Ya, I feel that maturity is a hindrance for two people falling in love. The people in love should be at the same maturity level in order to take forward the relationship coz if anyone is immature, there will be certain things happening leading to ending the relationship. So, for the best relationship, the couple should be equally mature.

Maturity is not being based on the age of a person because there are actually a lot of indiviuals who are younger and are already mature. About the age in falling inlove i will say i am in between yes and no because if the age gap is far two different i am not in favor of that. Like a relationship with someone who is of the same age with your father like a 16 to 45 or something like that.

Actually in my relationship, my gf sometimes calls me dady especially when she is seeking some sort of emotional support and maybe when I am in the wrong moods. It often brings me a soothing effect in my moods and thus alleviates the sometimes stressful lives we have. Yes, my gf may be like a daughter to me but that may just come out of mere fantasy rather than reality. It all boils down to maturity of both and that is were respect and acceptance gets involved once more!

Not at all! I am 46 and my girlfriend is 26 and we are doing very very well indeed! Proof that age does not matter.

If RESPECT and ACCEPTANCE exists between the two, the likelihood of age being a hindrance in their relationship diminishes. RESPECT that each has his or her right to act in accordance to his or her age. ACCEPTANCE that he or she has toward the other with respect to the age gap and thus the potential differences that this may bring in terms of educational and physiological levels.

Maturity is no hinderence to any relation. As many people love when they are in their teen ages but I feel that if you love someone in your age of maturity the the love will be very strong.

yes, i do believe so. maturity is not something that comes with age, so it does matter, to me at least that the person i'm with is mature enough for me. a good relationship requires a lot of patience, understanding and a general dose of love. you can't find these in a person who is immature. love does not grow when there is a mismatch in maturity level between two people.

Immaturity probably does not prevent anyone from falling in love, but the relationship can't move forward much if either one of them is too immature to know how to do so. If either one of them aren't mature enough to not flirt with anyone else, to respect their mate, to know how to compromise when in an argument.. among other things, it's not going to work.

for me, age does not matter. as long as both of you like each other. and that would even include even if there age difference is 20 or 30 years of age. maturity could not even be proportionated with age. I have known lots of people who are 28 - 35 years of age and still not that mature. I have known also some people who are aged 17 - 20 but are already mature. maturity could not be equated with age. but to some of my friends they prefer that the man they like is older than them. to them age does matter. and they do not like younger partners than them. do you have a boyfriend? is your partner older or younger than you?
