This is how the stereotype goes: a daddy’s girl and a mama’s boy.
Boys have been known to favour their mothers over their girlfriends/wives much to the agony of the latter. While loving your mother is one thing, being a mama’s boy is totally another. The former is what the girls adore; the latter is what they hate. So are you a mama’s boy? Read on to know if you are.
1. You still call your mama ‘mommy’
What do you call your mother? What you call her can tell if you are a mama’s boy or not. All boys address their mothers as ma or mummy, anything more affectionate than that and you are entering the mama’s boy territory. Mommy is what 5 year olds call their mother. If you being in your 20s or 30s still call her that, then we suppose there is no escaping the truth.
2. Roshesh from your ‘Sarabhai Vs. Sarabhai’ is your favourite TV son
No, we are not joking here. If you think that Roshesh is the perfect son and his relationship with his mother is what every mother-son relationship should be then you are definitely a mama’s boy.
3. You run to her every time you encounter problems
Imagine this scenario: you are in trouble. You are in deep trouble and you have no idea how you are going to tackle it. So, you immediately run to your mother for you know she will bail you out.
If you have been in similar situations, then you are a mama’s boy. A grown up man will tackle his problems by himself. He will consult his friends, spend considerable time thinking how he can resolve the conflict and not tell his mother what the trouble is unless it is extremely imperative to do so. A mama’s boy will do the exact opposite.
4. Between wife and mother, you always choose mother.
Choosing between his wife and mother is every man’s nightmare. No man wants to be put in this position, and if put in one, he wants to find a diplomatic way out. However, for a mama’s boy such a situation poses no problem. He will always take his mother’s side no matter who is right/wrong or what the situation is. If you find yourself taking your mother’s side every single time, you should be assured of the truth that you are a mama’s boy.
If you have lived through any or all of the above situations, then you are a chronic mama’s boy. It is up to you to decide if this mummy obsession is healthy or not. And then accordingly deal with it. (Special Features, MensXP.com)
