    Hi everyone, thanks for taking your time to read this. I am a 19 year old male who still lives with his parents. However.. they are about to kick me out of the house.

    I don't have an income or a saving. All i have is a iphone 6 that i can sell. I don't have a pc or laptop.

    I've been dropping out from school since i was 13 years old. I did finish high school after changing schools 4 times.

    I have no job experience other than a paper route and a business that is on my name.

    The worst part is that i also don't have any skills other than picking up girls, but not good enough to be a pickup guru if you will.

    My parents are kicking me out on friday. And i have nowhere to go. There is a small change my grandad would take my in home for a few days if i lied about the situation. He lives far away where i am from so i couldn't start looking for a job over there in that short term.

    I have no car nor driverlicense and i have no idea how i can get out of this mess.

    What would you do in my situation? I am not asking for hand outs of any kind, i am just trying to see some positive reinforcment. And i hope i can get the ball rolling and get my life on track.

    Truly yours,

    Greengo

    Sounds like a shitty situation. Sounds like the priority is to get a roof over your head and some money to survive. Your options depend on where you live.
    Look up what's available in your area and go from there.

    Get a bucket, some cloths and start cleaning windows / windscreens.

    Get out and do manual yard work, cash in hand, work as a labourer.
    You're young, fit and healthy.

    bar work, restaurant work, grab what you can.

    You are young. Fuck money. Go travel the world with no money. Be creative. Create things and sell them to people on the streets.
    Make an Instagram account and share your adventure and all the great people you meet on the way. Make this you career. Go east, find a spiritual teacher & learn something most people in our culture will never understand. Although you don't know it yet, you are in a fortunate situation and you will meet great people. What's the worst thing that can happen to you? Inevitable. Enjoy life, you don't need money, espacially if you're young and have noone to feed. Love.

    I don't know your situation, but parents that are kicking out their 19 year old child knowing that he has nowhere to go, they sound like heartless parents to me. Maybe it is the difference in culture, family values, but I know that in my country no parent would do that, no matter how a slacker their child may be.

    You could sell your body, although I tried that once and had to give them a refund

    Did you try talking with your parents about the situation? Tell 'em that you wanna change yourself and maybe you should change yourself afterwards then, lol. As for Jobs -> Take what you can get, every Job you get shows your parents that you are willing to work, and as soon as they will realize that they won't kick you out.

    First don't panic. See it as an opportunity for you. Think you have all alone - but it makes you free as well - no responsibilities. And I don't think it's too hard too survive alone. There are lots of jobs you can hook up to. Just think what are you best at? No one has no skills...

    I have a friend that makes lots of money from jobs nobody wants to do. He clean offices, all you need is cleaning tools & materials - take it from your parents house and go for it.

    Pick up a girl. Make her your girlfriend. Live at her place. Steal money from her purse. Profit.

    You can't fix the problem, unless you will finally change yourself.

    Being 19 years old, having no skills (except picking up girls, which describes a lot about you), no money (but an iPhone 6 (?), no experiences, no school degree and so on. What did you do the last few years? It sounds like you are absolute worthless (sorry to say that - but in these days you need skills to survive) and just a trouble maker...and then someone above wrote the parents are "heartless" - come on - everyone has to take responsibility for themselves. That you are in this situation is your own fault.

    What you can do is simple:
    Sell your iPhone, buy drugs, and forget all this shit.
    or
    Keep your iPhone, talk with your parents and start do something meaningful (maybe a job? or IM?)

    And to the guys who will probably bash me for writing this: Of course you can tell him what to do. You can also send him $3.99 on Paypal or anything, but this won't fix anything. You really think this guy will do anything you say, when he can't even get along with his parents, having no skills and so on? Nope.

    The most important information that will help you get out of this situation (and is missing from your post) is:

    What did you do (didn't do) that put you in this situation?

    Everything costs money, but you should't forget that you interact with humans and not robots. If you ask, you'll be surprised by how kind people can be and how much free stuff you get. Especially in the east. Always offer something in exchange. Be creative. There are thousands of people living lifes off the beaten path. Some temporary (backpackers) and some forever. Google (Youtube) are your friends. Don't be a slave of this stupid society and regret wasting your life. Don't be afraid, you've already won at life the moment you were born. Find that which only reveals to those who seek.

    My father is a tiran, a narcist at it's worst. Everything has to go according to what he has in his mind. If you don't exactly say as he does he starts yelling and slapping/punching. Everything i do is bad trough his eyes. I can't even go to the shower without getting screamed at 99% of the time. Believe me. That gets old really fast.

    Hey OP your situation isn't good but before we jump into extra talks, can you tell us reasons why your parents do want to kick you out of ther house if you weren't such a bad guy... Too be real honest with you, the real solution to your problem you already know it but you just come on here to look for another option to bail yourself out of this, Go to your parents, apologize for whatever you must have done that you not teling us and secure a roof over your head before thinking about job hunting or skills... Parents can't be that heartless.Then on the skill acquistion & money making bit, You in BHW hommie... EXPLORE! at least you have an iPhone 6 & internet you ain't handicapped...

    Peace! :)

    I've seen these stories posted here so often I'm starting to believe people who tell them just want attention. We have no way of confirming if this is true or not. It wouldn't be the first time someone lied about this on this forum.

    No disrespect to you OP, but maybe you should be trying to figure out how to survive, instead of asking for advice on an IM forum. You've got less than 24 hours left. Stop wasting time.
