When you first moved out of home and/or after college (meaning NOT counting dorms/campus housing), who did you live with?

Myself
13(28.9%)
Friend(s)
13(28.9%)
Random stranger roommate(s)
4(8.9%)
Other relative(s)
3(6.7%)
Significant other
12(26.7%)


(side note: I know a lot of people consider themselves "moved out" when they go to college and some people don't go back home even for summer, but for the purposes of this poll I'm really curious to know where you went outside the safety net of campus-sponsored housing. on the other hand, if you lived in non-student housing while going to college, that works for this question)

WAIT THAT REMINDS ME, I HAVE ANOTHER QUESTION. And sometimes polls break when I edit them, so...new poll!

And in what kind of place did you live?

Apartment
29(64.4%)
Rental house
3(6.7%)
Rented room in a house
8(17.8%)
Purchased house/condo/etc.
2(4.4%)
Other
2(4.4%)
N/A, I have only lived at home and/or student housing
1(2.2%)

Oh, I meant it for any age moving out, it was just if you went from high school graduation to a college dorm then I wanted to know what was after that. And wow, that is really young.

you missed one type of arrangement.
I moved into a residence for women in New York City
Maybe they no longer exist
It was in an old brownstone across from a park on the east side.
I had my own room and meals were served if you signed up for them.
I lived there for about a year.
After that I took an apartment with a friend for about six months until we both got our own apartments.

Wow - I've never heard of anything like that, it sounds pretty nice for when you're starting out.

It was great
A woman I was going to work with in NYC got me a room there. She had connections.
I met other women. One of whom is a friend to this day although we live in different parts of the country.
It was a great transition from college to independent living.

Moved into a room belonging to the mother of my boyfriend at the time. No, this wasn't as awkward as it sounds!

My first year out of High School I spent with my Aunt, Uncle, and their three sons. The eldest of whom was enrolled in the same Tertiary Course I was so we travelled to it together.
The year after I shifted into a House where everyone had their own room, we shared kitchen, toilet, shower etc. but didn't interact for the most part. I know the arrangement as a 'bedsit' I'm not sure how widespread that term is.
