There are certain types of men most women would rather avoid like the plague. Somewhere along the “undatable” pyramid are the usual suspects: drunkards, serial cheaters, lazy bones. Also making an appearance is the cause of numerous headaches. The mama’s boy.
Nothing is more appealing than a man who has a healthy relationship with his mother. A man who cannot seem to get along with his mother raises a couple of red flags. Unless of course the underlying reasons are understandable. How he treats this premier woman will reflect greatly on how he treats you. However there is a clear line that divides a man that has respect and love for his mother with one that is the dreaded mama’s boy. Don’t be too quick to dismiss these signs that you are dealing with the later. It could save you a good amount of drama.
Mother’s opinions weigh more than anyone else’s
Yes, she may be the wisest person on earth but when a man has to run to his mother before he makes any crucial decisions then he has crossed the line into mama’s boy territory. He has no considerations for your input in the matter and will likely ignore your obviously sound reasoning in favor of his mother’s. If he has to rush and talk to “mummy” before sealing any deal, you should rush in the other direction.
He always takes mother’s side
No man wants to be in the middle of his warring mother and girlfriend/wife. However, when it comes to the mama’s boy, mama reigns supreme. Women who have dated such a man know how hurtful and annoying this can get. Being with a mama’s boy means having to agree that mother is always right, even when it’s painfully obvious that she’s in the wrong. You can’t win here. If you can’t walk away, you need to learn to keep your opinions to yourself.
His mother meddles in everything
Anyone who has dated this kind of man knows how irritating mother dearest can be. She constantly pokes her nose in your affairs. She needs to be kept in the loop with what’s happening in her son’s life. She doesn’t like how you feed or dress her boy. She can do it better than you, and in some cases, she still wants to baby him around. She prefers his previous woman to you, and has no issues letting you know this. It doesn’t help that your man confides in her mother about all the details in his life, including private information.
He shows mother more affection
There is little doubt he loves his queen. Not you. Mother. He constantly talks about her. He has no qualms about spending significant amounts of money and time on her. They talk almost every day. You get the paltry seconds. He throws some subtle or major hints to make sure you are aware that you can never compare to his mother. Despite his good pay and age, he may take forever to leave the nest. Nothing could be worse than being far from mummy.
