    Whenever I've heard an adult be described as acting like a child, I usually take it to mean they're being lazy or shirking their responsibilities.

    But my girlfriend will sometimes actually act like a child. I love her "adult" self - she's educated, a teacher, and pretty switched on.

    However, when she's really excited, nervous or sad she will kind of revert to a childlike personality. She puts on a baby voice, pouts, makes cutesy noises etc. If this was in context it would be OK, but sometimes it almost seems to happen uncontrollably. What's going on here? Some context - she's 27, has very protective parents and tends to struggle in situations where she has to act formally (outside of teaching). I love her but I'm having trouble dealing with this.

    Sounds nauseating.


    Remind her that she's a grown-ass woman; tell 'er to down a glass of cement and harden the fuck up. Good luck, TS.

    My girlfriend does the baby voice to our dog. It's weird but I guess people do it. She also still calls her dad "daddy", which is also weird to me but whatever.

    Ditch her, now. I mean literally now, things won't get better, only worse. Get her out of your life.

    Bro if that's the biggest issue that ain't shit, just deal with it and keep going. If she's worth it, don't let it ruin shit.

    Tell her if she wants to act like a child you'll treat her like a child. If she continues acting childish after that get rid of her.

    Send her to S.Korea or Japan so she can find her soul mate.

    Sit her down and ask her what the hell is going on with this childlike behavior. Then decide if she is really worth the trouble and if not then make yourself a plan B real fast.

    Well, wanting Sherdog to help you isn't helping your case.

    She most likely thinks she's being adorable and cute. Ignore her when she does it.

    That's her indirect way of telling you she likes anal. Start giving it to her in the butt & it will be fine

    She was obviously molested. I'm not even joking she was sexualized at a young age.

    Pretty much what Faustian says. Victims revert to whatever mental age they were abused at.

    The best answer.

    If she's a great lady and a keeper aside from this one issue try gently bringing it up and tell her it bothers you. If she's worth keeping and she thinks you are worth keeping then she'll consider your thoughts and either she will try and stop or she will give you some sort of reason which may help you understand, and it may not bother you as much afterwards.

    As much as some of us on here may want to help you, really you have to help yourself on this one.
