Don't Date A Man Who's Still Attached To His Mom's Tit

Here are nine reasons to never date a momma's boy.


Men come in many different forms, but the worst ones are the grown men who are still attached to their momma and can't do anything for themselves.

1. You'll be the handyman in the relationship

Unfortunately, when you date a momma's boy, they never had to do anything. So be prepared to be the one to fix everything that is broken, changing the oil in the cars and calling the plumber when things get way out of your depth. Because your boyfriend doesn't even know where the toolbox is kept.

2. Nurse edition: mommy vs. girlfriend

When he's sick, all hell breaks loose. He cries, can't do anything, and won't go to work. Or you here "My mommy did this, can you do that too, it'll make me feel better." And when you try to do it as he wants, he turns around and says "That's not how mommy did it!" Okay boy, slow your role, I'm not your mom, I'm the girl who lets you touch her boobs. Blow your nose and take some NyQuil.

3. Who's the better lover, momma or girlfriend?

When your significant other is attached to his mother's backside it can interfere with several things. One of them being your sex life. She will call late at night in the middle of a really good time, just to say "You didn't come to give me hugs and kisses today, do you not love me anymore?" Like really lady, here I am, in a very intimate position of your "beloved baby" and your curious on if he still loves you? I think I win this round.

4. Guilt trip on the highway

Everyone wants to try to help out their family, that's what family is for. But, when you are needing a bit of help, maybe some extra hands to move into a new house, and your boyfriend's family can't do it, there should be no hard feelings. Everyone has a life, it's understandable. That's when you call up your best friend, move everything in and open a bottle of wine when you are done.

BUT, when mamma bear calls, in the middle of date night, after you've already told her what you are doing, and asks for a favor things get testy. Especially when you, as a couple, say no. You will hear about that for the next month. "I can't believe you wouldn't help your mom out. I gave birth to you. I feed you and sheltered you. Is that girl really more important than one small favor I needed?" For real, you wanna go there lady, because I will call a war.

5. Playing house but not in the sexy way

Listen, when a man grows up and doesn't have to do any chores, there becomes this war in the house. You want to have help cleaning house. Maybe take turns doing dishes and folding laundry. But low and behold your man doesn't know how to work the vacuum cleaner. Even when you have asked thousands of times not to have his mommy come over and clean your house, somehow she ends up with a broom in her hand. And you just know she is folding your sexy underwear and violating your privacy, no matter how many times you've asked her not to. And to make matters worse she'll ask her precious son if he has clothes or if his laundry needs to be done. Bitch, what do you think I do? Do you really think I just let it pile up and turn into mountains like you let your son do when he was growing up? Thank you, next.

6. That's not how mom did it

We have all heard it, weather in the movies or in real life, "That's not how mom did it" or "You sound just like my mom." But let me tell you, this is so true! I could be cooking dinner and he will say, "Mom made it with this" or "mom did it this way." I always have to count to ten and hold my breath, because this just irritates me. I am so glad, your mom cooks spaghetti with green onions, but I do not. And last I checked it was me and you in this relationship, not me, you and your mom. So no, I will not put green onions in my spaghetti.

And for the love of god, do not say, "you are just like mom" or "You remind me of her." This is not okay to say! I promise you, your mother does not do the kinds of this I do to you, so please check yourself, before you wreck yourself.

7. You don't just marry him, you marry his family, too

Ladies listen up to what I have to say. When he pops the question and you say yes, just remember what life was like when you were dating. Just because you take his last name and start your own family does not mean she stops being an overbearing momma-bear. Now, she is your mother-in-law, invading your personal space, wanting to know about your menstrual cycle and when you will give her a grandbaby. To make matters worse, she still comes into your house and touches your delicates, she still acts like you are the worst thing to ever happen to her son, and will never look you in the eye because honestly, she knows when she makes eye contact you will jump her.

8. You'll never be good enough

Monster mother-in-law is always going to have something to say. Whether it be about the food you cook, the candles you burn in your home, or the laundry detergent and toilet paper you purchase. No matter what changes you make and the distances you go, you will never be good enough for her precious baby. Everything will always be wrong.

Girls, there are two very important things I need you to remember. The first thing is, never change yourself for a man no matter how much you think you love them. If you have to change and they don't there is a problem. And secondly, the most important one, you can not divorce your in-laws.

The Truth About Dating A Girl With An Anxiety Disorder

She knows how annoying she can be, but she just prays you love her regardless of her flaws.


Anxiety: A nervous disorder characterized by a state of excessive uneasiness and apprehension, typically with compulsive behavior or panic attacks.

The definition makes it sound really daunting. Truthfully, there is no one way to describe generalized anxiety disorder if you have it. It is hard to live with, hard to cope with and unfortunately, really hard to date with.

Girls with anxiety are different than the average girl when it comes to relationships. That's just an honest statement, no matter how much it hurts me to say it.

We need the constant reminder that you love us, even though we know in our hearts that you do. We panic when you don't answer your phone, in fear that we did something wrong. We care about your feelings when you say that we don't need to worry and we need to be a little calmer. But it's so damn hard.

It isn't easy to love someone who worries about everything 24/7. Half the time, we know we shouldn't be doing the things we do. We know we shouldn't blow up your phone or ask just one more time if you are mad at us. But we can't help it. It says it right in the definition: compulsive behavior due to excessive uneasiness.

Being with a girl with anxiety is probably downright exhausting. It's exhausting for us to have our minds constantly running and worrying. But I promise it's worth it.

We come to you with everything because you are the one person who always knows how to make us feel better. When we are happy, you are the one person we want to be happy with. We all know the constant reassurance, reminders and the same old arguments get old. It gets old to us too.

There was never a time I wanted to have a panic attack because my boyfriend wasn't answering his phone. In my head, I knew where he was because he was usually in the same three places. I knew he wasn't mad at me because I didn't do anything to make him upset. I knew how busy he was with his classes and he was probably studying and I needed to give him space. But the little voice in my head always argued, "What if you did something wrong? What if he's ignoring you because he's angry? What if he's seen your messages and calls, but no longer wants to be with you?" And then I give in. I call, I text, I cry, I panic. Only to feel even worse 10, 30 or 50 minutes later because you answer angrily, telling me what I already knew after I did what I knew I shouldn't have done.

Having anxiety is almost like having a drug addiction. You know all the things that trigger you. You know all the ways to stay away from the bad places in your mind so you don't end up relapsing. But you do anyway and it hurts worse every single time.

Dating a girl with anxiety is as hard as it gets, but she will love you like no other. She is so incredibly thankful for all the things you put up with to be with her. Because she is worried about being loved, she goes the extra mile to always remind you how much you are loved. She always asks if you are ok because she cares about the answer and knows what it's like not to be ok.

The truth is that dating anybody with anxiety is difficult, but it isn't impossible. You get back everything you put in, even though you may not realize it. Trust me, she is sorry for being the annoying, crying, worried, naggy mess and it embarrasses her because she knows better and she wants to be better for you. But please love her. Hold her, understand her, listen to her, calm her, be there for her. In your heart, you know she would turn around and do all the same things for you in a heartbeat.

To The Ex-Best Friend Who Made Everything A Competition, I'm Done Playing Your Game

And I'm doing OK without you.


Dear Best Friend,

We were inseparable, attached at the hip, and I always thought that you would be in my life for forever. We did everything together: ate the worst food possible, watched the newest crappy Netflix film, cried over the boy that constantly broke our hearts, and laughed at the things that made us seem the most stupid. I loved you like a sister, and I would do anything for you, but everything started to change quickly, and it didn't make sense for me to stay.

As close as we were, things started to become a competition: who could be the happiest? Who could be the best in school? Who could find the "one" first? Even now, I sit and question why we thought that these things were supposed to strengthen our friendship when they only destroyed it. I felt like I had entered a toxic relationship, trapped in the constant annoyance that I felt in your presence, and I hate that I felt this way. But, here's the thing, you were so wrapped up in your own life and making yourself happy that you had totally forgotten that I had a life of my own. I wanted to be successful, too. I wanted to have a shoulder to cry on when I was hurt, too. I wanted to have my best friend on my side, too. But I didn't have the luxury that you did; you were my best friend, but I wasn't yours.

After months of just being there at your disposal, I finally learned what life would be like without having my best friend around, and that really sucked, if I'm being honest. Every time you called, I was there. Every time he broke your heart, I was there. Every time you needed to cry, I was there. I was behind you every step of the way, that even when my day was horrible, I made sure to answer when you called. But, when I needed you, the conversation was spun into your mandala of life, and my problems were thrust outside the lines. I was tired of being taken advantage of.

After all the ignored advice given, I finally gave up. I couldn't sit back and watch you ruin your life over a guy that obviously didn't care about your well-being or our friendship. I watched our friendship turn from something once great, something I couldn't live without, into something toxic and something I wanted no part of.

Because I knew that I had lost you a long time ago, I've spent a lot of time thinking about how I could live a happier life without you in it. I wanted to make sure that the days of being in this crazy competition were over for me, and that I could look back on this last year and know that, no matter what, I was the winner of my own happiness. And I look at you, and I truly feel sorry for you because you've spent so much time trying to give someone else your happiness. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I'm sorry that this happened. I'm sorry we grew apart. I'm sorry I wasn't able to be the friend that you needed. I'm sorry that I won't be the girl who hides behind one of her friends. I'm sorry that I have my own life, one that I'm proud of.

I'm glad we had laughs that we did. I'm glad we cried together. I'm glad that we have the amazing memories that we do.

You were my best friend, and I'll always be there for you. Just remember why I left.

With love,

Your Ex-Best Friend
