I dated a mama’s boy, Croatian one as well but for only 6 months and we lived in the same town.  I don’t have much advice except that I had to end it because he would NEVER do anything unless it was okay with his mum.  Same thing, unmotviated, had no ambition, could never get organized or do things on his own.  He thought everything his parents said was right and I had to listen to it and he wouldn’t listen to me. 

He has used to have girls messaging him all the time.  He never cheated (confirmed by his friends) but I was told he told his friends he liked the attention, like he was insecure in himself and need it to feel good.  Needless to say I couldn’t handle the mama’s boy thing and I left him… 3 years later guess what!? I ran into his friend and apparently this guy still only listens to his mummy, still isnt working, still lives at home, and basically lives a sad life. 

my point? Stay away from mama’s boys.  they will cause you nothing but a headache.

He sounds incredibly immature. I wouldn’t start planning anything if I were you. Why wouldn’t he want t o introduce you to his friends and why would he get embarrassed that you were being sweet at the airport? You deserve a man who appreciates the things you do for him. Go with your gut on the email in his phone, that sounds like a lame excuse to me.

 ” I’m also sad because I feel like I am the driving force for our relationship….after I coerced a proposal out of him, it has been almost 6 months later and we haven’t done anything”

 This is because he isn’t even close to being ready. You said it yourself you coerced the proposal and you shouldn’t have to do that after 9 years. IMO If he were the right guy things wouldn’t be this way.

In the least offensive way possible I think you need to reread what you wrote up there. I don’t think the issue is that he is a “mama’s boy.” It seems that he is immature, doesn’t want a committment and has abused your flexibility to be a completely benchside player in this game. You sound like you want some very, very, different things in a partner and your future. It’s time for you to take care of yourself instead of someone who isn’t interested in trying to meet you halfway.
