He's 30, he still lives with his mom and sister, and he gets an "allowance" of $240 a month. Is he a total loser/failure?

That's hard to say. How tall is he?

Yes, by society's standards. Society is terrible though so who gives a f***.

I thought TMAN used a cigarette to light his cigar. Lol, and I wonder if the OP is in fact "his friend."

I have a friend that is 31 and he lives at home with his mom and I would not consider him a loser. He helps his mom pay bills and he works 60 hours a week at a good paying job. He just hasn't found the right woman to marry and start a life together.

In all fairness I think it's a tad too outdated for society to hold onto the old "living with others being losers" cliche. It's not the same reality it once was, it takes quite a bit of doing to support yourself by yourself, even married these days. You either find something you're good at and stick to it, or you get lucky and catch a break. The American dream is dead.

You're the loser, what kind of friend makes a thread like this about his friend? Never trust someone that talks **** about their friends behind their backs.

He's not talking behind anyone's back. I'm right here.


Matty stole the comment I was going to make, so I'll settle for this.

You really think so? What's the main difference between now and then?

Without going into great detail, simplistically you can compare society from 60 years ago to now. Have a previous work ethic, graduate high school, buy a car, go to college, get your degree, score a comfortable position in whatever field you pretty much paid to give you a boost, buy a house, get married, have kids and a family pet. The American Dream through and through. Now it's not as easy. Most starting can't even get a background work ethic before finishing high school, on top of that others can't pay their way through college as it becomes too expensive with little improvement to show, which gives them little choice but to go with student loans. Before as my father told me college was far better when the government wasn't involved, prior colleges and partnered banks would compete for student applications, one benefit was the cost. Even if you get a degree in whatever field you're in, there's no guarantee you'll get a job, the ratio is far off than what it used to be. 

Since we were young we've had it embedded in our heads that we must go to college, for most it's set them up for failure and debt. It's not the reality or value it once was.

I'm probably going to live with my mom for all her life too. She just has me and I will never put her in a retirement home.

to me it would depend on the fact of: is he even trying to do anything to improve his situation like studying, working a part-time, etc. or he's just living off his parents?
