    My parents are very strict on some things but the complete opposite with other things. They trust me with this, and encourage me to leave home and see the world rather than lock me up in the small town I'm from. I like them a lot.

    Thats really good how you have supportive parents, don't get me wrong they aren't 'locking me up' my dad is just scared I think.

    My parents, especially my dad, seem fine with me moving out as they are quiet liberal. However, on a few occassions my mom mentioned moving out with me and getting a house somewhere near my univeristy, which shocked me a little bit.

    I live in Liverpool (aka away from home) and my parents can sometimes be iffy about me living away but have gotten used to it, although would have preferred me living closer to home like Leeds or Huddersfield.

    I get where you are coming from. Thats what puts me in a dilemma cuz my parents have done everything for me and I'd feel selfish if I just left at the first chance I got.

    Oh wow lol, I can understand though it must be difficult for parents to say goodbye to their kids. If you look at it from their point of view I guess I get it.

    Naa it isnt anything like that. I wanted to move because i hated commuting (for me its about an hour going and an hour coming back) but then i realised i love being with mother more than i hated commuting so i stayed and havent looked back since.
    But honestly if leaving is something you want to experience then do it, its better than reminiscing over and regretting not moving away and missing out on something you really desired but if its not too big of a deal for you then it shouldnt be much of a problem
