Most of the time we associate momma’s boy with being too attached to their mother’s which causes them to have trouble interacting with women for the rest of their lives…But…According to a new book called, "The Mama's Boy Myth", they actually turn out to be better adjusted men. The author of the book, Kate Stone Lombardi, interviews over 1,100 mothers along with their sons and discovered that the men had better mental health. They were able to discuss their feelings openly, didn’t give into peer pressure and are much more patient when it comes to having relations with their significant other. Plus, they were better at communicating and they seemed to suffer less from depression.
Even in a new survey done by men's fashion Website style pilot revealed that 66% of men regularly wear something that their wife or girlfriend picked out. There’s also a new TV show called, “Momma’s Boys of the Bronx.” It’s all about guys that still live in their parent’s home while in their thirties. On the show, they reveal one guy interrupting a business meeting so he can answer his mother’s phone call!
Do you know a momma’s boy? Tell us about him!
I know a few guys that love their mom’s a lot, but I wouldn’t necessarily go out of my way to call them momma’s boys. The closest momma’s boy I know would be my friend’s boyfriend. He loves his mom so much that my friend’s kind of taken on that role. She pretty much bought his entire wardrobe and makes sure before he leaves the house that his outfit is perfection. It’s crazy! I don’t know if I can agree with this myth book though…He’s not a crier and I would associate that with wearing your emotions on your sleeve.
