I voted B. Let me tell you why. I moved out of my parents' house when I was 17. I'm 21 now. I've been living with my older brother ever since. He's antisocial and doesn't want anyone coming over. That includes my ex, whom I dated for almost 2 years. He was living with his family. You know, the whole deal, parents and 3 sibblings in a suburban house. That SUCKED. If I was over at his house, I'd rarely spend the night. If I did, it was a big deal, I was a guest so his mom had to be ''in the mood'' to have me there. My ex had a single bed too. THAT sucked even worse. That means I'd sleep alone in his bed while he'd sleep downstairs on the couch. Intimacy much, yeah. Do you really think we'd have sex in his room when his parents and sibblings are sleeping next door? No, of course, so there was the basement. Comfort level over 9000... not. All of this setting wasn't ideal. Most couples I know have the opportunity to have sex AND sleep together every night if they want to. When a guy lives with his parents, it seldoms happens that the girlfriend can be over whenever, without caring whether or not the guy's folks will be there.
On the other hand, I have an apartment, so I'd get the burden most times to provide the intimate setting for you know... It'd have been easier if we could have been over every night we wanted without caring about bothering someone else. Being intimate in the middle of the day purposedly because the roommate isn't over at that moment isn't the most spontaneous or thrilling experience. So that's what I'm concerned about, mostly.
I'd hate to do that whole cycle again, being the guest every now and then and having to figure out the right time to have the guy over at my place, so not to bother my roommate. I want to be spontaneous and I want the place to be available at all times, that'd be the best, and I haven't had those benefits yet.0
