Fantasies can help rev up your sex life. Myths, on the other hand, can stop desire dead in its tracks. Such myths aren't the legends from classical history.
They're the stories we tell ourselves and each other to support the notion that older people shouldn't, can't, and wouldn't want to have sex. This type of myth, however, bears as little relationship to reality as do the fanciful sagas of ancient gods and goddesses.
Here are some examples of the most popular sexual myths and the myth-busting truths. The culture we live in exalts youth.
Turn on the TV or open a magazine and you'll be barraged with images of supple skin, firm flesh, and lustrous locks. But if your mirror is reflecting a different picture these days, you may feel like the party is going on without you. Sure, thinning hair, laugh lines, and a paunchy midriff are no picnic.
But think back on what it was that made you attractive in your younger years. Was it your soulful brown eyes, your crooked smile, or maybe your infectious laugh? Chances are, those attributes are still as appealing as ever. In fact, a survey conducted by the AARP and Modern Maturity magazine revealed that the percentage of people age 45 and older who consider their partners physically attractive increases with age.
Whether it's the white-haired grandmother fussing with her knitting or the loveable old codger puffing on a pipe, society is inclined to desexualize older adults. When older adults do express their sexuality, it's often viewed with derision — for example, the stereotype of the "dirty old man.
People are living longer and remaining healthier. And they are more vigorous than ever before. Former president George H. Bush went skydiving to celebrate his 75th birthday, John Glenn returned to space at age 77, and Carol Sing forged a new world record at 57 by becoming the oldest woman to swim the English Channel.
With this trend toward later-life vitality, why shouldn't seniors be allowed to cast off outdated and ill-fitting stereotypes in order to express their normal, healthy sexual appetites? Men and women lose their ability to perform sexually after a certain age. Vaginal dryness and erectile difficulties loom large as you hurtle past You may be feeling that you should just listen to what your body is trying to tell you: Sex is a thing of the past.
While a certain degree of physical change is unavoidable, this fact of life doesn't necessarily translate into insurmountable sexual problems. For men, the Viagra revolution means most erection problems can be corrected with little medical intervention. For women, high-tech vaginal lubricants and hormone creams and rings are viable substitutes for what nature no longer supplies.
What's important for both sexes to remember, though, is that a softer erection, reduced natural lubrication, or a less intense orgasm doesn't mean you're no longer interested in your partner or in sex itself. For many couples, these kinds of changes provide an impetus for developing a new, rich, and satisfying style of lovemaking — one that's based more on extended foreplay and less on intercourse and orgasm.
Drooping libido, slower rates of arousal, and the predictability of having the same partner for 20 or more years all add up to a ho-hum sex life. While it's true that a year-old will have a faster, harder erection and a more forceful ejaculation than his year-old counterpart, it doesn't mean the quality of the experience is necessarily better. On the contrary, the older man has better control of his ejaculations. Less penile sensitivity means he may be able to enjoy a wider range of erotic sensations and maintain his erection longer.
And his experience may pay off in improved sexual technique and a better understanding of what will please his partner. Many women begin to find sexual confidence in their 30s, and this blossoms with maturity.
As a woman moves through her 40s, her orgasms actually become more intense, and she can still have multiple orgasms. After menopause, when she's free of any worry about pregnancy, she can give herself over to the pure enjoyment of sex. Although longtime partners do have to contend with issues of familiarity in their relationship, these problems can be offset by greater emotional intimacy and trust. Because inhibitions often lessen with age, sex at 50 or 60 may include a level of experimentation and playfulness you wouldn't have dreamed of in your younger years.
In , Modern Maturity magazine and the AARP foundation polled 1, adults age 45 and older about the role sex played in their lives. The findings paint a detailed picture of sexuality at midlife and later. Over all, the majority of men But an even higher percentage At age 75, the proportion dropped to one in four. Still, nearly three-quarters of respondents of all ages had intercourse once a month or more, provided they had partners.
However, when the group was examined as a whole, one out of five men and two out of five women had not participated in any form of sexual touching or caressing over the last six months. Men tended to think about sex and feel sexual desire more frequently than women.
While rates of intercourse were similar for both sexes, more men than women reported engaging in sexual touching. Self-s timulation on a regular basis was also about eight times higher among men. Not surprisingly, one of the major factors associated with respondents' satisfaction was the availability of a partner. In the 45—59 age group, roughly four out of five individuals had partners; by comparison, only one in five women over 75 had partners. Declining health also appeared to have an effect on sexual activity and satisfaction.
On a list of features that might improve their sexual satisfaction, the men ranked better health for themselves or their partners at the top. Although impotence emerged as a significant issue for nearly a quarter of the men, less than half of those men had ever sought medical treatment for the problem. While the initial prerequisites for sexual activity are physiological — functional sex organs, adequate hormone levels, and freedom from healt h conditions that interfere with the body's ability to respond to erotic cues — these elements don't guarantee sexual satisfaction.
Stress, anxiety, self-esteem issues, negative past experiences, lifestyle demands, loss of loved ones, and relationship conflicts can weigh heavily. During midlife and beyond, these factors, combined with naturally occurring physical changes, can make you vulnerable to sexual problems. It may seem obvious that not having a partner is an impediment to an active sex life, but it's an especially important issue for older people.
By age 65, many people find themselves alone, through either divorce or widowhood. This affects sexuality in a variety of ways. The partner gap is a particular problem for American women because their average life span 79 years is more than five years longer than that of men. Because American women marry men who are on average three years older, that can mean even more time alone. Should a woman want to remarry, her chance of finding a new mate in her age bracket dwindles yearly; there is an average of only 7 men for every 10 women age 65 and above.
All this boils down to the fact that, compared with men, women are likely to live a greater portion of their lives without a mate. Finally, starting a new sexual relationship after divorce or the death of a spouse can present its own dilemmas. People often fear that they will not become aroused or be able to have an orgasm with a different partner.
They also may be self-conscious about baring their body in front of someone new. Because a new relationship may come along months or years after their last sexual relationship, some individuals feel anxious that they have "forgotten how to have sex" or that "the equipment doesn't work anymore.
Tension in a relationship can be deadly to a couple's sex life. In many cases, conflict is at the root of a sexual problem. Other times, a sexual issue strains a couple's ability to get along.
The following issues are often connected to sexual problems. Accumulated anger, hurt, disappointment, and resentment can fester, destroying closeness between partners.
These pent-up feelings often extinguish the flames of desire. For men, anger and frustration can interfere with arousal and getting an erection. Likewise, the breakdown of trust can be devastating to a woman's ability to reach orgasm. Both partners can suffer loss of libido in a conflict-ridden environment. This type of disappointment turns toxic when one or both partners resort to criticism and defensiveness — two of the major harbingers of divorce.
In addition, one member of the couple may unconsciously withhold sex as a way of expressing anger or to maintain the upper hand in a situation where he or she feels otherwise powerless. Communication is essential for partners to build the trust needed for a successful sexual relationship. By talking frankly about your feelings, you can foster acceptance and understanding in your relationship. This makes it easier for you and your partner to collaborate on finding solutions to issues, and it can prevent resentments from piling up.
When conversation breaks down, anger and resentment are likely to build. Dialogue is especially vital as physical changes take place. Vaginal dryness or erection difficulties can be wrongly perceived as waning interest in sex, which can trigger feelings of rejection and resentment. By articulating feelings, couples can sort out the physiological factors from the emotional and relationship issues, and address each appropriately.
Once the honeymoon is over, almost every couple has to contend with boredom sooner or later. The person who was once so electrifyingly mysterious to you may become as comfortable — and as alluring — as an old shoe. While the deep trust and intimacy created from years of shared experiences are the building blocks of a truly loving relationship, such familiarity can take the edge off desire.
Sex may not even seem worth the trouble when you're facing the same old lovemaking routines. When sexual activity wanes, other types of physical affection often fade, too.
This lack of physical connection can extend the emotional distance between you and your partner. As a result, it's all the more difficult to resume sexual intimacy later on. But it's possible to do so. One frequent motivator for a person to have an affair is a quest for newness.
This yearning may arise from a need to banish midlife drudgery, a desire to find out what sex is like with someone else, or an urge to recapture the heart-pounding sexual highs of youth. Other times, an individual searches out a new partner to meet unfulfilled emotional or intellectual needs. An affair sometimes occurs because of sexual dysfunction in the marriage./p>
I dont know what can i do to make our marriage work. Wow and Wow I feel so bad about my life right now. I feel in love with an emotional man. He delivers unlimited storms seem like one after the other. Lord what am I missing in my own life. I have been faithful to this man.
About three years ago he was sent to prison I grew emotionally drained and decided to move on with my life. I really love this man but all he does is drain me out. He recently was released and we talked things over. We decided to get married this month and I thought things was going to work out. Well he decides to play mind games and tell me the day he was released he was picked up by someone he met while in prison and that they had been intimate and she is now pregnant.
I pray that I will overcome falling for emotional monsters. Thank you for the great article. It brought me a peace of mind, and I realize that I should accept the very friend of mine who suits all the criteria above, and at the same time maintain caution as to not let myself be dragged into her negative, immature behavior.
Or do anyone have suggestions? After reading this article Could relate it to myself and realised that iam an emotional immature person. Was not able to digest but its fact. Its a good job by publishing an aticle on the behaviour of emotional immaturity. But would be great if you can help out by guiding ways how to come out of it. I want to correct myself. I have culled a few articles that explain the process of emotional maturity.
It takes a lot of work to retrain ones brain and ones habits. I can totally see my daughter here, she is so immature, she is 25 yet she expects me to cook, clean, have her at home rent-free,..
Thank you so much for sharing this article. I have read it three times as I am currently trying to get over someone I recently let go for the very reasons in this article. It has been hard for me to let go because I noticed a lot of ambivalence in him. There were times when he would admit that he needed to grow up in relational matters and then he would always revert back to old ways and then when confronted, start blaming or out right denying the issue.
I felt torn because my love for him wanted to wait it out and stick with him but where do you draw the line? The personal comments on this site from people who say how hard it is to change this helps a bit. But we are over 30 years old. It just seems that waiting around for it would be futile. Like all of the commenters I also truly had my eyes opened. I honestly think god made me stumble upon this article.
We have two young kids who need both of us soo much right now. Hence I connot afford to sever this relationship now. I have sent this article to my wife and hope she gets herself to a councilor. Pls pray for me. Just read this article now after writing a blog about my experience with an emotionally mature man. Thanks for writing it. So good I had to share it! I have been in a relationship with an emotionally immature man for 4 years.
He bullies to get his own way, is completely selfish and blames everyone but himself. Most frustrating , lonely place to be. Time to reclaim my life. What an incredible article. Thank you for providing insight into this type of individual.
When I got married I had no idea what I was getting into. I am married to this type of person and all these years I thought there was something wrong with me but realized a couple years ago that it was not all me and that his mother and sister share this same trait at a toxic level.
Our children see this but I stay strong and consistently teach them to own up to their actions and to see things through. A thousand times thank you, I will consistently refer back to this article for strength.
What a great and insightful article but sadly it made me me cry. It has made me come to the conclusion that my husband and father of our 9 year old son is very emotionally immature. I have wanted a separation for quite a while now but have no idea how to go about it since I will not be dealing with a mature, rational person..
I feel trapped and suffocated and my heart aches for my son. Wow, that was very informative. At first J said for us to get counseling bt always has an excuse. I get counseling from christian preachers daily. Sadly many of us have been involved with emotionally immature, overly self-absorbed, narcissitic others.
Again, my options as a small child were very limited. I left at 18 by joining the military. But, out of a sense of obligation and with some hope that she would improve and grow as a person, I maintained a relationship with her sent money home, phone calls, regular visits when I had vacation days, etc.
If I had a time machine to go back and do it over again, that is the choice I would make. Too late now, the damage has already been done and I am still dealing with issues she helped create in my psyche.
I feel so much better after reading this article and the replies. My 26 year old adopted daughter is a poster child for this disorder. She has never really dealt with issues even though she has seen therapists since high school. Now she is back living with us in an apartment in the basement of our home after sabotaging a two year live in relationship with a really good guy.
She has never been able to be alone. And is self absorbed, and always has been. I pray she makes some break through with present therapist. And she is now an adult. I need to detach from her drama and that is so difficult as a mom.
I should probably seek out therapy myself. What a hard road for all. My heart goes out to everyone here. My father is an emotionally immature adult, and still at age 78, shows the tell tale signs. He also has OCD, and was abused as a child himself, having grown up during the depression, he was seen as a burden, along with his 4 siblings. Me and my brothers have learned how NOT to be a parent from him, and thankfully none of us share the emotional immaturity, except me being the only girl, took on the role of rescuer for such self-absorbed immature men.
He may also be bi-polar. Naturally since I am wired to fix my relationship with my father, I am always attracted to this kind of man, and now I have learned to recognize that whenever I am immediately attracted to someone and it is a supercharged spark, I must RUN. But you know what always ends up happening?
I feel my life essence draining away as if they are sucking the blood out of my bones. Have you ever been blamed for giving a gift? Or sending it too late or to the wrong address? I actually keep a blog of reasons why I should leave.
But staying will invite more abuse. And yet I keep going back. Why do I still love a man who hurts me? I need help, I know. Did u ever leave? I feel your pain. The sensitive sweet side of my bf is all I can think about when I debate leaving him. I am actually an emotionally immature man, I want and need help, any books, articles or a place to start, where I can get started in a path to maturity?
I was raised a roman catholic and suffered emotionally and physically at the hands of cruel clergy members. I was oppressed, depressed, anxiety ridden, and I felt tremendous resentment for being treated so unkindly. I learned how to take control of my inner self and accept life as it is, and to realize just how temporary and impermanent everything is.
I only look back at the happy times that I can remember with my family, friends, activities, etc. Those happier times will always put a grin on my old face: Most importantly we all must learn to coexist with others. There are tyrants in this world, but dropping bombs and killing people solves nothing.
These atrocities occur due to misunderstandings and failure to discuss matters in a calm and rational manner. Just imagine if people would talk things out instead of lashing out.
But for the limited time we all have on planet earth may we all live each day with love in our hearts, be productive, and help our fellow person. Thank you so much for this! So insightful and honest. I was in a relationship with an immature boy man for many years. When I think back, it actually makes me sick. Everything you say in this, is totally and sadly, true! What was I thinking??? What if you have a partner who is emotionally immature and challenged: I am left with no choice now. What do i do.
I am in the same situation although, they might be two different people I believe we might be going through the same thing. The hardest part for you will be to accept this within your heart and let him go. Not because you want to leave them but because they will realize at the end of the day that they need to change mentally. My girlfriend of 6 years does not have any control over her emotions. She tries so hard to be strong minded and to supress them but she always gives in. I support her and listen to her and I love her but she does have her moments where she is crazy in love with me or very happy and out of nowhere she finds a defect in me which leads her to break up.
She has broken up with me many times in the past. She wants to be independent and learn how to do things her way but has broken up with me again. I want to help her but I think the best thing to do is to do absolutely nothing.
I do not know if I am doing the correct thing or if i am making amistake but in order for her to mentally grow and mature I think she needs to find herself and see the greatness within her and how she can accomplish many things with me not around.
The independence should bring the best within her because she does not feel like she can do things alone. I read many of these and I am dumbfounded as to how so many mirror my relationship. I am 33 years old and my bf is We have been together 2 years and it just keeps getting worse.
He was so adamant. I have even talked to exes and asked their opinions and they all thought I was joking. HaS anyone gone through similar to give me advice? An adult boy throwing a tantruM. A narcist has called me narcist while I am on the other end of empathy spectrum. And an abusive man talked to me about boundaries just when I knew it was about time I restricted his access into my affairs.
Weird or gaslight was what I felt. This article has confirmed for me that I am emotionally immature. I am a woman in my 40s and have had difficulty with relationships right from the beginning. While its possible that my family loved me, there was no evidence of this being fact. There was never any warmth or any sense of sincere feeling. I spent my life running. Running from my family, from the coldness, from the unrelenting void of lovelessness.
Of course, a trail of hurt friends and lovers is not what I want. Years later i still hear people complain about my emotional immaturity and how i hurt them. This just makes me run faster and lose even more control.
Yes, everyone deserves to be loved, but when you are unloving and selfish and manipulative towards others then why should you expect them to love you back?
You need to take responsibility for your behaviour is a serious way, because after all you are a grown woman! I feel like the poster did take responsibility. It takes a lot of courage to admit you made mistakes. It takes a lot of courage to apologize for those mistakes, to go to therapy and try to fix yourself.
I applaud her for trying. I will say I only came upon this because I wanted to know how I ended up so emotionally immature and how to fix it… If I could blame it on a head injury, genetics, or emotional trauma growing up?
Nothing here has given me any solution to being a broken person.. It actually just seems like a hatred manifesto towards people who may be good to the core and selfless but never developed proper coping mechanisms followed by judgemental commenters remarking on how some past relationship failing must have been the exes emotional immaturity, blame shifting.
Also very disruptive as the only stable parental figure in my life has been her. My mother is old now and too set in her ways. I have been blaming myself for so many years, and as I read it, a light went on In my head. I showed it to my two sons and they were gob smacked. We now know What the problem is. Unfortunately, we have lost our grandchildren as she has completely brain-washed them. She will never admit her problem, so we very reluctantly have to distance ourselves.
Is there anything we can do to at least have some sort of a relationship. I am a victim of this emotional immaturity. I am poor in dealing to come out of it cos I knew wat it exactly was. Need to start working on it.
Got confidence that I can deal with it after reading ur article. Like everyone else I agree this is a wonderful article that puts everything I have been dealing with for 4 years into words. It is pure hell. I do wish the article had mentioned WHY an individual is emotionally immature.
In the case of the man-child I have been with it is because he never had to mature while growing up. He was spoiled rotten and never had to be accountable. Reacting, as most of us do on a daily basis, is a reflex response based on previous or similar experience with the issue at hand. The mature response is a critical thought process and analysis to issues…not a reactive process, of which most people I deal with, including family, are among those.
I took counseling to take control of the self destructive, subconscious programming that had plagued my life and began to learn to how to reprogram that thought process.
They have to decide to make those changes themselves. Maturing is a decision…not biological default. This is reminding me of my ex. We have a child. But I have to really hide away from her even when seeing the child. She is negative, dependent, clue less and believes in witchdoctors. This article gives words to many events I have passed through but could not make sense of. Those words would bother and depress me. Now I see why. Because I was expecting them to guide me in life and be mature enough not to be intrusive on my financial matters while all along they were so so immature.
I buried my emotions when I was a child of 11 because they were too painful to deal with and caused constant humiliation. It was the only way I could survive. The first step is the sincere desire to change; enough to take action. The second step is several fold; the practice of mindfulness.
If you become more mindful of things, you will become more aware of your feelings, and also your actions and reactions. Therapy can help you with this. Learning to be non-reactive. You can do it if you want to. In fact, it takes time. Try to change one thing at a time. His negativity is also becoming worse as he gets older. Life is too short and you deserve to smell beautiful roses. Example, my husband is 6 years younger, he is immature.
Never had a successful relationship except for his parents and siblings. People have left him. Emotionally, he is hyper-sensitive. He did not like the discussion. But, he wants me to be happy and life to be better for our family.
So off he went. The test was when he would need to go to an appointment by himself. He went by himself. Individual life can be good as an individual surrounded by family and friends. So if he is willing in genuine behavior to do the work to make life better now and in the future, think about it. Some people easily part after the children are grown, some divorce, some stay married, but live in separate abodes, and some remain married.
Some remain friends and some do not. It is much harder after so many years together, so do what you feel is right for you. You have to ask yourself if I am very sick and my children cannot take care of me, will he do the duties such as cleaning me, feeding me, taking me to the doctor, calling the ambulance, etc.? Will he do the things that count? Some people are so self-centered, they will not do these things for others and could careless if they suffered.
This is a very on-point article when dealing with immature individuals. A sequential article would be a nice addition. AMG, I was with two men who were abusive who would leave in the middle of arguments- walk out the door and drive away or turn around mid-sentence and slam the bedroom door.
Have you brought up how this makes you feel to that person? How do they react? This is a really nice article. First 8 years were fantastic, not perfect for sure, but the last years, I been emotionnaly childish and it cost me the love of my life. I need to work on myself , a day to day process that is excruciating. She endured so much for such a long time….
I have my pattern,,,seems like her pattern was falling in love with controlling individuals…. Part of attaining emotional maturity is to give up control and simply let things unfold how they would. If you are the attributes you said you were in the past years of marriage, then you were likely, also controlling.
Empathic people tend to fall for controlling people because they each balance each others emotional wounds. This is something I really understand but have a great deal of difficult describing here. I hope he reads all the comments, from posters who have been in relationships with someone emotionally immature and also from those suffering from it themselves.
Your amazing article describes our 4 year relationship perfectly sadly and some of the other posters comments have brought tears to my eyes. Someone described her partner as being like the ocean.. I had a constant 4 years of ALL the typical emotional immaturity described, with a special extra of portion of unpredictable and unprovoked jealous rages..
I want to help him. He wants to change, but will not wake up and take control and make changes, however small Truly, he showed more care, concern and attention his peace lily on the windowsill. This article is just what I needed to read, thank you so much! I searched online for something like it…and am thankful that I found it. I not only read the article — I also read almost all of the responses.
A lot of what I read was very helpful. I already knew a lot of it…but it had been awhile since I needed the tools in dealing with an emotionally immature person. So the many reminders of what to do will come in handy.
My situation is a little different from all that I read here. I met someone who appears to be, for the most part, emotionally immature in his personal life but not so much in his job. But I know a lot about his history often damaged due to emotional immaturity and I know a good deal about how he is now when he is not working which is often an exhibition of emotional immaturity.
Luckily, he has not really been all that terrible towards me, really. In fact, it seems there are things about me that he likes.
Maybe he has no way of knowing how to deal with any of that. I have no idea at this point. I needed these reminders and am grateful that I happened upon the right place to find them. When I read this article today, I saw my wife right there. That is the exact description of her: Thank you very much for the article.
This article is amazing! I fell in love with my now current wife in high school after dating her for years we decided to get married. And because I loved her so much I failed to see how emotionally immature she was and is.
I would do anything for her and bend over backwards to make her happy. Now we have been married for 4 months and we have had a lot of problems. The advesarialism eats at me and I am now almost about to give up. I have made the mistake to always running to her side whenever the smallest thing goes wrong. And if I stop I know she will take it out on me. I know that it is frustrating when a 50 year old is acting like a 15 year old emotionally—but what I do is try to set a good example—like you would for a child!
I have just read this and realised it is me word-for-word! Thank you for this wake-up call! I truly feel enlightened and will try to change my ways for the better!!
What if that person is your young adult child? Whether it be jobs, friendships, significant others or family members? Then loses it when called out. Not completely like child. I may hide it usually when I am on outside, but I seem like one of emotionally immature example.
However, I feel glad that I still have a few good friends who at least accept my characters. I am also not masculine, but feminine and geeky. I already know that long term healthy relationship is not favorable and I am not even expecting marriage. It is kinda lonely life and I can only dissolve stresses with my hobbies.
I was deeply distressed to face the reality of how unhealthy and unbalanced my interaction with them both was, and how dependent on giving them what they want all the time. I have distanced myself from my mother and try hard to keep a boundary with her and maintain some relationship.
My father was more extreme and I ended up becoming entirely estranged. It has caused me huge pain and regret for the loss of other associated relationships connected to him. I need to own my own part in it all. A partner may not openly display or express emotions, and that can be the sign of someone who is emotionally immature as well. This opens up the relationship to an abusive dynamic, one that often end in covert manipulation and gaslighting.
In this case, the person who is responding emotionally to their emotionally inept partner IS a victim, and will need emotional support from an outside party after helplessly trying to get it from their partner and oftentimes therapy to recover their self-esteem.
Not expressing the above dynamic I just described in articles about emotional immaturity is dangerous for ACTUAL victims of emotional abuse. Because of the ineptitude to discuss the dynamic I mentioned in articles such as yours, and because of the disproportionate amount of articles like yours out there, victims of emotional abuse will continue to endure further invalidation for their very real experiences. They will continue to be viewed by society as emotionally immature, when in actuality, they are victims of emotional abuse and may not ever know it, or be recognized as such.
You have no argument from me. When I moved the site, I unpublished everything and started over. As such, there are over articles in some state of unpublished while only 37 published. Anyway, the dynamic you are speaking about goes far beyond the realm of generalized emotional immaturity and gets into a more toxic behavior related to personality disordered individuals where silence, gaslighting, manipulation and control are key features in a dangerous dance.
I pretty much gave up writing for this site, even with all the drafts. I have so many other things on my plate. Hopefully I can consciously work to become more emotionally mature. Thank you for the insight. When I am talking about leaving him he takes our baby and runs.. No matter how the weather is no jacket or nothing. You must be logged in to post a comment. Below are some signs of emotional immaturity. One of the easiest ways to spot emotional immaturity is finger pointing.
People who are emotionally immature rarely assume accountability for problems in their lives. It is difficult to talk sense into someone who always blames others. They think they are right and the world is against them. Emotionally immature people are highly sensitive to things done to them, but are blind to the things they do to others. If they perceive you as wronging them in any way, they retaliate. Yet they expect you to deal with whatever they dish out, including rude and moody behavior.
You must accept them as they are, but they cannot accept you you are. More than likely, they often feel persecuted by any behavior they deem as unfair or insensitive.
Unfortunately, their perceptions are often very skewed and inaccurate. Emotionally immature people are victims. Bad things happen to them, but their poor choices play no part. Emotionally immature people enjoy playing the role of victim. They refuse to see how their poor choices often lead to consequences. As victims, they will often greatly distort reality, omitting certain things that happened or take words out of context. These emotionally challenged people will often pick partners who will side with them no matter what.
They often seek drama because drama allows them to reinforce their victim role and to seek revenge over things that did not play out as they had hoped. Relationships are often short lived. For the emotionally immature, it is challenging to maintain relationships of any substance. The reason is that such people often turn their friends into enemies-over the smallest perceived slight or threat. Compromise is almost impossible for the emotionally immature.

Your insecurities that were turned on after your first love slowly start to diminish, and you start to feel like yourself again. Everything happens for a reason. Every person that you encounter, every person you date, comes into your life and teaches you a lesson. Your first love is called just that because it is part of a series of "firsts. It was an experience, but I'm not going to stop eating steak because the first time I cooked it, it was too well done.
When your first love doesn't work, it's because it's generally your first and not your last. Your last love is someone you should truly cherish. Everyone always talks about the "one that got away. I was so in love with the idea of a first love that I started dating my first love 10 years later. I fell in love with the story of "us," and believed that he was my end all, be all. Yet, after a year and a half of trying to make it work, we both realized we didn't love each other, we weren't who we wanted to be with and we had very different goals.
He had tried to change me to make me more of a Mad Men -esque '60s housewife, and I was too busy reminding him that women were allowed "crazy things" like goals and opportunities. It was only when my second love came along that I started to realize how much better love is when you truly know yourself.
Everyone has their own baggage. In fact, I believe our baggage makes us interesting. When my second love came around, I had given up on relationships. I had decided that I would be faithful to my dreams and careers, and that I would be too busy to find a guy.
In fact, to prove that I was too busy, I got a dog. So, when this one came around, I wasn't expecting it. But, it's not to say I wasn't prepared.
Your first love gives you insight into relationships. It provides you with caution and stability so you're not knocked off kilter the next time. The second time around, you know what to expect. You know what to look for in someone you want to be with. You have the confidence to know what you want and know what you deserve. The relationship helps you prove to yourself that you can open up again, and you can find something truly amazing.
It won't exhaust you, be filled with drama and unsettle you. Because you've already been through the ringer, you know the warning signs. And soon, your heart will slowly heal from the baggage and the bruising of your first love.
It'll be bursting with happiness, and all your past caution will flee. And like with any recipe that you try, practice only leads to perfection.
