How much does it cost to live in the city?
There are three certainties when you move to a big city. You will have bad dates with very eligible men, it could be the way they hold their fork or initiate sex talk before you’ve even learned their last name and from that point it’s certain what their intentions are and despite their moderate good looks and investment portfolio you best be going home alone to fish the over priced thong from your bottom and slip into your Peter Alexander pyjamas. Secondly, you will have an argument with a housemate, whether it be over dishes, unexpected late night guests or that entire jar of Nutella you ate in the middle of the night and never replaced. And finally, when you move to the city you will earn more money than you ever have in your life and every month you’ll wonder what the hell happened to it.
