When Your Guy’s Mother REALLY Hates You
You’ve done absolutely nothing wrong. You do whatever his mom wants you to do. You’ve even bought her gifts. Still, she hates you.
While your guy may tell you to ignore her, it’s just not that easy to do when you know she wishes that her son would break up with you. You’ve tried everything you can think of to have a great relationship with her. Nothing’s worked. His mom is now affecting your relationship. So, what should you do?
Attack number 1: Have a meeting with her
Call her to ask if she is willing to meet up with you for a coffee or lunch. Having your meeting in a public place makes it more likely that the discussion won’t get too heated to the point of screaming at each other.
At the meeting, you can ask her how you can make her son happier. A mother only wants to see her son happy, and if you show her that you are trying hard to do that, you’ll win some points.
If she tells you that you would make her son happy by breaking up with him, ask her how that would make him happy. As she lists her reasons, ask her if it’s possible for her son to have those same benefits without breaking up with him. You could even suggest ways you could improve what she believes is so wrong with the relationship.
Attack number 2: Include her
Many mothers become jealous of their sons’ girlfriends because they are used to have them all to themselves. To help your boyfriend’s mother realize she hasn’t lost her son forever, invite her to join you and your boyfriend in some of the activities you do together. Try Inviting her out to a movie she would enjoy, ask her to come to the park, or out to dinner with her.
