The moment you see your boyfriend acting childish next to you this shows that he is super comfortable next to you.

 

He is used to you to the extent that he is letting himself loose because he knows you won’t judge him or conclude that he is immature.

This is why your boyfriend acts childish around you;

1. He is super excited to be next to you.

The way your boyfriend handles himself around you also says a lot about his mood.

 

If your boyfriend acts like a kid—coming up with so many jokes, dancing, and jumping around, this shows that he is so happy to be next to you.

 

He is excited to see you and spend some time with you and that is why he acts this way.

 

If you have been away from each other for a while and after you met this is how he behaves just know that he is super excited to see you.

 

He can’t hold his emotions inside. His actions portray that he is hyped and full of energy because of your presence.

 

When a guy is happy to see you, the first thing you will notice is his smile, how he talks to you, how romantic he gets, and how he behaves around you.

 

For your boyfriend, he is showing you his joy through what he is doing.

 

Kids are usually playful and joyous when they are happy. So, if you see your man acting like a kid, he is just happy to be around you.

 

He doesn’t have to say to you that he is excited to have you around.

 

What he does around you says it all.

 

If a guy is unhappy to be around you, he will keep his cool. He won’t do anything to give you the impression that he is impressed being around you.

 

He will be so serious and won’t entertain jokes when he is around you.

 

If you had issues to talk about that is what he will go straight into and nothing else.

 

2. He wants to make you happy.

This is another thing you should know about why your man behaves like a little kid.

 

Your boyfriend is trying to make you happy, that is why he is silly and goofy around you.

 

It can be that he noticed you are down, you are gloomy and everything about your body language suggests that you are unhappy.

 

He is trying to cheer you up.

 

Your man knows you better than I do. Maybe he observed that being goofy next to you during your lows will lighten you up.

 

He wants you to smile and laugh at what he is doing just to get your mind off what is going on.

 

Men have different ways to impress their girlfriends. Maybe this is your boyfriend’s way of cheering you up.

 

Anyway, that is what a relationship should be about — making each other happy during your lowest moments in life.

 

I bet you don’t see this version of him every day. He just wants to make you happy.

 

You will loosen up and forget anything that is draining you when you focus on what he is doing.

 

This is not something he does every day and that is why you are surprised by this.

 

3. He enjoys spending time with you.

When a guy acts childish next to you it’s because he enjoys spending his time with you.

 

Your presence next to him is a big deal. He can’t hold his emotions and that is why he is behaving like a kid.

 

If a guy enjoys your company he will want to be around you for hours.

 

The things he will do and talk about when around will be to increase the time you spend together.

He will talk about things that you are interested in, do things to make you happy, be himself around you, and constantly tell you how amazing you are.

 

Your boyfriend will always make an excuse to be next to you.

 

On the contrary, when a guy is not happy to spend his time with you the first thing you will notice is that he will try everything to walk away from you.

 

He will keep the conversation dry and short, he won’t do or talk about things you enjoy and he will try to push you away.

 

All these things are just to make you spend less time with him.

 

To be honest, you won’t be happy to be around someone who keeps scolding you.

 

He is behaving like a kid next to you because you guys are a vibe. You connect exactly the way he wants.

 

You make him happy and complete when you are together. The part of him acting childish is just to show you that he is willing to spend the entire day with you.

 

If he didn’t enjoy your company he would be straight to the point just to share what he wanted to and walk away.

 

He wouldn’t have had the time to joke around and talk about things that don’t make sense.

 

4. He wants to get your reaction.

A guy will do something just to get your reaction. So, it can be that your boyfriend wants to hear what you will say and what you will do when he is acting like a child next to you.

 

He knows what he is doing, it’s not that he is not aware that you see him.

 

It’s just like when someone makes a joke or says something silly just to get to hear your response.

 

When someone does something just to get your reaction, they are trying to learn something about you.

 

It can be that they want to know what you think about them and how you feel about what they do.

 

Your boyfriend wants to know what you think of him and that is why he is acting childish to get you to comment about what he does.

 

Maybe he wants to know if you like it when he behaves the way he does or if it’s something that irritates you.

 

If you don’t like the way he handles himself then you will say it out or you will make a reaction that will enable him to understand what you feel about what he does.

 

This is what he is hoping to achieve and that is why he acts the way he does next to you.

 

5. He thinks you like it when he is goofy.

Let me be honest with you, if your boyfriend knew that you hate it when he acts like a kid around you, he wouldn’t have been doing it.

 

Your boyfriend thinks that you like it when jokes and plays around with you.

 

You might have given him the impression that you always fancy it when he is goofy around you.

 

The moment a guy notices that if he does a certain thing you are always happy, he will keep doing it just to make you feel that way.

 

I don’t know the impression you gave him, but it sounds like he thinks you enjoy seeing him acting like a child next to you.

 

This is true especially if he has been doing it often.

 

If you gave him the impression that you don’t like it when he acts like a kid next to you, he wouldn’t have been doing this.

 

It can be that you entertain what he does when he is next to you and that is why he keeps doing it.

 

6. Your boyfriend wants to get your attention.

When you don’t give your boyfriend attention while he is next to you this is what he will start to do.

 

Let me talk of the situations that will force your boyfriend to seek your attention by behaving like a child next to you.

 

For instance, if he did something to annoy you, he apologized but you still seem mad at him and you have decided to distance yourself from him, he will act childish around you just to get you to give him your attention.

 

He knows that when he starts acting like a child it may either provoke you or make you happy and this might be the reason for you to start talking to him even if you didn’t want to.

 

If you don’t like what he is doing you will tell him to stop doing what he does even if you don’t want to talk to him.

 

The push and pull will get you to start talking to him like nothing happened. This is what he is hoping to achieve.

 

On the other hand, if you enjoy what he is doing you will start to smile and laugh, this will fix the issue between the two of you and you will start talking to him again.

 

Also, it can be that you are too busy doing something else and you don’t give him the attention he wants.

 

He knows that when he starts being goofy it will force you to stop what you are doing and look at him or talk to him.

If your boyfriend acts like a kid and you don’t like it because it’s too much the best thing you can do is to be honest with him. Let him know that you don’t like it when he behaves that way.

 

When your boyfriend knows that you don’t fancy how he handles himself next to you he will stop.

 

Maybe he jokes around when you want to talk about important issues. He doesn’t give you a chance to express what you want to.

 

This is when you should put a stop to this. Let him know that there is time for jokes and serious matters.

 

Lastly…

If he doesn’t make you happy by acting the way he does you should be honest with him.

 

Let him know that you don’t like how he behaves and he should stop it.

 

But if you enjoy him being silly and goofy around you just be kids together and enjoy your time being around each other.
