It is socially unacceptable to live in an apartment with roommates

Can we please get rid of this stigma in US society? Not everyone makes 50k+ a year to live on their own.

I feel like I'd still live with roommates even if I could afford not to desu. It's nice to have people around and I don't need much space. Living in some giant mcmansion all alone is just something normie baby boomers aspire to.

honestly, i don't like living with room mates, but i think if you have some good ones it's ok. I rather see people around 20 years old living with room mates over seeing them live with mommy and daddy. There is a different vibe from people that live away from their parents... a good productive one usually.

It's the fucking opposite OP
People are all too ready to live with roommates
It's fucking retarded, you shouldn't have to share living space like that with anyone other than family.

I lived on my own making 15k a year.

That said I loved living with roommates.... so long as we all had jobs, all had cars, all had our own rooms. Lacking any one of those it sucked.

lol, I live in a 1 bedroom apt alone in Washington, work a part-time IT job and only make minimum wage. Rent is $475, around $550 with utilities, and I make roughly $800 a month. Not everyone lives in a stupidly expensive area, ya pleb.

Eastern Washington, I'm a few miles from the university I attend and moved here from Los Angeles where a similar setup would cost me around 3x as much. There really isn't any crime around here. Move out of a major metropolitan area and I guarantee you that the rents are going to be cheap.

btw my apartment is falling apart (I can literally pull the bricks out of the exterior of my unit) and the water turns colors randomly (landlord has told me it's rust... lol), but if I was a bit more wealthy, a nice 1 bedroom apartment would be around $600-$700.

@Sharpcharm
depends on your age... I lived in a flat share in London in my 20s - rent was cheap, I was the main point of contact with the landlord and sorted out the rent, bills etc... we sublet the box room to aussie backpackers etc.. to subsidise everyone else's rent too - worked out I was probably paying about half the market rate for a massive double room then I turned 30 and bought my own flat, I wouldn't want to flatshare these days - fine in your 20s when you still go out drinking mid week whith the rest of your grad scheme buddies etc.. though after over 10 years of flatsharing at uni then in London + with more responsibility in your job/career it isn't so good.

I'm about ready to just live in a van, I have lived with roommates for 4 years now all friends or friends of friends and have had to deal with thieves, heroin addicts, shitty loud music, people late on bills, etc. Moved back in with parents recently and they don't want me here long, it's a small house. No one will rent me an apartment because I'm self employed and don't have wage slave pay stubs and I don't want to waste most of my money paying the jewlord his overpriced rent anyway

It not socially unacceptable. For young people it's the standard.

Its not socially unacceptable unless you are in your mid 30s. By then you should be co-habitating with a partner, or successful enough to afford your own place

Ideally, perhaps. In reality: after my parents got divorced, my mid-40s mom had to live with a roommate until she could save up enough to get her own place.
