The typical Momma’s Boy is raised by a single mother ( I am a single mother; my son is 8 ) so I have to be very careful not to raise my son to be emotionally dependent on me. That’s the problem with this guy; his emotional house is filled by his unhealthy emotional dependency on his mother.
The Momma’s Boy has a boyish charm about him; he seems to love women and he has insider information about women because his mother didn’t set healthy emotional boundaries about her own internal emotional life.. she put her son in the emotional position that she would of a lover. It’s sad but true for both of them; that neither of them will have healthy relationships with the opposite sex unless they become awakened towards their unhealthy patterns of emotional dependency… When the son finds a mate; the relationship ends up being another flash in the pan.. it quickly dies because his girlfriend cannot make a deep intimate connection with him..because his mother has taken up that place in his heart.. but the same goes for the mother.. she is too involved emotionally in her son’s life..so when she finds a man; when he attempts to set the boundaries; she sees him as a threat to her son and so the relationship ends quickly.. sometimes with great negative intensity.
I was in a relationship with a Momma’s Boy when I was 18; he was 22.. his mother would say things like ” Does she have to know what we are talking about?” ” Why is she always here?”.. she would come to his house and clean..do his laundry.. fold it.. bring him his favorite food.. etc.. etc.. but she herself couldn’t hold onto a relationship with a grown man..as they got sick of her meddling shit. Over time he did detach somewhat from his mother..but his dependency of his mother soon moved him to his dependency on the bottle.. I watched him drink beer like he was sucking on a breast.. I left him..
How do you know he is a Momma’s Boy before you get too emotionally attached to him?
He usually hasn’t had any long term relationships.. a 2 year relationship is a long term relationship for him
He lives in his glory days.. he is always talking about when he was kid; what his momma taught him
His mom is always cleaning his house and cooking for him
He needs his mother’s advice all the time
His ex girlfriends warn you
He has secret ex girlfriends because he didn’t want his mother to know about the BAD girls
He is selfish, self absorbed and egotistical ( a little brat )
Is so irresponsible emotionally he can’t even take care of pet on his own
Doesn’t want to be a father because he likes his SON or boyishness status
He is in his 30 and 40s and still dresses like teenager and acts like one.. he is so cool ya know!
He is so hip and cool all the time.. even in his online communications..it’s all hip slang
What can you do about it? Nothing.. nope just move on..go and find yourself a gown ass man!
Momma has ruined her boy.. he will be in his 60s and she in her 80s.. and she will be at the grocery store buying his favorite jam..because he likes Smuckers ya know!
