Am I ready for a house?

Heck to the no! Firstly, I can't afford it. I think if I looked hard enough, I probably could find some property that I could afford with a crazy payment plan that would have me living off instant ramen noodles for the rest of the life. But in reality I can't afford the house I want. I have a friend who is actively looking for a place along with a few other people that have just recently moved into their new houses. I can't help but be jealous because at the end of the day, the thought does cross my mind, especially when I keep hearing about it so much.

It also is one of my financial goals on my list of things to do along with retire & sit on my ass is own house. To make myself feel better I tell myself that all these people with said houses are doing it on a double income and while me and the boy are together we are not quite there so I would definitely be looking at places on my own. So while I entertain the idea from time to time, I push it out of my head till I save enough for a decent downpayment which seems like it will be never...
