A lot of women, no matter what age they are, claim that the guys their age are "so immature" and that older men are more compatible with them. This is, for roughly all cases, complete bullshit. Let's examine the reasons why.
The immature things men do tend to stay forever
Some call laughing at farts immature, because they refer to it as "childish". I'd hate to break it to you, but there's no magic age where that stops being funny for most guys. You're just as likely to see a 5 year old, a 10 year old, a 15 year old, a 20 year old, a 25 year old, a 30 year old, and so forth laughing at a fart. When it comes to handling money, either you're a responsible person or you aren't. You don't go from throwing your money around at age 22 to being the complete opposite at age 26, unless something drastic happens to force you that way, like going bankrupt (a sign of potential immaturity that most likely will repeat itself in the future). Another instance that is drastic that brings about changes in how you look at money is having a kid, and then you have to ask yourself "if they're involved with someone, then I can't have them, and if they're not, then they were immature when they had a kid". Argument defeated.
You don't want maturity
There are mature men in your age bracket. Trust me. You just don't pay attention. I'm sure every single one of us could think of several or at least one instance where you could see a girl completely ignore a mature, sensible, nice guy, because to them, it wasn't that he was "mature". No, instead, they call him "boring". He's "too serious". He doesn't have an edge. He's not the "bad boy". What qualities are possessed by the bad boys? IMMATURITY. Guaranteed if you date an older guy who is legitimately mature, when you're not at the same maturity level as he is, you'll find him boring as well. However, we're talking about people that can't look at the big picture OR the little details, so to these people, they'd most likely blame the breakup as being "the age difference was too big", as opposed to "he's too mature". Argument defeated in both accounts.
The girls are just as immature.
Is it mature to gossip about your so-called friends behind their backs? Is it mature to subconsciously (or sometimes consciously) go after the guy that gives you more social power and clout, rather than the one that would treat you with the proper respect? Is it mature to get drunk off your ass? To sleep around like a whore? If you're one to do any of these things, then guess what...you're not as mature as you think you are, ladies. Argument defeated once more.
Are there exceptions to the rules? Of course. There are always people that exhibit the best qualities out there and deviate from the standard. You may very well be that type of girl who, at age 14, is as mature as your average 24 year old. And if that's the case, all the power to you and I wish you both good luck. The chances of that truly being the likelihood are GREATLY against you. More often than not, you're simply viewing the guys your age through a distortion of self-perception, thinking that you are more mature than you really are, downgrading all those around you in the process. This is heightened all that much more if you're the type of girl that has the reaction of wanting to date an older person because you think they're more mature simply because you've been dating nothing but the immature bad boys and you've generalized all surrounding men to be in that same group.
Maturity doesn't come with age. If that were the case, you would never meet an immature adult and every teenager or child you met would definitively be less mature than someone older than them. Maturity comes with the individual person. Some people are never able to grasp maturity. Some people grasp it at an early age.
