MAFS Dan: Why his mum doesn’t like Tamara

"She is only looking out for me"

It looks like Tamara hasn’t won over her in-laws just yet. In Tuesday’s episode of Married At First Sight, her reality TV ‘husband,’ Dan introduced the brunette to the women in his family, warning his wife that his mother is a tough judge of character.

“She is only looking out for me,” he says. “I’ve dated in the past before where my mum and my girlfriend didn’t see eye to eye but that never stopped me from seeing the person! I always go with my own opinion no matter what.”

However, the single dad did admit it’s harder to be in a relationship without his mum’s approval, and that she wants him to fall in love “the old fashion way — head over heels.”

Speaking to 9Honey, Dan has admitted his connection with Tamara isn’t strong enough yet – and she’s in danger of being put into the friend zone.

“I tried to see past that and every day since I’ve pushed myself to get close to her to see if that changes how I feel,” he admits.

“I think having attraction from the get go is very important in a relationship,” says the car broker. “But in saying that some of the best relationships are built on friendship first.”
