Hi, I'm Mario. This is where I live.
Walking down the piazza you see an olive skinned hunk. He approaches you and asks if you want to share a bowl of spaghetti. You consent and you hop in a fire-red Ferrari as he leads you to a large and gorgeous house. When you enter the kitchen, an older lady walks in and begins to make lunch. Is it his maid? No. It's his mom.
A recent study has shown that nearly 82% of young Italian men still live at home up to age 30. Don't be impressed by his big house. He lives in the basement. That glorious home-cooked food? Made by his mother. The fancy sports car? His mom used her husband's estate to bribe him out of the house. Does his mom 'really' like you? No. She wants her son out.
Are you looking for a hot European man to spend your quiet time with. Go to Sweden. The same study shows that by the age of 25 about 90% of young Swedes have their own flat.
