Too Old To Live At Home

Aug. 4, 2015

Dear Cathy:

What age is too old to live with your mother?  I recently moved to a small town and I am attracted to a man who is 40 years old but still lives with his mother.  I am torn between continuing a relationship with him or cutting it off.  Can a man who still lives with his mother be serious about a relationship?  Still Staying At Home, California

Dear Still Staying At Home:

Sure, any man can be serious about a relationship.  However, many women would never look at a man twice who is still living with his mother, but before you allow your mind to wander any further, you should ask him why he still stays with her. 

There could be a good reason for this.  Is he a caregiver for her?    Many elderly parents are sick today and many adult children have had to give up their livelihoods and move back in to take care of them.  And because of the fallen economy, many families have chosen to continue to live together. 

So before turning your back on what could possibly be a good mate for you down the line, sit down and talk things out with him.  Don’t throw the baby out with the bath water – so weigh all your options.
