I moved the fuck out with my fiance almost four years ago and never looked back, I love my parents and can take them in small doses, but we are so completely different that I have to be away from them. I'm getting ready to go back to my last year of college tomorrow and my fiance and I have been able to support each other financially the whole time...It sucks working a full time job while I'm in school, but if it means I don't have to deal with my family, it is 100% worth it.

Eh, I have an 18 year old sister and a 16 year old sister living at home, so they're still used to kids in the house lmao. I'm not living here during school, but I know that my parents miss me when I'm gone.

I think every situation is different for why you're a college student/adult living at home, I had myself a nice place in the city..condo close to downtown in a great area of town...

But my step pops had a stroke and that kinda forced me to move back in at home to help with bills and chores and taking him back and forth to the doctor cause my mom couldnt always get off work.

It's a big adjustment coming back after being away, but it's one I gladly made.

Pops is doing better now, I've saved a lot of money. I'm probably more financially capable now than I was before actually.

And in January before graduate school starts, I'm moving into a new city way farther from home, but I'm more prepared now than I was.

Here in Australia, unless you go to university interstate, I think generally, most people live at home. It's an entirely different experience.

I did this too for 3 out of my 4 years in college and it was awful. My advice would be instead of trying to save and pay to live at college, save the money for an apartment after you graduate.

I need a job to save money for that. Still haven't found one ))):

A friend pointed out to me that you miss out on meeting people if at home, rather then staying in the dorms. However, it is cheaper, so...I guess decide for yourself what you want to do.

Lived in the dorms first two years of school, loved it, but when I moved back home to save some money, it was awful. But my parents are very "if you live in my house you're going to follow my rules, which are the same weather you're 12 or 22," so it wasn't very comfortable. Moved out a year and a half ago, was the best decision I've made. I love them and see them all the time, but I don't have to worry about them breathing down my neck

I think I have met more people living at home than I would at school.

Good luck in the search- it's not easy out there right now (which I'm sure you're well aware of).
