Hey all, 

 

Im currently in a living situation that has me living with 3 other individuals in a larger house. My girflriend and I are talking about possibly moving out of state in a few years, so I want to hold off on buying a house like I had originally planned. I also would like to live on my own for a while because roommates can be so frustrating. My question is how much is too much (% of total income) to spend on rent for a single bedroom apartment. Obviously I should expect to pay a little more in order to not have roommates. But where is the line between comfort and reality.
