Three with his mother. Going on a holiday together sounds like a great idea for couples. However, it’s never happening. Not to mention the trip, planning it is already terrible.

He acts highly dependently on his mother he feels like he doesn’t know what he needs. For that reason, he involves his mother in every business.

  1. The Never Ending Stop By

If you are married with him or start living together, prepare yourself to the endless stop by from his mom. You’d be staying somewhere near her home so she can make a visit anytime. She might have her own key too so she can drop by without prior notification. Say goodbye to a romantic cooking scene just with the two of you.

  1. He is Always Sided with Her

This is probably the worst you must face. His mother thinks it’s okay to always meddle in your business that she doesn’t hesitate to get involved.

  1. The Mama Issue is Unfixable

Don’t think you can get rid of this terrible syndrome. His high dependency to his mother is something incurable no matter how hard you have tried. There is no way you can fix it. He stays like that all the time.

  1. He Wants Everything His Way

A mama’s boy is a mama’s boy for a good reason: his mother spoiled him. She never say no to everything he said and have it his way. He grew up in this situation and it’s how he behave in a relationship. He doesn’t want to compromise. He wants it his way.

Despite all those things, a mama’s boy could be a very good person. You may date him if you don’t mind to share his love with his mother. But a woman can’t share love with anyone, even his own mama. You are the one in control of your life, so make sure that you don’t do anything you don’t want to do.
