Dating childish men

Since our generations don’t stress the need for growing up and becoming a ‘man,’ some people just never seem to catch up to their actual age anymore, whereas in past generations, you needed to get your act together by the age of 16 and grow up.

For the sake of women everywhere, you should take action when you know you’re dating a manchild.

Don’t let him invade your life and continue with his childish antics. A guy who throws dirty dishes into the sink without even rinsing them and then lets them fester there for days until you finally have had enough, is nothing more than your typical manchild. If your boyfriend is harping at you to cook, clean, do the laundry, and all of the stuff that the ‘girl is supposed to do’ he hasn’t matured yet at all. You know, like how a toddler would throw everything they’re holding and lay on the ground screaming until you give them what they want.

If your boyfriend shoves all that aside for you to take care of, he clearly is a manchild who can’t even handle adult aspects of life. No matter what the situation or what degree of severity it is, he just doesn’t care if it doesn’t affect him.

Manchildren aren’t empathetic people and therefore, don’t really care if hundreds of people die in mass shootings or explosions every year. Does your boyfriend consistently have to be looking for a job because he’ll be fired or quit one after only a few months?

So he’ll just slump down for a while following constructive criticism. If arguing with your boyfriend is completely pointless because there’s just no way he’ll ever see your side because he’s always right, you may be dating a manchild.

He may talk tough, he may promise you great things, but if he never–or hardly–follows through with his intentions, then he’s a manchild. Does he even know what he wants to have accomplished in the next 5 years?

If you come last when it comes to his friends and hobbies, you’re dating a manchild who obviously is too immature to handle the realities of a relationship. If not, then he’s too immature to realize that these are important adult matters that need to be taken care of.

I don’t know if it’s because of my motherly qualities or if I just attract needy and childish men, but I seem to be stuck with them a lot. I’m not some stuck up lady that thinks any guy who knows how to have fun is automatically considered a manchild.

But if you’re taking ‘fun’ to such a level that only an 8 year old would enjoy, then I definitely have a problem. Just as Urban Dictionary defines the term manchild, it is a man who is so immature that they are considered a child.
