receive a lot of negative for being a "mama's boys or even just a basic close relationship with their mothers?
I mean, I know that some mama's boys are very dependant (not all of them) and occassionally embarrassing if they're too close but daddy's girls are no better either.
I mean it's great to date a woman who respects her father and have a positive relationship with him but Ireally don't wanna have to deal with a pain in the ass overbearing father along with my gf not doing anything about her father disrespecting me so I don't see why having close relationship with your parents (especially of the opposite gender) should be only exclusive to you women when it comes to love relationships.
I sure as hell would NEVER tolerate a woman in a relationship, who shows nothing but disrespect to me and my mom.

That's actually a good question. But it all depends upon ones own definition of "mamas boy/girl or daddy's girl/boy) it's wonderful to be close with your parents, you only get 2 of them. But just like any relationship, it must be a healthy one. For instance, I don't mind a guy being close with his parents as long as he doesn't depend on them for every little thing or say, consults them/involves them in things that he should be handling on his own. I think it should be the same way for girls. However the reason why there's a double standard is because girls tend to be looked at as though they need protection and guidance where as guys are expected to move out early, hold down a job, and be a "man". (Not saying I agree, just explaining how it is.) Now I've always been close with both my parents and I always will be. But I'm also an independent person and I don't need them to hold my hand in situations that I should be handling myself. So in conclusion: Girls should not get a "pass" for being dependent on their parents anymore than guys should. A close relationship with your parents should be encouraged as long as it is healthy. And you can't really generalize by gender because it varies from person to person if you're going to be dependent or independent. It also has a lot to do with how you were raised.2
