Good news, single ladies: your husband-to-be would like to start treating you as you deserve and take you out on fancy dates! Of course, this will be after he’s off of work and has enough time to plan an elaborate evening for the two of you. Bad news, single ladies: your boyfriend would like to start treating you as you deserve and take you out on fancy dates! Of course, this will be after he’s off of work and has enough time to plan an elaborate evening for the two of you.
1) You have to take care of them
If you’re looking for reasons why having a boyfriend is like having a child, the list below should convince you. They are needy and require constant attention: they want to be with you constantly and need to know that you’re there. You have to take care of them, by supplying them with food, shelter and clothing. You have to teach them right from wrong and how not to make the same mistakes as their parents did. They can drive you crazy sometimes – but in a good way! As you learn more about them, your love grows deeper and stronger. They fill up your life with laughter, joy and happiness just as any child would do.
2) You have to be there for them
In addition to the typical things that make parenting difficult, like not getting enough sleep and arguing with your spouse, having a boyfriend can be tough for other reasons too. You have to be there for them when they’re sick, listen to their problems, and comfort them when they’re feeling down. Sometimes you’ll have to teach them about things like sex and money management. And you always want what’s best for him even if it means going against your family’s wishes or staying up late on the weekends.
3) You have to put up with their mood swings
When you have a boyfriend, you’re not only dealing with his mood swings, but yours as well. There are times when you can’t even remember what the fight was about because your brain has been foggy for days. You’ll catch him staring at his phone in the corner of your eye and it’ll get stuck on your mind that he’s talking to someone else. Even though you know it’s just an insecurity, it still convinces yourself he’s meeting up with some other girl or going to cheat on you. You’ll feel like you’re walking on eggshells around him and every time he gets mad at something small, it will turn into this huge thing that leaves both of you feeling guilty or upset.
4) You have to deal with their mess
You have to deal with their mess: whether it’s clothes, food, or clutter, you have to clean up after them. You have to take care of them when they’re sick: from changing the bandages on their boo-boo’s to feeding them soup and medicine when they’re not feeling well. They require your time: time for homework help, playtime, family dinners, walks in the park…you get the idea! If you have more than one child or a husband and kids, you will spend an exorbitant amount of money. They come with a lot of responsibility: ensuring that they eat healthy meals, drink plenty of water and sleep properly are just some examples. They sometimes talk back to you: let’s be honest, we all know what happens next when they do this! You can’t ignore them when they cry: no matter how many times you yell at them to stop being so dramatic! They sometimes don’t listen: just like children do during those terrible two’s and three’s years old .
5) You have to deal with their friends
It’s not always easy to deal with our partner’s friends. They can be just as judgmental as people who don’t know us at all. I’ll never forget the time my girlfriend and I were out for dinner with her brother, sister-in-law, and their two kids. We were sitting in the restaurant waiting for a table when one of them said I can see you’re going to have children soon then laughed and walked away. My girlfriend was so embarrassed she started crying right there in the middle of the restaurant.
6) You have to watch over them
The first reason having a boyfriend is like having a child is because you have to watch over them constantly. You have to watch them when they’re in your house and when they’re outside of it. You need to make sure that the person you are dating respects your space, treats your belongings with respect, and doesn’t do anything that will hurt your reputation. You also have to make sure that the person you are dating doesn’t get into any trouble with other people in general as it may reflect on you.
The second reason having a boyfriend is like having a child is because you know all their secrets. This can be either extremely good or bad depending on what they’ve done in the past but it’s always something that has an effect on how they act in their present life.
7) You have to worry about them
You’re always trying to figure out what they want. It’s not really about you, it’s about them. They’re always wanting something from you. You have to be there for them, but they don’t have the same responsibility to you. They can’t do anything on their own without your help, and when they finally do do something on their own without your help, it’s because of your input and guidance. When they make a mess, it’s your fault because you were supposed to keep an eye on them. When they get in trouble with school or whatever else happens in their life, that’s also your fault for letting this happen.
