We all grow gradually learning from each relationship. We tend to learn a lot during the younger years and this is how we tend to mature after a particular age.

And once you are mature, you will be able to understand the mistakes you have done in your path in each of your relationships. That is when you realise your immature side and start growing up.

We tend to understand the dynamics of relationships and how they work only after failing in relationships at a certain age. With every single mistake, we can understand what works and what doesn't work in relationships. And that helps us know what to expect from the other person. Till we understand that, we always expect the moon and get disappointed.

In fact, as we mature, our expectations from the other person will decrease and our acceptance and tolerance will increase. Then we'll understand that love is more about giving and not taking whether it is giving attention or blaming the other person about anything. Read on...

Difference #1

Mature couples discuss whereas immature couples argue with each other. There is a lot of difference between discussing and arguing. In a discussion, you try to understand the other person's point of view and try to explain yourself clearly without trying to be loud or pushy.

Difference #2

Mature couples aren't clingy whereas immature couples crave for each other's attention all the time. Giving attention or enjoying attention from a loved one is a beautiful experience. But what immature couples don't understand is the fact that it isn't possible to pamper each other all the time. Life has its ups and downs and one might have to be busy with other things too. That is where one needs space.

Difference #3

Mature couples know when to be playful and when to be serious, whereas immature couples let loose the inner child and trouble each other making everything messy. There is a time to act in a matured way and there is a time to be a child in the arms of your loved one. If you try to trouble your loved one with your sweet child-like behavior all the time, he or she might run away.

Difference #4

Mature couples never hide any facts from each other whereas immature couples hide their ugly sides to ensure that they enjoy a clean image. But sooner or later, when the truth comes out, the relationship goes for a toss. True love is beyond self-images. Unconditional love is possible even when you expose all your sides to your loved one. But if you hide anything fearing that you may not be loved, the very fact that you are not open about your past may break the relationship.

Difference #5

Mature couples help each other in all stages as each one would want the other to win. Immature couples seldom give any importance to each other's demands as immature people are self-absorbed in self-importance.

Difference #6

Mature couples are very clear about what they want and what they expect in a relationship (whether it is physical or emotional) whereas immature couples say one thing but expect something else and this creates a lot of problems.

Difference #7

Mature couples know that being silent is more important than chattering all the time. Immature couples try to talk a lot and gradually get caught up in meaningless topics that lead to breakups. True love is about acceptance; it is not about pampering each other or showing false care or attention while hiding your true side.
