Healthy: The son WANTS to see his mother, and if she happens to call and ask to get together when he already has plans -- say a date, he tells her he will instead meet her for breakfast the next morning.
When he meets her, he might bring her flowers or just give her a huge hug and say, "Mom, I know you already know this, but I really really love you a lot." 2.
I know this because I have an ex-husband, a dad, a brother and a son.
There is nothing more attractive to a woman than a man who adores his mom, treats her well, treats her with respect and goes out of his way to help her.
Sure, it might be hard, and your feelings might get a little hurt at times, but that NORMAL!
The last thing I will say is something I always tell women.
Maybe the guy's dad treated his mom like crap and the guy feels like he needs to pick up the slack. Obligation Versus Choice: Unhealthy: The son always feels obligated to see his mom and put her first in front of his plans.

But he should do that because he WANTS to do that, not because the mom expects it.No mom is perfect, but men should do the best they can to try to have the best relationship they possibly can with their mom, AND to facilitate the best relationship between their mom and their girlfriend or wife.
