Things are moving really well with my common living investigation. I carried out five interviews in a local coffee shop over the past couple of days and now it down to 2 people.
Simon came round last night and it was Trevor who came round tonight. It is Simon who is the clear winner for me. We got on really well, we had a takeaway, we had a few beers and he loved the apartment and he has said he got really good vibe about me. He’s got a girlfriend but he says that he does not want to move in with her and so having an arrangement with someone else gets him off the hook for a little while. I found that really funny but I could see where he was coming from.
I suppose is it a similar ages perhaps been in a position like me, where he’s been in really serious and committed relationship and doesn’t want to jump into it, and perhaps he really does like someone but she is putting pressure on him then just maybe that’s a great idea for him.
He has agreed to pay me $300 a month which is significant because I don’t have a mortgage which means I’m getting $300 in my hand which covers a third of my bills. Which gives me $300 extra each month. I was only surviving on $200 after all my bills are paid which was virtually impossible and I was dipping into savings, this means that I now have $500 a month after all my bills which means that I will at least break even. I could probably have got more, but he seems really cool so in the short term I more concerned about compatibility and a smooth home life than the money in some ways, that’s partly because sales are picking up at work.
So I can’t complain, things are going well. I’m sure something will happen soon, but as long as the sales keep picking up at work and I keep building a client base and Simon moves in the next week and everything is good, then things are looking positive. All I need now is a casual girlfriend and I will really be happy where I am.
