At what age do guys mature? Not until they're 43, one study found! What do you think?

The video games, the practical jokes, the cartoon pajamas in some cases … it may seem like men never grow up.

It turns out, men don’t mature until they’re 43.

That’s according to a Nickelodeon UK study as reported by myfoxphilly.com.

In your opinion, when do guys mature?

    I'm 22, and I've been told I'm mature beyond my years. But I have been through more than a lot of people have, so that could be why.
  • taitaFalcon23 2013/07/04 18:42:42
    that sounds about right.. but based on a life about 78 years long, that's okay....

    whenever they feel like it, and you can be mature in different ways

    I'm older than 43 and if you call me mature 1 more time I will hold my breath until I turn blue.

    It depends on the person. To be honest, there's a BOY I met who is 10 years older than myself and is quite immature. The MAN I am dating now is only 2 years older than me and is one of the most mature PEOPLE I've ever MET.

    I turned 43 this very month, and I'm doing everything in my power to prove that study WRONG.

    Now if you'll excuse me I'm going to slip into my Southpark PJs, and play Fallout New Vegas.

    until I have finished with the first one.

    40ish sounds about right for most of the guys I know and have met!
  • myowncompass 2013/06/29 06:43:02
    I have living proof that some NEVER mature.

    Idk but studies are stupid. They probably just found a bunch of mature guys then found the 43 year olds then surveyed them. 14
  • asliyaseminbahar 2013/06/28 22:59:48
    I agree. 43 seems about right.
  • skorpios 2013/06/28 13:28:22 (edited)
    Wonder what changes at 43? grownups

    Men and women mature at their own pace depending on life experiences. Sadly, with how chaotic life is nowadays I've been seeing more and more people in their 20's clinging onto a more simpler time when they didn't have so much to worry about and for some that hinder their own self growth; and it's not just men, it's women too.
  • melly 2013/06/27 02:42:10
    in my studies, it shows that male frontal lobes don't fully develop until about 21 years old. and then they aren't fully able to use it correctly until mid to late 30's
  • David 2013/06/26 20:45:50
    So I am barely grown up.
  • WendyDarling 2013/06/26 20:24:28
    That's hard to generalize. Each person, man or woman, "matures" at their own rate. If the culture permits such immaturity, it becomes more rampant, and produces studies like this.
  • Darkstorm64 2013/06/25 23:22:31
    This is a sexist statement -__-. Everyone matures at different times.
  • MorbidCynic 2013/06/25 02:56:21 (edited)
    Some women never mature either. And a lot of the people here are pretty gullible and egocentric to agree with this study.
  • Richard 2013/06/24 02:01:32
    That's bull most men mature in there 20's!

    Is that word even in their vocabulary? Men never mature as they are forever looking for a teet or apron string to hang off of.

    I think you find maturity after raising a child....caring for someone else that is more important than you are...

    I guess the bigger question.....how do you define maturity?
  • myownco... tom C 2013/06/29 06:45:47
    How many men care for their child, and how many just babysit it?

    Everyone is different so everyone matures at a different time.
  • brichards719 2013/06/17 21:07:18
    never. and that's a good thing if you ask me.
  • jester 2013/06/17 21:00:34
    Rubbish. I think that maturity lies not in what you like, but in what you hold as priorities...
  • TKramar 2013/06/17 11:42:44
    It varies. Some actually mature in their 20s, but for others it takes longer. Some are still getting pulled over for drunk driving in their 60s.
  • myownco... TKramar 2013/06/29 06:46:47
    Truth is, alcoholics and drug addicts of either sex do not mature at all.

    Some people mature at the site of tragedy or suffering, some mature after learning about the world, some never mature at all.

    I am 52 and I still play video games and will not change because you have to act a certain way when you reach a certain age, kiss my ass.

    A rave for you, man. Anyone who equates gaming with immaturity is a clueless dunce.

    Its a way to unwind has well, I am not shooting the bad guy im shooting that jobs worth person that I had to deal with on that day.
  • DanKOzz Ian 2013/06/24 07:04:48
    People unwind in different ways... Some work on their cars, some drink beer, some watch movies, some play guitar... Everyone has a hobby or some sort of outlet.

    Whoever says that playing video games is immature, I do believe still have a ways to go before they grow up. These people lack understanding, a very important trait to being mature.
  • Ian DanKOzz 2013/06/24 12:35:04
    Thanks well said.
  • myownco... Ian 2013/06/29 06:51:44 (edited)
    Except pops, you and I get yelled at for the same behavior we are expected to excuse for this younger generation. I hang around in my panties or less and play on the computer most days. Gotta love retirement. OH! There's the difference, WE WORKED FOR A LIVING AT SOME POINT IN OUR LIVES.
