Haha, the poor OP, he probably only wanted a bit of friendly advice. He got advice though, some of it is just missing the 'friendly' bit.
Saying that, my advice does mimic a lot of the above. Depending on where you are in the country (I cant be bothered to look), a houseshare wont cost you more than £300-£400 max, bills included, and you'll probably have an absolute blast, and can continue to decide on buying a place at the same time. Plus a lot of the time, there is no real commitment, so if you don't like it, you can try another place.
Go for it, YOLO, Carpe Diem, and all that jazz. Good luck with whatever you do
