Anonymous asked this question on 7/13/2000:
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?

I would avoid the topic entirely until you actually get to know the man good enough for him to see that you are a sensitive, responsible woman. All people are bound by their nature to jump to conclusions when given information, so only give that information that will cause the least amount of jumping to conclusions. Once you know the man well, you can explain your living situation and your reasons for choosing to live at home, then there should be no problem.
