Unemployed
I recently finished studying last year. I still have not found a job. This is really getting to me. I'm starting to feel like i'll be staying with my folks forever. I desperately want to move out because my dad treats me like i'm 12 instead of the 22yr old that i am. I am not allowed to go out in the evenings, i can't spend nights or weekends away with friends. I really hate him. He acts all good but i know that he has been cheating on my mom for years now. He's not the kind of man that you can talk to.

I dare say it FEELS like that, but of course you won't be staying with your folks forever. There is the risk you recognize, that because this is the home in which you were young, your folks may tend to still treat you as if you were much younger, and that is indeed very frustrating. But you need to discuss this with them --- restructions like not allowing you to go out in the evenings, may be meant well in these dangerous times, but need to be balanced with recognition that you are an adult and can make yoyur own decisions on such things.
