    When I was 16 and I wouldn't recommend it

    My advice to any and all you young people is this: Milk your folks for all they're worth. Enjoy the free food and electricity, because it WONT last forever. Save every penny you can while you're there because as much fun as living on your own can be for a young person, its not cheap.

    I'm going to be 21 this month, and I don't plan to move out until I get my degree. I'll probably wait until I've worked one year so I can afford to pay my parents back for my education and still have enough to rent my own place somewhere.

    What's wrong with living with your parents when you're in your 20s? Unless there is some issue at home, it doesn't look very financially responsible to move out when you're not ready to.

    Yeah, my situation was the "issue at home" type, so gone at 15.

    19, shared flat with a good friend from the start.
    The nerve is called the "nerve of awareness". You cant dissect it. Its a current that runs up the center of your spine. I dont know if any of you have sat down, crossed your legs, smoked DMT, and watch what happens... but what happens to me is this big thing goes RRRRRRRRRAAAAAWWW! up my spine and flashes in my brain... well apparently thats whats going to happen if I do this stuff...

    19 though I live one block away, and with my godfather.

    I still help my family with whatever I can, and If I were to move back, I would not be leeching, it would be to save more money as a family.

    I would rather move in with friends than live by myself, two people can afford more than one.

    Lived at home until I went away for college and have been on my own ever since.

    I don't think there's anything wrong with living at home while going to college. It makes sense financially.

    So yeah... I was ''forced'' to move. I'm happy though, living with 2 friends atm and it has been a lot of fun... but sometimes it is hard ;/
    Yea, like I said, tough love: Pay the same as everyone else in rent, or get out. Like you said, it was so you'd get a better job/attend university, and getting you out on your own seemed the best way to make you realise you need these things. The fact your parents are wealthy and can afford the bills has nothing to do with it: make your own way in the world. Sounds like your parents want you to be the best you can, and not doing the minimum to get by.

    Moving out this summer to go to uni, will have turned 20 at that time.
    I've seen mates deal with some pretty messed up house owners (sudden evictions etc.), so I'm glad that I won't have to go out on the market to find a place to rent -- as my parents planned ahead and bought an apartment for this purpose some six-odd years ago.

    Sometimes I wish I was a girl so I could have an easier time obtaining employment in this little shithole town.
    I very much feel your pain I got a job in Oct 2009, the women in the office I was working in were backstabbing bitches. The guy who originally hired me got pushed out of his team leader position so he found another job and quit. The woman who replaced him had this huge chip on her shoulder and hated me so she did everything she could to get me fired. She succeeded....

    I've been unemployed since April 2010, applied for many many jobs but these days I don't even get the "no thank you" letter let alone an interview. I too am finding it really hard to get a job and I REALLY hope that being unemployed for coming up to 3 years now isn't being held against me! The problem also is that i'm turning 29 this year which dosn't help as they only seem to want people around the age of 22 or less. Also about your statement of being female would help you to find a job easier... not around where I live! I'm female and I'm struggling just like you to find work!

    I can agree with that, although it was a bit of a shock for me.

    Everything is going smooth now, though I'm still having some problems with money and taking care of the apartment etc.
