Dating men with small children
Being the breadwinner in your relationship is awesome (you go girl!), but having to cater to a man who doesn't want to get off of the couch is not OK. The man-child is aware that his space is filthy but, he doesn't really care to change it.Whether it's a 2 liter bottle of Mountain Dew that sits beside his bed in case he gets thirsty at night, or that box of pizza he just threw in the fridge who knows when, he tends to stay away from fruit and vegetables.Chances are he doesn't use utensils either, and most of the things he eats off of do not fully count as dishware.He's OK living in the dirt, and funky smell as long as he can find a clean shirt for the next day.And chances are, if you finally force him to clean, he probably won't know how to work a vacuum, or use a dishwasher.Basically, he will either run away from the problem (classic avoiding responsibility again) or act like a small child throwing a temper tantrum and suddenly it's clear where the name came from.
This is probably one of the worst characteristics on the list, because this lack of motivation most likely means this guy won't make for a suitable, long-term partner.
If he even cleans his plastic spork, and Styrofoam bowls is another question entirely. Man-children do not have the word responsibility in their vocabulary, so chances are when they are met with the foreign term, they deny its existence entirely.
Whether you are asking them to rightfully take the blame for something they have done wrong, or telling them that, yes, their landlord will notice if they decide not to pay rent this month, this guy just isn't willing in any capacity to confront all the things that come with getting older.
Man-children often do not know what makes for a healthy, balanced meal.
Often, they are found to be eating food teetering on expiration, or things that have colors you cannot find in nature.
