A room of one's own
I've been living back at my parent's house for the last few months. They're great but it's felt like being in limbo, although I totally needed it so I could figure out what I am doing with my life, and get my head together after a difficult relationship. But now I am finally in a position to move out into my own place. Yay!
Thing is, I can't decide whether to get a flat on my own, or to get a room in a shared house.
A room would be more affordable; but if I take my time and look carefully I think I would be able to find a flat that's within budget. So it's not a money issue at heart.
I think I'm torn between having enough private space in which to work (I work from home part of the time) and feeling like I'm a real independent grown-up with my own place; and on the other hand living somewhere that's full of life and other people, with stuff happening, and conversations to be had.
This turns into a conflict between what I intend for my life, which I think is the real crux of my indecision right now. I think that living with housemates would be perfectly fine for my present life situation. But in terms of the ideals towards which I'm working, a place of my own is more appropriate. Which is as much as to say, I think I could enjoy living with housemates right now, but I don't want to do it forever - and if I don't want to do it forever, why do it at all, when the other option is actually available to me?
Any thoughts on how I can go about choosing between these two equally appealing possibilities?!

Especially if the money is not a problem.
Of course that means you'll have to get out proactively to socialize, but isn't it better to choose who you want to spend time with than being forced by circumstances?
