‘We just clicked’: How my flatmate became my uni family
Over the Christmas holidays, I was catching up with an old high school friend. We found ourselves reflecting on how close we’d gotten to some of the people we’d been living with. She said something about how she ‘clicked’ with one of her flatmates and I couldn’t relate more.
It is a weird bond to click with a stranger you have to live with and have been randomly paired with. Even though you’ve only known them for a few months, conversation bounces back and forth between you as if you grew up together. It almost feels like fate that you had to end up together.
