That’s when you know that the person you’re dating belongs to that growing species of males commonly known as the So who qualifies as a man-child?
Well, since this is more or less a term introduced by pop culture, we don’t have any official definitions for you, but basically, a man-child is a grown man who’s still a kid inside.
So when you think you've finally found the one, whether it's your boyfriend or husband, you're psyched.
Until you start noticing signs your SO is a man-child.
You think that devil-may-care attitude will complement your own high strung personality perfectly well.You could be all worried and anxious, and he’ll just sit tapping away at his phone, feet up on the coffee table, not hearing a syllable of what you say.A man-child can also be identified by his inability to focus on one thing at a time, a tendency that only intensifies when it’s about a topic that doesn’t concern his latest video game, favorite superhero or what’s for dinner. He is clueless about his future We aren’t talking about the future of your relationship; that’s a point many men are clueless about.You legitimize his behavior and override your own feelings that could alert you to long-term, problematic behavior. Modify His Behavior In Small Steps If you're up for the challenge, you can try setting up the house so that he develops more helpful habits.For example, instead of asking him to put in a load of laundry and waiting for it to never happen, you can put the hamper at the top of the stairs and ask him simply to carry it down the stairs next time he is going that way.
