If they lived in a huge house-yes
Small 2 bedroom apartment-no


If he was caring for an elderly or sick mother-yes
If he was doing it to save money-no.

I have mixed emotions about this topic. It's hard for some people out there who are trying to make it I know famalies who have pulled together & moved into one big house because its just not easy out there anymore.
I still would like to know why it's ok for women to live with thier mom & not men though. Whats the difference?

How is that different than, say, if he has a roommate? We could all agree that having a roommate when you are young, single and saving money is understandable.

The best man I ever dated was living with his mother when I met him. He had gone through a divorce, and was just there temporarily until he got himself squared away, which he did.

I would say it would depend on the circumstances. Younger people in there early 20's, i wouldnt find that odd at all if they lived at home. A man in my exe's situation, I wouldnt find odd as long as it was temporary. If a guy was 40 yrs old and live with mom and had NEVER lived away from home, I would find that weird, and wouldnt be interested.

The only thing is that right now he lives with his mom. He moved in with his mom to save some money and he is working towards moving out.

So I told her all of this, and she said it was o.k. for him to call her, and he called her the day before yesterday. When I talked to her about him today, I asked her was she going to call him back, and she said she was, but I could tell in her voice that she really didn't want to. To make a long story short, I asked her why she didn't want to call him, and she said that it's cause he lives with his mom...and basically he is beneath her.

Wow man...she's your "good friend" when you're setting her up......but she's a "B#$%h if she's not interested?

A guy living with his mother is the equivalent of a single girl trying to date with a kid. Think its about equal. Some people will overlook it and some wont.

I wouldn't have a problem with this scenario at all. I lived with my parents for a little while after college and I lived with them after I got a divorce. Both times it was temporary and no guys I dated had any problem with it. I dated a guy for about 5 months who lived with his parents. He was gainfully employed and working to save up money. There's a big difference between someone who works and is living at home to save money or get back on their feet and some 45 year old guy who lives in his mom's basement and plays video games all day.

No, I wouldn't. I happen to think guys should move out much sooner than women. By 20-21 years old they should be living on their own. A lot of the men on here are selling some good stories, about how they make 6 figures yet still live at home. yeah sure ::rolls eyes:: I don't know any adult who has that much money who wouldn't want to live on their own and enjoy their freedom. Nobody wants to date a momma's boy
