I asked this in "Ask a Male", but I would also like to know the females perspective on what qualities in a man one found to make them "Mature".

Ladies what is your definition of a Males Maturity. List both what makes either your bf/husband Mature or Immature. This to can include experience of ones you have either dated or observed over the years.

Can't wait to hear your answers!

Never take anyone for granted cause you never know when you might lose them as you will not get that chance to let them know your True Feelings.

I think the signs of maturity are much the same in men and women.

A mature person doesn't hold grudges.

A mature person doesn't make a mountain out of a molehill.

A mature person knows to pick his battles.

A mature person can share when he's hurt or upset, without attacking.

A mature person can listen to complaints or conflicts without becoming overly defensive.

A mature person knows everyone is not the same, so tries to see all points of view.

A mature person cleans up his own mess, whether that's spilled milk or spilled words.

I also think a mature person doesn't waste time calling other people immature. You accept people how they are, and that doesn't change that you need to behave well.

A mature man is respectful to everyone, especially women and not because he wants something from them.

A mature man is consistent in showing that he cares and is not all just lip service (i.e. saying "I love you" and doing nothing to show for it and visa versa).

A mature man is able to learn from the past and appreciate the learning experience instead of holding a grudge and blaming others.

A mature man does his own self-development and understands that he's a student for life.

A mature man respects boundaries and knows how to keep his hands to himself.

A mature man doesn't shy away from learning from others or have strong engrained ego problems.

A mature man is willing to take a risk to get the love that he wants.

A mature man knows that all women are not alike and that we're not all whores or gold diggers.

A mature man will try to meet you half way or understand where you're coming from even if he doesn't agree with it.

A mature man doesn't have issues with people different from him and embraces other people's uniqueness.

He's also not hung up on getting older and views every aspect of his life as an exciting adventure.

Well that's what I think anyway... Hehe

I agree with all that has been said above, but a mature man should be financially independent too. I am not saying he has to make a certain amount of money, but he should make enough to cover his own expenses.

A mature man is one who is confident, honest and has integrity. He should have goals for his life and know what he wants. He should know how to treat others, especially women. He should know better then to be disrespectful.

i think mature people behave in a way that is to be respected. that includes everything...responsibilities, relationships, goals, taking care of themselves...and so on.

mature people respect themselves and others and i don't think men and women differ when it comes to being mature. i think it happens to a lot of women sooner, but the outcome is the same.

Mature? I think this is a generalized question because there are all levels of maturity in both genders. It depends on ones social conditioning, their thinking pattern, their upbringing, their morals, values, their determination, their strive for ambition, their goals short-term and long-term, their personality; their emotional gain or loss (in the past), their life experiences, their opinions and also ALL Of the ABOVE on the woman's part.

So ... I still have yet to come to an answer. A male could be sexually mature - knowing how to treat a lady in that category - but he may be emotionally unstable (immature, not maturing to the fullest extent he could be). He may be mentally mature but sexually immature, meaning he still could learn. It's a complex question and for once in a while I'm stumped.

Above all, i think it's important that a mature man is one who is understanding to the people around them, to the environment. Also, they shall be a decision maker, no girls like to make decision out of everything as the man would become so undependable.
