Okay first of all, if this thread is inapropriate for SE++ please excuse me and feel free to close or move it. I just thought people here are actually a bit more down to earth than the people in H/A. At any rate, that place is somewhat scary.

I broke up with my girlfriend of two and half years the day before yesterday, or rather she broke up with me. All the emotional trouble this brings aside, there are other, more immediate problems I now have to deal with. Mainly this involves getting a new apartment, either for me alone or in a sharing-community.

After thinking this through, my options are as follows:
a) Have my parents pay half of the rent for [strike]our[/strike] my current apartment
b) Find a single-room one closer to the city
c) Find a room in an apartment-sharing-community (I hope this is the right word)

Old apartment
Pros:
- Awesome kitchen
- Awesome broadband
- Lots of room for a single person
- Nice landlady
- Privacy

Cons:
- Somewhat expensive
- In the middle of fucking nowhere, so about an hour every day just to get to Uni and very little in the way of supermarkets and such
- Due to this I have very little contact with other people and just going to a bar or something is very problematic due to the long-ass way home
- Next to no furniture once my ex is gone. All in all I currently own a table and a couple of shelves
- Maybe TOO MUCH room for a single person (2 1/2 rooms)

New apartment for me alone
Pros:
- Hopefully IN the goddamn city
- Would be awesome for me as a bachelor
- Better possibilities of going out or having people visit me ( :winky: )
- Less furniture needed

Cons:
- Hard to find
- Expensive
- Questionable internet access (Depends on which part of the city, either it's shit or it's fine, no in between)
- Probably no great kitchen, but at least it'd be my own

Flat share apartment
Pros:
- New people, whoo!
- Relatively easy to find
- IN the city
- Single room of decent size might be perfect for me
- A bit cheaper than the old apartment
- Less furniture needed for a single room

Cons:
- New people, boo! (You know how it is...)
- Terrible, shitty kitchens
- Internet probably sucks because there is always one douche who leeches porn all day
- Little privacy, especially for... intimate stuff

So yea, tell me what you think SE++.

Maybe some of you were in a similar situation, how did you deal with it?

    Sorry to hear about your lady troubles, but that aside I say go for the single-room in the city

    convenience and proximity to lots of shit to do, better transit, and stuff like that will always win out for me

    you should buy the one with the awesome kitchen, invite a hot chick over, and have sex with her on top of the kitchen with a camera videotaping it

    then mail the tape to your ex with a smileyface on the envelope

    how rushed are you? maybe its a good idea to go on craigslist, check out a couple shared apartments, meet and see if you get along with the potential new roomies? all while looking for a new single place. take your time, don't make any rash decisions, and find a new, cheaper place? good luck though! in love and place-hunting

    I would not get your parents to pay out your rent.

    Bascially you are mooching off them for no real gain.

    If you can afford it off your own dime stay in the apartment.

    If you can't go room with some people. Despite you being bummed forcing yourself to socialise will be a good thing.

    Stuff like Craiglist doesn't apply, I'm in Germany.

    Rushed... Well since my parents are willing to help me out with the rent (~450€/Month, they pay half of it) I'm probably not that rushed. However, finding a place to stay is pretty goddamn hard around here. 98% of all apartments in use, all the time and it'll only get worse once the new semester starts. So IF I decide to move out I should do it until about the middle of august.

    Also in regards to your kitchen fear.

    At the end of the day. You can still cook food in a small kitchen. It's just a bit more cramped. My first kitchen was the size of my mattress and I still was ok in there.

    It's not as serious as it seems. At least I think it is. So I thought SE++ might be a better place. One half of H/A would probably tell me to murder my GF or something.

    Yea, I feel bad for mooching off but then again that's what parents are for, right?

    I drove 300km today so I could talk this over with them. My mother bought me a bottle of fine single malt whisky to cheer me up, heh. :P

    He'll need two buddies to help him out. One dumbass slacker who means well but fucks up until the very end where he saves the day in some random way and the bad ass cool guy who has no business being friends with them but has a heart of gold so he's solid.

    This might actually work. I know exactly the people for this.

    However, none of them would drive across half of Germany (Which is not a long drive from west to east, actually) because, well, the Slacker has no money and The Cool Guy is afraid of the autobahn or something.

    Parents are for mooching when you absolutely need it.

    Not when you can just move some place you can actually afford.

    Did I mention my GF told me she wants to break up AFTER she got herself a place to stay? :?

    Anyway, the problem is for single-rooms you pretty much have to pay an agent to find you shit and honestly I don't want to pay some douche just to open the fucking door for me. I could, of course, but it feels like a ripoff.

    Tell her too bad, you are broken up now.

    Think of it this way.

    You are willing to let your parents pay several thousand eruos to let you live in a place that is too big for you, too far away and will end up with you being overly lonely.

    Wasting money is all relative here.

    By flat share you mean with roommates and such? I'd go with that. Some people like living absolutely by themselves, it'd drive me crazy.

    As long as they're people you know and/or trust of course.
