Looking at some of your posts here you are 21-22, do not have a degree yet, no work experience to speak of, consider yourself as above average looking "gay bait", know what employers think/want/do.

And I agree with you, my brother's six-figure salary should allow him to afford a NJ apartment on his own. I think he is kind of dumb and wasting his time in this toxic household. He just move to some cheaper equivalent of NJ

I definitely don't have the prestige on my resume to get his kind of salary, but that's why I prefer a low cost of living area like New Mexico, Arizona, Idaho, or some random semi-rural town in the Northwest.
With that comes less job opportunities though.


NYC is expensive, no doubt, but there are also any & every kind of job here you can think of.


You are limiting your potential in those areas in my opinion, though I guess it depends on what you want to do career-wise.

You're correct, I did not mean to imply they don't know what they want to do, I meant to imply that their life is in a state of known change (buying a house, marriage, new job, etc.) that getting one's own place isn't in their best interest at that moment. Good call out.

I do have work experience besides retail. I had an IT intern and I have my part time job where I lied and said I do some basic IT related stuff there.

Hardly. We just built an expensive granny flat for mom on the front of our place to the tune of an extra 275 grand. Nice ocean views. Myself and my sis both moved out before age 18 as it was a small town at the time.

I'm about to turn 31. Still living with my dad. Ive lived out of state for short times, and came back. I'm still trying to find a good job in my field that I love going to everyday and where I am financially stable long term. Its hard for him to let me leave because he still sees me as his little boy and doesn't want to let go.
