Top 10 Signs a Guy is a Mothercon


Japanese women have indicated that they are particularly reluctant to date men with a “mother complex” – a mother’s boy. The below ranking indicates how they intend to spot one.

The “mother complex” (abbreviated “mazacon”) term may be a Japanese invention, but the concept it identifies is familiar internationally as a “mother’s boy” – an adult man who is overly attached to or preoccupied with his mother, a common source of concern to female partners.

The signs:

1. He’s always messaging his mother

2. He’s always bragging about his mother

3. He’s always talking about his mother

4. He always compares the food he cooks unfavourably to his mother’s cooking

5. He prioritises the opinions of his mother over those of his lover or wife

6. His clothes were bought for him by his mother

7. If he has any problems, he immediately goes to his mother for advice

8. He’s always getting calls from his mother

9. His underwear was bought for him by his mother

10. He’ll only date women his mother approves of

    Still, he's insanely popular among girls, so a mazacon must be at least acceptable.

    Sounds like Japanese women are way to freaking insecure.

    The list is indeed a mamma's boy list with the exception of

    4. He always compares the food he cooks unfavourably to his mother’s cooking.

    Get over it ladies, they were feed from birth (breast) till their teens by mom, and likely through their teens at home by a mother's cooking.

    All their habits and tastes will be largely dominated by what they experienced growing up. Unless their mother was a lousy bitch of a mother that is.

    Not everyone has a great mother.
    But some do.

    And the day your man say's it tastes better than their mother's is the day you have just been told the equal of you're hot, or smart, or any other form of milestone achievement that can be considered the greatest level of accomplishment.

    My wife took several years of practice before beating my mom at making meatloaf, and now I usually share the meal only grudgingly. It's easier to get me to share chocolate :)

    Than you're ignoring two pretty important sections actually.

    The feet and the lower back (and no I don't mean the ass, actually the lower back). Women often are "locked up" in those areas.

    And massaging those gets them to unwind and relax.

    Learned how to massage from my mom, and the ladies I've been with, who've needed those skills, were quite pleased with them.

    Sure I've added some things of my own as well over the years, but that's only if I want the massage to turn up the heat a bit. Usually, it's more of a... "You look beat.. Here, I'll help you relax a bit. Feel better? Now just stay put, I'll get dinner ready." situation, and that's just something that leads to more heat down the road.

    1 and 8 seem to be mostly the same thing to me. I guess according to this list I'm a mama's boy. I message or call my mom at least once a day and I ask her for advice on most matters because it always seems like good advice.

    Yeah, some people might find it hard to tell people never to call, let alone forbid their parents from calling. It's not like you wouldn't have any control over it but I deem it depends more on the mom. Especially if the other nine points check negative.

    Father issues, Mother issues.

    Meh. As long as it's not to the point it annoys someone else, it doesn't matter terribly. Though some of those in the list makes it sound like a person who goes on and on about it.

    Rather a mama's boy than someone who can't even properly get along with their own kind or have extra baggage that way too.

    I don't mothercon is a person who wants to get his way with his mother.

    I think "mothercon" is a person who gives all his attention towards his mother etc, just look at the signs and it should be pretty clear.

    What is wrong with Japanese women?

    4. He always compares the food he cooks unfavourably to his mother’s cooking

    They cook for them, and try to improve their cooking skills for them by comparing it to the food his parents made (most of the times the mother, in my case it would be my father) since they are most likely the ones who taught him how to cook in the first place and she's annoyed by that?????

    I wonder why they always make it look like cooking is hard in mangas/anime.

    Its the same stereotype like the protagonists always catching colds because they got wet in the rain. ^^

    There's much less ero action after cooking though :(

    "4. He always compares the food he cooks unfavourably to his mother’s cooking"

    I lol'd a bit when I noticed it said "he". It's a positive when HE cooks. Then again, with Japanese women the way they are, I guess she cooking isn't even a possibility.

    It's what people do anyway actually.

    Women often end up marrying guys who resemble their old man. Men often end up marrying women who resemble their mother. (Research has been done into it, can't find the article that quickly though)

    And then there's this:

    Then you're a MILF! Seriously, how long have you been using the Net?!

    I guess I'm lucky since my mom ain't hot( doesn't mean I don't love her as a mother. Or maybe it won't matter if my mom's hot because I'd still not think of her higher than blood-relationship?). I mean, I like dem cougars, lol. Unfortunately, most matured women also prefer mature-looking kids. They'd be like, "That guy's so mature for his age! KYAAAAA!!!".
