Living with parents and dating

If she ain’t buying it, start sniffling, and then start balling your eyes out that all you want to do is be at home to take care of your father given his bladder problems.Tell her it’s hard for you to share your soft side because society puts so much pressure on men to be the provider.In fact, ask her to bring her entire two weeks worth of laundry for your parents to wash.

I am one of those millennials that has yet to settle down with a romantic partner.

After living in one of Canada's most expensive rental markets (Toronto) for over twelve years, I broke up with my long term partner.

In need of a fresh start, I moved back to my hometown on the West Coast.

In a city where a shabby 1950 bungalows sell for more than 0,000, living at home seemed like the smartest option.

Nearly half (48 per cent) of Canadians find it unattractive or "embarrassing beyond words" if their date were to pick them up in a vehicle owned by friends or a parent.

However, if you're a millennial living at home or in a large urban core, owning your own car isn't necessarily realistic.Since moving back home, I've launched a business and a career that I love, paid off commercial debt and saved money towards a down-payment on an apartment. However, my living situation has definitely impacted my dating life.As someone who writes about dating, relationships and sex for a living, the first thing people always ask me when I tell them about my living situation is, "how does that work?The reality is, the way to a woman’s heart is also through her stomach, so feed her well. When your girl stays over while you’re sporting your favorite Star Trek PJs, tell her to not worry about her laundry.You’re going to ask your mom to hook you guys up with some fresh undies.I live in a city where almost everything is accessible by foot or bike.
