I was born in Martinsburg, WV. When I was about two I moved to Clarksville, MD. At age five or so I moved to Columbia, MD. I presently live in Fairfax County, in northern Virginia, having moved here at the age of 17 in 1998.

Let's see now. 7 cities / towns and 15 different houses / apartments. Most active time period of moving. 1 city, 5 moves (plus a 2 month period with no formal abode), 6 years.

Felicia, 35

My closest guess would be 10.

Six, that I can remember.

Ryan, 28
Riedlingen  GERMANY

I've moved 8 times now, 5 of which were within the last 5 years.

Angela, 16
Bella Vista

Once, and I was so young I don't remember it. And I only moved across town anyways.

Dianne, 16
Ontario   CANADA

Not counting in and out of college dorms, ten. Three of them in the last three years.

Jane, 60
West Linn
, OR   USA

Moved to a new house or just moved stuff? Once when I was 4. Then twice more, to two different college dorms. Then again to an apartment at the second college. Then home after college. Then another apartment when I got a job. Finally the house I am in now with my hubby. Seven times and not counting college only four.

Tracy, 24
Ocean City

Not including temporary periods of homelessness between residencies the answer is eleven.

Alias Irrelevante

Depends how you're counting. I moved completely once, when I was a baby. Since then I've moved the stuff that I need/want from my parents' house to a dorm room, an apartment, and another apartment. So either one or four.

Karen, 21

I was born in Spokane, Washington, moved to Cheyenne Wyoming, then to NJ by the time I was 5. I stayed at my parent's house until I was 18. Then I moved 3 or 4 times locally in NJ. Moved back to my parent's to go to college. THen got married and moved, we then bought a house and here I am since 1983.

Janet, 44
E. Brunswick

I've moved 7 times. Up until I married, I'd lived in the same house all my life. So all these moves are since I'm married. I love where I am now and have no intentions of moving again.

Laura, 36
, MA   USA

Twice as a child. Three times between college and my first marriage. Fourteen times in a twelve year marriage. Yes, his itchy foot was one of the reason for divorce. Three times as a divorcee. Once in my second marriage.

Jill, 60

I move up to live with my Grams every single summer, but I guess I really shouldn't count that. With my mom, I've moved either four or five times into new residences.

Jaden, 21
Brampton, Ontario  CANADA

I can't answer that question...or else I would no longer be from Parts unknown...I would be from parts known...and I don't want my Parts to be known...

age unknown, parts unknown

My life sorta divides into three sections:

1. As a child, my family moved twice (unless you count the 3 months we lived in a temp place with only part of our belongings because our house was not finished - then it would be 3 times).
2. If you count dorm life - well there were two falls when I moved into the dorms and two springs when I moved back out.
3. Then there is my life since then. My husband and I have moved 10 times. YUCK!!! We hope to move soon to a place that accomodates all our needs and stay there for a long time - we will see.

So my total moves would be: 17?


A lot--twice during the first time I lived in Albuquerque...then we moved to Las Vegas for a year or so... then when we came back we moved four times... then we came to Oklahoma, where we've moved twice... so that's about abut 2 and 1/2 years in each location... my dad gets tired of houses, so sometimes we'll move two or three blocks down... right now he's thinking about picking us up and moving us again, to a house across town.

Johanna, 18

When I was about 2 years old, my family moved from the apartment we lived in because I fell out of a second-story window there and then when I was ten, me, my mother and 2 brothers moved into her friends house when my parents got divorced, but then we moved back into the house I live in now.

Jennifer, 19

If you don't count college, 2 going on three.

Talia, 24
, CT   USA

Twice. I moved homes locally when I was five, and then I moved to Connecticut for college. I still spend breaks at home in California, though.

Eric, 19
Beverly Hills

When I was one, I moved into a mobile home on the property I live on now. My family built a large house about thirty feet away and we moved into that  hen I was in first grade. When I was in fifth grade, I moved upstairs and just weeks ago I moved back downstairs. So if all those room swithces count, four times.

A-Dog, 18

I moved loads of times before I was 2, but I dont count them, as I dont rememeber them. Since then I have moved at age 6 to where I live now, age 12 to america, age 13 back, age 18 to university, age 19 back, age 19 off to work in a hotel, age 19 back again .. so thats ...7 ... I think ... and I'm hopefuly moving again in the next six moths, as me and my boyfriend are living with my parents, and we want to escape!

Alice, 21

quite a bit. . maybe 12 or 15 times. .

mothmc, 37

Lots more than I wanted. From my mom's to my dad's, from dad's to an apartment, from there to another apartment, from there to a house. Now it looks like I'm moving again, probably at least twice within the next year.
