    Well, it sounds like it's not living with your parents that has you down, it's that you're seperated from your college chums.

    I think you are just lamenting your old dorm room comradery. You spent every second around your bros, and now it's over. Well, no matter where you live you ain't getting that back. Sorry, but that era is over. I'd need to know where you currently live and where you went to school to offer further advice on this matter. But your college pals might not be as happy as you think or as they let on.

    Your parents sound good, so realize that they are the only ones you can fully trust and count on in the world. Man, being your age and having money, while living at home can be the best. Don't you know any crackers in your area before you went to school? Ahh, you'll make new aquaintences at your age, don't sweat it.

    And girls.......dude, don't get to atatched at your age. Don't think, " Oh I'll spent the rest of my life with her." No you won't. People change ALOT from their early twenties into their late twenties. You don't really settle into your own or know who and what you are until your late twenties. So save that serious romantic relationship for later in life. **** it took me until my late 30's, but that was because of.........right, Kassers vodka.

    You have a good job now that you hate. I dig it, man. I did the wrong thing at your age. I worked then drowned my sorrows in Kassers vodka. While you have the job that is bringing in money, start looking for employment that you like........Really, do it. I know it's hard to get motivated aboot job searching when you already got one, but just do it. You don't have to be desparate cause you got money. So you can spend time and hopefully settle into something you like.

    Dude, you are young, you'll meet people in your area. Just get out there. You go through different eras in life. Life's a certain way for 6 months.......two years.........and then it changes. And new things, new people appear. Just be positive and don't drink.........Kassers vodka.

    So the kid that is poking fun at wounded warriors in another thread also happens to be in a "tough" part of his life. Nice. Don't the growth hormones from suckling off the parental teat (literally) develop the brain properly? Looks like this chap's getting some bad milk.

    We've nearly got some wounded warriors on this forum. Lets see how much sympathy and advice they have for this kid. Oh, but he was just joking. Right.

    It's always fun to get advise from perfect strangers. My best guess is your situation would be more tolerable if you got laid once in a while. Try joining a yoga class, and things should work out quite nicely. Namaste young man!

    I moved out at 23. Unlike you I never finished college, worked crap job to crap job and had parents that let me know every day since I was 18 that I wasn't welcome, it was easy to do when the opportunity came up. Thankfully for me I found a girl that saw something in me that I didn't and was willing to let me wander through life until I found my place, it was a long journey to get where I am today. If I had parents like you it would have been hard to leave. I would set a date 2 years from now, save every penny I could, and dream of what I was going to do when I left home. I would let my parents know everyday how thankful I was and fill them in on my plans. 22 or 24 is not that old when you get to my age and look back. I look at pictures of my self at 25 and I look like a baby.

    This sounds like a good idea to me. And...make the most of your current situation. Go have some fun. Get out and do things, adventure usually follows.

    Good advise! In this uncertain economy, and you having a cush job...take full advantage and not only save, but invest. You are young and can be comfortably independent in a short year or two. Bite the bullet and thank your folks for all their continued support. I'm not joking about the yoga class - you'll meet some awesome chicks and learn to ease up on lots of your impulsive desires and you will be content, if not totally thrilled with your blessed life. Join Surfrider, you'll meet some great people and have a network of bros you can meet and travel with and life will be grand.

    I'm kind of in the same boat bbut not really? im 21 and still at home while im going to school but i live right on the beach and 20 minutes from my school so i just commute. I havent gotten really close to anybody at school so maybe im not in the same boat. Surfing has really gotten me not very interested in girls or whatever all my friends are doing. I just kind of go surf. i just like to be by myself. My parents are split because my dad walked out on us so i live with my mom and help pay all the bills so i cant really save money either. just kind of going with it you know? My mom loves me being at home and she always said that i am always welcome no matter what so why not save money on a dorm room or an apartment? my point being is family is really the only thing that you truly have in life. we are here for only a short time so spend it wisely with the ones you love because they will never leave you high and dry because even when they seem to not care, they really do. So my 2cents is to stay and enjoy it. They wont be around forever.

    Dude... You need to chill. I'm new to this forum and all the posting and lurking I have done has made it seem like the atmosphere around here is more fun/joking than serious. I'm sorry my joke seemed to offend you. If it makes any difference I have nothing but respect and admiration for wounded warriors. I even backed off a girl that was really into me to give an Iraqi veteran who lost a leg in combat a chance at her; they are now I happy couple. I smile every time I see a picture of them together because I know it makes him happy.

    Anyways, to answer some of the questions asked, I graduated from the University of Mary Washignton with a degree in Biology. My grades were good, but not good enough for a profession like doctor or dentist. I currently work as an intermodal terminal manager which is a pretty hard job to get for a guy my age, but I was fortunate enough to be best friends with the son of a trucking executive... I realize I am very fortunate. Everything has been given to me and I have nothing but respect for those of you that worked for everything you have, be that a college education or a good job, etc. I realize my situation is not unique. This forum just seems like a very good resource, with an eclectic range of people from various backgrounds and age ranges, to seek advice on such a topic, as I'm sure several of you have gone through this phase yourselves

I have a decent paying job doing something that doesn't interest me and I could easily afford to move out, but I'm afraid of losing the oppurtunity to live at home for at least a couple years and save a huge amount of money to put towards a house when the appropriate time comes. My parents are fprtunate and generous enough to pay for a lot of my things (food, cell phone, insurance, etc.) and they aren't pushy about trying to force me out of the house. They are more than happy to have me there.

    The only downside to this plan is... I am completely miserable. All my friends from college live nowhere near me, my girlriend and I ended up breaking up because of the distance, and I have basically no time with work to meet new people. The isolation is killing me. Some of my friends have already moved out and are struggling somewhat financially but seem 10 times happier than I am just to be doing something new and exciting.

    Looking for some wiser-than-Is to offer some perspective or advice
    Dude, stay home and save money. Then quit that job that doesn't interest you, and travel for extended periods of time. See the world, it will teach you things you will never learn in a school. You might end up realizing things about yourself and life you never thought imaginable. The house can wait. If you buy a house you are a slave to pay it and stay in a job that might not interest you to pay for it. Only being able to travel and surf somewhere else 2 weeks out of the year. It's a big world out there with limitless possibilities. Don't get stuck in that college career house routine. You'll wake up one day on your 40's and realize what you've missed out on.
