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?While a girl will do just about anything to turn heads, women know that respect is the most important thing.
Girls are dependent on others for everything. A woman is independent, and knows how to get things done by herself.
Girls think they know it all, while women know that there’s always value in being open to learning something new.
Girls tend to party like they can’t stop, whereas women know their limits — and know how to prevent a hangover.
Girls let emotions get the best of them, while women know how to process their feelings and funnel them into a productive outlet.
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.
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.
A woman knows how to spend her free time productively, whereas girls often have a lot of time to waste.
Girls will often be preoccupied with their health and eating, whereas women are confident about their eating choices.
A grown woman will always share her secrets with you — that is, if you’ve earned her trust.
Grown women know that modesty in dressing can be more effective in getting people’s respect than showing off.
Girls often feel they should be treated like princesses, while women demand respect without getting ornery about it.
Grown women know that entertainment spans far beyond the realm of Netflix and OnDemand.
Women like to be strong and can be independent, whereas some girls will rely on someone else to take care of them.
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.
