Default would i cope?

would eventually like a burmese python when i can afford and the time is right. only thing im concerned with is would i be able to cope with a snake of this size on my own? i wouldnt have no help because my missus and mates are scared. so can one person cope with a burm or is it definately a two man job?

I think its something like 1 person per 6ft of snake.
If you want a burm why not get a dwarf if you have to do it alone?

To be honest, i would have just one keeper in the house,
it's a little dodgey and these most of the time are 'tame', but some have
known to have turn so not worth the risk if you ask me!

I think you're sensible, but maybe you could consider Boa's?

Yep, they get ALOT smaller then Burm's,
you can also get alot of dwarf species, that just get to around 5ish ft. Male BCI
get around 6-8ft.
