Do mothers ALWAYS act so mean & jealous towards their son's girlfriends?!
My boyfriend & I are both 20 years old, we have been together for a year and a half.
His mom claims that she likes me a lot, but when it comes to her son she acts very mean towards me sometimes.
Here are some examples of her behavior:
-She complains that we spend "too much time together"
-She gets upset when he wants to hang out with me instead of her
-She makes fun of me because I cannot cook- sure I can make basic things like eggs, grilled cheese, pancakes, stuff like that. But I cannot cook an extravagant meal or anything and she makes some not so nice comments about it.
-She is very overweight (200 pounds) and I am very thin (115 pounds) She has had the nerve to ask me if I have an EATING DISORDER! I take offense to that bc I try to eat healthy & I work out 4 times a week. I think she is secretly jealous.
-When my boyfriend says sweet, nice things to me she is annoyed by this and complains about it. I believe her reason for this is she is jealous that we have a good relationship, bc she has had 2 very bad, abusive marriages and hasn't dated in years.
-One day, right in front of me she said to my boyfriend, "all you care about is yourself and your girlfriend. no one else"
I simply don't understand why she is like this, she has told me multiple times that she likes me..but I have also heard that mothers tend to get jealous when their sons grow up and have a new women in their life. Is this true?
What can I do??
