Personalized Living Communities Are an Unexplored Way of Life
In his newsletter, David Perell proposed the idea of personalized living communities—groups of friends who rent or buy houses close together and then communally cook, host activities, and raise their kids as a group.
This would perhaps emulate the college lifestyle that people so often miss when they leave school. It must be hard to make and maintain friendships as an adult, and so this way of living might provide a greater sense of community for those who participate.
Long-term, I’ve been thinking about what it’d look like to live with a group of 10-30 friends and raise our kids together. We’d get a group of houses on the same street in an affordable area, eat meals together, and co-hire tutors to homeschool our kids.
