    I moved out the day I finished school, went to australia for a year then came back and went to uni for 6 years.. It just kinda flowed there was no real 'Move' as I still had my room back home although this turned into an office more and more over the years.. Used to pop home for a Sunday dinner once a month or so... After uni I couldnt afford the council tax on my flat and had to move back home again for 18 months.. that was harder than moving out!!

    Sorry to hear you are feeling down.
    As other people said its completely normal. I felt the same when I left home but to be honest after a short while of being the boss of your house you won't want to go back. In fact enjoy it because if you move a girlfriend in you won't ever be the boss again.

    Common to feel down after moving house at any stage in life. Something hard-wired into the circuitry I think. You'll feel better soon.

    Getting used to the quietness is the hardest thing. I'm lucky in that I've never lived alone - when I moved out it was to uni, then after uni moved back in to my parents (which as stated, is worse than when you move out) and then in with my gf. Although it was still very strange at first and did choke me up, having people around a lot made it easy. Being the last one left in the house at the end of term though? Just not nice.

    So, to reiterate - get people over!

    Spot on. Life at that age was immense. Wish I was that age again! I got my first bachelor pad when I was 20ish. Roll on the parties!

    Moving house is stressful - doubly so if it's your first own place, considering all the ironing/bills/budgeting/cleaning/assorted cr@p that goes with it.

    Take the chance to relax and do a few things that you could never do while at your parents house, get a few beers in and lounge infront of the telly/games console, order pizza and don't tidy the box away for a day(week?) or two, leave the toilet seat up, squeeze the toothpaste from the middle!

    (Okay started to go off the rails a little there but you get the idea!)

    Remeber it's YOUR place now and as such you make the rules - as other people have posted invite a few mates over and have a party, not only will that de-stress you but you'll also start to think of the place as more of a home.

    I moved out when i was 17, been away from parents now for two years.

    Having friends round is the only thing thats kept me sane. Just Never ever ever ever watch another scary movie ever again.

    Things that shouldnt happen in a house start to happen! E.g

    Ice builds up at the top of freezer then drops down (Sounding like a draw has just slammed closed)
    The Sign on the outside of the house starts Flapping in the wind (Sounding like Knocking on the walls)
    The handle on the door sticks down, so as your in bed it slowly starts to creek back into its normal possition (Like someone is opening it)

    ahhh im not sleeping tonight....

    Ah well, here we are nearly 3 months after I first moved in. And guess what...... nothing has changed. I want to sell up shop and move to the same village as my family and friends. So, now I've got to weigh up what it's going to cost me to move. Solicitors, estate agents, mortgage penalties. I really want to get the estate agents out to value the house, but I'm so worried they'll tell me it's not worth as much as I paid for it.
