Is my man cheating on me…with his mother? If you are feeling like this, chances are you have a mama’s boy.
The psyche of the mama’s boy, is particularly annoying to me. You know exactly the kind of man I am referring too. He appears to have it all together but when in the company of his mother he totally losses it and can’t think for himself.
Why can’t these grown a*s men cut the umbilical cord and why don’t they understand that women don’t want a mama’s boy?
The relationship of a mama’s boy and his mother knows little to no boundaries. In severe cases, mom might still be cooking, cleaning and washing clothes for this grown man. I’ve known mothers who have made doctor’s appointments and called jobs when not needed. That’s sounds more like a WIFE than a MOTHER to me. If I sound a little bit too familiar with this particular species, your right. Without putting myself on blast, let’s just say, I know a mama’s boy or two.
Don’t get it twisted! You can’t always pick out a mama’s boy in the crowd. They are not always broke slackers who live in the basement. Today’s mama’s boy has achieved great things except true independence. Doctors, lawyers and successful business owners can proudly wear the title of mama’s boy and see no issue with doing so.
You know the old saying; “You can tell how a man will treat his woman by the way he treats his mother.” In all fairness, what can we tell about a man by the way his mother treats him? I know the answer to that one…if he’s a mama’s boy!
If he talks or texts his mom throughout your dates and there is no family issues or emergencies at the time – run. My best advice is cut it off before you invest more time and feelings. A mama’s boy, can be charming and before you know it, you may be sucked in!
In all fairness, our mama’s boys, can’t take all the blame. A lot of women are single mothers and their sons become their companion. In many cases, these young boys are raised that way and have no clue about being a man. We as women have to stop that! If you’re a single mother, please make sure there is a strong male role model in your child’s life. He is your child and not your companion.
Finally, there is no pay-off for dating a mama’s boy. More than likely, his mother won’t like you – because nothing is good enough for her son and that is one battle I don’t wish on any of my sisters. A real man can have a fulfilling relationship with both his mother and woman. It really shouldn’t be a battle because aren’t we all suppose to be family (LOL).
But if your already hooked on a mama’s boy, here’s 3 tips that can help save your relationship.
1. Become BFFs with his mom (this way you can take over her role).
2. Have a heart-to-heart discussion with your man (lay down the law)
3. If #1 and #2 don’t work …BE OUT!
