Is the new man in your life a perennial little boy? You know the type we’re talking about: the guy who wants to have it all, just like a child does. He wants the fun, the excitement, and the anticipation. He doesn’t think about what comes tomorrow—he only worries about the right now.

If you’re not sure if the man you’re dating is a man or a boy, read the checklist below and let our Pittsburgh matchmakers know how your guy measures up.

The Romeo in your life might not be Romeo after all. He might be Peter Pan if he:

1. He doesn’t follow through with his word.

A Peter Pan will do everything in his power to make life easier on himself, which includes making promises he doesn’t intend to stick to. If you ask him to do something and he agrees, it’s just to get you off his back, not because he plans to do it. This shows you that he is immature.

2. He doesn’t care about the future.

Does your new man dangle a doughnut in front of you and just when you get close he moves it farther away from you so you don’t know where you stand? You can tell a lot about a guy by the way he acts. If he thinks life is a joke and doesn’t care about the future, then he is definitely a Peter Pan. This type of attitude shows serious commitment issues.

3. He avoids talking about the relationship.

Children, as we know, like to avoid things that are confrontational. They would much rather pretend like everything is fine and dandy and carry on as normal. Does that sound like the new man in your life? Of course, no one wants to deal with relationship issues, but they need to be dealt with. If your boyfriend avoids talking about serious relationship issues, he could be a Peter Pan. The fact that he isn’t interested in fixing the problem shows you that he’s not mature to be in a relationship.

4. He overreacts and puts blame on others.

When you try to bring up issues in your relationship or try to discuss anything remotely serious, a Peter Pan is likely to overreact and put the blame on you. “Why would you bring that up when we’re having such a wonderful date? Way to ruin my date…. You’re so inconsiderate.” Sound like your man? Again, this is a classic way of a Peter Pan avoiding responsibility. They always blame others for everything that’s going wrong in their life.

5. He loves to have fun.

There’s something women can’t help but to love about a Peter Pan—and that’s his love for fun. While he might not be so great at serious stuff, he definitely knows how to have a good time. Unfortunately, that’s all he knows how to do. “Adulting” stresses the life out of him. This guy is addicted to everything fun and lighthearted, which can put a stressor on your relationship. Sure, he might surprise you with a weekend getaway or take you to a fun comedy show after a long day of work, but when it comes to serious things, he runs away just like a kid.

Real men are very hard to find nowadays. Though many guys say they’re grown men, the sad truth is that many of them are still just boys. If you’re tired of meeting immature men who aren’t capable of being in a mature relationship, contact our Pittsburgh matchmakers and let us introduce you to mature men who are relationship-ready (and worthy).
