Glad it worked out for you. Somewhat similar story. I work out with a guy who is in mid 40's. Super nice guy, good job. Never married-still lives at home. His mom washes his clothes and makes his breakfast and dinner. He still does stuff like when he was in college-going out to bars. He asked me one day if still living at home at his age is the reason why women turn him down for dates or don't date him after a few dates when they find out. I didn't know what to say. My gf knows him and laughs all the time that it's way past time his mom cuts the cord.
Luckily, mine isn’t that bad. One thing his mom did right - taught him to respect women. He spoils me and is a great husband. So good that I’ve kept him around for 31+ years now.
We were over at our kid’s house. Our son-in-law had a couple of friends over who are college students. Geeky types. He was telling them how they needed to act to get into a relationship. I so wanted to say “moving out of your mom’s house would be a good start”. Both kids still lived at home and were in their late 20’s.
