Men everywhere seem to believe that their possessions and how much money they have/earn is what attracts women and keeps them. Although this is true for a minority of women, the majority of women look for enjoyable personality traits and they're looking for someone to love and for someone to love them equally.
The men who believe that all women are materialistic often are embarrassed to admit that they live with their parents and/or think a woman will not want to date them because they still live with their parents. I feel that this shouldn't be the case so men, have no fear. I wanted to share with you that there are many women who do not care and to back this up, I'm sharing some reasons behind it.
1. Get to develop a relationship with parents
If you move out with someone straight away and live in their own house, you would rarely, if ever see their parents. Having a good relationship with his parents always helps so if my partner lives with their parents, it's easier and quicker for me to establish a relationship with them. It's also cute when they bring out the baby photos!
2. It's difficult to move out alone
As a 21 year old that also lives with her parents, I know how hard it is to get on the property ladder. It's even harder if you don't want to rent. Nowadays, it's not a shock for 30 year olds to buy their first house. I'm not going to expect the guy I date to have all his life goals completed and be totally stable with a house! It takes hard work, time and money.
3. Not materialistic
Anyone who knows me here know that I feel strongly about genuine equality (not that feminist stuff with double standards) and I have no interest in what a guy owns (unless he has a next gen console, then we'll be playing on that for some time!). Materialism isn't in my DNA. I've dated guys who live with their parents, are jobless and have no car. It's about love not their possessions.
4. Disposable income
If neither of us are paying high rent for a place, as well as all the bills, we both save money which can be used (equally) for days out together, creating memories, before taking the plunge and saving for a place.
5. Dating him for who he is
The guy will know you're dating him for who he is if you date him before he's moved out. Part of being in a relationship is being supportive and often encouraging them when they're way behind achieving their goals. When he eventually achieves them, he will look back and remember that she was there before he became successful.
There are downsides for a partner to still be living with their parents but personally, they don't bother me. You can still have a loving, passionate and intimate relationship with someone who lives with their parents.
Guys, don't be embarrassed or ashamed about living with your parents. A woman can and will still love you for who you are, which is what love is all about!
