What age did you/should you move?

Hey y'all, I am just curious, but how old did you move out of your childhood diggs/what age should one move out of home?

Myself, I moved out when I was 17 to go to college, though my mom still paid for the dorm, I guess you could say I just moved further away. I didn't get truly independent until I was 18 and got my own place.

    I want to move out...

    But I don't know if I will.

    I wouldn't get a dorm, though, I'd rather get an apartment with some friends.

    Moving in with friends is not always the best idea.
    I know many a friendships that were strained, nay, tarnished because people moving out for the first time move in with those they have too close of a bond. All those little things about your bud's that you never really cared about (farting in a closed room, opening all the windows or keeping all the windows closed), will eventually grind on your nerves. Not to mention all those things that you never thought your BEST FRIEND will ever do, like leave dishes unwashed, use up all the toilet paper, and eating YOUR food in excess.
    My advice is to move in with someone who you know well enough to not steal from you, who is clean and most of all, PAY THEIR RENT & UTILITIES, and ON TIME.

    Pretty much this. Unless you can't stand someone living in your house, or you're comfortably making enough to strike out on your own, it's financially retarded to just start throwing money away on rent.

    Unless your parents aren't OK with you bringing home male prostitutes.

    Karl.

    Karl is this what happened.

    I still live with my folks and I'm 25

    it's cheap, and our house is awesome.

    if I moved out, I'd be living in a significantly shittier house and paying more money for the privilege.

    also my parents are pretty cool and it means I get to see my nephews more often.
