Would you date a 40 year old man...

...that still lives with his parents? They are elderly if that makes a difference. I'm not questioning his character or anything, because I know he's a good guy...just the fact that he lives with his parents. Would this be a deal-breaker to you or no?

  • It depends on why. If he is taking care of them, fine. If he is freeloading, not fine.

  • Would I? Yes. I would. Why not give the guy a shot? Just living with his parents doesn't mean much to me.

  • I f he is there to care for them I wouldn't have a problem with it. If he was there because he never got his stuff together well enough to move out then that would scare me away.

  • That is if they dont live with him, its totally different. He he takes care of them and they are living with him, than yes but if it was the other way around no.

    When I met my husband I found out he was still living home with mommy, at that point i wasnt going to date him anymore, but I found out he only moved in when his dad got sick to help her with his little brother and the bills. WAY different story. :)

  • It all depends. With the way this economy is now, several people have no choice but to do what they can not to live on the streets.
