    I'm not sure why your salary would offend me, given that it's no more than the starter salaries for my line of work. :wtf:
    My point was that you're not suddenly going to get a house/flat to yourself, run a car and go on multiple holidays with a mere £566 a month extra in your pocket than when you are earning £20,000 (especially when more holidays -> fewer worked hours).

    I'd imagine you weren't explaining that to me though, given I never said that anyone earning £20,000 should.

    I was just stating that £400 per month as an adult is quite uncomfortable, and I certainly couldn't live off it. You seem to be able to and well done for that! I can't understand why you were trying to imply that I overspend, or I cannot afford my lifestyle.

    Some of you lot on this website need to relax. Its never that deep

    How much would you need to earn to live a comfortable life (which doesn't just include necessities but also luxuries) in London?
    Well, 'luxuries' is very hard to define monetarily, you know. Luxury can be a nice week of in Mallorca, or a weekend shopping-clubbing spree in New York which can cost five times that.

    I'd say to afford basic luxuries (eat out twice on weekends, buy designer clothes, live in a decent area of zone 2, maybe afford a motorbike/scooter just for fun) you'd have to earn GBP55k.

    LOL I'm a university student.
    F-ing get out of this thread then, it's meant for people to post their salary expectations once they graduate and work full-time - and me correcting their expectations, of course.

    I cycle into town and walk to work, so I don't need a car.
    Only because you don't need one doesn't mean that you could afford one.

    Why does it matter how big and modern my "pad" is?

    You're not going to get what you seem to describe until you're earning well over £35k.
    Never said anyone would. Life starts at 35k, what I describe requires more.

    (Original post by CJKay)
    I assure you that you are vastly underestimating the cost of the things you describe (at least if you want to live comfortably as well).
    Funny, because I have/do all these things

    I'd wanna start off at reasonable: 25 grand. More than enough for one person in my opinion. But I'd expect a quick rise to above 35 grand in several years.
