The 10 Types Of Emotional Cripples
The Mama's Boy
The Woman He Wants Pushing His Emotional Wheelchair: Someone who is exactly like his mother or exactly the opposite, depending on the nature of the dysfunction. If his mom was coddling and overprotective, he may want you to change his diaper and wipe his nose. If his mother abandoned him, he may be looking for a clingy lady. If his mother expected him to be "the man of the family," he may be looking for a woman who is helpless and needs taking care of. You get the picture.
His Wheelchair Needs: To realize that you are NOT his mother. And more importantly, to understand the relationship dynamics with his mother. If he has crap to work out with her, he needs to do it before he invites another woman into his life.
