Title sums it up. I live at home with my parents currently due to my financial situation. I love my family and their support, but it sucks. I have my masters degree, but my field is criminal justice and the police hiring process is brutally long. I’ve been living at home for two years (!!!!) applying to every single department I can. I substitute teach as my job because these departments require 5-6 visits each and they give me a weeks notice…imagine trying to ask for all those days off while working a full time job. I am finally going to the academy in Ocotober (8 months away). I more or less have been on a dating freeze while at home. I feel ashamed of it, and I feel like any girl worth her salt would just bail the moment she found out I lived at home. I actually get approached by women when I’m out, but I often sulk away mid-conversation because I’m so embarassed about my living situation. Am I making this out to be a bigger deal than it really is?

Honestly that wouldn’t be off putting for me. You’re getting yourself established and it’s taking longer because of the field of work you’ve chosen, so from where I stand that is reasonable.
It does however make you feel almost like a young teenager dating again. If a girl has a problem with it that’s her problem and who knows you may ask a girl on a date who has her own place. As long as this isn’t a permanent living situation it shouldn’t be an issue.

it’s usually a deal breaker for women more than men

It dosen’t help but I doubt its a deal breaker.

Depends if its a long distance relationship or not I suppose living by yourself would be more impressive and more grown up than still living with your parents but these days, (depending on age) most people understand that supporting yourself is a hard thing to be doing.
