Months or even years into a relationship you might find that you have become the very person you never wanted to be. “That person” can vary depending on you and the situation, but the repercussions of being whoever it is you vowed to never become can significantly impact your relationship.
An example of such, and a fairly obvious one, is “the mother.” How often have you found yourself acting as the mother of the person you are dating or the person you are married to? Whether it is your boyfriend or husband neither tends to be too keen on being treated as your child. The difference is your husband is more likely to stick it out than a boyfriend or someone you are simply dating.
When it comes to dating, as described by Clutch Magazine the image of a mother often appears as such:
You have a nurturer’s spirit, and it’s beautiful. You cook. You clean. You’re loving and attentive. And he always comes around … for dinner … and then leaves. He won’t commit to you because you’re more like a friend. And besides, you remind him of his mom or auntie! And why date you when you’re willing to cook him elaborate meals without him ever having to put out, take you on a date or commit to you? Yup, he says. Things are fun just as they are.
Does that describe you or the person you’re in a relationship with? To find out four other people you don’t want to be when it comes to relationships and dating visit Clutch Magazine.
