Gals, could you date a guy if you didn't like his mother?

Hubby's mother and I get along very well, so it was never an issue, but I dated a guy once for almost a year and his mother despised me for some odd reason. I use to dread anything with his family, it wasn't the only reason we broke up, but it was one of them.

I dated a guy, the oldest of five boys, and his mother despised me! It didn't last long, not just because of his mother, but it was as much a relief to get away from her as to get him out of my life when it ended.

It would depend on how far away she lived.

It depends on how she dosnt like me. Does she not like me and stay away not making it my problem?
Does she nag him about it constantly? Does she do stupid things to make my life hell?

Its the little things, however in general id like for his mother to like me, I dont like things to be awkward.

Yes I could. It is all about the man I love. I'd do it for him.

My first boyfriend's mother was so wonderful that I missed her more than my bf when we broke up. Actually his whole family made me feel like I belonged and that was hard to lose. It would be hard to date a guy if I didn't like his mother but I would do it. I first thought that you meant if the mother didn't like me, based on latter replies. That would be different. I would be very uncomfortable at family gatherings if she disliked me. I could keep my bad feelings to myself if I didn't like her. Therein, lies the difference.

I married him. She did not like me nor did it appear she like many others in the family either. Is he man enough to pick his woman over his mother? If not I would suggest you run and run fast. If his going to be Mama's Boy the sooner you recognize the fact the better!

No ha ha that was easy. My ex mother-in law was a complete and utter nightmare. This woman was a pain in my tushi until I said 4yrs ago I've had enough; you must start behaving like a proper 70 yr old woman and speak to me civily. We, I mean she tried but she just couldn't be nice infront of me, so after several put downs and telling me how I should live my life I decided I wouldn't see her again. So I cut her out of my life and it's the best thing I've ever done.
I still get my family not my ex's family saying to me, you should get back in touch with her. But I know my own mind and that be like going back to hell. There is no way!

My wife hates my mother, and I didn't care for hers ... we had a great reason for not going to the In-Laws because of it clown

Yes, I definitely could... provided the mother is not living with him/us.

I can tolerate anyone I don't like for short periods of time...

For me is nothing to like or dislike. I respect elder people, but do I have to like his mother, no, and why would I dislike he - have no reason, no one is perfect. I would not live with his parents or live close by so they can walk to my house, but sundays lunches are fine with me, considering that he is not mama's boy. But then again I would never date mama's boy.

I'm lucky that I adore my man's parents. If I didn't like his mom I would still date him. I mean, our relationship isn't about her anyways, you know?

My mother-in-law (who is now dead) hated me because she blamed me for breaking up hubby's first marriage. The fact that they were divorced before he met me was irrelevant. I was the younger "Loilita" who stole her son. The woman was an evil witch. cussing
