4 Reasons Why Girls Should Want a Guy Who Still Lives With Parents

4 Reasons Why Girls Should Want a Guy Who Still Lives With Parents

The negative stigma attached to men who still live at home is so ridiculously abundant, you would not want to if you were 18, much less between 25 and 35. But trust me, ladies, the pros of dating a guy who still lives at home, far outweigh the cons (provided he has a decent income, good looks, and personality.) And here are the top three reasons.

#1) He will know you want him for HIM, and not what he's earning or living in.

Guys who have good jobs and houses of their own might gets lots of attention from women, but 99% of the time,...they're the parasitic, loveless kind, who may as well work in brothels. He will know that if he became successful and then lost everything for any reason, you'll still love him. Period.

#2) He'll have far more disposable income and facilities.

He can pamper you a lot more. What else can I say?

#3) You'll have very little competition--if ANY--from other women.

A guy who lives at home isn't exactly a chick magnet. But a "chick" is for rich guys, a real woman is for a real man.

#4) He'll be much more loyal.

You think a wealthy guy with a mansion is going to stick by you if he knows he can have any whore he wants whenever he wants? Guys who still live at home know their limitations. So he'll worship you for giving him the opportunity.

    1. So all women that date a successful man are parasitic loveless brothel workers. Right... you've already told your key demographic that they're disgusting people who only like men for their money so well done trying to find a woman now. Let me say this, you catch more flies with honey than you do vinegar.

    2. He's a sponge who's living off his parents and not paying and rent or food bills or anything to help the people who are taking care of his housing situation? Sure sounds like a catch to me. If he's so rich why not move out?

    3. Don't tell real women what real women want and don't want. A sponge isn't attractive - a confident professional man is. The man I'm dating is one of those, who has his own home but his elderly aunt happens to live with him so he can take care for her in her old age - that's infinitely more attractive than sleeping with a man in his teenage bedroom. Real women, like what they like for their own reasons. Women want a mans man, you're not selling yourself as one right now.

    4. Prove it? Living at home with mum and dad doesn't mean you're more or less likely to cheat. I've dated lads like that who were cheaters and I've dated 'rich' guys who were very attentive, kind, caring, non cheating men. So that debunks that theory.

    It's fine that you live at home, fair enough I'm not here to rag on anyone for living at home but don't claim all women are prostitutes for wanting to date men of a higher social standing with money, don't call women who like you 'real women', insinuating that the other women in the world aren't women. Come back with some legit reasons and I'd take this seriously.

    This is so sad, lol. You're trying to justify living at home in your mid twenties with "positives" that are arguable. This might come as a shocker to you but women like men who are self-sufficient and ambitious. Living at home is neither of those things. Just for fun, let me pick apart your "points".

    1) He will know you want him for HIM, and not what he's earning or living in.
    - This is more of a positive for the man, wouldn't you say? I mean, why does a woman have to justify to the man that she wants him for him?

    2) He'll have far more disposable income and facilities.
    - He MIGHT have more disposable income assuming he's working and, for some inexplicable reason, not helping his parents financially. Facilities? Like his parent's facilities? I don't follow.

    3) You'll have very little competition--if ANY--from other women.
    - Yeah, there's a reason for this - very few women want them at all. However, a confident women shouldn't be worried about this to begin with.

    4) He'll be much more loyal.
    - You have no evidence for this. Men with jobs and their own houses are just as likely to be loyal.

    Seriously, your whole argument boils down to "He'll appreciate it more because no other girls are giving him a chance!" which isn't really an incentive for the girl.

      Right, there's economic and personal circumstances that can effect a person's ability to get a good job and a place of their own, especially if that person's under 30. Refusing to date somebody for these reasons isn't that much better than guys refusing to date somebody because her boobs aren't big enough or something.

  • OpenClose
    Hey now! I'm a 25-year-old guy who still lives with his dad and...

    ... yeah, pretty much true.

    1. It's kinda nice, too. I am very picky about being with girls who aren't expecting me to play some sort of role. I have little to no tolerance for any girl who throws me some arbitrary idea of what a man "should" be. Yeah, change your gender then come back to me on that one. Most of my dates have gone Dutch, and we have great conversations about politics, human nature, history, science, etc. Not a single one who gives half a shit who some pop star is sleeping with.

    If I get the feeling she is one of those "basic" girls, I let slip the idea that I live at home to confirm what kind of girl she is.

    2. I'm an electrical engineer, so the majority of my income is going into savings, which I am using to make a large down-payment on a house. But yeah, there is quite a bit of it, and I'm not even officially "hired" yet, where I will see a nice pay boost. Let's not forget that I am generally quite handy.

    And yes, despite my desire to go Dutch on first dates, I DO enjoy getting you nice things now and again. I just don't buy anything for someone who expects it of me, and buy things for people who don't expect it.

    3. Now.. you can still be a chick magnet and live at home. It's just that a magnet is totally useless at a long distance. At an apartment or young community, people seem to know and meet each other more. Where I live... well... I just met my neighbor for the first time yesterday. She has lived there for 3 years.

    I don't have many problems with girls, just finding them.

    4. Lol. "Any whore he wants" I would think someone with more disposable income could, by definition, get any "whore" he wants. Unfortunately, I'm not much into whores, and I select against the kinds of girls who would be impressed by a thick wallet. (One girl was starting med school for, like, cardio-respiratory surgery or something. She liked to talk about the heart, lungs, and blood and stuff. Had it worked out for us, she would easily be making 4X my paycheck.)

    This Take is highly inaccurate, mostly because it generalizes men and what they do. Living at home doesn't mean disposable income. It also doesn't mean they're even working or that they'll treat you any differently than someone who is established. Also, a guy who wants me for me wouldn't make me worry about competition, whether or not he lived at home. Plus, how would I know he doesn't want me for MY money? I have a career, car, own place, and take of myself. Him living at home doesn't tell me that. I'd have to go based on his personality alone and at my age, I need to trust he knows how to 'adult'.

    Sorry, not buying it at all.

      I think your delusional and need a biology/gender dynamic lesson lol For a start men dont choose women on how much they make and the status that they want to get attached to. A women's value is determined by her beauty and fertility which starts decreasing after 30 am sorry to say, no matter what these feminists tell you. A woman can't buy a man like a man can buy a women because both sexes have their very own mating strategy. An money is not woman's :)

    • @Mrwoo99 I think you need a grammar and spelling lesson because I could barely read what you typed out.

      Biology has nothing to do with income. Nothing. And you didn't address the issue of how do I tell if he doesn't want me for my money?

    I can't say I agree with your points but I do think that the stigma against guys living with their parents is pretty silly. It's based on the assumption that the guy is only doing so because he can't support himself but there are many reasons beside from that. Perhaps he's more family-oriented and wants to be closer to them or even who knows maybe he's the one supporting them. Then there are guys my age who are in college and studying while living at home is just more financially sound.

      aren't you from a latin part of US though? you're definitely right that white girls do NOT have a very tolerant view when it comes to extended families. they just see guys that live at home as "scroungers" where I come from: i. e. they will "scrounge" off their parent's wallet and they will "scrounge" off the state rather than get a job. What they don't understand is that "just get a job" is not always advice that that's simple to apply. I've had my own predicament with this so feel strongly about it, especially if women are going to assume that you're a good for nothing and don't WANT to work because you haven't got a job / place of your own yet.

      If I'm being nice about those women they're just ignorant - and that's giving them the benefit of the doubt. Worse case scenario is: they are bad, judgmental people and probably gold diggers also.

    The reason why I'm still living there is to save money and not have to take further student loans, as I already owe $20,000 from my undergraduate years. The cost of rent is ridiculous these days, I see people like my sister paying $1000 a month.

    Depends on the reason. If he is living at home to save for the future or a house, it makes sense. Perhaps he wants to pay off his student loans, and it is easier to live at home. I'm understanding about that. The guy I am interested in right now moved back home to save for a house. He hates it, and he tells people that it's not the best environment for him, and he can't wait until he has enough for a down payment. That's understandable. I'm working on buying the condo I'm renting from the owners, and if it weren't for the fact that it would drive me nuts to live at home again, I'd consider it. I'm basically throwing money away by renting.

    Now a guy that just lives at home just to sponge off his parents is different. One of my co-workers has kids all in their 20s. Not one of them plans to move out, and he works two jobs to support them. That is ridiculous. He complains about it all the time.

    I haven't dated a girl yet that has a problem with me living with my aunt and mom at the age of 28. Their was a series of unfortunate events that led to moving back in with them and one of them is the break up with my girlfriend, we lived together and brought in two incomes to live where we lived. It's hard now an days to live on your own without a significant other or roommates to support the bill. On top of that we have to pay our phone bills, student loans, car insurance, car payment, It all adds up. I keep up with all my bills but it still doesn't leave me enough to live on my own.

    I feel embarrassed but then I don't feel embarrassed , it's weird. I do have my Masters degree but it's in a field that doesn't make a lot of money at the moment.

    Why do I live at home? Try getting an apartment in the Bay Area of California where even people with graduate degrees are struggling to make a living. Furthermore I've already decided that I will not move out until I get married. It has nothing to do with laziness but the fact that family is all I have, and I am especially close to them after a tumultuous childhood.

    I cannot be alone. I either need my family or a wife. Otherwise my depression will act up, and I may even be suicidal.

    I was excited to this read this Take based on the title, but unfortunately I feel like the content fell flat. You present many generalizations of both genders here, which doesn't help you at all. You're saying that women are just gold diggers? And that all wealthy guys are players/assholes?
    I don't want a guy to "worship" me because I'm the only one giving him a chance. I don't want him to be with me because I'm his only choice - I want him to pick me. I don't care if there's more "competition," at least then I'll know that he truly wants to be with me, and he's not just settling for me because I'm his only choice.
    You say that a guy living at home will be able to pamper me, but then say he's different from the wealthy guys - so which is it? Does he have money or not?
    I do agree that there are many benefits to living at home in your 20's. And a guy living at home is not a deal breaker. But there are many factors involved that I think you should have examined more. Living at home is an awesome way to save up money. My parents both lived at home before getting married. Then they had enough money to buy a house when they were married. If he's living at home to save up money, I definitely see that as a smart move (and it's the same thing I'm doing!) But not every 20-something who lives at home is saving up money. Some are living at home because they have no other choice and they're unemployed. Now, I would never automatically judge someone who is unemployed in this economy. Its tough out there for recent grads, so of course many are unemployed and living at home. But I want a partner who has a drive. If he's been applying and interviewing and doing his best but just isn't employed yet, that's totally understandable. But if he's not even trying to find a job, then I don't think we will have comparable personalities.
