The scenario sounds very "revellious runaway teen"...but I wonder if an adult would choose to sleep under the stars rather than living with people they hated?

For the night? Or for the next six months?

What scenario? Care to elaborate? Might make a tiny difference. On one hand you have the typical 8 year old who threatens to run away after they've been punished. On the other you have someone off their meds choosing to live under a bridge.

Well, I guess for some time...a few weeks or a few months, until there's enough money to pay a room somewhere else.

If that person could easily move somewhere else then there wouldnt be a dilemma, so there needs to be a strong reason why that person would make such a move.

The scenario of becoming homeless. Gentrification and speculative policies have made housing very expensive, some people with jobs cannot even afford to rent decent apartments , they are called "working poor". so imagine those who are unemployed...many people is forced to live with people (family or strangers) they dont want to.

So I wonder...would the prospect of living with people you hated their guts of make going homeless an option?

I meant the scenario for some particular person debating homelessness.

Adult with no substance abuse problems nor mental condition who just happens to dislike the people he or she lives with.


That person has two options:


1) Keep things as they are, meaning living with people he or she hates.

2) Going homeless, since there's no money for alternative place.

A lot of it depends on the situation. If I were living in my own house with someone I hated, they'd be gone. If I were living in someone else's house and the only other choice was homelessness, then the people I'd be living with are probably holding all the power and hate me too. I've been in that situation and it was miserable. I'd opt to move out regardless of whether I had another place to live.

I was in high school living with a family (not my own) when I was in that situation and I didn't move out. I came home from school to find all my stuff in the middle of the driveway at 4 in the afternoon. I would have been better off leaving before that happened.

No, because at least when you're in a home you would normally have regular access to a toilet, shower, and food. Anyway, if you're living in the great outdoors, how could you ensure that you wouldn't dislike whoever had the tent or park bench next to yours?

I rather live with people I hate. With few exceptions I usually end up liking people more the more I get to know them anyway. Besides, I don’t like the cold.
