with a friend or your partners friends for along time? I do not think i could as i think that you have lost your privacy.

This is a very hard thing to do, we did have a friend move in for about three weeks and that is as long as anyone has stayed. I was working full time and so it was easier on me than Hubby who was at home. They did paint the house together and that was a big help.

No way. Maybe 1 night sleepover but anything longer than that would make me feel like part of some BB show.

Hello, I guess it would depend on the friend and how long I would have to have the person living at my home.Most of my friends I wouldn't have any problem with but only staying with my b/f where he lives right now is awful.He had to move in with some family because it is closer to his work than where I moved to. I stayed with him for 4 days and I felt like I was in prison. He had this small room withsome boxes his aunt had some of her things.It was awful, just terrible.Clothes all over the bathrooms and dirty.we even had to take our own TP and soap and hand towels.No basic necessities in the bathrooms.I left my towel set for my b/f to use.I can't live with people who live like &%^s. I felt like I was released from prison when he took me back home. He wanted me to see what his life was like before he met me. He know remembers why I don't like collecting junk.When he came home after the first week staying with his family he told me it was TOO messy and couldnt believe how people can live like that. I wanted to see what he had to go through and it was an awful experience. Thank goodness he will be moving home with me full time in 20 more days when his job transfer is completed. Oh yeah, the thing about privacy. He has none where he is staying right now.During his live music broadcast yesterday he went up stairs to get someing cold to drink.He was gone for 4 minutes and during that time he was gone I saw a little face come on screen during the broadcast. It was one of his nephews. The little boy climbed on to his bed and went after his laptop and pushed some buttons. He was listening for my b/f to come down the stairs then suddenly the broadcast stopped.I checked the archives to see what time the little boy was in my b/f room.I told him the time to see when his broadcast stopped.I said to my b/f there was this litle innocent face come on screen just before his broadcast was interupted.He knows now he needs to try to get what he needs before doing the broadcast. He keeps his laptop locked with a password when he is at work but when he leaves his room to get something who knows what can go on in there.No privacy !

I don't think I could do that. People nowadays have different standards of hygiene when it comes to their homes and their bodies and I think that I would get mad if they didn't meet up to my standards. If the person had nowhere to go, then yes-I'd open my home to them, but we'd have to establish some house rules.

Well in my opinion it would have to depend on the type of friend and how good of a friend they are. Because I wouldn't just let anyone in here with my husband and I. I would have to trust them really well and I have very few that are like that. If they needed a place to stay for awhile then I would let them stay and then vice versa with my husbands friends. Although my husband said he would never allow any of his friends to stay with us because he doesn't trust them at all. Now if it was a family member I would let any family stay with me because you should always help family when they are in a time of need. Yes you would probably lose your privacy but imagine if you were in a situation as they were, you would want someone to help you out as well.
