Can you ever grow up properly if you never leave home?
I'm 32, still single, and live in the small town where I was born. I have a decent job and could afford to live in my own place. But there is no need to do so given my parents have a big house. They would be hugely offended if I upped sticks. Plus in a small town they would be conscious people might think we had fallen out. Living at home has lots of perks but it is also a bit of a timewarp. My mum still fusses over me and is very protective. She worries if I'm out late on my own so in effect I have a curfew. She worries about what I eat and is very cool towards any of my friends she disapproves off. She comes shopping with me and shakes her head at anything she thinks is not what a nice girl would wear- gosh, even thongs are verboten!
