One thing a lot of dating tips fail to mention is what to expect when you’re dating a guy who lives with his parents. There’s nothing bad in dating a guy who lives with his parents, but it can cause some troubles in your relationship if you don’t know how to put up with his lifestyle.

Dating A Guy Who Lives With His Parents

Dating a guy who still lives at home comes with certain; how do we say, baggage and it’s important you know what to expect so you can decide if you want to be in a relationship with one.

No privacy

One thing we all know comes with living with our parents is lack of privacy. And that’s what is going to come with dating a guy who lives with his parents, regardless of his age. You have to be ready for one parent always interrupting your intimate moments and being in your space. While it may not necessarily be a bad thing, you just have to be aware of the fact you guys will most likely not have a private moment whenever you go visiting.


One thing every parent is fond of is interrupting. You could be talking with your boyfriend in the kitchen, and his parent could suddenly come and send him on an errand; then you’ll find yourself in an awkward situation. Dating a boyfriend that lives with his parent means you won’t have his undivided attention. You should definitely get ready to have romantic sessions interrupted or outrightly stopped too.


It’s one thing to date a guy, and it’s another thing to date him and have to constantly be around his parents. One thing that happens a lot when you’re dating a guy who lives with his parents is that his parents may disapprove of your relationship. If his parents don’t like you, you’ll constantly be aware of it, and it can be very annoying. And sometimes it may not only be his parents who disapprove but his whole family. It can feel like the odds are stacked against you when this happens. If your boyfriend doesn’t have a mind of his own, he could eventually get pressured into breaking up with you.

Daddy/Mummy’s boy

Hate to break it to you, but if a guy still lives with his parents, it possibly means he’s a mummy or daddy’s boy. It means you will be seeing a lot of cuddly and possibly cringe moments between him and either of his parents. If you don’t mind seeing embarrassing moments between a guy and his parents, you will probably enjoy your relationship. The embarrassing moments won’t only be with his parents, it could also be with his other family members if he has a big family.

Dating someone who still lives with their parents doesn’t always have to turn out badly once you have clear expectations. Once you know what to expect when dating a guy that lives with his parents, you’ll be able to deal with what comes with it.
