I left home when I was 16 to be with my boyfriend's family. It didn't last. My parents didn't want me back so I ended up staying with various friends and family members - I moved 8 times in the space of a year. Finally settled with my twin sister and 2 years later found a place on my own.

Why is the question boxes repeated twice. Is the first box for autistics and the second box for Aspies? Or is it males and females? Or is it a defect in the setup program?

The forum was updated after the poll was made & it screwed up the poll. I noticed other polls had one option before the update now have two for each thing.

Age 18. Went off to college. Lived there. Made arrangements each summer to stay there as long as possible. Headed off to grad school ASAP after graduation. Never came back except to visit.

Yeah, rented all my life. It can be obnoxious but I got lucky with having truly excellent maintenance engineers, pretty much always, so everything worked or was quickly fixed/repaired.

I moved to a completely different part of the country to study at University when I was 18. I couldn't cope with University life at all, and dropped out of my course after just over a year to take up alcoholism instead, before slowly getting my sh*t together a bit. I never considered moving back to my parents', though, even when I was at my lowest ebb. I still live in the same University city now, thirty years later, though further out on the fringes where life is quieter and I have countryside close by.

I've never been one for close family ties, and my family was never very close-knit and is spread thinly across the country; my few good school friends all left our original native town, too; and I much prefer the people and lifestyle here in Yorkshire. My parents still live in the house where I was mostly raised, but I never think of it as "home", and it always felt odd to be asked if I'm "coming home" for Xmas etc. As a renter who's now moved house over 20 times since leaving my parents' home, I don't really think of myself as having a "home"; it's just a practical necessity that I need a quiet refuge from the world, but I never get attached to or nostalgic for anywhere that I've lived, aside from a vague sense of feeling that living in Yorkshire suits me much better than my native town.
