Ladies... if a man was 25, finished college, had a career, a car, perfect credit score, was financially secure... but no place (yet)... would you date him?
Okay, go ahead. Laugh at me. Call me lazy. Call me selfish. Call me a loser. I've heard it all.
I'm currently 25 years old and I finished college in the summer of 2014 with $30,000 worth of student debt. After all my friends finished college, they all got jobs, started working moved out and a majority of them are living with 2-3 roommates or living alone, paycheck by paycheck.
After college, I moved back home and it took me 7 months to find a job. I started working, started paying down my student loan debt... and now I have enough money to pay it off in full. I am debt free now. My parents told me they like having me around and they said I could stay as long as I like. I am moving out at the end of the year... but I am currently saving up for a new car before I move out.
On the dating scene, I always hear women say that if a man doesn't have his own place, they won't date him. HOWEVER... women will happily date a guy who is in a gang, has a low level job, has virtually no income, no car, etc, etc, etc... but if a guy doesn't have his own place, he is worthless.
I understand the perks of having your own place... but any idiot can move out and get their own place. All the people I have met who moved out immediately after college or way too young, are living with a lot of roommates or paycheck to paycheck.
A smart man would wait until he is ready, make sure he is financially set and then get his own place to ensure he doesn't have to live paycheck to paycheck or with 10 other people.

I would think care if he didn't own a place yet - I don't own a place yet either. But if he was living with his parents? Not interested. Anyone over 25 who isn't still IN school should be able to take care of themselves. Living with a roommate or roommates is fine, but freeloading of mom and dad? No. Just no.2

Having privacy is very important for a relationship. If you both live at home, you'll both be stuck like you're still in high school, trying to find time alone.
I have my own place and it proved to be quite a good thing not just for relationships but friendships too. Damned expensive but worth it!0
