Some folks started talking about the importance of living on your own in the other thread, so I have some questions about that. After way too many delays, I am finally moving into my own apartment, AND the dating thing is starting to pick up; so this is a timely topic for one of your resident NEY single ladies.
-Did you/your SO live on your own? If not, do you wish you had?
-What good things came from living on your own? What sucked?
-Would you date someone who had never lived on his/her own before? If so, under what circumstances?
-By what age do you feel someone should move out of their family's home?
-How do you feel about working adults who live with family until they can afford a house (instead of "throwing away money" on rent or similar philosophies)?
-Do you consider living with roommates to be living on your own?
I feel like I posted some of these questions a while ago, but we have so many new folks that I would love to hear chime in. (Also, apologies, but I probably won't be able to respond again until tomorrow evening, work has been bananas lately!)
ETA: Because grammar and syntax are beautiful things.
