Dating men with overbearing mothers
A boy growing up watches how his dad treats his mom and then usually emulates the behavior.
If a kid's dad is loving, kind and respectful to his wife, the boy will see this, and hopefully follow suit.
The specific circumstances for Ted, Jerry, and Jake were different, but in each case, these men had spent the early years of their lives denying their own needs, wants, and desires in an effort to meet those of the most important woman in their lives." Again, there are exceptions, but for the most part I believe this statement to be true.When I was in my 20s, I went on a date with a man who spoke very negatively about his mom.Jake's mother struggled with depression throughout his years at home.He learned at an early age that he should put aside his needs and wants so that he could tend to those of his mother.
