    Mama's boy or what?

    I met this very nice, polite guy who wants to take me on a first date with his mother. My dad says this doesn’t sound right. He says down the road there will be some really heart-wrenching trouble. Is he seeing this correctly?

    Yes this could spell trouble in a variety of ways. Being a “mama’s boy” is the least of it.

    There’s a good chance he has VERY little dating experience and is already imagining marrying you.
    Most men don’t bring just any woman around their “inner circle” unless they’re getting serious with her.
    Generally speaking this is after they’ve gone out on several dates and have had sex.

    Going out with someone and their mother or father could also be a cultural thing in some nationalities.
    If that is the case you’re probably also dealing with someone who is highly religious.
    Some people are raised to please their parents as a sign of showing their respect.

    Having said that it doesn’t exactly sound like you’re head over hills excited going out with him.
    “I met this very nice, polite guy,…” Sounds like the only word you left out was BORING!

    One could also argue that maybe YOU are a “daddy’s girl”!
    Not many grown women discuss their (prospective dates) with their father.
    The two of you may be right for each other!

    I wouldn’t think negatively of this guy for wanting to bring his mom but if this makes you uncomfortable it doesn’t sound worth it
    There are plenty of nice, polite guys who don’t need to bring their mother on a first date
    I would steer clear of this whole situation
    It’s not necessarily that he’s boring or you’re a “daddy’s girl” like dashing scorpion is saying. There is nothing wrong with asking your parents opinion, plenty of people do that. But few people want to bring a parent on a date

    It depends on how old he is, and of course WHY he’s doing it. It could be a shyness thing, like he gets nervous and wants other people there to take the pressure off one-on-one interaction. But, if that’s the case, he should make it a group thing with friends, not his mother. Maybe he doesn’t have friends?

    Not sure what the age is, but if this guy is over 15, then something is a bit off. But honestly that doesn’t have to be the case and you could give him a chance if you like him. BTW, there is nothing inherently wrong with a mama’s boy either. What matters in the end is how he treats you and if he otherwise fits into what you want with a boyfriend. There are many a mama’s boys who turn out to be great husbands who know how to take care of the women in their lives. That being said, if this guy is someone who fits what you want, you could give him one chance and see how it goes.
