At some point in a relationship, is it natural for women to try to 'mother' their guy? My girl and I have an issue with this. And like most guys, I hate it. I'm sure there are some guys out there that like it, but I don't. Guys don't want to have sex with their mother. My girl and I have had numerous discussions about this. Her reasoning is that it's my fault. "If you acted like a man, I wouldn't try to mother you." Not quoted from her, but that's the idea. I think that's BS and that's just the way she is. I think it has to do with how she was raised. Her mother was with a lot of different guys while she was growing up. Married 4 times-- 4th being last month. And I see how her mother treats her current husband. Her mom is 44, husband is 31 (a year older than me). She treats him like she's his mother. Whether my girlfriend realizes it or not, she was raised seeing her mother treat guys like that, so she picked it up. What's your opinion on this?
