It's good to have someone who will talk to you... I lived alone for years and just this past weekend I moved it with a friend of mine and her 2 kids. (Her 17 year old son looks at me like his dad since I practically raised him with his mother since he was 3) and he's at that age of wanting to drive me everywhere or take my car to work. He enjoys talking to me about sports, girls, work, etc... but I can also see it's GREAT to have someone who will LISTEN to you:) and not just hear what I have to say. He's a very smart kid and listens to what I have to tell him and/or actually listen to the answer I give him to any question he asks. Having someone that you can talk to and who will listen are something I'm not used to having around my house but it is an asset I love and will always enjoy.
