Staying with the baby mama

You’re probably thinking, ‘hell no!’ Well, some people do it and it’s real. He will probably go the emotional blackmail route: ‘I don’t want my child growing up on the streets.’ You don’t want to be a bad person by telling him to kick them out so you try to put up with it. Girl, you’ll run out of patience.

Living with his mama

This can be circumstantial, however he needs to have a plan of moving out soon. This arrangement works for some people but for some it’s a total disaster. Chances are you’ll be getting very little attention because you know boys and their mothers…

Crashing with a friend

And by that he means he’s sleeping on his friend’s couch. The only time this should be acceptable is if his house caught fire or just he just recently relocated to a new city. It should last a month, maximum. Anything longer than this is unreasonable.

Room mates

Unless he’s an undergrad, there’s absolutely no reason for a grown man to be living with a squad of boys.

A dump

The house doesn’t have to be a mansion but can it be decent. No hanging wires over your head, holes in the walls, not enough water in the gyser… This is a mood killer and can put off any woman.
