Today, my boyfriend broke up with me because he wasn't feeling our two-month relationship was up to par with his parents' 30-year marriage, and, furthermore, I wasn't similar enough to his mother. FML

And so another victim of the Opedipus complex.. Sounds like you lucked out OP, your now ex would probably have had standards very hard to live up to down the road.

Sorry OP, but like people always say: men marry women like their mothers and women marry men like their fathers.

And so another victim of the Opedipus complex.. Sounds like you lucked out OP, your now ex would probably have had standards very hard to live up to down the road.

but didn't he kill his father and mindlessly marry his mom?

Yeah, it's pretty messed up, but an Oedipus Complex is just a boy being attached to his mother like OP's now ex-boyfriend.

He's an idiot. Don't look back.

Why is he? It was 2 months, he felt like the relationship wasn't working with her so ended it before there was severe attachment, if anything it was the best thing he could have done. A lot of other guys would have just kept their mouth shut and ended up cheating on the them at the 6month to a year mark causing far more hurt than what happened here

#9 > He is an idiot because you don't try to emulate other people's relationships, it's a recipe for disappointment, especially if one is 2 month and the other is 30 year old. How could both even compare? Honestly, I think OP dodged a bullet, because it's one thing to admire your mother and another thing to want to date someone similar.

He's an idiot because he can't realize that it takes time to get up to that 30 year status and shouldn't expect it to happen in 2 months time..and the fact that he's looking for someone similar to his mom.

The weird thing is, most men DO marry people similar to their mother, but not usually this... Consciously

Sorry OP, but like people always say: men marry women like their mothers and women marry men like their fathers.

Lol as far as personality, yes. but if looks are involved all bets are off ;)

I'm betting that's not the case the majority of the time.

If that's the case, it looks like I won't be getting married. Get it? :) *exits silently*

Wow, then Princess Leia has terrible taste.

43- Are you serious, Anakin's a straight savage

leia would probably go for guys more like her adoptive father and not Anikin anyway because its probably more of the man who acted as the persons father not the biological father

Sometimes things aren't meant to be. Things will get better... For you.

wtf? is he into incest? what's that about?

What are you talking about? Op is stating that her ex wants someone that has a similar personality to his mother, that's it...

No he just wants someone to fix his food, wash and fold his clothes, pay his bills and always tell him he is right. Also not have to wait longer than 2 months for it.

Where did you get incest from?

When you start college, make sure to take an intro to psych class.

Just google Oedipus.

#18 where did you get that notion from? Males prefer women similar to their moms and vice versa for females.

I've known some people more in love with one another that only knew each other for a few days than relationships of several years. Time is not always on indicative of emotion. Definitely an excuse.

I was with my ex for a year and a half. And apparently when he got a new girlfriend after me they got engaged after a week.

I'm pretty sure that's the thrill of novelty and infatuation. just because you have great chemistry with a person and hit it off great doesn't mean you're compatible living partners.

#7 Even if you do fall in love straight away, you can't build the kind of relationship people have after 30 years in just two months. It's completely unrealistic to expect that as OP's now ex was.

Similar enough to his mother in personality or appearance? Either way, best stay away from Oedipus-esque lovers.

forget about guys like that. he isnt worth it.

Oedipus called and he wants his complex back

It's better for the relationship to have ended now then if you might have liked him much more into the future. But what I'm wondering is how did he expect 2 months to be on par with 30 years of marriage?
