I was talking with my sister, and the idea of moving in with her came up. She currently lives at home, I live in an apartment on campus but I will be moving out of it in May. She was thinking of getting a place, but she would need a roommate. Do you think this would be a good idea or not? She is 2.5 years older than me. She has a well paying job. She is kinda messy tho. My worries are bringing over women would be awkward. Also many other things.
Please guys/girls tell me your feelings on this. What would be some +'s and -'s?

I wouldn't recommend it.
Personally I'm against share accommodation outright. I like my own space, I like my own kitchen, my own bathroom. I like that I don't have to ask what to watch on the TV and so on.
When I did live in share accommodation, I had to put up with their mess, their noise, their lifestyle. It sucked. And that was a couple of mates from university.
If you live with your sister you're going to end up getting to have to be pretty comfortable with things. For instance, her boyfriends, her moods, her habits, her choice in tv/music etc. Heck even her period (PMT).
This is why, generally, guys move in with guys and girls move in with girls, when share living in shared accommodation. It's not awkward with a bunch of guy mates (or even a brother) to say "Hey guys American Pie is on lets watch that movie with that russian babes t*ts in it", but with a sister it's a bit trickier.
If you get along with her really well, and are both very grown up/easy going it could work, but honestly I wouldn't recommend it.
