  • this is controversial, but guys and girls mature in different mental and physical areas than the other for example:
    -guys desire the opposite gender earlier than girls.
    -guys have the ability to have common sense over simple obvious things than girls
    -girls tend to focus on school or other certain things better than guys
    -girls tend to easily judge certain things in negative ways and guys dont (like masturbation for one example)
    -guys are more open to sex than girls
    -girls mature physically faster than guys

    • Had to scroll a lot for this...

      It depends a lot on the type of person they are... there is childishness in both genders

    • @mikemx55 Yeah, that's true. But I used to notice this more when I was younger, actually. From 12yo to 15yo I remember there were some guys really childish and immature. Now, the guys I know are usually more mature.

    • Considering how girls keep on falling for abusers and players and how they keep on going back just to be abused and cheated on, or how more often then not, girls are loosing their virginity at 13 aware of the risks, on drugs, going to clubs, getting pregnant, dropping out of school, etc. point is that I think that the study on a girls emotional maturity is inconclusive.

    • @Sabretooth that doesn't necessarily mean that they aren't mature. it really doesn't. it may speak to naivete. it may speak to the fact that by the numbers men are more likely to be abusers.

      the simple fact is science shows unequivocally that women mature both mentally and physically sooner than man... it's nothing to be defensive about for me we catch up soon after, women just start sooner

  • Yes they do. They have growth spurts before the boys, they grow boobs before the boys start looking like men. They even develop crushes at a younger age.

  • I voted A although in my experience with women your age they tend to mature these days at a slower rate then boys. I think the media has a lot to do with it as does social media as well.

  • Only at certain ages.

    0 through 6 guys mature faster. After that, girls pass them by slowly
    and seem more mature around 10 through 15, after which it's about the same level of maturity.

  • If by "mature" you mean die mentally then sure. There's this saying of how most people die at the age of 25 and isn't buried till they are 75.
    From what I've seen girls die mentally way earlier. They stop having fun , stop being adventurous and start compromising for security.
    Guys stay young MUCH longer.

  • its why younger girls go after the older guys, the ones there age are still in that eat sex sleep stage and girls see that as pointless crap at there age way before a guy does lol.

    if you people want this to change you younger guys have to step your game up and stop acting like girls are things you toss to the side till your bored and need something to do. but i doubt you guys will lol.

    • Older does not equal maturity

    • Show All
    • It's the fault of the older generation. Without any positive male role model in a girls life, all she'll have to guide her are hormones and fairytales. Granted they may have God (if they are taught) even if the father is around and being a good role model, he spoils her, and let's her have her way with every thing. All those issues makes these issues inevitable.

    • @Sabretooth thats true i won't argue that point.

  • Only in the physical aspect. In my experience, guys have mentally matured faster.

  • From what i know anybody who 'matures' quicker just doesn't know or forgot how to have a laugh and enjoy themselves. Its always the boring bastards going on about growing up. I think its jealousy. Boys just know how to have fun better than girls for the most part

  • I think they have pressure to be ladylike and in a way that translates to maturity so they seem more mature even though they aren't.

  • Until a girl and a boy hits 20 i think girls definitely have the upper hand on maturity. After its the other way around. I know women my age that still behave as if they are 20.

  • Girls mature faster physically and intellectually. Their mental and emotional maturity doesn't always apply.
    They can be so intelligent, and they can reach the peak of their puberty faster than guys, but the rest is difficult to determine. Some females are very emotionally mature, but others are unstable due to the high level of hormones in their body. I think the emotional maturity rate is even or similar to a guy.
