The Mystery of Maturity

Just / My Type ( is a powerful blog written by an insightful woman in Vancouver. She has written articles on the differences between girls and women, boys and men.

Lifted from the articles:

Girl: lack independence, are ruled by insecurity, lack self-respect, throw tantrums, have princess syndrome, don’t have strong values or boundaries and can’t hold yourself on your own

Women: independent, ambitious, knows your worth and value, has a strong moral compass, is considerate and an able communicator and doesn’t let insecurity dominate your psyche

Boy: may have somewhat of an idea of what he wants, but not really. He doesn’t think too much about it, and even if he does, doesn’t exert much effort to get it. A boy is passive. A boy cares mostly only for girls who are hot, wild and exciting. A boy avoids uncomfortable conversations. A boy has not established his moral compass or values and consequently, is often inconsistent. A boy makes promises but doesn’t follow through. boy is afraid of rejection and acts passive so that his pride and ego won’t ever get too banged up.

Man: independent, knows your worth and value, has a strong moral compass, is considerate and an able communicator and doesn’t let insecurity dominate your psyche.
These are some stark differences and cover a lot of ground. I find it interesting that the Man and Woman share the same characteristics. The Girl and Boy differ. Can that be right? Do Men and Women converge into a singular set of attainable virtues with the only difference being Women are ambitious and Men know their worth / value?

I wonder when the transition from girl to woman or boy to man occurs on average. Everyone is different, but what are the odds of finding anybody having these attributes under the age of 25, 30, ???. What triggers the change? If parents can't instill these virtues, are the young adults doomed until the hard knocks of life bang the virtues into them? I wonder.

There is a time in life to make mistakes and grow. My heart goes out to anybody under 30. I remember the trials and tribulations that I went through, and they continue through all of life, even when you are going on 50! The challenge of articles like this is that they may display a black and white version what a suitable mate may look like. IMO a 100% man or woman is incredibly rare by these standards. Is 75% or 80% or even 95% OK? Does a person have to be 100% to attract another 100%, or can two 75% people get together and learn together? I think so. What all that said, the blogs do an excellent job of describing a very complicated process in a very small amount of room. Complete coverage does, and have, taken the contents of a book to attempt to cover.
