Today, my mother met my sister's boyfriend for the first time. As we talked about it later over dinner she said she didn't like him. When I asked why, she paused for a second and said, "Well, he really reminds me of you." FML

Well your mother is dandy isn't she? Well 'like mother, like daughter' should've been the reply.

Maybe she is just weirded out that your sister would go for someone so similar to another family member?

Is this some epic form of pseudo-incest?

More like "motherly-hatred" !

#1, the only thing epic about this is the level of assholery shown by OP's mom. To be honest its kind of a sad first comment and not too astray from being really weird, dafuq do you read/watch... :/

no level of “pseudo-incest" is epic. epic is a good thing. don't drag epic into this!

#1 - what an unflattering juxtaposition.

To be honest, I can't even remember why I wrote that comment. I was half asleep at the time and in my twisted state must have thought it was funny. Now it's just gross.

A few days ago my mom and I were teasing each other and she jokingly called me a brat. I then laughingly said, "It takes one to make one!" We do enjoy a good laugh together. I'm very thankful that I have always had a great relationship with my mom and dad.

... Ok, #10? Not to sound disapproving of any good maternal relationship, but what was the point of that comment? Are you trying to very subtly imply that you think that OP's mom was just having a friendly repartee? If so, I think the OP would have known and not considered it an FML. If not, your comment is kind of random.

21 - My comments was not really meant to be applied to this situation. It was more of a response to #2's comment. He said, "Like mother, like daughter.", which made me think of the story I told in which I made a comment similar, "It takes one to make one.", meaning almost the same thing as like mother like daughter. But thinking about it now, it does seen pretty random, lol. I do apologize for the randomness.

#27, don't apologise to some stranger on FML for randomness, if FML is one thing it is definitely random as hell, share your stories if you want the first one was pretty endearing ;)

Thank you for your kind words, I do appreciate them :)

Sounds like you have been slacking.

I don't see how that could have been anything short of an insult, which rather makes your mom kind of a jerk.

Maybe she meant in in a sense that she was creeped out by the similarity, not that she dislike the OP.

Agreed it could just be the thought of her daughter dating someone just like her sister would be a bit unsettling and she's not comfortable with it and miscommunicated how she felt

That's terrible! I really am sorry, but I must admit, it was so shocking that I laughed a little. O.O

Maybe she is just weirded out that your sister would go for someone so similar to another family member?

I would think she doesn't like him being similar to you because she finds it weird that her daughter could be attracted to someone looking like her brother.

It could mean she's not comfortable dating someone who gives off a sibling vibe, instead of "even though I'm related to you, I don't like you".
