Have you ever lived on your own?

And I mean totally on your own. No roommate, SO, or anything. Just you. I don't think this makes people any better then anyone else. I am just curious. I have never actually lived alone. It has always either been with my parents or my hubby. We lilved with his mom for a while too.

  • I did but it was only for about a year between living with my dad and my husband. I think its a great thing to do. It made me a little bit more independent. I'm a daddy's girl and I'm spoiled by hubby I couldve used more time on my own, lol.

  • No. Let me think:
    17 years Mom and Dad
    2 years bad roommates in dorm
    2 years wonderful roommate in dorm
    2 years graduate dorm, kind of on own but shared bathroom in suite.
    2 weeks Mom and Dad
    ever since with husband

    There have been long times since the boys have moved away that I've been on my own since husband goes on business trips, but it wasn't actually on my own since he comes home.

  • I lived totally alone for 4 months. I always slept on the couch... I couldn't sleep in my bed. I had to sleep close to the front door. It was weird, because normally I'm not a paranoid person.
