In a lot of ways, relationships have made progress over the last couple of decades. I think it’s a good thing that people don’t feel like they must be married by their mid-twenties and finished having children by their early thirties. I think it’s good that we have realized most people don’t even know who they are until mid-twenties. In fact, research has found that the brain and our decision-making skills specifically develop until we are about 25 years old. So thank goodness we don’t feel the pressure we used to to make permanent decisions by our early twenties like choosing a life partner or procreating. That being said, sometimes I think the freedom to take things slowly is also the cause of the uprise of the man-child. Some men are taking too much advantage of the fact that nobody expects them to grow up early, so they are never growing up at all. While boyishness can be cute, it walks a fine line with the man child. And you want nothing to do with him. Here are signs of a man child to look out for.
He begs and whines for sex
When you’re not in the mood to do it, the man child throws a tantrum. He complains. He’s in a bad mood the whole night, cranky and cold for not getting what he wants. He punishes you for not having sex, by being moody.
