I'm 24, I lived in England for 3 months but unfortunately I found no job so I had to move back home with parents.. Well, actually it's quite usual in Italy..It's difficult to move out before you're 25-30, expecially if you decide to go to university (or you move to study in another city but usually you still live with your parents..)

other! i'm a uni student and i'm going to be living away from my parents for most of the next four years, but coming back for the holidays.

what happens after i finish my degree depends on the choices i make regarding further education and whether or not i want to find a place with friends/boyfriend

I officially moved out at 25, I went to a college very close to my parent's house so it seemed silly to move out and pay rent, plus I honestly wasn't home most of the time and I never slacked off so my parent's didn't mind. Now that I have been moved out for a cou

Okay, my situation is complicated.
·I'm a grad student living in Ohio.
·Because my parents live in North Carolina and because all of my paperwork lists me as being resident in NC, I choose to maintain my residence in NC with my address as being my parents' current address.
·However, my parents' state of residence is NOT North Carolina, but Texas. (And my twin brother's is legally Wisconsin, I think. Go figure.)
So, officially, I still "live" at home for ease of paperwork. However, I'm practically on my own and have been largely self-sufficient since about 2009.

Since I know it would be a bad idea to try and move out while I'm still in university, my current plan is to move out in early 2015 (I'll be 21 by then). In the meantime, I want to save my money up so I can afford the place that I want.

The culture in the U.S. is shifting towards people living with their parents for longer. Why? College expenses have sky-rocketed in the last 10 years, but job prospects have dwindled. So you get these early 20-somethings that are trying to get themselves out of these massive student loan debts who can't afford to move out as early as previous generations may have been able to.

In conjunction, the flailing economy has also led to "grandparent" generations to start moving back in with their children as they find the cost of living to be too high, and the cost of care being too high. This is why we're seeing multi-generational homes, more common in Europe, becoming more and more common in the U.S.

Man I don't even know if it's realistic to expect to move out in your early twenties anymore. And even if we do, we'll be broke. As much as I want to move out right now I simply can't yet. :/

No money to do so yet. Also considering that it would make no sense later on, when I want to study. I will need all the money I can get or have saved up.

But I wish I could. My aunt lives with us - and she's a witch.

I'm 25 and still haven't moved out, because when I studied, I couldn't combine studies with work, and now that I work, the salary for a job that requires the education I have is so low that paying for even a room could cost as much as 70% of my salary, which would leave little for food, not even speaking of other expenses.

How does "since 22 living in the parents house while they're away for 99% of the year" count? ;p we haven't moved with my husband to our own home yet, we're still saving, but since my parents come home only for Christmas, we're staying in their house. No additional money spent! :dummy:

I went away to college at 18 but went home to my parents' place for holidays and such. My first job out of college was overseas, which was when I was 22 and what I'm counting as "moved out" but I spent time at home various times since then, and it was a long time before I wasn't storing a bunch of stuff at my parents' house.

Where i live one doesn't simply move out, except perhaps to be crammed together with a few other roommats in tiny apartments.
Given that the average salary is about 450 euro and the rent for one room 150-200 euro (without expenses), moving out and living the dream remains the stuff of romantic comedies for most people.

I was 18 when I moved into university residence and now I live in an apartment while I attend university. At the same time, I still haven't totally moved out of home. I still have plenty of stuff there and it is still what I consider "home".

I moved into dorm when I was 17, back home for the summer, then on my own after that. I worked all through college, at several part time jobs and rented a room in a house. I had saved money for tuition by working during high school, so I just had to cover living expenses and books...this was just what was expected. To stay with my parents I didn't consider an option.

I'm still in college, so I still live at home while not at school. Unless I get a job in another city or something, I'm assuming I'll move back in with my parents after graduation even if I have a job, just for money-saving purposes for a bit.

I'm 30, I did not move out yet. The main reason is because I wanted a career change so instead of working I am back to study another career, so far I am happy because I know I am making the best I could possibly do for a better future for me. This year I finish my studies and I'll start working again in an entirely different field.

I am 28 and I moved out about 7 months ago. I'm barely hanging by a thread, but I can say it's worth not tolerating parents anymore. Unfortunately I have to room up with some peeps, but hopefully I'll get my own place soon.

I didn't want to move out, but taking the bus for over 2 hours to uni and another 2 back was getting pretty tiring by the end of the first semester... luckily some friends closer to the city gave me an opportunity at their flat, which was only a 5 minute bus ride from the city!
I never want to go back home ahaha, it so much more fun living closer to town.

I'm not planning to move out any time soon. I really can't see this idea that you MUST live on your own for the sake of living on your own. I'd be lonely as heck on my own and would probably have to live with strangers, which would make me uncomfortable, just to have the company that I already have. Seems silly to me.
