Dating tips Signs you are dating a man-child

To his appearance, to your feelings, to other people's feelings, to pretty much everything other than his own hunger and need for fun.

The man-child: a growing breed of male specimen with an acute form of Peter Pan syndrome that is just flat-out sad.

Yes, the adult world is a daunting place filled with responsibilities and somewhat ironic lack of freedom, but that does not mean we can prevent ourselves from growing up.

Unfortunately, there are plenty of guys out there who are willing to try, and they can pose serious drawbacks to 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.

The way they preserved their youth and lived a life free of responsibility and obligation may have seemed appealing at first, until you realized you could not carry out an adult conversation with them.

  • He's oblivious

To his appearance, to your feelings, to other people's feelings, to pretty much everything other than his own hunger and need for fun.

  • He's filthy by choice

He jumps in puddles, makes a mess in the kitchen and likes playing with soil in the back garden.

  • He has sleepovers

Without asking you first and you find strangers randomly dotted around your house.

  • He's impolite

He won't pipe down if you are on the phone or have your friends and family over. He has one noise level and that's it.

  • He's tacky

Everything looks like genitals to him because he has a dirty mind.

  • He's bad with money

He'll buy things you don't need or want and forgets the emergency stuff you asked him to get.

  • He can't cook

 And tries to palm off breakfast as dinner.

  • He's prone to injury

 He's careless with anything sharp or heavy and is always walking wounded. You have had to take him to the emergency room several times.

  • He tries to make you laugh when you're sad

 With slapstick moves in fancy places.
