Prospective Rooms

So I need to find a place to live in sweden like last weekend. I talked to people Sat. and Mon. and two people seemed likely.

Person 1 is an old lady, she has internet and a bit apartment which is well kept. She has said that I could have the room and the living room if I wanted, and she wouldn't enter (I am freindly though, don't see the point of saying don't come in). She has a big kitchen/bathroom/and I think laundery facilities. She is about 37 minutes walk away from my work.

Person 2 is a guy, my age? He plays EVE, and rents out the other two rooms that he doesn't stay in (no living room) to people (mostly guys). It is utilitarian but works. Obviously he has internet too. He is about 50 minutes away from my work.

There are other possibilities, but I haven't talked to them. Person 1 I could move in with tomorrow? Person 2 might not tell me if he wants me as a roommate until Friday (although we talked about eve for several hours last night).

i voted eve guy, and one reason for that is that despite it not being a perfect setup it will mean there are a few other people around and this will probably be a good thing for you as a stranger in a new country.

the flipside is the older lady option sounds like a better living experience, is closer to work and maybe she could be a surrogate mum who takes care of you a bit and doesn't force you to play eve for hours and hours and hours

but i vote go with the eve guy and see how it works out

It's a toughie. On the one hand, living with the lady provides you with more space and better overall living conditions. Living with the EVE guy gives you more social contact, albeit very nerdy social contact, but at the price of space. Personally, I am not sure I'd want to live in a bedroom and have no loungeroom, so I'd lean towards the old lady. There's also the fact that it's a guarantee with her, whereas the EVE guy is only a maybe (going to wait for that to get misquoted). Albeit a maybe you'll find out about on Friday.

So I'll vote the old lady, but it's a close call. Who knows she may either a) be a lonely old lady who wants some company or b) have a hot daughter for you.

If you take these places do you have to stay there for a fixed period or would you be able to move out if something better came up?

I would be able to move out if something better came up.

These are all really informal.

For something formal, I would have to wait 3 months (at the minimum?).

But what would be something better? I guess a furnished place on my own? But than it would be for more than I would want to spend likely.

Somewhere sharing with youngish people, with shared living space and a bit nicer than "utalitarian" might be better.

He is in caldari provisions, so just a missioner. I think he was in a failing alliance for a bit.

If that was my thoughts, I would try to room with the girl who just contacted me who is a snowboarder.

Her place costs more and is not furnished though.

Man I'm glad I've never been in a failing alliance.

If you take Venom's advice (and I can't imagine why you wouldn't), just be sure you ask first.

Yeah, his stories sounded really funny, but not something I would want to live through.

Even good alliances (like mine) still have many painful type moments.

I can't believe you didn't give us this option. The extra rent is probably less than a nice hooker would cost. As for the furniture, you are in the land of IKEA.

I couldn't imagine any girl who snowboarded who was less hot than the old lady (she isn't actually a grandma).
