Hello Oedipus!

August 3, 2000

Hello Oedipus! Signs your partner is with you because you remind him of his mother
  • When you do something domestic (cook dinner, his washing, nurse him back to health), he doesn’t thank you.
  • You and his mother could share clothes.
  • When someone criticises you in front of him, he gets teary-eyed and calls you “a saint”.
  • He buys you the same perfume his mother wears.
  • He calls you “mum” by mistake. More than once.
  • When you tell him off he does what he’s told.
