He’s a 30-something guy, but he’s still living at home with his parents. There are a number of possibilities for this, but is a deal breaker for you?
His Mom Still Does His Laundry
He pulls up to a three-story Victorian home in his Porsche. You compliment him on his taste, and he shrugs as he puts the keys into his pocket. He must be an amazingly successful and responsible 30-something bachelor. You walk by the gardener, who is busy pruning the trees, and smile gleefully thinking about the relationship score you have just made. She smiles back, looks in the direction of your date, and comments, “Your father says that you are grounded from the car.” He turns around and groans, “But Mom!”
“In dating, just be open. Don’t set a relationship up for failure at the very beginning based on the past.” – Psychic Lacy ext. 5494
According to a recent Match.com survey, 71 percent of women would date a guy without a job, and a portion of those are probably watching Family Feud re-runs with his mom and pop right now. In 2009, nearly 15 percent of 30-something’s were still living at home. Researchers speculate the poor economy could have something to do with it. However, there are a number of other possibilities, such as because he wants to, Adam Sandler says it’s okay, his parents refuse to run away, and his six-year college plan left him with a brain predominantly made of white matter. Let’s look at these in detail.
He Wants To
Unlike 50 years ago, a man’s potential to achieve more than his old man is not as likely. Many men feel that they are never going to have it better than they do at home. If you’d ask these guys about their situation, they may tell you that they befell on hard times. However, in reality, they are saving a fortune, building a nest egg, and using mom’s disapproval as an excuse for why he’s unable to commit and fall in love (because no woman is ever good enough).
Adam Sandler Says it’s Okay
Some researchers speculate that the problem with these men is due to all the Adam Sandler type movies, which typically depict aging sons lounging around in their parent’s basement playing video games, getting laid and delaying the need to grow up. Television and movies have idealized the lifestyle of the lazy man, and some guys strive to be this cool.
Parents Who Refuse to Run Away
Once a guy gets rooted, it takes just about every effort a parent has to give him the motivation to move back out. This is especially true if his room is next to the theater room, and he has a swimming pool in the backyard. Where is the incentive to rent a tiny one-bedroom apartment, other than freedom, which is obviously something he doesn’t want? I personally know of one 30-something guy whose parents literally ran away from their own home, leaving him inside to fend for himself, and hopefully grow up.
Brain Predominantly of White Matter
When the brain is young, it’s predominantly made of gray matter. This allows a guy to be easily influenced by new experiences. Gray matter is responsible for a young man’s desire to seek adventure and want to embark beyond his parents’ control. Over time, the brain learns and adapts from its experiences, and the gray matter becomes white, which is much more set in its ways. What this means is that when a guy stays home to attend college and/or “find himself,” he is settling his brain into the idea of being content with hanging around mom and dad.
The Stay at Home Kid May Have the Upper Hand
If we consider a number of random studies, it can be concluded that the lazy man has an upper hand with women. Studies show that the more a woman thinks about a particular guy, the more likely she is to feel a connection to him. If a guy can present enough grief and mystery to boggle her mind, he might end up becoming her steady before she can pull a red flag. In addition, women are not only attracted to men who are successful, but also men who are relaxed. Stress hormones in the blood are a big turn off, according to studies, and a guy whose biggest problem is deciding on whether to play video games or take a three-hour nap, is probably not going to be too distressed.
“Think of dating like a major job interview and you are the employer. You want to make sure you are hiring the right person to take good care of your heart.” – Psychic Deejay ext. 5435
The 1950s dating handbook claimed that all grown men must have at least three things to successfully date women, including a job, car, and his own place. The 2012 handbook mentions something about a cell phone and a clean pair of underwear, but everything else is negotiable. What would you do if your guy was still living with mom?
