He has an intrusive mother who comes over unannounced every week for various reasons, to check up on him, to do him favors (any ironing dear?
And despite having a one to one conversation with him she always manages to interfere even when she's not actually there. We pray it’s not a monster-in-law situation, but if she’s constantly hugging and kissing him more than you’ve ever done it’s GAME ON girl. Actually, they tend to be more respectful and kind towards their partners, which is a major plus for us.
Hidden among a sea of handsome, intelligent and successful men are Diary of a Wimpy Kid boys that cannot make a move without their mama. Broad shoulders, receding hairlines, and the marks of wisdom and maturity.
But on the inside, they are cowardly little poodles that cannot withstand or pull free from the stranglehold that is their mother.
He might spend so much time with her that you wonder who's actually in the relationship. It can happen, but on the other hand, mama’s boys do come with some major perks. If you're dating a man who clearly loves his mom it's almost ALWAYS a good sign. If you're man is still living at home and he's over 25 or if he's always calling mom for help and advice on every aspect of his life, then maybe this whole mother and son bond thing isn't as great as you hoped. For the sake of your future, he needs to do it himself.
These type of men tend to understand their girlfriend's better and seem to have more respect and love towards their partners. You're right to raise an eyebrow, but (and this is a BIG but) mama's boys are so understanding towards their women, not to mention pretty thoughtful too. Hardly surprising when she does literally everything for him! Your boyf thinks she’s amazing, but you think she’s nuts!
But when the big reveal comes…it is insidious and can completely make the ‘other women’ in their life feel manipulated and powerless against the looming power of Mama!
The best advice is to look for the signs while you are dating, to ensure that your man is not an undercover mama’s boy. Look for signs that he is calling his mother when he is not with you. But if your man seems to disappear just to dial his mother, when he knows you are out of ear shot – you can bet he is a mama’s boy. If you know your man isn’t the particularly neat and tidy kind, but his house is impeccable and he doesn’t have a maid – watch out.
Yet when a mother cannot let go of her son and feels that he is a piece of property, which she owns and isn’t for sale – your dating life can be miserable.Dating a mama’s boy is definitely one of the largest trials in a relationship. Might be that he spends his weeknights being tended to by mama, evident by creases in his jeans that he has never sent off to the dry cleaners. Tupperware containers filled with meals labeled by the day of the week could mean something beside OCD. In your relationship, you probably think it’s cute, even sweet that he takes such good care of his mother.As time goes on though you will realize that the obsession becomes a little weird.There is nothing wrong with a man loving his mom, even making sure that she is always okay.But when he depends upon her, cannot go a day without calling her (and she’s not sick) or she is the first person he does call when he has something as trite as a stuffy nose, you are in deep doodoo.You will realize that the closer YOU get to your man, the closer his mama pulls and her main goal is to get you out of the picture.
