Just because you are dating someone in your age group, does not mean they have the same maturity level. One of our readers is facing this dating dilemma right now. She met someone who is only a year younger but when it comes to maturity level, she often thinks she is dating a high schooler!
Have you ever dated someone who seems like they are stuck in adolescence? It can get stressful if you decide to stick around. When you meet someone who struggle with grown up things like a steady job, goals, or even a stable place to live, reality will set in eventually.
I think some people intentionally go for these perpetual teenagers because they are not as intimidating. There is something that draw folks to the free-spirits who are unstable. Deep down they know there is no real future with them so the relationship has an expiration date. Sometimes, a relationship with an expiration date is all some folks can handle.
Do you think it is possible that you intentionally date folks who refuse to grow up? Would you wait around until they got it together? Could you help them mature and find a way to make it work?
