I recently met with a potential client a couple weeks ago who is finding it difficult to find a mate because of his living circumstances. He's a great guy who owns his own business and wants more than anything to find his soul mate and start a family. However, due to his ailing father, he's had to move back in with his parents to help his mother take care of him. As a result, he claims his dating life has suffered tremendously as most women won't even consider going out with a guy who doesn't own his own place.
It's easy to say that these women are shallow, but putting myself in the situation, I'd have to say I probably wouldn't date someone seriously who lived at home with their parent's either. At my age and with two small children, it'd be nice to have another place as a retreat for the two of us, and this would be next to impossible with someone who shared a home with family members. I don't think it's a character flaw on anyone who is in this circumstance, per se, but personally for me and my accommodations, it just most likely wouldn't work.
