Host Thoughts on Dating While Living At Home
Living at home with your parents and trying to date is definitely challenging, I won’t say that it’s not.
It’s not impossible to get into a relationship while living at home and you should be honest with the person you’re on a date with about your living situation. There shouldn’t be a stigma attached to living at home. There is no shame it in.
While I never lived with my parents and tried to date except in high school, I’ve dated several people who lived with parents or grandparents, and have seen how frustrating it can be. Additionally, having roommates has made it occasionally tricky when things get intimate in public spaces, too. Should you try to date if you live at home? Absolutely – just set some boundaries and if your parents push back, just be brutally honest with them until you embarrass them so much they leave you alone!
