Living with one’s parents, as an adult, has such a stigma. Especially for men. It’s not fair, but we all know that it’s true. Aren’t you a little bumped when you meet a grown man who tells you that he lives at home? Just or unjust, we all expect men to at the very least be able to provide for themselves, if not also for others. So when you learn that a guy isn’t paying for the roof over his head, it’s hard to see him as, well, a man. But if you meet a guy with whom you really hit it off, the fact that he lives with his parents doesn’t have to mean this interaction is over. There are a lot of nuances to that situation. Walking away could be a mistake. So, should you date a man who is living at home with his parents? Here are things to consider.

Is he just caring for them?

Is he perhaps just living at home to take care of his parents? Maybe they’re getting older, and need more help around the house. They’re not quite at a point of moving into a retirement community, and he wants them to get to stay in their home as long as possible. And perhaps this is all just temporary as one is very ill, but will hopefully recover.
