In my first year of university, I lived with four other people, two girls and two boys. I got on with them all very well. I clicked with one of my male flatmates almost instantly, and a couple of months into my first year, our friendship blossomed into a relationship. Granted, we had a rocky start due to other reasons, but we stayed together for 10 months and at the time, everything seemed okay but ultimately, it wasn’t.
We had an extremely difficult break-up at the beginning of my second year and then had to live in a house together for a year. Luckily, we both got into new relationships during that year and I’m actually very happy for him now…
