Make separate spaces in the fridge and cupboards for groceries.This just leads to fights or makeup sex, neither of which is a good idea. Make sure you give each other space by spending more time in your room or a spare room. If they are mutual friends and it may cause tension, perhaps it would be best to meet up outside the house or at a time when your ex is not going to be home. This can be devastating to the person that is having more difficulty moving on, not to mention awkward for your date.No-one says anything to discourage you from chatting up someone you fancy at a bar, even though that attraction has nothing to go on bar looks and the snippets of conversation that you manage to hear above the music. I got together with my boyfriend after living with him for four years as housemates, and it’s worked out for us so far.If you know a person socially or through work and you develop a crush on them, then it’s probably down to more than just their looks. I am the smug embodiment of the best case scenario.And yet, when we have a crush on a housemate or a colleague we immediately panic and focus only on the worst case scenario.No-one wants to eat breakfast next to someone who has rejected them. But from the way we cling to ‘the housemate/colleague rule’ you’d think it was enforced by a crack squad of detectives. (Unless you’re the manager of the person you fancy…) We put those rules there so that we can hide behind them when we’re faced with the fear of telling someone we really care about how we feel. If you’re just physically attracted to the other person, then it’s probably not worth stirring up potential trouble.
