My college roommate, who eventually became my best friend, has suggested moving in with me. We never had major problems living together in college, but now I'm concerned for a few reasons. I've grown accustomed to having my place to myself and, in fact, use my guest bedroom as an additional closet. Plus, I enjoy walking around in the buff (a small sacrifice, but a sacrifice nonetheless). Also, she has a baby, and I'm not sure how I would be able to deal with the whole situation of early bed times and fear of bringing a friend over because she's not comfortable having strangers around her child. And I'm not sure how her child and my puppy would interact. Finally, she is not as well-off as I am, and I'm not sure what she can and cannot afford. I think this may be one of the reasons she's suggested moving in with me, to alleviate some of the strain on her bank account. I love her and want to help, plus it would be great to have her and the baby so close. On the other hand, I love having so much space to myself and, although it would save me a few extra dollars each month, I don't need it. I would suggest she find a little place nearby for herself, but like I said, I'm not sure what she can afford. What should I do?
