As a fellow introvert who is going to be moving...somewhere...about 2 months from now, I have been definitely thinking about this. I somewhat wanted to live alone until I got the flu and bronchitis within 2 months of each other (and basically thought I was going to die both times) and I realized...I do not ever want to live alone. Haha Thanks for listing the pros and cons.
I love living alone...but enjoy having people over on a regular basis. Especially with a busy travel, work and school schedule, I enjoy the down-time to relax at home by myself. The trick to living alone is to have a close friends/family network. Mickey
