phone - internet- cable-the actual rent, I find my contribution fair honestly peeps .like me though have to be pressured into cleaning/cooking/*going outside somewhere* however we do themon our own accord when things seem neccisary....
"Absolutely Not"!!! It may work for a while (IF one of you is very forgiving and generous). But, after time, your friendship will definitely be tested. Bills are a big factor, but also cleanliness, habits, ability to discuss feelings, other relationships (boyfriends, girlfriends, family members)... Of course, it is true that you never truly know someone until you've lived with them. If you truly value your friendship, find another roommate (ESPECIALLY if you're females)

If you're going to make the decision to go ahead with your friend, then sit down and write what your schedule will be like and have her do the same. Don't forget to write your likes and dislikes that they may be unaware of. This can really help open your eyes to the truth of what it will really be like. You think you know each other till you live together. It's fine as long as you both are open and honest before you sign the dotted line.
Only if you want to have the best time of your lives..... If you're truly best friends, then you should know eachothers corky narcissistic behaviors and all those "problems" that may arise will come last
i dont think so. I let a friend live with me and parents for almost 2 years. He was like my brother. then me and him got an apartment and about 6 months in we found out that the cops were watching our apartment for drug trafficking (at the time we were in fact using and selling) cause we had so many friends come over. Then when i decided to move out so i didnt ruin my future he went off on me and accused me of ratting him and everyone else. So we ended up getting into a fight and bones were broken and blood was spilled. and i havnt heard from him since. My advice is not to do that
Hell no. Something will arise that will destroy the friendship. It always happens. Whether it happens sooner or later. It's usually a woman that gets between the two guys. That is assuming we are talking about two guys. Whichever the combo, it's usually sex that breaks the deal.
It depends on if you can depend your friend to do what he/she is supposed to do. It also depends on habits. You guys should both either be messy or tidy because if one is messy and one is tidy...there will be problems. Also talk to your friend about boundaries such as having company over or eating your food or invading your space. Make each other's rules crystal clear beforehand, it will save you a lot of trouble.
