what does it means when a guy let you meet his mom?
I have to say something that will scare a lot of women but the fact that you have been introduced to your date or boyfriends parents is not always an indicator of how much he is into you or the potential of the relationship. Why do I say this? Ladies, just because a man introduces you to his parent s does not mean that the relationship is serious. Take the boyf for example. Now as it was, I knew he was serious about me but it was only after I met her and a few months after the event, that he told me that quite a few girlfriends had met his mother.
Now the reason he told me this is we were having one of our many debates about relationships which is normally sparked by this site and he nearly pissed himself laughing when I revealed how some women nearly lose their mind preparing for meeting the parents!
We also have a nasty habit of projecting our own ideas about why we would be doing something instead of looking at the individual and the situation.
But there is also ego and self image to take into consideration and for the assclowns out there, introducing you to their parents is there way of keeping them off their back and conveying messages like. As women, we place far too much importance on things that are only right in certain contexts. Has he proposed? Has a marriage materialised? Trust me, I know people who have dined off comments like this from people like friends and family with no concrete relationship or commitment materialising!
My new book How to Lose an Assclown in 90 Days is due out next week but if you want to get ahead on understanding waste of space men, there is also my ebook, Mr Unavailable and the Fallback Girl. Find out more and download. Natalie, So true. My ex-assclown had included me in all his family gatheringss for the two years we were together. One time, his parents anniversary, I suggested we make dinner for them. This turned into me doing the entire meal all by myself including wine, and driving all the food over to their home.
My ex-EUM brother was there that night too. Neither one of them helped cook,helped buy, or helped pay for the groceries. This scene played out over and over again. During the christmas holidays, I bought gifts for the entire family, his kids, his nieces, you name it. He had two kids. I was super close to his 12 yr old daughter. When he had the kids on friday nights, he regularly dropped her with me and she would stay overnight.
None of this meant a thing to him or his folks, other than his daughter. He broke up with me a few weeks after the holidays last year and I never saw him or heard from him again.
It was all meaningless to him. Wendy PS Thanks for getting the site up again!!!! Instead of spending time with his daughter, he brought her to your house??
What a great Daddy!! He used you as the babysitter, what did he do on these Friday nights?? This is a great post! I think it applies to all signs that we look for. Plenty of assclowns have invited me out on weekends for example. It really depends on the family.
My family is closed so when my sister brought he ex husband to be over.. In other familes, bringing someone home might not be so meaningful. I really miss that girl too. She is the only part of that relationship I still miss. It was such a relief for me. I felt strong. Plus I did such a good job of it. Its the template for breaking up with someone and not hurting them too much. I know she knew but covered for him quite well. Oh thats interesting. He brought his clothes over there regularly to wash.
He ate there once or twice a week. His parents brought a birthday cake into his work he is a high school teacher and sang HB to him, which I always thought any normal 50 yr old would find mortifying.
He called his mom Mammie and his father Da-Da….. When the 4th of July came one summer, he had to ask their permission for me to stand next to them to watch the town parade.
Oh stop me, I could go on and on….. Almost, right on sister. Its pathetic. Do you want to know what my eum did? After we broke up last winter, which was about ten days after my mom died, he sent me an e-mail. His mom had been in the hospital for 48 hours. He documented her stay in the hospital for me, in detail, and shared how upsetting it was for him.
Or acknowledge. At all. What an assclown. So glad he is history. Great post NML! I think you have to think about the sum of all the parts in a relationship. As you said, taking it in context. We tend to take one thing he said or one event and put way too much stock in it rather than looking at it as a whole. I met and loved his family, and they loved me, in their EU way four children, 35 to 50 years old, zero marriages and zero children amongst them, do you think I should have noticed that?
I know they are going to miss me, and Thanksgiving is going to be rough for me. Day six of NC. My EUM lives in a very Catholic country where family is important and divorce not allowed! When she met me, a couple of months into our relationship, she burst into tears — I tried not to take it personally and he told me that she was upset as she realised that he was not going to get back with his wife.
Later she decided she liked me and that I should learn the language so that she could talk to me. Unfortunately we split up and she died shortly after.
I look at this from a slightly different angle I met his mum once but I got no indication of what their relationship was like because of the setting of the meeting.. Many many months later he told me his mum wanted to meet me again and spend time with me.. My first thought was well thats not going to happen in some ways I think this spelled the beginning of the end.. I made this mistake with a relationship. He went out of his way to introduce me to his friends all over the country and travel to meet mine and I read SO much into that.
Lesson learned. I wanted to post my story here…I request anyone who can to plaese help me out with their advice if possible. There is this guy I met at my last work place. We hit it off right from he first meeting. I thought we had a lot in common.. However I did not get more than opportunities to meet him and that for very brief periods..
Though i had his contact number i did not feel like calling him in the first couple of months…he did not have my contact details.. My husband and i live in two different cities now..
Coming back to my friend.. Even after he told me all this my feelings for him remained the same…the fact that he is gay did not stop me from being attracted to him.. I am sorry you are going through such a difficult time. Furthermore, what you describe with him does not really sound like much of a friendship. More of a not very pleasant escape from an unhappy marriage.
Take the time you need to do that and then worry about relationships with other men. Really, be kind to yourself and take time. You might get more of a response if you post it in a more relevant spot.
Take much care, Wendy. I wanted to let all of you know that I finally had a breakthrough. Then, magically, the blinders came off and I saw him for the toad he is. He is a user, and always will be. It was amazing how quickly he was ready to stop talking when I put my foot down and told him I would no longer continue this charade.
For some couples, it can be weeks or months before they put any kind of label on their relationship. Or that window where you clarify that things are now serious somehow came and went, and things just feel awkward. Specifically, he made a point to bring you along to meet his friends. This is very different from him messaging you at 1 a. No guy who wants to keep things casual is going to take you out with a bunch of other couples.
But any of them are good indicators that your relationship has staying power—or that he has no intention of ever committing to you. You have daytime plans. He seems genuinely interested in what you are saying. He is obviously happy to be in your company.

Millennials those ages 22 to 37 in bring their dates home to meet mom and dad after 10 or more dates, or a little more than two months into the relationship on average, according to new data from dating app Hinge. Breaking the ice and introducing a love interest to friends and family is never easy, but here is some advice on how, when and where to do it.
