    Ignore her. When she starts on you about it walk into the next room, or act as if you can't hear her. She'll eventually stop when she knows you don't care about listening to her opinion anymore.
    I do, well I try to, I say, "look I don't want to discuss this again!" but when she makes a comment I can't help but fight my corner!

    I just hate the fact I feel my own mother is just WAITING for my relationship to break down

    Sorry I haven't completely read the thread so I might repeat something but to me it sounds like she's just jealous that she's going to lose you to your boyfriend, and that you're growing up and you're not her 'little girl' any more.
    She's just attention seeking by saying what she is :p: it can't be nice though, I don't envy you

    But when is she going to get over that?? She's making me miserable! I just hate the HORRIBLE snide voice she uses, "Oh you're obviously worried he's going to dump you.." I can't understand why she can't accept it. I think she doesn't think he's good enough for me either, not cos he's a low life haha but she makes comments about how "he could be a bit taller"...he's 5'10! not exactly a midget! I'm only 5'5!

    No idea when she's going to get over it, I'd imagine she's the only one with any idea.
    Have you asked her why she has such a problem with him?
    Very few mothers think their daughters' boyfriends are ever good enough for them, it's the way a lot of them are really.
    And again I'd put it down to the jealousy thing, the fact that the boyfriend is taking the daughter away, or at least they see it like that.
    Maybe point out to your mum that with the way she's behaving at the moment to try and push your boyfriend out of the picture, the more likely it is that you'll grow apart from her because she's being so immature and unreasonable. If she actually accepted your relationship it's likely you'd be a lot closer to her which I imagine is what she wants. So she's just cutting her nose off to spite her face, so to speak. I don't know, if she's anything like my mum she won't accept your analysis of the situation but it's the best you can do really.
    Quite simply just argue it from your side and say she's behaving in a really selfish way.
