I am 26 and living at home; i help contribute and also save rather than spend a crazy amount on rent or to live with 2 roomates like i know some do. I see it as more worthwhile in the long run for me to contribute at home and also save for my future and maybe even purchase something in a few years to come.
Since I am at home though; i spend more time hanging around my parents than other people. The thing is I haven't really been up to socializing. I find alot of the times when I am in groups and out I just don't really enjoy myself. Sometimes i do but for the most part i don't. I am single and would much rather spend my time with a significant other or a few good friends.
I am on an online dating site which i think is the best option because after work and working out etc it's hard to find the energy to go out all the time to different places or wherever with a tiny hope that maybe i will meet someone.
But i see other people everywhere who seem to spend more of their free time out and about and not really with their families at all. I actually feel bad sometimes for not spending time with my mom and then at the same time i feel i should be doing something else.
I think the major thing that i want in my life is a boyfriend again. It's been a number of years that i have been single; So i honestly think in some way it has brought me down a little...everywhere i go i see couples around my age and i am spending time with my mother on a saturday afternoon into the early evening.
Does anyone else spend time with their parents or mothers like this? Or is going out no matter where with others more of a priority? Most of the people i know are in relationships or engaged or married so it is another reason online dating is a better option. Alot of the times these friends will just want to do something where basically i would probably have a slim chance in meeting someone.
i guess it has been hard for me to enjoy myself lately when i see basically everyone on facebook or in real life doing anything but spend time with their parents like the way i do at my age. Everyone's situation is different so i guess just looking for input, opinions etc.
