    For various reasons, whether it was bad relationships with family etc or just for the hell of it. (going to uni doesn't count)

    Thanks,

    17 whoch was even better for me since I was bullied at school and had no friends/social life and lived 8 miles from town to a small city where I had control of my life which meant life got so much better.

    It was a slow transition for me. Over the uni years I went home less and less, until by the time I graduated I never went home. Officially though, I moved out at 22 (i.e. have nothing of mine back at my parents house and don't have a key).

    INteresting. See I do have money saved up, but to me, spending 500 a month on a nice place - has to allow pets - seems like a hell of a lot. However, if I want a semi nice place, has to be semi expensive

    Why doesn't uni count, out of interest? I'm in halls atm and I wouldn't count that, but I'm moving to a studio flat which is going to be my little place. I don't rush back to my parents' house in every break, so I would consider that to be moving out, tbh.

    17. Why doesn't going to uni count? Even if you never moved back? If so, I'm not sure how I'm supposed to answer this question. Does this mean I technically still live with my parents even though I... uhh.. don't?

    Just as going to university means halls or rented accom with other students, still going home for most if not all breaks, however Cicerao, that does count I guess, Hmm spose I was a bit vague :P ah well!

    Do you rent now?
    Yeah. I'm only 23, too young to buy a house!! I guess I technically could, but I'm on a 3 year job contract and chances are I'll have to move once that ends, so a mortgage would overcomplicate things.

    No. My dad bought a new house, so I had to give back the keys I had to the old house and he didn't give me keys to the new house. Very shrewd move

    ahh that makes more sense. still a bit harsh that you weren't offered keys though, if one of them is out and forgets there key and can't get in for whatever reason it will serve them right for not offering you a spare.

    I live 4 hours away, so that wouldn't be very convenient.

    The north east :P it's dead expensive when your only on £400 a month!

    But if push comes to shove, I will pay out for it. Least I know my aunt'll furnish my house for me but again, with the whole pets thing, hardly anywhere allows them

    Still surely it's the thought that counts, means you could always go back, should you ever want to. And now with no key, you will always have to check first

    Going to uni still counts, as going to uni meant I moved out.
    So, almost 19.

    Ah, it doesn't matter. My dad lives in the middle of nowhere and I can't drive, so it's not like I'm ever going to just turn up anyway. When I was growing up he was the kind of father who couldn't wait for me to grow up and fly the nest anyhow. And now he *****es that I never visit. So he's just never happy


    As for this argument about whether uni counts, I'd say uni is half moving out unless you stay in your uni town all year round. Just my 2 cents...
