  • I look down on anyone that is childish, but that's not to be confused with being a "child-at-heart."

    Having a child-like sense of innocence, or whatever, is mostly fine and can be a good thing sometimes, but when someone is a constant whiner and gets all pouty when things don't go their way, especially over trivial things, as a child would, that's where it's bad...

    So in an "immaturity-sense," yes... I tend to look down on that. But if, say, you still have a soft-spot for things you enjoyed as a kid/growing up, that's cool I guess... nothing wrong with that.

  • It depends on what traits you are talking about. Personally I would say that her liking teddy bears, puppies and other girly things is a positive trait. Her not being able to handle the problems life throws at you, and remaining ignorant of the harsh grown up world can be a problem.

  • If you are refering to a girl is still a child at heart than no, in fact i actually respect them because growing up can be hard but they still managed to keep what most of us have lost, our childhood.

    If yoy are talking about childish behavour such as getting upset and complain when they dont get what they want than after a while i start to look down on them.

    • If she had ADHD it probably won't corrupt her XD or at least for me that shields me from ever losing my innocents. muahahaha ^^

    • So you think then you meet people like me and the mind is corrupt ;) yes I am evil but helpful so it balances out

  • If she's an irresponsible spoiled brat that laughs out loud at everything and has the "only God can judge me" attitude then yes.

    • But did he judge you in front of other people?
      @love66 for exactly the same reasons you bite yours.

    • Yup definitely judged me in front of other people.

  • It varies.

    Acting childish/acting cute is a turn-off.

    Being child-like in curiosity, or being really naive about the world, is a turn-on but yet "childish".

    Being drawn todays cute and cuddly things and things that are meant for a young audience (say cartoons etc.) could be considered childish too, whether that's a turn on/off depends.

  • Depends on what you mean by childish.

    If you mean childish as in bratty: spoiled, whiny, throws tantrums and always wants things her way, then that is annoying and unattractive.

    If you mean childish as in playful, cutesy, excitable, impish, lighthearted, mischievous and/or whimsical, then that is wonderful and attractive to me.

    What do you mean by 'innocent'? Like... inexperienced sexually? Like... naive? Needs more clarification.

  • It depends on whst she's being childish about but. At my age I'm trying to attract more intelegent and intellectual female company so always going to parties every Friday , Saturday is my idea of childish, or having a fan club of boys blow your phone up is childish. And spending all your money on shoes, and dresses is my idea of childish also. But that's just me

  • Not if they're just innocent, but I can't stand it when people laugh at other people in a mocking sort of way.

    If you're just innocent, that's fine, as long as it's genuine and not that acting dumb thing.

  • I think it's really cute as long as she's not overly sheltered. If she's aware if all the negative things around her and is still super happy then that would be fantastic. Most of the people around me are pretty cynical and I'm getting sick of it. It would be

    I love acting crazy and that is a type of childish behaviour. But I do not cry if someone gets a ether Christmas present or punch people who do not deserve it. :)

  • I won't look down on her, but I won't date her either. I'm too old for that, and girls stuck on childhood aesthetics generally have some harsh life lessons to learn and that's a bunch of drama I don't want, need, or tolerate.

  • I look down on childish women/girls because I don't like when a female acts like she can't stand on her own two feet and take care of her responsibilities. It's not a attractive long term relationship quality.

  • depends on the childish behavior. if your acting like a little kid, then that's weird but if you are just being playful-like then that's cool, I love when girls are like that with me. it just means that they re comfortable with me.

  • no generally dont. now i suppose u have a specific person in mind.. to him maybe.
    to some intelligence is a turn on, to some maturity, to some child like behaviour, as long as ur deal with everything dat matters with maturity but its juz ur general nature which is childish.
    i personaly like the childish nature when ur alone with the person, not all the time though.

    u say just child, innocent?
    well i would love dat, who wouldn't like a cute , innocent faced girl, but with maturity otherwise like in decisions or important stuff.

    • I just kind of said something stupid in front of everyone... Knowing everyone would keep away fr me he did too, (it was in the classroom).

      Okay I'll keep that tip in mind to talk 50/50!

      by the way if you wanted a girl to be happy does that mean you care about her, of you like her?

    • hmm now dat ur conscious of it, its likely u won't repeat it, think first say after, actually there's nothing rong in saying ur heart out aloud but the world is twisted now and so will u have to learn to be. okay

      well for me, i ll want any one and everyone to be happy.
      but in general, if they want u happy, they care for u, dats fr sure.
      like u- may or may not be.

  • if you act like a child i'll treat you like one- simple as

  • I have to say that i don't personally do that, my girlfriend is 3 years older than me, and for 2 years i made fun of her for being a pedo because i was still underage when she turn 18, so im the child-like one, but her little sister is just 1 years younger than me is she puts me to shame when we compete to see who is the most baby-like when we are in public, i love that about her, but i also love her as a sister, so if you refer to "if we guys look down on our crush/girlfriend for being childish" i not sure i could answer the same, tho she too can be like that sometimes but does not make me love her any less, if any gives me the chance to be the adult for her, but if your question was in general then i stick with my answer, no i dont look down on girls that are childish

  • Not if they are pedophiles.

    Young at heart is good. A woman or man child is not good.

    Mature people know how to kick back and have fun

    Childish people are constantly stressed about everything bc they are immature

    I think you should define childish so we know what you're talking about

    Puppies are not childish for example. Tantrums are childish. Not knowing how to do day to day things necessary to survive is childish. Being playful is not childish. Being incompetent is childish.

  • I think it depends on the person as you can read from the comments. Sure you can be childish but you should also be mature at times to show you are not a child anymore. Because childish behaviour, as you describe it, does not mean you are a child.

    I am also kinda childish and most people like it and others do not. It just depends for you to know where you can be childish and with who you have to act more grown up. If we are talking friends you should find friends who will tolerate the childish behaviour because that is something that will belong to you and you want to be yourself around your friends.
    If we are talking about love you need to show both sides. As you see in the comments, some girls don't mind and others do. And once a guy likes a girl, he will eventually like her more if she shows more of her.
    Good luck! :)
