At what age do girls get serious about dating and relationships?

I've dated a few girls, of all them being between ages 15-18. Im now 18 and i was just curious as to what age do girls genrally get serious about romantic relationships and know what they want? My friends and family tell me im a little weird for wanting something so serious at such a young age but i just dont seem to be like everyone else at my age. I dont feel the need to "date around" or sleep with a bunch of random people. I just dont have time for games, and i want something more... stable. More permanent. I want it to mean something. Is that so weird these days?

  • Don't rely on age they deceive you. Women are just women and girls are girls. If they were never mature before, they rarely mature later in life. I have always been mature for my age and have even been called wise beyond my years since a child. That has always been me. But when I see myself with other women, I feel like I'm the only real adult in the room until I meet a like minded person. If a girl wants a serious relationship you will know by her actions not just by her words. She proves it to you. Many are taught to 'play the field' early and it's sad. But that is how a lot want to do it. So unless you find somebody who values relationships like you do, you may take a long while.

  • Well it depends on the girl, like a girl that is in her later teens year that has never had a boyfriend would know what she wants & it obvious bc any guy that has asked her out didn't meet her expectations, thus her never having a boyfriend while there is the girl that has been with various types of guys & she has no clue what she wants so she's experimenting, it all comes down to the girl

  • Depends on their maturity level for one thing. Some girls start thinking about serious relationships their sophomore year of high school, some not till college (that's not maturity that's preference i guess) some girls though aren't ready to commit and just want to fuck around and have some "fun" which I think is stupid but, to each their own. I started getting serious around my junior year of high school. Sophomore year I was curious about finding who I might be ok with when thinking about a long lasting relationship, and junior year is when I really started to like the idea of a serious relationship.

  • There is no set age for that. It depends on what she wants to do with her life. If she chooses college first she may not consider doing more than dating (if that) because the course work is demanding of her time. She may also want to go to college far away. If she wants to wait and just work or do something else, men and marriage are more likely to not be off the table. However she may enjoy being casual for a time. It's really up to her.

  • I was always serious about dating growing up. Now I'm twenty-one, and I have never been so uninterested in dating in my life till now. It's not that I'm not dating, I'm just not taking it seriously. When I was younger, I wanted the perfect fairytale Disney romance. Now, I'm more interested in other aspects of my life. I'll probably be serious again once I get my degree and a job.

  • I wish there we're more men like you! No it isn't too weird these days, at least not for girls. Most women want a stable relationship as well. Compared to guys, women tend to sleep around less. In my personal opinion, a women would be delighted to discover your true intentions concerning your relationship with her.

  • A lot of girls are already looking for a serious relationship when they're still in high school. There are usually more girls than guys who want a serious relationship.

  • I didn't start talking to boys until I was 16. But when I didn't actually get into a real relationship until I was 18. Mostly because boys didn't really lie me. But I wanted to start dating around 15.

  • I know exactly how you feel, I'm 17 and I could easily settle down with someone now, although I do feel like it is more difficult to find people who want to get more serious at a young age because it has become such a "cool" thing to sleep with as many people as possible (which I don't understand) and people just tend to be afraid of commitment. Although it does seem like there are quite a few people who want to get serious about relationships at a young age they just have to be found :)

  • that is not weird at all! that's a wonderful trait. I myself am the same way. it's a wonderful trait because you are already thinking about the future whether you realize it or not. you are looking for a life partner. All girls are different, some don't want something serious while others will look for that life partner. it takes time, yes, but you will find that person don't worry.

  • Some girls are ready for a serious relationship at a young age, and some aren't. You have to find the ones who are.

  • 16/17 ... It all depends.. I dont really think there is a age because most girls always want it to be serious because girls shouldn't be wanting to go around sleepen with everybody.. But it all depend on the mindset of that girl and her level of maturity.

  • Every girl is different, you could get girls who are 17 and want a committed relationship, and others who are 40 and still don't want to settle down.

  • I've been serious about it since I was 15, but it wasn't until about 18 or 19 when I figured out what I really want, what will work with my life, what is compatible for me, etc.

What Guys Said 3

  • Probably late 20s, (27, 28, 29), and in their 30s. Usually they will panic once they reach 33, 34 because of the whole "biological clock" thing, but that's only if they actually even wanted kids at all in the very first place, otherwise they won't really care at all about that. 30s and 40s, but those usually are either single moms, had previous breakups and relationships or even previous marriages and divorced.
