If he thinks being in a relationship means he never has to cook, do his laundry or clean up after himself (or needs you to at least remind him to do those things), you’re in pretty warped territory.Let him know you’re more than a maid he gets to bang.
The problem with this prolonged adolescence, however, is that some people forget that they eventually do have to take some responsibility for their lives and become a useful member of society.And since women tend to mature faster than men, it’s easy to understand the fairer sex’s frustrations about their dating options.When you ask a guy where he wants to go for dinner and he says something like, “I don’t care,” or “Wherever you want,” it’s usually true.But the difference between a man and a boy is that the man knows you hate that kind of shit and makes a suggestion anyway.And a grown-up man knows there’s no way to win an argument with a woman, anyway. You’re an independent, 21st-century woman — you don’t need a man to pay your bills.
But if he’s not bringing you chicken soup when you’re sick or giving you rides when your car’s in the shop, this is not a guy you can depend on. A man doesn’t care what anyone thinks about him as long as he believes in what he’s doing. No one wants to be a full-on conformist, but we are living in a society, here.
What follows is a list of ways you can tell a man isn’t ready for the real world.
But just because he may exhibit some, or even all, of these symptoms, it doesn’t mean he’s incapable of growing up. Try giving him a kick in the ass before you kick him to the curb. As long as it’s not interfering with his life, let the guy play.
The older you get, the harder things become to accomplish.
If he throws in the towel every time he meets a little bit of resistance, he’s still too wet behind the ears.
He thinks that unless everything is done on his terms, he’ll be perceived as weak-willed. Maybe it’s an old gender role, but men are expected to be reasonably handy.
