I live with my mom. I am a grown adult living with her mother. I feel like a teenager. The thing is that my step dad left my mom a while ago and my mom can't afford to live on her own. I could get my own apartment but then my mom would have to live in a dump she could afford. I can't do that! She works, but it's not enough. She is awesome by the way and has been a great mom. I pay all the bills. She buys the food. She never gets in my business.
The apt is cramped with her stuff and my stuff. It's not a proper home. Not how I would like it. The thing is I want to date a man. My living situation really kills that. My mom's room and my are on opposite ends, but it's still odd. Also, our apt doesn't reflect my taste in furniture or my style, and it's not what I want to represent. I have stayed away from meeting men and relationships because of this. The thing is that I don't want to stay single forever, but my living situation won't change soon. How much of a deal breaker is this? Am I making too much out of it? I've seen men put up with much worse, but I have high standards for myself and what I want to bring into a relationship. This is crazy, I can't just stay alone forever...

You are absolutely dateable. I'm younger than you (according to your stated age), but I also still live at home. I'm totally understanding of people, more than I would be had I not dealt with some strange and unusual circumstances, because life just doesn't quite work the same way for everyone. You deserve and would be well-matched with a man who has a similarly open mind.0
