Girl or woman?

8
One guy corrected me when I made a comment about the girls he dates. "Women," he said. "I date women. I don't date girls."

Britney Spears sang I'm not a girl, not yet a woman.

What's the difference between a girl and a woman?
When does a girl become a woman?

I think a girl becomes a woman when there's a change of attitude from being naive and childlike to being wise and mature.

I'm not a girl; I am a woman :D

Yu-Kym,

Another very profound and provactive question. Many books, magazine articles, and even movies attempt to anwser this.

I dare say that I mostly agree with you statement; "... a girl becomes a woman when there's a change of attitude from being naive and childlike to being wise and mature.

A girl does not suddenly become a women, and a real women never forgets what it is like to a girl and even a young girl.

Wisdom and maturity!

Sigh, I hope to someday possess a little of both.

There are reflective times when I look back and wonder??

OTOH, my wife and a couple very young, 4yr and 2yr old nieces have taught me so much more than I ever thought I could know about what goes into a women, and the young ones have the simple beauty, charm, joy, and pure love that comes from young children.

Even Ms. Loh has given me new insights into that unique person, a women.

We never become truly spiritual by sitting down and wishing to become so. You must undertake something so great that you cannot accomplish it unaided.

A girl is a person who doesn't sleep around. A woman is one who sleeps with a different man every night.

Anon, your definition of the difference between a women and girl is the most degrading bilge I have read here!

A women need not be a slut and sleep around with a different man every night, in fact such behaviour is the definition of slut.

Anon, words have meaning.

Please Ms. Loh let us know your opinion!

Oh, in USA, their culture is different. Promiscuity and free sex gives girls and women so much "human rights" (US is big on human rights, you know) that they can sleep with different men every night. There is also the new invention by US of the 'Open Marriage" where each partner is open to sleep with anyone and anywhere. The matrimonial home is not where any partner may sleep.

There is also the wonderful freedom of increasing abortions, teenage pregnancies, infanticides, selling babies for huge profits and you can read all these by simply googling. These wondrous activities put a huge strain on the public purse, so, they go burst!

Anon, you do task me.

The so called women's movement in the States has done more to confuse young girls about what is to be a women.

Get a dose of reality. Few women, and none I know of, make a point to sleep with a different man every night. Having a different women to sleep with every night is a huge male fantasy for many men all over this world. That fantasy is not unique to the States, Canada, Europe or SG.

Abortions, infanticide, have corrupted what it means to be a women.

IMHO abortion remains a great crime against humanity.

Male and marketing fantasies drive the image of the easy women - female, and I apologize to all WOMEN for the insult, sex without consequence or responsibility.

Commercials show writhing models aimed at selling products for men.

Even Yu-Kym, who is against marriage, and leery of real love, has never stated her goal is to sleep with a new man every night.

Ms. Loh has stated many times that she has standards for what she expects from a man. Expectations that a girl cannot not and would not be able to express.

To those reading this who want to live in a fantasy world who desire or even seek out different women every night, it is time to grow up and examine what you are doing with your life. Such boys are likely the type who embellish to their friends what happens every evening, that every girl they leave a club with is bedded, when most never achieve that carnal goal.

Time to realize that the females who do offer themselves up for different men as often as possible are few, and such females fail when it comes to being a women.

Anon, Googe the term velina, I think you will find a culture to your liking.

Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections but instantly set about remedying them -- every day begin the task anew.

I like my partner to be both a girl and a woman, a time to be a girl and a time to be a woman. Times to be childish and times to be serious.

Both have exciting attributes. Combinations and balance are always great qualities.
