1. Basically accept this state of affairs
If you are definitely looking for a modern boy who masters as a chef the use of the brush and knows how to change a layer in forty seconds chrono, better put an end point right away to your story with Tanguy. Because even galvanized by your lovethis fat, lazy little baby, who will soon be in the 30's, will never become a hyperactive domestic worker.
2. Manage important steps
To guard against disappointments and unpleasant surprises, it is also advisable that you take care of the tasks of "adult". Ask him to make a transfer every month and then assume the payment of the bills and the payment of the rent.

Show him your discontent, if necessary through a small sex strike!
4. Play (temporarily) the same game as him
He has always refused to put away any socks? To approach the least sponge or wipe? Try the experience of doing nothing at all for a week or two (for the more adventurous). Faced with the laundry that is piling up in the basket, the dishes that stagnate in the sink, it will eventually end up putting itself on.
5. Get him to work on himself
It is not about harassing him with reproaches or endless discussions about his irresponsibility ... But if he does not change an inch, bring back the topic regularly, explaining how it hurts you and bridle your feelings. Encourage him to consult a psychiatrist: the immature children are often children who have had too much of a relationship with their mother and have not mourned their childhood ...
