Dating a boy
The official beginning of adulthood has always been on a sliding scale.

Unless, of course, that's where he plans on staying. Grown men have plans to get themselves from point A to point B. No matter how drunk he is, no matter the situation…
if your man is able to take care of himself and get his sh*t done, then he's a grown man.
