Fellas *manly nod*



So some of you may be aware, for a year I'm moving back to the rental hizzy, and that's the PArental not the $29/night ho-tel now... So It's all good I'm not really worried about it except for the implications and the problems arising on the dating scene. I'll be a free man once I leave here, but let's face it: "hi, my name is warren, I'm a 28 year old unemployed philosophy graduate. I'm out of shape and I live in my parent's. Let's do it to it."



So, any words of wisdom for turning this lemon into lemonade???

Finding a woman with her own place is always a good option. Also, you might be able to cut a deal with a friend of yours that has a rent house or something. Back in the day I used to have a couple of places that, for a minimal sum, kept a room for me that I could use when I needed it. I also had a couple of motels that I dealt with that always had a place for me and was glad to see me arrive.



Also, be sure you present yourself in the best possible light. It's not "Hi, I live with my parents", it's "Hi, I'm saving money for my doctorate tuition before I go back to the university".

If your perspective partner freaks out over these things, is that someone you want to be with?



I think that it depends. Living with parents to save money while actively engaged in a job search is not bad. Living with parents because your parents need help is good. Living with parents in order to engage in a slacker lifestyle is not so good.

Just order chicken salad sandwich, untoasted with tea not coffee. When the beautiful blonde at the counter looks your way you walk right up to her and say, "Hi, my name is George, I'm unemployed and I live with my parents."



It works every time... well every time I see that episode of seinfeld. But if she's a seinfeld fan it's in the bag. Trust me.

But of course you know salmon is the opposite of tuna because tuna swim with the current and salmon swim against.

I definitely agree with both of these statements:

I wouldn't worry so much as long as you appear confident in your decisions. Are you?

I agree with kirk's sentiments, although I have to give Bank points for clever spin-doctoring.

I'd say honesty is always the best policy. Especially if you make it known up-front that this isn't anything permanent for you, just a "for right now" thing. Best of luck!

Of course, the best solution is: Don't live with my parents!!!



DC is just so damn expensive. I have another option: Live with my aunt. She's in the city, and while I'll have no more freedom than I'll have at the parents' place, at least I avoid the cliche of "living with my parents". I dunno...

You could slightly bend the situation and say that you're parents are briefly living with you. Maybe throw in a sob story about how they lost everything in a forest fire and that you love your family so much you just had to be there for them in their time of need.



Honestly I don't see anything wrong with it. As long as the woman sees that you're going to school and that you're working to acheive very specific goals I doubt it would be much of an issue.
