What will you do if her/his mother doesn't adore you?

I have a friend that her mother's girl friend doesn't like him at all. He told me that she doesnt like him because she wants someone who is rich and good looking. Not the type of a guy he is. Though he has a stable job and he is smart too. But it doesnt give him the assurance that the mother of her girlfriend will like him. Do you guys/gals experience such things like this?

Well this only happened to me in my present. Well his mom likes me as a person but did not like me for her son hehe because of the cultural differences and all that shinanigans. But she is fine with me now. I haven't got the chance to really bond with her yet. But in order to make her think positively of me I think it is also up to me to make some efforts to show my true good self to her too. Also no matter what your in laws think of you, you should never forget to respect them.

thanks for the reply. Just try and try until such time that they will like you that you are not what they think. Think positive.

I find I avoid people like what you have described. I don't care for people who stand in judgement of others without taking the time to get to know them. It is not fair. And if the third party is going to be around for a long time, it just makes for a stressful situation between the primary parties. Been there, done that and not going to do it again.

i tottally agree with you on that , i cant stand mothers that forever thinks that theyre daughters derserves better , and forever downs the stand up guy in their relationship , to me i think that mothers like that are absolutely bitter withn themselves and need some love of their own ...and they can have a busban too who is up to their standards and everything but that still doesnt make it perfect ...

I have no experience like this, lucky for me. But here is just an advice for your friend. Just dont mind the mother, its not her that he would live. Instead of thinking about her mother just tell him to focus more on two of theme besides if the girl really like theme what could the mother do? nothing. They should not get affected otherwise that maybe ruin there relationship. Good luck to your friend. Happy Myloting
