Are women less mature in this generation? and if so why?

My girlfriend is 30 and I've noticed that for that age she seems a tad immature. She cares more about smoking weed, drinking going out. Instagram, snapchat selfies etc. She hangs out and talks to her 19 year old cousin too, they've gotten piercings together and all of that. Is this common amongst women of this age? or is it just her? and if so is this a new trend? I'm 26 and have already grown out of this lifestyle, am I wrong fro thinking she should be more mature?

  • I'm 21. I feel like and I've been told I am waaayyy above my age level. So I feel like I am mature enough I wasn't brought up rich or fancy I chose to be this way. We all have a choice here in America and I chose to be above your average Jane. Now some women just don't see life that way, their philosophy of adult hood is either different or just chose to have a life style like that. Bring it up talk it out see how it goes if she doesn't feel like she doesn't fit your life needs then dumb her find someone else who got it together

  • Its very common amoung unmarried 30 year old career women to act this way I see it all the time. They might have an impressive career and make good money but that doesn't make them a good catch. Take one of my ex's who's now 33 she is still living the same partygirl lifestyle as when she was 18 at college, she works as a lawyer at her Dad's firm, live with her parents, spends all her money on crap, has no savings, cannot handle basic lifeskill tasks, can't cook, won't clean and sleeps around (not when we were together). Basically though I cared for her I had to break up with her as she had no ambitions and was just not marriage material. Its nice having someone to wake up with and to have sex with for a while but you got to ask yourself do we want the same things. If I were you I'd dump her and move on. Im currently married to a beautiful 24 year old who has her head screwed on.

  • It seems like your girlfriend has a young spirit, there's nothing inherently wrong with that. Label it as immature if you will, but your girlfriend's actions don't equate to all women.

  • I tend to find it's guys who are immature for their age but you do see the odd immature woman. I tend to date much older than I am, so guys 35-45 and they've never found me immature. I tend to find girls mature much more than a quickly than boys (that's why I won't date guys my own age) but there are always exceptions.

  • I think its perfectly normal for men and women to be a tad immature. No, sometimes the men are just as bad. Lol. Im sure we can all be serious when required but we all have an inner child in us and we tend to be a little goofy and immature at times, which can be fun.

  • I have a female freind that is 26 but she acts like a highschooler. When I'm out with my female freinds I just want to call her a girl because she does not act mature enough to be a woman. This might have been due to her focusing only on school until she was 20. She has everything job degree some money saved. But she is just so imature and she loves playing social games.

  • Yes, and the reason for this is the lack of criticism, and the "it's my life, I do what I want, so don't you dare judge me".
    They're right, they can do whatever they want, but with a lack of criticism, you can't improve. If no one tells you to grow the fuck up, and do something with your life, you'll keep thinking that doing drugs and partying on Tuesdays is ok.

  • Her case sounds uncommon and more like an individual thing. But I believe that people in general of this generation tend to be less mature. It is because college has pretty much delayed adulthood yet again, and many students still expect to be treated like children.

  • It's common, but it's not something specific to this generation.

    Women have always had less responsibility than men to carry, so they've always had the privilege of a more carefree life. The only change is that feminism has clued us in on what women's potential, so now we just expect more from them.

  • she's missed something growing up and she's overcompensating. Maybe she didn't party in her teens and regrets it. Either way she is immature. Right enough its usually the boring bastards with the stick up their arses that moan about growing up and beijg mature. Smacks of jealousy.

  • i wouldn't say immiture but i belive that some women in the western world are being taut to be selfentitled for certian things or situations they have not even worked towards or hard to get.

    when instead the person should be based on merit and hard work

    but thsi just my view :P

  • Women are kinda fucked in this generation. My honest opinion is use them for sex and that's about it. Girls used to be nice before but now anything you say or do is a crime. Feminism destroyed the lovely caring amazing women of the past, its a pity that men did not treat them well in the past and women changed into monsters.

    I mean look at society today, everything is down the drain. I've been with many girls and tried to be good and respectable, in the end, they are immature little schoolgirls. They literally destroyed the distinction between men and women
