Here’s the situation – we’re still living at home. The rent is free, the laundry is in the building, and there are home cooked meals for everyone when they want it. It’s a pretty sweet deal – except when it comes to dating. There are some obvious challenges that come with living with your parents and also trying to get busy. Here are some things to keep in mind:
- Keep ‘em separate – Don’t make your parents meet every single person you go home with. Don’t invite people you barely know into your parents’ home.
- Spend most of your time outside of the house – Try not to dwell on the fact that you live at home by hanging out there.
- Make an effort to get to know the family – If you’re going to be interacting with them more, you’re going to want to at least be amicable.
- Communicate with your parents – Let them know when people will be coming over.
It can seem like your dating life has to come to a complete halt when you’re still living at home– but that’s not necessarily true. If you’re respectful about the situation and know of other cool spots to go to hang, you can manage to navigate a living at home relationship.
