Anyone here over 25 still livin with their parent/parents?

Its just that.....I do!

But Im not ashamed to say that outta many reasons why I still do, one big one is that I dont have the finance for rent (so much!) as I dont have the courage either...........Im not very streetwise and I know most rented accomodation are in areas you needn't leave a new car in! Plus home is a comfort for me.......and while Im almost hitting 27years old and still there, mum and I can keep each other company, even though sometimes it can get a bit much and theres no room to breathe for either of us, thru gettin on each others nerves.........most of the time it isnt like that.......

and its great that her partner doesnt come every night, so mum and I get at least 3 nights to ourselves to watch films or programmes............I like that, I enjoy that, that sharin thang......

anyway, I have no idea what future holds, though it can feel wrong or like theres something wrong with me if I say to other pple, but then I just tell them the truth with a shrug of the shoulders to shut them up!

I only know its seems fine a girl still livin with her mum, but a boy my age or older? Why the HECK do pple question that more? AND keep their distance? I mean, come on Im sure some girls out there met guys 24/25 or maybe older, still livin with their mum/dad and you've pulled back a bit! Or maybe is that for guys over 30?

Still, the guy who wanted me, well, kinda stalked me, still lives with his mum and he musta been like 35!!!!! The worst thing was passin his car one day and seeing a doll in the back!

I freaked out................but even more so that the sayin for lads like that is 'Mummys Boy!' Right, and though Pub Crawlers mum looks great for her age....and all.......and uhm............anyway...





well I dont care if any of u laff at me still living with my mum! I aint ever gonna be dating, engaged, married, social and blah really..........so its ok!

:

anyone else here like ickle me?

I'm 25 and I live with my mum, although I'm not sure I'd describe it as STILL living with my mum.......

I lived away from home at university in Lincoln for 3 years, and as soon as I graduated, I moved in with friends in Nottingham. That lasted 2 years, and then I decided I wanted to go travelling round the world. so I sold my car and moved out of my rented house and back with my mum about 6 weeks before I left. I got back from my trip in August, and still haven't found a job, so am having to live at home until I have a bit more financial security.

My mum is great, and I get on really well with her, and its great having the home comforts but I have to say, I do miss the freedom of living elsewhere, and the location (my mum lives in Mansfield, about 15 miles from Nottingham and most of my friends. Having no money means I very rarely see my friends any more)

but I'm not ashamed of living at home. Like I say, my mum's pretty cool so it's almost like sharing with friends (but not quite.....)

Why, yes..... I'm over 30 and I still live with me mum. It's quite nice, actually..............she takes me to big Rita's house every Sunday night for a snappy game of bingo. Then, we go home and watch "Night at the Opera" on the Public Broadcasting Station. She retires at 10:00, and I always feed the cat before I go to bed. I hope I never get married.......... women are impossible!!!!!

























Wait, do I live at home?

Weeell, thanks to my thoughtful exhusband who kicked me out of his family owned house so he could divorce me...myself and my daughter are now living at my mom's house, and I am 31 years old. My mom's a pain in the a** to live with too most of the time. I sometimes feel like shit because I feel like I should be able to support myself and my daughter in my own home. That time will come though. I WILL find a job, and I WILL find my own place to live, and my daughter WILL have her own room.

I think it's cool if you still live with your parents! Hey if your parents don't mind and don't kick you out then why not!

Sometimes I wish I lived at "home" but then again.... I am home. I live with my bro... but basically I feel like I live alone sometimes.. He's always gone! LOL Which half of the time is ok! But the other half I feel so lonely !

icelle.

I don't think there's anything wrong with living with your parents past 25. My dad lived with his parents until he got married at age 30, and he's not a freak or anything!

I moved out when I was 26. I think if my dad didn't insist on it I wouldn't have.

She can't help it--she's Italian! (I'm assuming...)

I have an Italian friend (as in Italy, not Italian-American) who moved out of his mother's house when he was 30 which created such a scandal in his town, bringing such shame on his mother, that 10 years later she STILL has not made the 3 minute trip across town to visit him in the apartment he bought. To add insult to injury, he won't let her do his laundry. Essentially, in that culture, he is denying her her rights as a mother. As a result, he's the town freak.

p.s. she did not like me when he took me to meet her because (1) I'm foreign (2) I didn't speak enough Italian at the time and (3) probably the worst offense: I'm a vegetarian. That was one chilly willy lunch with Mama Italiana.

You know, this is an interesting topic. I'm a different *cougholdercough* generation than most of you and for my generation, it was really almost unheard of to live with your parents past the age of 18 (in the U.S., that is). You left home at 18 to go to college and if you went back home after college you would definitely have been labeled something ... well, unkind. If you didn't go to college, you moved out anyway--often even before the age of 18--and got a job. I only know of one person from my high school class that continued living with his parents after high school. But it's a whole different thing today. I don't judge it, because it is totally the way it is today, but it's still hard for me to get used to sometimes.

Thats a funny story.

Yes my mom was born and raised in Rome. She did not want me to move out.

I really hate when people do that my generation your generation crap. I am 24 and my brother is 23 and we both left like a month after we turned 18. Sicy and fish are older than I and they stayed home longer.
