Just a general question I suppose but, how long was it before you got a job and got into the real world?
Ok.
#2
Never, I'm in high school.

But when I go to college, they'll both be in different countries so yeah.

My ex did the same. Cheated on me and then acted like I'd given her sister a facial. Women are retarded.

I moved out at 15....
Got kicked out at 15, then went to my sisters till I was 17.

Had my first real job at 16, and am currently unemployed. I'm 20.

Does it count if your parents own 2 houses and you live at one, but they don't intend to live there til retirement? I'm planning on doing that soon.
I'm rgrockr and I do not approve of this message.

I read somewhere that the average age is 25.

Sure, you got those who left at 18. I know one who did, and she's done pretty well for herself. The others that I know at that age became pregnant and look 10 years older than they shlould be, or, they are unemployed and I have no idea how they get by.

However personally, I'm staying at my mom's house until I graduate uni and get a job. So...24-25 for me if all goes well.

On the other hand, some others will take longer. Obviously.

I moved out the day after I graduated high school when i was 17. Lived in an apartment for 10 months until i couldn't afford it any more (damn economy!) and now I'm back at my parents. :/
#9
I live at my parents and go to uni, I am 18 turning 19.

But I kinda wish I lived on campus. I'm grateful I'm living in comfort but am I really missing out on 'unmissable' experiences?
#10
18, when I started university. Still haven't got a job though.

I can't believe you are whoring yourself out like that.

Average for Spain and Italy is close to 30 before you move out. Low wages and a lack of "cheap" residences are the main problems

I moved out last autumn, age 21.

19. Graduated from highschool and then moved out to follow my dreams.

Nearly killed myself while doing that, but I'm doing okay now.
#16
If you count moving out for uni, then 18.

But I don't think that really counts. Inevitably, I will be back on their doorstop, unemployed and needing shelter until I get back on my feet.
#17
It really depends on which culture you are from. For example it's normal in some parts of Southern Europe to live with your parents untill you finished your education. In Scandivia where I am from, the average age is about 18-20. If you stay home much longer, people will think you are a bit of a freak.
Alright people, Move along - there is nothing to see.

That can also depend on whether you go to uni in your home town or you are moving to another university town. I'm still in Gothenburg where I was born and therefore I lived a bit longer at home.

16, moved in with my then-girlfriend in a small apartment close to the woods and a forest lake. Those were the days, heh.

It was seriously depressing because I was completely alone and the stress of being extremely poor really messed me up, I had a lot of seriously self-destructive habits for those two years, but thankfully I came out of it alright.

Aw, glad it's okay now. I had the same empty feeling and still have from time to time. Sometimes I forgot that I really live on my own now, I don't have anyone in the apartment.

Last 6 months I've slipped a bit, letting the grades go down a bit and been out to the pub more frequently. Hope I can change that to the autumn again.

It's kinda hard to judge. My parents live in Los Angeles so once i graduated highschool I went to college at Penn State, which is a pretty good distance from LA. Out there i got an apartment with a good friend from Turkey but i come home for the summers. I get free meals at stuff at home but my parents don't give me money or gas for my car or anything. I have a job back at school but not here in LA so I'm currently trying to find one so I can put a buffer on my bank account for when school starts.
Currently Playing:
Arma 2/3, Dayz, GW2, GTA, Splinter Cell, ESO, FF:X, Pokemon X

I 'moved out' for university when I was 19. I'm now 20 and back at my parents until September when I get my lease on my new house. Don't really consider it moving out though.

Well I go to the military this summer (I'm 19) and after that I move to another town for university studies, so I guess 19 or 20 depending on how you look at it..

I am 19, and have lived in an apartment owned by my parents since 16, by myself and my brother.

I will move away this fall though, but that's for a year. After that, I'm planning on leaving the country (Norway) for studying abroad, namely in England/Wales/Scotland.

Kind of moved out when i went to uni, then i went on an exchange for my 3rd year and spent 9 months (except a few weeks at christmas) living in another country, but now im back. So used to living on my own terms can't wait til my rental period starts for new student house in july.
I can't see myself living at home after i graduate in just over a years time. With my degree, and the career i want to get into there wont be many opportunities around where i live. Right now im considering moving to australia once im done with my degree.

19 moved out and living mostly on my own. i get a bit of cash from my parents every once in a while. but nothing more than spending money
#35
18. Found a place in NY for about $700 a month. Did that until 21 and moved down to TN with my fiancee where we found a 1 bedroom for less (and a lot nicer).
#36
Im 19 and still living with my Mom. I go to college. I probably will not move out until college is done but if I can find a roommate/friend that is willing to split rent for a while I will move out in an instant.
#37
I want to move out, but there's lots of stuff I want to do/ get first and if I'm living on my own, there's no chance I'll be able to get or do any of that.
#39
Moved out to go to uni at 18, now I'm just about finished my degree, so it looks like I'll have to move back in until I can find myself a job, whic is a bit of a shame. Hopefully, not too long though.
