Have you ever met a man that isn’t a family man because of his messed up mother?

I can’t belive I have met three. I’m messed up or are all those mothers really a mess? And is there something about me that is drawn to these men or is it just very common for men to have weird moms?
Yeah I’ve noticed that pattern. Even I’m messed up in some ways bc of my mother but I’ve come a long way to change myself

Yes, I have. We are drawn to what we know. It feels comfortable and safe for a while.

[@10109,SweetMae] but my father and mother were wonderful and amazing, how can I be drawn to what I know?

[@8567,OldMatron] It was just a general statement. I don't know your specific situation.
Everyone is messed up. It's the degree of it that you're talking about. I'm sure there are a lot of them. I don't hang around long enough when I see too much unevenness in someone's behavior. I'd rather be alone, and make the choice of a booty call when needed.

Study every serial rapist or killer who targets women. They all had a whacked out mother who punished them for just being a boy or tried to raise them as a girl with girl clothes, hair etc.

[@824678,SniperMk1Mod0] should I be worried about your user name in this instance?
[@8567,OldMatron] you have no concerns.
Uh. Every time I look in the mirror. Fortunately despite her special brand of cruelty I'm pretty well adjusted.

[@350408,Themarvelousme] how do you know that you’re well adjusted? Now that I think of it, a couple of the women I know are also in relationship with men who had weird moms.

They're called psychiatrists... 🤔

[@597698,wildbill83] hmmm
At least they’ve chosen a decent path in life, or so I hope. :-(

[@8567,OldMatron] many are more screwed up than their patients/had troubled childhoods; hence the reason they became shrinks...

to try to figure out why....
