"It does not take testicles, if he want to be free he needs to find a job away from his current location and move. Or simply tell his father to write and move out and not give his mom the phone number."
"I have to agree with Jack on this. You can't drag someone out of a situation they don't want to be in or can't see the exit for. I had a friend who refused to get over being shy to find a job. He got done with…"

"Thx Will! I believe that he does want to be free. Sometimes I wish I had testicles, maybe I could help him more! Im not much of a "woman" in the "traditional" sense. I should have been my fathers second son!"

I don't think you should give up on him. Nobody is…"
Looking for some input/ suggestions... I know a guy, very wonderful guy (only child) who is 35 yrs old and still lives at home (claims hes never had the $ to leave cause he has to pay for everything mom wants or get a huge guilt trip/bitching at).

His father knows hes married and is cool with it. Neither will…See More
