NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Q: I'm a successful, single, city-dwelling woman in my thirties. My twenty-one year old niece just graduated college and has decided to move to my city. I'm not sure what my niece's thoughts are in terms of where to live, but I feel guilty that I haven't already offered her my extra bedroom. Truth is, I don't want to play guardian or compromise my social life. Am I being selfish?A: No, you're being reasonable. You know yourself, and if you feel you'd end up playing nervous aunt or angry babysitter, it isn't selfish to resist housing your niece. Do not feel guilty about valuing your privacy and honoring your independence.
