    But It Does.

    First, let's establish what "maturity" means. I am going to use the vernacular of the term, meaning "behaving in a manner expected of someone AT LEAST as old as the subject's age". Now, in our heads, let's build a matrix here. We have on the vertical axis how old the subject is...

    So Stop Accusing It.

    Look at Adele. She's 24. Then look at her songs.Now look at Carly Rae Jepson. She's 27. Now look at her songs.I love both artists. But one is clearly more mature than the other. And its not Carly.

    Honestly, love is love. As long as the ages are appropriate, I believe it's okay! For instance, when I was 14, I was in "love" with an 18. It doesn't matter how old, or how young...
