Girls 'don't want a mummy's boy'Posted on: March 12, 2013 11:49:11
Men can be forgiven for letting their mum know just how much they love them from time to time, particularly with us celebrating Mother's Day last weekend, but is being a mummy's boy an attractive quality, or do females find it an undateable trait?
According to a recent survey, as many as 41 per cent of women admitted they would steer clear of a man they suspected to be one.
While most blokes imagine their closeness with their mum is a great way of proving to a potential new partner that they care about women, in reality, it appears to do the very opposite.
In fact, only eight per cent of women see it this way, with nearly a third in the Love to Learn study viewing mummy's boy traits as 'nice but a little bit sad'.
So, just why do women have such an issue with suspected mummy's boys?
Well, for starters it could be the fact that the woman in question would have to accept the fact that they're unlikely to be the most important lady in their life, as that place is already taken by mummy dearest.
Not only that, but if things did progress and the pair embarked on a relationship, many could be concerned that their partner will have done little housework or chores when living at home, leaving it all in the capable hands of their mum.
According to the survey, which spoke to 1,000 men and women, half of the respondents admitted to being mummy's boys.
Those in Northern Ireland were most likely to admit it, with a whopping 82 per cent of guys claiming they were, while men in the south-east of England were least likely.
Men with senior managerial jobs were most likely to define themselves as one than any other type of worker.
Richard Innes, from men's magazine Zoo, said being close to a parent is nothing to be ashamed of.
"We've all had moments when we've felt our mum is the only person we can turn to. If a girlfriend doesn't like that, it says more about them than you," he added.
A mummy's boy is considered to be a man who runs every life decision past his mum, who sides with her over everyone else, and is someone who allows her to do all of his chores, the adult learning company found.
