Stay in a rental with rent going up 15% or move in with parents for 6 months to save up money and pay off all debt? Although, it would put a strain on the family relationship and lose a bit of freedom/personal space.

I always vote to move back home IF you have a healthy relationship with your parents. If 6 months at home will truly put a strain on it, don’t do it. But if 6 months just means it’ll be inconvenient but tolerable, then maybe do it.


Nov, dec, Jan, Feb, March, april r all fun months
u def want ur own place
Unless u live in Alaska, den just move back wit parents forver


Damn even autocorrect couldn't save your ass


If 15% doesn’t drastically impact your lifestyle then I would stay.


I would personally stay on my own vs moving in with my parents. If paying debt is a priority, I’d look at other ways to trim my budget or look at getting a side hustle.

I have a great relationship with my parents, but it’s better when we don’t live together and have our own separate, adult lives. I also highly value independence.


That’s your call. We can’t quantify how bad or good each option is because there are small nuances that I’m sure matter to you and you’re not telling us.


Not asking for anyone to make a decision.

Just thoughts on an all too common situation for many, especially with the current market.


How about move into an Airbnb? They have single room options which are pretty reasonable, the next few months are expensive months so moving back with parents would save you some money but it’s not the most attractive look and as you mentioned, it would be an inconvenience to your folks. .


Depends a lot on your context. I didn’t move out after college and still live at home at 25. The savings is pretty spectacular


If your parents are nice and welcoming go home. I did it and I’ve paid off so much debt. I’ll be at my last 15 in December from 75 early 2021.


What are you confessing?

That they've already moved back in with their parents


If you can clean the slate in six months, that’s a small price to pay. Have it spelled out clearly ahead of time with specific dates.

It really depends on various factors. Main one is how much debt you have and also, how long will it take you to pay off all your debt. If the time frame is more than a year or two, I would continue living by myself and look other ways to cut my budget.

I'd stay on my own

I feel like 15% raise is illegal but I guess it depends on where you live.

Hi fishes! Nagarro declined the counter offer letter ₹33,00,000 + shares worth 4.5LPA

I've 6+ yrs experience (mobile dev.)

Nagarro offered 18LPA. Initially I told HR for 22 but he mentioned 18 into their internal portal to their senior so after clearing all interview rounds I got 18.

When I asked the HR, he told me to accept it for now and bring the counter offer letter so they can revise offer letter.

But now they declined. Weird.

So last Saturday I went out for drinks and dinner. An hour into my drinking and eating. A guy and a girl show up, sat opposite to me. I could tell it was a first date. She was very beautiful, and I couldn’t stop admiring her beauty 🙈🥴🥴🥴. The date was short. Think I’ll go back incase she shows up again. I might have a chance; I caught her staring at me few times😏.

Are there really such things as “guy movies”? I’ve been married a long time and known a lot of people over the years. I just saw Bullet Train and really liked it. IMDB rated it high so I suggested watching it with my wife. It turned out to be very Quentin Tarantino-esque and she really didn’t like it. Same with British humor (in the US anyway). I thought In The Loop was hilarious, and of course Monty Python. I know there are exceptions but, honestly, I haven’t found many.


So kind of gross post but I am fu*king terrified of getting an std. my friend works at a women’s health center and tells me it’s crazy how common stds are, like people would be shocked. Also heard horror stories from my friends/parents about people they know who had the same partner since HS and then broke up, slept with another person once and BAM gential warts for life. I am so afraid that I’m 24 and haven’t ever had sex. Does anyone else have this fear?

I’ve been meeting people who point out the color of my skin too many times for me not to notice. For context: im middle eastern and my skin is white. I’ve met middle eastern men who love how white I am (I was very uncomfortable with that) and also met western men who want me to be tanner (also very uncomfortable). I don’t understand what the attention on my skin color is about… does anyone understand this? It’s hard not letting this bother me


Matched on hinge with a guy in June. We still talk a lot but never met. We were both digital nomads so had a lot to talk relate about. I’m now dating someone.

I have posted about my boyfriend on Instagram and everything so I’m assuming he knows. But a part of me also doesn’t want to tell him I’m no longer single. 😬
