    Well, I'll chime in.

    Unless struggling is just your thing, or you just can't stand it any more... I'd suggest you work (you do have a job, right?) and save every penny toward some sort of down payment on your OWN place. Not an apartment or a rental, but something you can buy and afford. Then you do what you want, unless you get a girlfriend or a wife ....

    I'm assuming you are male (DragonClaw doesn't sound like something a chick would come up with... maybe)

    And, let your parents know what you're doing. Who knows maybe this is the moment they've been waiting for and they'll spring for some green to get some wind beneath your wings.

    Well as far as adulting.... I am 58 and there are many things I do not adult well on. If you doubt me ask my wife she has the list. I also know cursive but no one can read it but me that that is only if I try with in a few weeks. I recently went through my notes from college. Couldn't read a word.

    You have learned the most important part of adulting. It is no shame to say, " I don't know how to do this, can you give me some advice. " You have gotten some good stuff here now filter it through what you know of your own circumstances. I liked Deputy's suggestion better than any I gave you.

    Oh yeah. I see there's s lot to filter through. I agree.

    I work, yes. More than full time. I've got a small savings, but I'm working on it. Been working with my ", Financial Health" advisor at the bank.

    Trying to get things on the up. I don't have any debt, I have pretty good credit (about 730), I have a somewhat working car (210K+) and am working on my EMTB. Single and ready to be unapproachable and akward. That's my life. But at least I've got guns, yep. People judge, Beretta doesn't.

    Thanks for all your ideas. It's not what you don't know, it's what you don't know you don't know.

    Considering there are now supposedly 57 genders, I'm not about to assume anything.

    ^^This. A town house or condo in a good area might be the way to go. Up here you can still get sn average condo / townhouse for less then a house, unless your in some rich fancy town/city next to the water n beaches here. Plus no worries on cutting grass, shoveling / plowing, most of them you get a garage and imo a good starter home.

    I dealt with insurance, there's no way I'm getting a condo or townhouse. Especially with a mortgage, it's a nightmare.

    But a mortgage is tax deductible; rent isn't. Average rent for a house around here is $750/month for a small place. If you bought the same house, the mortgage would be 1/2 to 2/3 of that AND deductible.

    Move to the coal regions here in Pa. Houses are dirt cheap. Bad thing is they stay dirt cheap.
