20 Signs Your Guy Is Immature

A new study of the maturity differences between genders reveals that men don’t grow up until the age of 43. That’s eleven years after women mature at age 32.

Immature Guy Playing Video Games With GirlfriendAccording to the study, both men and women agree that guys stay immature until their late 30s and early 40s. Eight out of ten women said that men actually never stop being childish.

These women found burping, farting, eating fast food in the early hours, and playing video games to be particularly annoying.

One in four men were willing to admit to being immature. That’s twice as many as the women who would describe themselves the same way.

Can this difference in maturity levels be enough to end a relationship? Three in ten women reported ending a relationship because of losing their patience with an immature guy.

46% of women reported being in a relationship where they felt they had to mother their guy too much. The average woman had to tell her immature partner to act his age more than once a month.

But is an immature guy all that bad? There were some benefits reported. Four in ten people thought it kept the relationship fun and fresh. One in three people thought it helped in bonding with children.

Here are the top 20 signs your guy is immature:

  1. Finding their own farts and burps funny

  1. I personally think there’s nothing wrong with a man who plays video games. I play them, too. Some reasons on the list are very stupid.

  2. Christopher schneider says

    Playing video games is immature? Ok by that logic so is watching tv or watching movies. Gaming takes more brain power than either of those things and when I’m at home I game with my wife and my daughter and when I’m not at home I work 40+ hours a week. I’m also a musician and honestly anybody who enjoys clubbing is much more immature than anybody playing any video game and probably doesn’t have the mental capacity to complete the deku tree in ocarina of time and wouldn’t be very entertaining to talk to in the first place so you can stay at your clubs and waste money on alchohol and cheap flings. I’ll stick with my family and be a mature adult while slaying demons and saving the world.

  3. some ones been sneaking on me :O … He knows every thing i do :O and my mum does to me 😀

    I have played video games for most of MY life. Sorry for the typo people.

  5. Mark Huertas says

    I’m sorry but I see some of these items listed as personal choices a man wants to make. I play video games, have for most of life, yet I can hold a very deep conversation better than most who are too “mature” for video games. Riding a BMX or skateboard is immature? It’s healthier for the body and environment as opposed to a vehicle.
