Dear Roe, 

I am a successful woman and a year ago I met a lovely man, who was my first love. We hit it off quickly, and I asked for the “girlfriend status” a week after we met. To my surprise he said yes, and things progressed great. I was now hoping they would have progressed further by meeting his mam, but he kept postponing. I asked about it every now and then, but didn’t think much of it until he broke up with me yesterday.
