15 Signs You’re Dating A Girl, NOT A Woman

If you’re a guy looking for the perfect woman, make sure you know the difference between a woman and a girl. And no, we’re not talking about age, either: The difference between the two is all about maturity. Women have it, and girls don’t.

There are some signs to establish whether or not the person you’re interested in has a girl or woman mentality, and you can read about them below. Keep these in mind next time you meet someone new: Does she act like a girl, or like a mature woman?

#1. Girls Want Attention, Women Want Respect

While a girl will do just about anything to turn heads, women know that respect is the most important thing.

#2. Independent

Girls are dependent on others for everything. A woman is independent, and knows how to get things done by herself.

#3. Know-It-All

Girls think they know it all, while women know that there’s always value in being open to learning something new.

#4. Girls Don’t Know Their Limits

Girls tend to party like they can’t stop, whereas women know their limits — and know how to prevent a hangover.

#5. Controlled Emotions

Girls let emotions get the best of them, while women know how to process their feelings and funnel them into a productive outlet.

#6. Open To Meeting

Girls won’t want to meet your family and friends, while a woman knows that whoever is important to you should be important to her.

#7. Social Media Obsession

Girls are obsessed with social media, and know how to cultivate their presence online, even if it’s fake. Women know that social media is just a small part of their identity.

#8. Free Time

A woman knows how to spend her free time productively, whereas girls often have a lot of time to waste.

#9. Health Consciousness

Girls will often be preoccupied with their health and eating, whereas women are confident about their eating choices.

#10. Secret Sharing

A grown woman will always share her secrets with you — that is, if you’ve earned her trust.

#11. Modesty

Grown women know that modesty in dressing can be more effective in getting people’s respect than showing off.

#12. Princess Standards

Girls often feel they should be treated like princesses, while women demand respect without getting ornery about it.

#13. Importance of Reading

Grown women know that entertainment spans far beyond the realm of Netflix and OnDemand.

#14. Strong and Solo

Women like to be strong and can be independent, whereas some girls will rely on someone else to take care of them.

#15. Game Playing

At the end of the day, a girl is immature and might play games with you. A woman knows what she wants, and will be direct about it.
