If the guy is a kid, he will certainly be stressed and possessive, wanting to stop you from talking to some other guy or impinging on the outfit you wear. A man who finds everything made by mom the best thing in the world. He tries to show you that he sees a future with you. But of course love and relationships are more complicated than that. He diminishes your confidence every chance he can get. What is it with mothers that we need to please them all the time? He wants to try and push you over the edge to see if you would still come back to him. .
Keep in mind that while spending time with your mom is great, spending time with your partner is equally great too. He has no ambition to improve his life in any way shape or form. When deep issues arise, does he make a joke, change the topic, look at his phone and ignore you, or turn the tables and blame you? He would never do or say anything to lift you up or boost your confidence. It would always be best for you to only be dating real men. He cares about you and knows that words fall short of the emotions he feels for you.
He might not be able to buy you an iPad for Christmas but he will get you the best thing he can afford! Not a garbage dump, but an actual apartment. A mature man understands that he will grow as a man if his woman is growing as a woman. Respect is respect, and if he knows that he respects them, he will tend to respect you. He feeds off of your insecurities. A boy will play games to try and maintain the power in a relationship, while a man is confident and comfortable putting himself out there and letting go of power. Does he make your pleasure a priority? You could say that a boy can be inconsiderate.
He treats love as if it were a game. Grown men have plans to get themselves from point A to point B. A man is not afraid to have the hard conversations and deal with the tough emotions in a relationship, because he knows those conversations are what allow you to become closer as a couple, and both find freedom within the relationship. Sneaking peeks at his phone while he is in a conversation with you is a big no-no. Of course, feeling jealous once in a while is normal — after all we are all human beings — but maturity shows itself in the way a person acts in relation to that feeling. You can see him working and doing his best.
A boy will get wrapped up in his ego, forcefully trying to prove his point and be right, while a man would much rather be in love than be right. But the difference between a man and a boy is that the man knows you hate that kind of shit and makes a suggestion anyway. If he is incapable of doing so, your relationship might not go a long way! A mature man is stimulated by a smart woman. A romantic dinner is not that. Even the best relationships have friction.
Boys are going out to the bar and getting hammered every weekend, playing video games and wasting time, and binge watching series on Netflix every single Saturday afternoon the couch. One must admit that there comes a time when we all mature and simply can not live in the midst of the mess. We actually have to do this at least a couple of times a year -- give a full week or two to our mothers. He understands that being wrong is part of human nature. If your boyfriend receives his salary one day and the next week he has already toyed with all the money — even if he is partly buying gifts to please you — this may be a sign of lack of control, impulsivity, and that he is not thinking too much in the long run deadline. Someone who can make you laugh, but will always be there when you cry.
You know, the one who is so obsessed with pleasing his mom that he ends up wanting you to do the same. A man who respects and loves you will respect the people you love and who love you too. He shows respects towards himself by dressing well and he respects the time you have together by caring about how he presents himself. He wants to suppress all his insecurities as much as possible. He only sees the end result, which is, well you know.
He does not nod cluelessly when you talk. I was a scared little boy trying to make a girl happy. Needless to say you will definitely want to be dating a man if you are looking for something stable, consistent, and strong. A boy can often be struggling to find his personal identity as a man, which carries over to him not knowing what role to play within your relationship. He gets threatened whenever you start having success. Sure, he may be a really wonderful man. Most of them might prove very good at playing around and hiding the repelling aspects of their personalities.
However, they do so respectfully and are always open to hearing your thoughts on the matter. Because of this, these responsibilities have magically fallen into your lap. The boy will stay in his comfort zone, whereas a mature man wants the challenge of a smart woman. But a man has the wherewithal and intelligence to objectively look at himself and admit to his wrong doings. Such type of people have issues which are bound to reveal themselves in an unexpected nasty way someday. I mean, why would any man want his girl to constantly chat with his mom? In fact, his home and office are pretty much sanctuaries of his mom, decorated with photos from childhood to yesterday. Especially when they're an adult? He throws food at you at parties.
