  • Both "girl" and "woman" are abstractions. There's no fixed definition for what is a girl or what is a woman, you'll get a dozen different answers from a dozen people, because it's something that depends on your perspective. If it bothers you to feel like a little girl, that's something worth exploring. Why does it bother you? What expectations do you have for yourself? Are you worried about what others think of you? Do you feel like you should be more "mature" than you are? The quickest way to become unhappy is to start believing that you should be some way other than the way you are.
  • I know how you feel. I felt silly calling myself a woman until I was in my early 30's. I just never felt that grown up until then, even though I was married and a mom.
  • I'm 47 and I still feel like a little girl most of the time. I feel like I'm pretending to be a grown up.
  • 1) "Womanhood is the period in a female's life after she has transitioned from girlhood, at least physically, having passed the age of menarche. Many cultures have rites of passage to symbolize a woman's coming of age, such as confirmation in some branches of Christianity, bat mitzvah in Judaism, or even just the custom of a special celebration for a certain birthday (generally between 12 and 21)." Source and further information: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Woman 2) How you feel could be very different, at least at times: I once talked to an old aunt of mine, who was over 80, and she told me that she sometimes was feeling again like a little girl.
  • That's funny... I'm 40 and I still feel like a little boy. I hope hat continues until It's time to leave.
  • When she begins menstruating, a woman is no longer a girl.
  • i am going to be 35 sunday and I think I felt like I was a true woman and grown up around 30.
  • I am 30 years old, and I have yet to feel like a woman. I don't think there is actually a set age.
  • I'm almost 26 and in too many ways I am still a little girl. I have a very grown-up job, so at work I am a woman... ...but off the job, I still see myself as a little girl. I wish I had an answer for you...I don't.

  • It is more about maturity and status in life. I say that a woman is truly independent, though you can do that while living with your parents, given that you can just crash there and live as you want with the money you earn.
  • I am 26 and in many ways feel the same. Many of my friends do too. I think it's something we go through..it's nice to not be alone in this.
