A Study has revealed that Men mature later than Women.
The term Maturity is relative and is subjective.
Maturity is measured differently from one Ethnic Group to another.
Taking relative parameters to arrive at a conclusion, to me, seems incorrect.
“As a man, especially one who works for a children’s channel, the question if men ever reach maturity is one I am well accustomed to,” Tim Patterson, Nickelodeon’s programming director, said.
The study confirmed the suspicions that men mature later than women. In fact, men were almost twice as likely to describe themselves as immature than women were, and one in four men believe they are actively immature. Three out of ten women ended a relationship because they lost patience with their man’s immaturity.
The male and female perceptions of themselves and each other were alarming. Eight out of ten women believe that men will “never stop being childish.” Women defined the childish acts that bother them most as, passing gas, burping, eating fast food in the last hours of the night, and playing videogames.
Women were twice as likely to experience the feeling that they were the grownup one in their current relationship. Forty-six percent of the female participants studied have had a relationship in which they felt they had to mother their male counterpart. Women claimed they actually had to tell their man to, “act his age” on an average of 14 times a year, more than once a month.
Besides maturity, women yearned for communication. One quarter of women wished their partners would talk about themselves and what they felt more often. Women also felt they were the ones that made all the important decisions in their relationships.
The study also exposed ” Men’s Top 30 Maturity Failings — As Experienced By Women” The top ten are listed as the following:
- Finding their own passing of gas and burps amusing
- Eating fast food at 2:00 AM
- Playing videogames
- Driving too fast
- Finding rude words amusing
- Driving with loud music
- Playing practical jokes
- Trying to beat children at games and sports
- Staying silent during an argument
- Not being able to cook simple meals
Women, generally, are good decision makers.
