    In the present state the UK is in a lot of guys in their twenties like me are forced to live with their parents. It really sucks.

    One question i'm asked by women sometimes is where do i live? I see there no point in lying because what am i going to to do after i lie about living in sone nice city centre apartment? There's a huge expectation and assumption every guy has his own place.

    Living at home i feel is really affecting my sex life (i'm currently single). I mean it seems women are turned off by a man who has to live with their parents anyway and plus i respect my mum. I could never bring a woman home at 3am in the morning. I'd get booted out for it also.

    I'm imagining for women who are forced to live at home it's not even that bad.

    I have the same mindset irregardless of gender; I don't see what the problem with it is, so long as they are actively working towards their independence. If people want to judge you for it, then fine...they're not a fit for you. There's plenty of others who won't judge and will be fine with it.

    Can't see why it would be tbh. I'm gonna be living at home for the next few years. But I'm saving up to buy my own house. I guess if a guy came across as incredibly lazy and unambitious, it may be a factor but don't see it as the end all and be all.

    Isn't asking 'Where do you live?' a different question to 'What do you live in'?

    You're giving the answer for the second question as the answer for the first.

    Nah, the whole traditional Sunday roast and Yorkshire puddings thing isn't my bag. Sunday's a normal day to me.

    What's the problem with living "at home"? Depending upon where you live, it is the number one living expense (by far).

    One might argue that instead you could keep costs down by living with other people (very common in Germany for example, WGs Wohngemeinschaften, or living communities) or with friends, but from my own experience, coming home from work to your own place and actually feeling at home is a pretty important factor.

    I used to live independent from my parents but now due to me doing my masters (which cost me a fortune) I moved back in with them so I could concentrate on my studies.

    Ive found it to be a huge turn off for guys which I was surprised about. Ah well.

    When I do move back out again, it'll be hell to find somewhere as Ill have a dog with me this time.

    Not really. Although I tend to go for older secure men, I once had a crush on a guy who lived at home.
