I was tickled pink reading reporter, Alexis Stevens’ article on a recent survey about momma’s boys. Not shocked at all to see that the south is a breeding ground (no pun, intended) for them. Honestly, I’ve always believed that not unlike spoiled princesses, men who are a little spoiled by their mums get a bad rap.
It’s sort of a mixed message out there for single men: hate your mother? You’re heartless and hate all women. Call your mother on the phone every week? You are a Momma’s boy who still has some growing up to do. Which is it!? I’m sorry but it’s kind of silly to assume that a man who has a great relationship with his mother is somehow weak. It’s possible to be close to your mother and still have appropriate boundaries.
Ladies, in my experience, when you find a man who is close to his mother and treats her with love and respect, you have a keeper! Who do you think taught him how to interact with you beyond whistling at your short skirts?
Do you think men who are close to their mothers get a bad rap? What do you think is the reason so many “momma’s boys” are in the south?
Guys, if you are close with your mother, do you think this has been an asset or a liability in dating women?
What is the best advice your mother taught you?
Happy Mother’s Day to all the fabulous women who mother and nurture any child. You are all fabulous!
