You think you've met The One. There's just one problem - he tends to overshare details of your relationship with that one other person vying for his attention.

Yes, that's right, he loves his mother, but does he love her a little too much?

“The mother can be so critical in any of her son’s relationships, it can make or break all involved,” Richard Pawlowski, author of New Power of American Women and Bogus Beauty, told Askmen.com

“Much, too, depends on whether or not the mom is divorced (has she been hurt herself?), if a dad was near during the young years, and so many other things. It’s a constant contest of different questions, without any real answers, [and] always subject to change with age.”
