    Try chatting to her? Have you been together long and is this a recent development?

    I think you have to confront her (un-aggressively) and directly ask her "why" - for your OWN peace of mind. Good luck.

    I say ask your boyfriend to speak to her but not as to hide the fact that it has been discussed between the to of you...and then if necessary un-aggressively confront...

    i think your best bet is to get your boyfriend to just casually drop your name into a conversation with his mum and then he can say so what do you think of her etc etc. if its only changed suddenly then its unlikly you'vr done something worng perhaps she's feeling a bit down and it seems like she's taking it out on you? if all else fails confront her. honestly is the best poilcy,

    ....but I think your BF probably does have at least an idea of why she doesnt like you and just doesnt want to tell you and hurt your feelings, or mess up things between the two of you. Try talking to him again

    Lol, some mums are just difficult. One didn't like me because I 'depended too much on my parents' or something equally stupid. I was 15 and unlikely to be moving out and getting a job.

    Mothers are impossible, because unless you're lucky enough to get a nice, sensible one who realises that you are only human and won't always say or do the right thing... then they're looking for faults.

    Spenceman's suggestion was good... make *sure* your boyfriend knows you're going to ask. Just say something like, "(insert name here), I get the feeling that I may have done something to upset you recently and maybe we haven't been getting along as well. Is there anything I can do to make up for it?"

    Basically... grovelling in disguise. Don't give her any reason to get angrier. By dealing with it in a mature and honest way, you may find that she'll actually gain some respect for you.

    Ignore his Mum - she will talk to you and treat you politely in time

    Is it really important that she likes you, he wants to go out with you, therefore she has to accept you. You can't change her, like she can't change you
