    I love my parents rather much and if anything were to happen to either of them, I think it would break my heart so much so that I'd struggle to go on living.

    I haven't lived with my parents for 6 years, despite a short period when I was between jobs a few years ago. In terms of literally not living with them, I'm good, I don't miss them that much. But I do enjoy seeing them and appreciate my family way more now that we're not under each others feet. If they disappeared from the face of the earth, I couldn't live with that.

    How come?
    The complete and utter lack of privacy, also being in a very remote village/tiny town is quite tedious

    I love them but I could carry on in life without them, however the financial support is very necessary

    Yes, easily after getting over the split for whatever reason.

    We get along fine, better when I'm not living at home, and I've never been able to talk with them (or anyone for that matter) about how I feel etc.

    I am close to them and get on with them very well, but I could do without them (and will, come september). Your poll options suck.

    Well they give me lots of money to live on, food when I go home, a home when I go home :p:

    so as much as \i'd like to think to, no D:

    I think if I was my own financially independant being though, I woiuld be able to, the only reason I really go home is to see my dogs LOL

    No.

    I mean, I'll (hopefully) be going to uni next month on the other side of the country, so I won't be living at home anymore but if anything were ever to... happen to my parents I would be utterly devastated.

    Having been doing so for a while now. At first its hard but over time you'll get used to it. Steep learning curve.

    I could, yes. But I'd be worried about them... seems funny, but I wouldn't like to leave them until I'm a bit older.

    i caaan't wait to move out... and i feel this way since about 3 years. I really can't stand being with my parents at most times, and the tmospher between us is often so extremly tense, that it really doesn't feel comfortable at home ...
