Dating emotionally immature man
But if you’re taking ‘fun’ to such a level that only an 8 year old would enjoy, then I definitely have a problem. Just as Urban Dictionary defines the term manchild, it is a man who is so immature that they are considered a child.
By ‘immature’ I mean that this man can’t take care of himself in any way, shape, or form.

Forget drinking games, board games, and even a nice game of Frisbee because if he loses – or even if he wins – he’ll be a sore loser or a gloating, insulting winner. [Read: Selfishness in relationships and 15 ways to deal with it the right way] #9 He has no idea how to handle his finances.
For some reason it seems like there is a manchild epidemic threatening to take over the world.
Since our generations don’t stress the need for growing up and becoming a ‘man,’ some people just never seem to catch up to their actual age anymore, whereas in past generations, you needed to get your act together by the age of 16 and grow up.
If you come last when it comes to his friends and hobbies, you’re dating a manchild who obviously is too immature to handle the realities of a relationship. If not, then he’s too immature to realize that these are important adult matters that need to be taken care of.
#15 He puts you down in front of your and his friends.
So he’ll just slump down for a while following constructive criticism. If arguing with your boyfriend is completely pointless because there’s just no way he’ll ever see your side because he’s always right, you may be dating a manchild.
Guys who don’t get that don’t have the maturity it takes to have a good relationship. There’s a difference between loving one’s mom and being a Mama’s Boy.
If Mommy still has to coddle him, or if he allows Mommy to make dating decisions for him, cut him loose.
Don’t let him invade your life and continue with his childish antics. A guy who throws dirty dishes into the sink without even rinsing them and then lets them fester there for days until you finally have had enough, is nothing more than your typical manchild. If your boyfriend is harping at you to cook, clean, do the laundry, and all of the stuff that the ‘girl is supposed to do’ he hasn’t matured yet at all. You know, like how a toddler would throw everything they’re holding and lay on the ground screaming until you give them what they want.
If you’re not sure if your man qualifies as an annoying manchild, here are some signs to tell for sure and just what you can do to fix it. #2 He doesn’t even know HOW to clean up after himself. He can’t handle it when life in general doesn’t cater to his every need. A manchild just can’t take it when someone tells them how they can do something better.If he can’t be respectful enough to be on time, it’s time to call it quits. When a guy does this, it’s just painfully gross and extremely unattractive.
