Sex & the Single Woman: Stuck in the Gap

It is a well-documented fact, especially among women, that men generally mature slower than women. It is something we are forced to accept, despite the fact that this is often hard to do.

Recently, my girl friends and I are noticing that this gap in maturity is manifesting itself in a new, not good way. We are lucky enough to be friends with a lot of great guys and we hang out with them a lot. Lately, however, we’ve noticed that they seem to have a habit of egging each other on when it comes to picking up women.

As a woman in the dating circuit, I have nothing against a guy who wants to spit some game on a girl. However, there is a difference between seeing an attractive woman and wanting to talk to her. and hitting on any female that walks by just for kicks.

It seems to me that no matter how old I get, this maturity gap doesn’t seem to be closing in at all. At what point are we supposed to accept that the men we know and love aren’t going to get any more mature?
