He’s attractive, and he has that carefree demeanor that you thought was only possible in romantic comedies.
I’m too old to be the one teaching a guy how to grocery shop for himself, keep up with all his bills, clean the bathroom on a regular basis, and remember to stock up on toilet paper.
I’d end up doing all the stuff his mom used to do, and he’d never learn how to be on his own.
Admittedly, my first thought upon hearing a 30-year-old lives with his parents is that he can’t afford to live anywhere else. Most people start thinking about getting their own place by their early 20s, give or take a couple years. It could be for any number of reasons, most of which come back to the fact that he doesn’t want to be an adult. Most parents expect their kids to move out on their own at some point, but if his parents have never mentioned it, don’t ask him to pay rent, and genuinely seem like they want him to stay, why would he ever leave?
I don’t want to worry his parents might hear us having sex.
You need to look at some things you decide whether his living at home is OK with you.Lots of people do it because they want to save a little money before being on their own.Everyone’s circumstances are different and I’m totally not judging.All signs are a go, but last night he dropped the biggest bomb: he still lives with his parents!He says that he's saving money to buy a house, but he's in his 30s and has a good job, so that doesn't make sense to me. Should I just give up on him, assuming he's too immature, or should I see how this all pans out?
