The thing is that I live at home because I go to a community college. I'm actually embarrassed to say that, but I always have to include that I'm going to be transferring to one of the top tech colleges in the US.
I don't work because I focus solely on my schoolwork. I do work during the summer though.
I've noticed in real life that this is seen as "unattractive". I've also read on a forum here that "a girl can live at home with her parents and be jobless, but it's not right for the man to be living at home and jobless."
Why is this true?
Is this really true?

It's not unattractive at all :) Sounds smart to me, save the money and spend time at home with your folks. I guess in American culture there's a good amount of emphasis on when you're 18, you're independent and should be forced to be as independent as possible so negative stereotypes are especially made against guys who live at home ("video gamer who lives in parent's basement"). I think the stereotypes are silly though. Don't worry about it too much. Everything you said above sounds legit, and I can't imagine most nice girls turning it against you when it comes down to it.2
