Why does it seem to take women longer than men to mature these days ?

Typically women mature faster than men and men don’t catch up to women’s maturity levels until a man is about 30 years old. But nowadays it seems like most men are maturing quicker than women, a lot of women are still living at home with their parents at 25-30 years old and parents are coddling them and they are addicted to social media and Snapchat and partying, while men are buckled down and preparing for their future and building their careers and taking online classes during the Covid shutdown in computer programming and other tech subjects. 


A lot of 25-30 year old women I know still work part time jobs and live with their parents, while mean are busting their butt in their careers trying to advance, they live on their own etc

Update 2:

And a lot of these women will drop a guy who has a full time job because he doesn’t “spend enough time with her” meanwhile he has to work and unless she wants to marry a deadbeat, she’s going to have to accept that men have to work 40-50 hours a week to pay the bills

    Women are often less anxious to move out than are men because they're usually less worried about being able to bring home strangers from a bar and the like. Plus there's still a bit of a stigma about guys living at home until they're 30. But if you actually think about the priorities of these Millennials you might flip the script and think that the one saving up money and willing to forego the one-night stands might actually be more mature than the one willing to live in the back of a van just so he can have privacy. Just sayin'.

    Where did you get your information? 

    Pew Research Center Social & Demographic Trends

    Among young adults, living arrangements differ significantly by gender. 

    For men ages 18 to 34, living at home with mom and/or dad has been the dominant living arrangement since 2009. In 2014, 28% of young men were living with a spouse or partner in their own home, while 35% were living in the home of their parent(s). 

    For their part, young women are on the cusp of crossing over this threshold: They are still more likely to be living with a spouse or romantic partner (35%) than they are to be living with their parent(s) (29%). 3
