It may seem like an exaggerated statement, but it’s true – you really can tell a lot from how a man treats his mother. The way that he behaves around her and the relationship that they have together can show you a lot. It reveals if he’ll be kind, impatient, loving, or just plain awful.
The best piece of advice to anyone starting a new relationship is to watch how your man treats his mother – it will show you how he’ll treat you.
His First Female Connection
In almost every case, a man’s mother is the first relationship that he has with a woman. This is where he’ll learn not only how to behave towards women in general, but also their worth and how much respect they deserve. It will become the basis for every female connection that he makes thereafter.
If he forms the right habits and manners as a child, he’s likely to carry them into adulthood. On the other hand, if he never really learns to treat his mother well, he’s likely to carry that with him too.
If They Weren’t That Close
Sure, he doesn’t dislike his mother, but he isn’t that close to her either. Growing up, he wasn’t able to form a strong bond with her. This can cause a man to have difficulty establishing close relationships.
A guy with this background will likely know how to respect a woman but will be easily intimidated by her. When things start to get serious, he’ll have a hard time with it. He’s likely to run away or create problems to break up the relationship out of fear.
If He Dislikes Her
Either his mother mistreated him when he was growing up or he was a difficult child that was terrible to her. Whichever it is, he doesn’t like his mother. He had a difficult time forming any kind of positive relationship with her.
Having a bad relationship with their mothers from an early age can cause men to view women as the enemy. They’ll often disrespect the women that they end up with later in life and treat them horribly. They never learned the worth that a woman has.
If They Had a Good Relationship
It’s not all doom and gloom, quite a lot of men have wonderful relationships with their mothers. This kind of man grew up being very close to her. In later life, he still treats her well and often goes out of his way to spend time with her or do nice things for her.
If you end up being with this kind of guy, you’re in luck. He’ll treat you like a queen as he’s learned how to behave around women. It will be a happy, healthy relationship full of love and mutual respect.
It’s important to keep a close eye on how your man treats his mother and how their relationship has turned out. Young boys learn as they grow and form habits that can last a lifetime. If he has learned how to sustain a loving relationship, then he’s one to keep. If not, stay away.
