15 Men Share The 'Immature' Things Women Do That Turn Them Off

By

A beautiful thing happened on the Internet today, and I'm here to spread the good word.

While browsing a Reddit thread in which user marapara asked male Redditors what they consider "immature" behavior in the opposite sex, I discovered men's and women's skin crawl at the sight of the same annoying qualities.

Biology cannot separate us! We stand together, outraged at your bad habits, no matter who the hell you are or how your genitals look!

Below is Reddit's guide to not being a pain-in-the-ass man or woman.

1. Get your sh*t together.

We all do it. It sucks, but we all do it.

2. Own your failures.

Sometimes, you're the problem.

3. Practice loyalty to those who are loyal.

Comment from discussion Men, what do you consider to be "immature" in a girl?.

If you want to be single, be single. If you want to be committed to someone, be committed to someone. If you want an open relationship, talk about it first.

4. Be sympathetic, regardless of personal experience.

Try to imagine a life or motivations other than your own.

5. Practice personal responsibility.

Occasionally, it feels kind of amazing to be your own parent.

6. Embrace straightforward communication.

Say it with me: "I feel taken for granted when you expect me to clean all your dishes." Great, now throw that passive aggressive Post-it in the trash where it belongs.

7. Spread kindness, not drama.

Comment from discussion Men, what do you consider to be "immature" in a girl?.

Remember the straightforward communication we JUST practiced? Fantastic, use it.

8. Consider your finances.

Comment from discussion Men, what do you consider to be "immature" in a girl?.

No one likes the "forgot my wallet" friend. Don't be that friend. Better yet, take money you'd normally spend on yourself and buy a pal a goddamn sandwich. It takes that small of an effort to make everyone feel valued.

9. Take a break from technology.

Comment from discussion Men, what do you consider to be "immature" in a girl?.

Who are you even texting right now? Everyone you text is sitting right here. Put that away.

10. Speak like the intelligent human you are.

Comment from discussion Men, what do you consider to be "immature" in a girl?.

If you're a wittle bebe I guess you should probably leave the bar for legal purposes.

11. Take it easy on the social media.

Comment from discussion Men, what do you consider to be "immature" in a girl?.

Instagram likes and Twitter followers didn't exist 15 years ago, and humankind somehow still found ways to live full, productive, valid existences.

12. Control your temper.

Comment from discussion Men, what do you consider to be "immature" in a girl?.

That whole "take a deep breath and count to 10" business is no joke. After that, if you're still ready to rage because your sister set your car on fire, then, yes, go for it.

13. Keep your farts to yourself.

Comment from discussion Men, what do you consider to be "immature" in a girl?.

Unless someone explicitly requests otherwise.

14. Be a man/woman of your word.

Comment from discussion Men, what do you consider to be "immature" in a girl?.

What's that? You promised Vanessa a week ago you'd get brunch today, only now the morning arrived and you're not feelin' it? Can you maybe tell me the rest of this story on the way to F*CKING BRUNCH WITH VANESSA?

15. Don't be an actual child.

Comment from discussion Men, what do you consider to be "immature" in a girl?.

This one feels almost too literal, but let's throw it into the mix for the sake of thoroughness.

Adulting is famously difficult, but everyone achieves it with varying levels of success. Unless you're an actual child, much of the list above is within your reach.

We grown-ups are all just out here, trying not to be assh*les.

Throw on a pair of pants, eat a balanced, fibrous breakfast and join us.
