Hi. I've been dating my girlfriend for more than two years now. I'm an adult but she'll just turn 18 this month. The thing is, I know she's immature and she is naiive but I try to treat her like someone who is at my age level but I've found out that she doesn't deserve such tretment nd she deserves to me treated like an immature girl which she is. I need tips on how to treat her like a child nd make her see me as someone who is way more mature than she is

Hello Anonymous,

I would like to welcome you to the EmpowHER community and thank you for reaching out to us to help you with your relationship issue.

I sense frustration and maybe some anger from your words. Treating an 18 year old girl like a child and making her feel inferior to you is not a good way to build and maintain a relationship.

Anonymous, just how old are you? Can you give specific examples of how your girlfriend acts immaturely and has proven to you that she doesn't deserve to be treated as someone at your age level?

I would like to explore this with you.
