It's nice to see a guy showing respect towards his parents, however, sometimes a very close mother-son relationship can affect your relationship. If you want to know how to tell if a guy is a mama's boy, take a look at our list.

His Mother Is His Confidant

Dating momma's boys can be very hard especially because his mom will tend to interfere in your relationship, being overprotective. Does your boyfriend run away to his mother every time you two fight and seeks for comfort? If your answer is yes, then your boyfriend is a mama's boy. These guys tend to consider their mothers their confidants and they'll complain about your behavior every time you two have an argument, so watch out.

He's Always Reminding You of Her

Among the most obvious signs he's a momma's boy is the constant reminder of her. Every time you're cooking or ironing, he'd remember that his mother would do things differently. And of course, better than you. Repeating these things over and over again will eventually make you mad, so we'd suggest explaining to your partner that you are not his mother.

Mama Does It Better

He's Still Living With Mom

You've been dating him for quite a while, but he still lives with his mother and he doesn't plan moving out soon. So, how to deal with a mama's boy boyfriend? Here's what to do when dating a mama's boy: try to explain that you'd like to move in together to get to know each other better. Of course, he can still visit his mother every time he feels the need, but if he wants your relationship to work out, he should take into account your needs and wishes, as well.

Constant Comparison Between the Two of You

If you're still not sure what are the signs you're dating a mama's boy, then you should ask yourself this: Does he compare me to his mother? After carefully thinking about it, it strikes you! He's always telling you that his mother is a more talented cook than you. He should love you for who you are and not because you're his mother's younger version.

Comparing Girlfriend To Mom

He Calls Her Daily

It's great that he's calling his mother, but if he does this daily, this is clearly one of the greatest signs he's a momma's boy. Normally, boys aren't the attached ones, girls are. So, how to deal with a mama's boy boyfriend? You should suggest your boyfriend to discuss more with you and call his mother less often.
