Maturity – Is It a State of Mind?

Last year I did a relationship poll about dating someone younger. Out of the women who participated in the poll, most agreed that MATURITY is important no matter how old the man is (younger or older). 42 percent said they would date or marry a man 5 years younger, 25 percent said 10 years younger, 25 percent said that age didn’t matter and 8 percent said 2 years younger. One person made a comment that they preferred men who were 5 to 10 years older.

I’ve dated younger and older men and for me, it’s a toss up. I have found that age does not determine whether the man is mature. If the man is older, I would expect him to be more mature, but unfortunately, it’s no guarantee. Sometimes the young guys are looking for a substitute mommy and that’s not cool either. No, I’m not going to cook for you, clean for you or wash your dirty drawers (yes, I went there).

When it all boils down to it, it’s about finding a man who is compatible with you on all levels (mentally, spiritually, physically, etc.). Whether it’s with a guy your age, older or younger, maturity is a state of mind.

  2. I agree Sheila. It goes both ways. Most young girls are looking for father figures. Someone to give the emotional stimulation they probably never received from their father. Afterawhile that tends to play out, and weaken the relationship.

    With that said, age aint number but a number.

  3. Don and DC, thanks for stopping by 🙂

    Don, we’re in agreement that the relationship should be equally yoked…nobody trying to be a substitute for something else.
