Mama's Boy Syndrome: Men living at home with their mothers


You've met the man of your dreams! He's got a job, is handsome, spiritual, dresses nicely, has great conversation, and is really attentive towards you. But then he drops the bomb - he still lives with his mom!

Now, it's not every day that you find a quality man...so should you continue to date him, or not?

Does the fact that he lives with his mom cancel all of his good qualities?

Does it make a difference if 'he lives with his mom' vs. 'his mom living with him'? Or is it the same?

Would you ever date a man that still lives at home? If so, under what circumstances?

DEAR STAN , CHILD SUPPORT GOES TO THE SUPPORORT OF THE CHILD, REGAURDLESS OF WHAT YOU WERE TOLD, IT GOES TO HEALTH CARE, CLOTHES, THE RENT WHERE THE CHILD STAYS, ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING NEEDED TO SUPPORT THE CHILD(REN), NOT THE MOTHERS PARTY FUND, OR ANY OF THAT FOOLISHNESS, JUST THINK HOW YOU WOULD CARE FOR THE CHILD IF THEY WERE IN YOUR COUSTODY, YOU'D HAVE A PLACE TO STAY, LIGHTS ON,TV, WATER ON,PHONE ON , HEALTH CARE, TRANSPORTATION IF ANY, AND OH YEAH, DAY CARE IF YOU WERE WORKING AND THE CHILD WAS AN INFANT ( AND THAT'S SOMETIMES $150.00- AND UP, PER WEEK UNTILL THEY ARE ALITTLE OLDER, THEN IT GOES DOWN TO ABOUT $85.00 A WEEK) FOOD AND PAMPERS,FORMULA, ECT ITS A SHAME THAT SOME DADS LET IT GROW TO SUCH AN AMOUNT THAT IT KILLS THEM TO PAY IT. NOW THE JUDGE THAT TOLD YOU THAT"THE PAYMENTS ARE ENOUGH, YOU DIDN'T HAVE TO SEE THEM BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT CHILDSUPPORT IS FOR " IS A CROCK, ALL CHILDREN NEEDS AND MISS THIER FATHER WHEN HE'S NOT ARROUND SO DON 'T LISTEN TO THAT UNLESS THE MOM HAS A ISSUE WITH IT, THE CHILD SUPPORT WAS NOT OUT OF "SPITE FOR YOU, IT IS NEEDED FOR THAT CHILD. JUST MY 2 CENTS PEACE:-)

Well Im 20 and I was dating a guy that was 41. When we first me I was 19 and he was 40 and i really didnt see age as an issue because of all my prior boyfriends playing around on me. Well he was nice and very easy to talk to. I didnt know that he lived with his mother to I went over his house one night and realized that his mother, his sister, and his brother still lived there. He said that he used to have his own place but when his dad passed he promised his dad that he wouldnt leave his mother and sister alone which was understandable being that the sister has Down Syndrome. But it got to the point where we could even sleep in the same room together when I spent the night at his house. But i still loved him and i was willing to understand the circumstances of his situtation so was i just being naive or what?

I have dated a few guys who still lived at home. The thing is that neither was my "dream guy". They weren't independent enough for me. One wanted to get married. I couldn't do it. This man was in his 30's. Never lived on his own. Has been working since he was a teen and really had nothing to show for it. He didn't give his parent anything for living there. So, I declined because I am a single parent who has worked diligently to finish school and obtain my nursing license. I'm buying my own home. I have my own transportation, etc. I don't want someone who is not on my level or better. I don't want a man who thinks it's ok to go from his mother's house to my house. I need to see that he is responsible. Maybe it's the area that I'm in, but, I haven't found anyone who is independently living on their own and doing their own thing.

OOOKKKAAAYYY Coolpeeps you live at home with mummy. When a woman turns her love away from you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you get another woman. NOT MOMMY yeah she can so call hook you up. How bout hookin yourself up.........I have yet to met a man that was living at home with his mom actually lived there to help her. They lie about why they are there and it is obvious what the truth is.
