Mommy issues

For Mother's Day, I planned to write an elaborate column about the link between a guy's relationship with his mother and the success of his/her romantic relationships. The whole issue was pretty riveting.

Before I knew it, I composed an entire essay on the issue. A little too deep for standard nightlife column fare.

So it joined the many items in my "submit to Elle magazine" file. Sigh.

Anyway, now there's this post on Nerve pointing to research suggesting that a guy's relationship with his mom affects his behavior in situations beyond family matters. Interesting.

In dating, do you pay attention to how a guy treats his mom? Is that a factor in your relationship outlook?
