Ok, so one of my girlfriends has been getting on well this guy for a while now. Last week she finds out the dude is STILL living at home despite being 34years old, but my question has a twist. When she found out his living arrangements, he said it wasn't with his Mother, it was with his Father like that makes a difference. So does it make a difference? I think he did actually move out at some stage, but then for whatever reason moved back later. He claims it's till he finishes studies but who knows how long that will take.

Society views parents differently:
If you're a 34-year-old guy living with your mom - you're a loser mama's boy.
If you're a 34-year-old guy living with your dad - you'll most likely be viewed as a dude, who's going through some problems and a lot will assume you and your dad live like roommates, splitting rent etc, rather than the dad fully supporting him.
Living with your parents at 34 is a fail in my eyes, regardless which parent you're living with.
But obviously there are different circumstances that caused that to happen. Perhaps he was living fine on his own for over 10 years, then shit happened and he had nowhere else to go, so he's back with his parents for now.
As long as it's not a permanent/longterm arrangement, I think it's fine. But if he's there, because he never bothered to get a place of his own and it's just convenient to mooch off your mom and dad, then that guy can go sling his hook.1
