Tips to Keep Everyone Happy
There is no doubt that moving to a new apartment is exciting. But you might not be so excited when it’s time to live with your friends in the same space for months on end. It can be hard enough living with one person, but imagine now having to share an entire home or apartment with them! Luckily, there are ways of making this work without being miserable all the time. Here are some tips from local Vegas movers on how to coexist peacefully and happily in a new apartment with friends!
The first thing you should do is sit down and talk with your friends about what you expect out of the living situation. Make sure everyone has realistic expectations, rather than expecting things to work like they did back home (if that’s not possible).
Once this conversation happens, it’s time for compromises! If someone wants to watch TV all day while another person wants quiet at night but can’t stand early mornings when there are people watching TV, then the solution might be one person watches in the morning before others wake up or two hours after midnight so as not to bother anyone else. You need a middle ground where both parties’ needs are met so nobody feels left out or shortchanged in any way. It will take some time for everybody involved to get used to the new schedule, but in time everyone will adjust and you should all be able to coexist peacefully.
Don’t let your friends take advantage of you or try to change how things work back home. For example, if one friend is always late with the rent while another person pays on time every month without fail, then someone may want that other person to start paying for them too even though they know it’s not fair! You don’t have to make up for somebody else either; remember: compromise! Make sure everybody gets something out of this living situation (whether it’s a place away from their parents where they can study more easily or having people around at night when there are no roommates).
