I experienced this with my ex girlfriend and have noticed it with so many other couples aswell, the girl just seems so much more mature and grown up
not even in obvious way, not in terms of personality or behaviour either and not because I'm immature (neither are the other guys I noticed this with).
It's hard to explain but they seemed more adult-like, my ex was 2 years younger than me aswell which seemed even more surprising. I felt like they're just a different stage of their adult life or something
Especially noticeable when you stay with them, is it perhaps because they generally know how to look after themselves, cook, clean, take up on the responsibilities (not saying guys don't)?
It's really hard to explain, it's sort of like you know how you see couples where the girl is taking care of herself and
the guy too? Not because the guy can't, but just because the girl seems to be so much better at it? Could it be that girls know more 'life skills' at a younger age?
Have any of you ever noticed this?
