Would you find it strange if mother/daughter spend a lot of time together?

What would you think if you saw a childless single woman in her 20's always out with her mum - i'm talking every other day?

nina2b Sun 28-May-17 19:42:58

A bit odd.

user1490817986 Sun 28-May-17 19:43:36

Also going on holiday together every year

Aridane Sun 28-May-17 19:44:05

I would think it lovely blush

I'd assume one or the other was the carer

Writerwannabe83 Sun 28-May-17 19:44:30

That she and her mom have a great relationship?

I'm married with a child (and pregnant) and would probably see my mom that often too if she lived closer.

Not sure what being single and childless has got to do with anything?

Are you the mother or daughter in this scenario? Or just a confused bystander?

I'd keep my nose out...

Maybe they just get on. I don't know, I wouldn't really think anything. They obviously enjoy each other's company. Have either of them got other friends?

I have a friend like that. It's a co-dependant relationship. Bad divorce, on the mum's part. Childhood damage with the daughter.

Frankie89 Sun 28-May-17 19:45:01

I doubt I'd even notice. And if I did I'd junk it was nice they had a close relationship. Is this you OP?

Frankie89 Sun 28-May-17 19:45:18

Junk was meant to be think....

I'd wonder why they didn't have a job?! But if it's just they're spending lots of time together after work/on holiday then I'd probably think it was nice.

pinkhorse Sun 28-May-17 19:45:44

I would think they both had trouble making friendships of their own. It's a bit odd

VaccineWife Sun 28-May-17 19:45:59

I do think it's a bit weird when people describe their mums as their best friends.

I have no wish to be my daughter's best friend. I'm her parent and we're close but a best friend relationship is something different imo.

Mammylamb Sun 28-May-17 19:46:07

I wouldn't be bothered either way. None of my business. But even when married I still went on holiday every year with my mum. Nothing wrong with it

Lapinlapin Sun 28-May-17 19:46:13

I'd think it was nice.

Obviously it's good if they both have other friends too, but a close relationship with your mum is lovely.

Frouby Sun 28-May-17 19:46:21

I have an aunt/cousin like this. In fact worse. They live together, socialise and holiday together. It's a very very odd relationship and my couain who is early 30s has never had a relationship.

I feel her mother has done a great deal of harm to her dd.

Mamabear14 Sun 28-May-17 19:46:38

I'm in my 30's and normally meet my 80 odd year old nan if I'm going to town, she brought me up practically so is like my mum I guess. It's nice to get her out and she loves my DD. Wouldn't even cross my mind to think about it.

user1487854472 Sun 28-May-17 19:47:24

I am extremely close to my mum, see her at least once daily and really enjoy her company. She's simply my best friend. I sometimes worry what others think, but she is the only person I'd trust with my life.

Herewegogo Sun 28-May-17 19:47:40

I see my mum between 2 and 4 times a week, with my daughter. Never really thought it was odd. We go for coffee or out with her other grandchildren.

PurpleMinionMummy Sun 28-May-17 19:51:17

No, why would it be strange?

MrsJayy Sun 28-May-17 19:51:18

I spend a lot of time with my dds they still live here they have work/college friends go out but we sometimes go to cinema for meals together, we are notbest friends though I don't think it is that odd

kookiecookie3 Sun 28-May-17 19:51:53

I saw my mum every day, even after work she would call round to a cup of tea or I would go to hers. Once I had kids that didn't change, we would always go out for the day or spend at one of ours house.
Sadly I lost her 6 months ago. Would give anything to spend that time with her again.

bloomandwilde Sun 28-May-17 19:52:42

I think in some cases it's friendship and closeness and in others it probably veers to co-dependency.

The young woman works, presumably?

I'd think, nice. (Jealous!)
