There's no predetermined age someone should move out of their parent's house, but it'd be nice if they could move out before the age of 40.The only thing I'm scared about growing up is that god damned math.... I've failed that god damn course 2 years in a row, coming on 3....

I doubt I'll ever be able to live on my own. I'm on a fixed income (SSI - can't work, no experience, nobody wants me due to disabilities) and food stamps, which I barely get by on after other expenses, yet somehow I don't qualify for rent assistance, so I can't move into an apartment even though I very badly want to.

No doubt. Even though I'm young in age, my capacity for dealing with 'mature' things is rather high. Both my parents aren't very good with using modern technology so I pay all the bills online, clean the house, and cook. I'm also a bit determined and a hard-worker so one I do move out hopefully I'll be stable cx .

1 - I'm currently living on my own. it was really hard at first, but luckily, i have been saving up money from when I was able to get a job, at 16 years old, so moving in wasn't AS tough. keeping up with rent is what really made me lurch. It's not so hard, now that i have a proper savings plan. i may not be able to buy nicer things for myself, but i'm happy with what I have now, anyway. it gets a little lonely, too, especially at first when i would literally cry at night because i had no one to talk to. and i've learned that even having pets won't fill this empty void. but i've gotten used to it, and liked being alone. of course, i have friends that i could kick it with if i feel too neglected by society.

2 - I think any age is fine, just as long as you are ready, and if your parents don't kick you out! my parents offered for me to stay with them until i was at least 20, bless their hearts, but the second i got accepted into college, i moved right on into the apartments i live in now.

3 - Right now, i don't know what i want to pursue as a full time career. i'm making good money right now, but i'm not content yet! my classes are not a waste of time, though, as were my classes the previous semester. perhaps i can become a dance choreographer or teacher? or pursue photography/film? or all of the above? i'm stressing about this, but i know i'm not the only one, so i suppose that's okay.

Currently in my senior year of high school and working on my final decision of where to go to college, so I'm starting to freak out about this..
I guess living in a dorm is not really independent, so to speak, but it'll be the first time I've been so far from my parents for that amount of time, and I won't be able to rely on them for simple things like laundry/etc., so I guess I'll be learning a lot about the first steps to living on my own there. Technically I'm probably mature enough to live on my own, and after learning a couple tips and tricks to keep myself going I'd probably be able to manage living on my own, but I'm not very confident and that scares me.

So.. will I be ready? Physically, maybe. Mentally, heck no.

I'm also surprised, but more so at the fact that their parent's are lazy as hell, good for the person when they grow up, but it speaks volumes about what kind of parents they have.

I apologize, could you please clarify about what stuff you mean? Do you mean fun stuff or the work related stuff the other girl does? I'm a bit confused, sorry.

Yeah I suppose my parents are a bit too reliant on me, but I'd rather be partially understanding of the world's social ladders and all the other things then be ignorant. I just hope they adapt after. It kind of sucks since instead of living like a kid, my logical mind interferes with most of that. It depends on whose parents people are blessed with, my dad is busy with work and my mom can't do much since she developed arthritis at an early age, my two older brothers are never home, so I'm left with the chores.

Rambling online to strangers. My apologies Sir or Miss if you got bored through out it xD .

Yes, the work related stuff or at least do those things at the age sixteen. I probably learned a few things but forgot over time.

Heh, the last thing you have to worry about is boring me with that kind of stuff since I find myself doing that all the time, but now I feel really bad about saying what I did, since I understand completely why they might have to depend on you to the extent they do, so I apologize if what I said sounded a bit harsh, but even if you think it didn't I apologize anyways

Badly if my wife leaves me I'm screwed, I don't know where anything is in the house, she puts my clothes out for work brings me my breakfast while I watch the news in bed, then makes my pack up for work.
