Many women talk about dating a “mature man”. What they’re really referring to is “emotional maturity.” An emotionally mature man is a man who won’t shut you out the minute things get stressful in his life.
Emotionally mature men are willing to show their feelings; and more importantly, they’re able to allow the woman in their life to “see” them even when they’re going through a difficult time. But how can you tell whether a man is emotionally mature and will stick it out with you through the inevitable ups and downs in every relationship? You need to look at how he handles three key areas in his life…
Is the man able to handle adversity, criticism or even intense politics at work and remain level headed, relatively calm, or even compassionate? Or is he spiteful, does he talk about problems instead of thinking about solutions and how to improve personal dynamics in his work life and relationships? Compassion and the ability to handle complex mental and emotional situations without coming unglued or doing negative or harmful things to other people is one of the best signs of emotional maturity – and sensitivity as well.
