25 still at home learning to live without medicine(was put on medicine when i was age 4-6 and on it till 21 or so) and working part time.
Moved out 2 weeks after I turned 18, though the move was scheduled well in advance. I don't regret it, only because I would have gone nuts living with my parents any longer. But everyone is not the same. If you CAN stay with your parents and there are no problems, then by all means do it as long as you can. The money you save will be worth it, and you seem to have at least some sort of plan right now. There's no rush to get out, cause once you're gone, you can never come back (figuratively, of course you can literally come back).
The concept that it's lame to live with your parents is largely an American one, and largely one that's fading as people are having to move back in with their parents during these tough times.
Me and my stepfather got into it big in October, about a month after I turned 18. Went to a town about thirty minutes away, bounced around for a while between friends and my boyfriend at the time. Me and the boyfriend finally got a place together with one of his dormmates the next summer. That guy and I broke up in November, but since he was leaving the place for winter break to go back home, I stayed until January. A day before I was supposed to be out, I met a couple and we hit it off really, really well. >.> Moved in with them the next day and was there for about three months before they decided they didn't want a roommate anymore. Went back home until August, when I met the most wonderful man in existence. Moved from Virginia to Iowa with him the next month. Then my mom wanted us back in VA in December, so we went back and stayed with my family until he found a job (he does construction) a couple weeks ago and moved to Texas. And here we are, in the hotel we're staying in until we find an apartment.
I just moved out of my mother's house August 2011 =]
I will be 24 in two months, moved to miami for school. working a decent job now, late hours but i obviously have a lot of free time >.>
Have no idea how the hell people can afford moving out when they are around 16-20 years old.
Here in norway just renting a little bacement / Room cost min 1500euro..
Thats ALOT of cash for a 16-20year old kiddo...And that is without car-payments/food etc....
20 years and still live at home.
I can understand OP's curiosity but by no means you should use w/e age you find to be the average as a standard for your own pride or ideals.
The economy sucks. Period. Stay at your parents until you have a nice cushion from savings.
If it makes you feel better, I heard Italians don't leave their parents' home until age 30.

i was 17, wasnt a big deal. i dont see why anyone would stay past finishing university
If I'd move out, I'd probably have to pay twice that, lose access to the gym, pool, garden etc. I don't see how it would possible be a good idea to even consider that?
Remember remember the fifth of November
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason why gunpowder, treason
Should ever be forgot...
Probably in a bit more then a year aswell, I want to a secure job first so I don't get in debt or w/e. I already got a crapload of stuff so other then rent the cost to move out won't be too steep. Oh, I'd be 22 then btw. :d

I was 18. The difference being I moved to another country after I met a guy through WoW. Currently living with the inlaws, paying rent for the room and such, currently saving money to get a flat of our own.
If you get along with your family, the bonds are good and there's no pressure, why WOULD you want to move out?
17. I was planning to move out anyways, but because I'm a horrible person I was asked to leave by my father.
In Asia, Africa and some parts of Europe it's pretty standard to live with your family until later life or even longer, and I presume in places like America and the United Kingdom their is an expectation for a the person to leave home at a young age and I imagine for some this can put pressure on teenagers and young adults to leave home, in some cases I can even imagine this kind of thing to be looked down upon which is a shame.

When I finished high school and started studying in the university...19 years old.
I moved into my first apartment when I was 19. Been on my own since except for a couple months while I was apartment hunting (evil ex).
