Lesbian generation gap questions

So my question is you think there is a generation gap between lesbians or is it simply a question of maturity? Do women who are 40+ act any differently than women who are 25? Do we all make the same mistakes or bad choices despite the age difference?

Does one's age signify levelheadedness and maturity?

First off...I know MULTIPLE age 40+ women who occasionally, if not often, exhibit the maturity level of my favorite four-year-old. Don't get me wrong; there is nothing wrong with letting our inner child out occasionally. It's when 40 year-olds approach life as a continuum of such fun and freedom such as they embraced as 22-year olds that it gets a bit tiresome. Or maybe that's the control freak 'i-must-fix-them' in me coming out.

That said, I would say we definitely all have the abiltiy to make the mistakes, the bad choices (I myself have returned more than one pair of shoes; though I don't have anywhere near as many shoes of the metaphoric (is that a word???) kind.

So no, age does not = maturity. Experience matters, however. (And if you are a Cincinnatian reading this, I did not steal that line from the hospital billboard along the highways.)And if our lives, lesbian or not, are looked at as a journey, one would expect we'd learn from our travels. Otherwise, what's the point?
