Yes, and a poor attitude (among other things). You are so worried about where the most gay guys are per square mile....but you won't be bagging any mate's with your awful, entitled attitude...and other issues.

It's a temporary bridge to returning to an independent lifestyle. People move back in with their parents from time to time, sometimes. I've seen entire families do it, when relocating for example, or because someone got divorced, or laid off, etc, etc. A parent who doesn't recognize a tough time for their child and is unwilling to do ANYTHING to help out, is simply a neglectful parent, IMO. What the hell is wrong with staying with my parents for JUST a few months to actively look for a job in the area while cutting my losses? I mean, I suppose I COULD stay at an extended stay hotel or sublease apartment, but how stupid that would be!
Almost every one of your posts reeks of entitlement; "my parents are wealthy", "i'm going to inherit millions", "i have loads of cash saved up", "I've got job possibilities out the ying yang", free rent with the parents...etc. Cant you see how you portray yourself to others? You back and forth like a whipsaw about what to do, where to go, how many gays per sq mi, but always quick to point out you have the mommy and daddy to fall back on. You need to do less talking and more doing, get to it. Jeez

Alright, I think this thread has run its course. Starting to go in circles. I'm going to lock it.
