Default How old were you when you moved out?

How far away from your family did you move? Were you going to college?

I had JUST turned 18 a few weeks prior to moving out. I moved an hour away to a much larger city, for school. Didn't end up staying in school, never went back to live with/near my parents.

I was 19. It was very...sudden. Not planned at all. I moved to a family friend's rental about two miles away for about 5 months and then 1,000 miles away for a touch shy of a year.

I was going to school when I moved out and I did finish up my semester. However, I didn't return (though plan this September). I've got no regrets, though I do wish it had been under different circumstances.

Oh, my dog came with me and sadly my horse was sold before we went West.

I was 21. I moved about five miles away, and I was going to school, although that's not why I moved out.

I was 16 when I moved out to live on my own in an apartment belonging to a bunch of college kids.

I did the college thing for 4 years after high school and lived about 3 hours away. Then about a month and a half after I graduated, I got married and lived 2 hours away. I liked living 2-3 hours away. I do not like living 9.5 hours away, but I think there is a weird thing that happens in the 7-12 hour range. It's short enough that it could be a day of driving back home, so you feel compelled to go back for 'things'. But it's a full days drive, so you spend 2 days of your trip in the car and are grumpy about it

I was 23 and I moved out of my dads in London, Ontario to Harrisburg, PA about 9-10 hours away to live with my husband

I moved away to college when I was 18. Graduated and moved back in when I was 22. I moved out again (for the last time) when I was 24.

Just shy of my 18th birthday I moved 2.5 hours north for school for 4 years, then a couple hours south of their house for another year of school and settled in where I work/live 45 minutes east of them.
