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.

Not "all the way" moved out, but I got an apartment in the town I go to college at at 20 (last year). It's about an hour away from home, and I still come back to my parent's for vacations and some weekends. I'm a full time student without a job, and most of my friends/family/pets/everything else I love is still in my hometown, so I really only stay at my apartment for school.

I moved out last August, when I was 21. It was about 30mins away from my parent's house, but in the city I grew up in - my parents are just rural!

Next year we'll be moving far away - hoping for Mississippi due to being able to drive home in a day, but it may be California. That will be rough.

Went to college about an hour away at 18. Lived in the dorms but came home for weekends all the time. So I don't really count that.

Actually moved out (about 45 minutes away) when I was 22 to an apartment with roommates/friends.

Moved back home at 24 with a corgi and a Malinois in tow.

My poor parents.

I'm hoping to be out again within a year or two, hopefully in some kind of house. I had awesome landlords but renting/apartment living was not for me so much.

Moved across the country for college at 18. Never moved back. It's about 8 hours (and $450) of flights to go home, so it only happens once a year

22 and still at home! Don't think I'm anywhere near close to being able to afford moving out. Finished school 2 years ago. Working full time.

First time was 18 for college 400 miles away then I moved back in at 22(?) to take care of my mom when she had cancer. I also stayed with family a few months right after college was over and between jobs. That sucked. Lol

Can't wait to buy a house.
