Just like in the story of Peter Pan, the boy who never grew up - - many men never do either. So men or women - - Can you tell them when you see them? Have you had some personal experience with a Peter Pan guy yourself? Is there a similar syndrome for women?

what do you mean? mentally? then yes. there are some people who doesn't age mentally. i have seen 60 year olds who still play in the arcades and play mmorpg and such and they are still into toys. You cannot say anything about them because those things can be a hobby or a liking. As long as they are actively helping the society then im not against it. similar to women? i think i know people who still like dolls and such and they are in the early to mid 20's its similar but its cuter

yes, I agree with you. There are guys who still refuse to grow up. And to quote a Filipina actress, "Boys will always be boys. They just change their toys."

I think that Peter pan syndrome is really not an acceptable medical syndrome. It's just like a condition where someone refuses to grow up. Well anyway, i really don't know if there is a counterpart for women for that syndrome. I still need to take a quiz tho to know if my guy is having that syndrome. LOL

I have known two men in my life like this, I think I am attracted to that type, they are always good fun to be around plus the fact I guess I am a little that way also, I have been told many times that i should act my age, I think it is good to stay young at heart so many people think that the older you get the more serious you have to be...not so
