I'm a 30 year-old, female real estate agent who works in a affluent area, selling condo's out of a building that's just converted. I myself live in a middle-class area with my father. I meet alot of well-to-do men, because I'm attractive. However once I tell them I still live at home, they get turned off, or treat me in a condensing way. I do pay my father rent, and own my own vehicle, I'm also practically debt free. I do plan on moving out, once I have enough savings & downpayment. If I meet someone in the meanwhile, should I lie? Or avoid the subject?

NO, NO and NO... Don't lie... However if it does not come up, then don't bring it up. Besides there is nothing wrong with you living at home and trying to save enough money to make a downpayment on a place of your own. In today's economy it is increasingly harder to get out on your own. More and more people are staying with their folks or getting room mates. Just so they can make ends meet. if these men you are meeting start condesending or get turned off by your living at home, blow them off. Besides who are they to sit in judgement? Do your thing and keep going the way you are. If you feel that your living situation is your problem, then fix it... If it's their problem, let them deal with it...
