    Has anyone ever felt like this? I am close to my sisters and cousins but once I have to meet their friends I just feel a bit uncomfortable I don't feel like i should be there. Does anyone get that?

    I feel like a bit of an outsider about my parents -- they always misinterpret what I mean then I end up in a mess = sit upstairs away from them

    How close are you to moving out/going to university people often find their relationship with family gets better when they are living out of the house.

    I think it is pretty common actually i dont feel like i should be here at times, only place i feel totally comfortable is my room.

    :yep: always feel like this and always have, I don't have anything in common with my family really/spend most of my time in my room. Trying to 'talk' usually ends in some sort of argument. It was better in the other holidays christmas/easter etc. since university but not the summer holidays. 2 months down 2 left to go and AHHHHH get me out! (I know for a fact my family are thinking the same thing :p:)

    EDIT: it seems I have misread the original post, deary me but yeah I always feel akward about meeting my brothers friends and do my best to avoid them in the house

    Try and contact the uni saying you personal circumstances have changed and that you are looking for accomidation, they will have a list of different options if they cant offer you uni based accomidation, they have private sector stuff that they can put you in touch with.

    that may be the way to go then....

    I used to feel like an outsider but now the household has completely collapsed so it's just like we're 3 separate people who happen to sleep in the same house....
