Dating men with small children
Unfortunately, there are plenty of guys out there who are willing to try, and they can pose serious drawbacks to us grown-ass women embracing our new-found adulthood by moving forward.
For those of us who prefer men, we've most likely dated a man-child at one point in time.
If he's between jobs, and actively on the hunt for something suitable, that's one thing.
But if he's too busy with beating the latest version of Grand Theft Auto, that's another story entirely.
Often, they are found to be eating food teetering on expiration, or things that have colors you cannot find in nature.
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.
But, if we ladies are accepting the challenge, in all of our fierce, badassness, there is no reason to deal with a guy who wants to stay a kid.
There will be a grown-ass man within this world to go with our grown-ass womanness, and guess what? Want more of Bustle's Sex and Relationships coverage?
