Here, I'll start: I know that as soon as I tell my Mother about a guy I'm seeing, he will inevitably break up with me. I'm not kidding: As soon as his name leaves my lips and enter's my Mother's ear canal, he will do something mean or dumb or stupid and our relationship will deflate quicker than a punctured beach ball.
It's gotten to the point where I consider giving her fake names of the guys I see because I know if she hears his real name, we will be jinxed as a couple forever. I've tested this theory out a few times and I swear, saying his name out loud in front of the woman who gave me life is a guaranteed relationship doomer. Now, I will wait until the last possible second to tell her his name. I'll mumble it or say it softly because I know once I vibrate those airwaves, the curse is activated. It's like Beetlejuice or something!
It's a double bummer because once she knows his name, she'll ask for updates about our budding romance. I'll squirm in my seat as I tell her about how he blew me off, freaked out on me, and/or disappeared off the face of the planet. So, I've come to the conclusion that telling my mother about any man I want to date is the ultimate jinx.
