5 Things You Should Know Before Dating A Mama’s Boy
You’ve just started dating this lovely guy. He’s sweet and attentive, but a few weeks into your new relationship, you realize he’s a total mama’s boy. What does this mean for you? What’s it like dating a mama’s boy? And what are the future prospects for the three of you in the relationship?
Here are the 5 things you need to know before you start dating a mama’s boy.
You won’t be the only woman in his life.
It sounds obvious I know, but it’s something so many women underestimate. A mama’s boy isn’t just fond of his mom. He’s crazy about her and she’s just as nuts about him.
They have an unbreakable bond that goes way above the normal once or twice a week phone call. He is her everything, and she’s devoted her life to making him happy. Don’t think for one moment just because he’s falling in love with you, he’s falling out of love with his Mom. He’ll never stop loving his mom, and unless you can cope with sharing his heart, you better end things before you even get started.
He won’t be independent.
The mama’s boy is used to having everything done for him. His mom will have done his washing, his cooking, his cleaning, and even his shopping. I know men in their 40s who still take their laundry over to their mom’s house. That’s right: grown men of 40 years old that still get Mom to wash their smalls!
He’ll compare you to her.
It doesn’t matter whether it’s the way you make the bed, or the quality of your roast chicken dinner — mama’s boys have a habit of comparing everything you do to the way his mom does it for him.
He won’t necessarily mean it in a horrible way and he probably won’t even realize he’s doing it. But his mom is the template for the way everything should be done. She’s spent her whole life making him happy and comfortable, and he’ll want you to make him feel the same way.
