Yes, I would, if it were just me and my (2 teenage) boys. We lived in an apartment smaller than that, but they were smaller then as well. I don't have a lot of 'stuff' but I do like privacy and space to myself. With adding my man to the mix (a 50 man who has never lived with anyone and doesn't have kids), I think the transition will be much easier if we all have some space
My parents lived in a small cabin (600 sq ft) for years after my brother and I left home. I had a small house (900 sq ft) for about 10 years.
