J-Lo says men are 'useless' before the age of 33, and we'd believe it yeah
Seems legit, yeah.
Jennifer Lopez has said that men are "useless" until the age of 33, and she might actually be onto something.
Or, she is. She definitely is.
The Hustlers star was playing a game of Swipe Sessions as part of Tinder's new video series when she made the incredibly true and not at all debatable assertion.
While trying to find 29-year-old Brooke a date via the app, the pair swiped by numerous lads, some who were grand, some who weren't, some who had: "If you store ketchup in the refrigerator, it's not going to work out" in their bios.
"Guys, until they're 33, are really useless," said J-Lo as they passed man after man who unfortunately weren't making the cut age-wise... or otherwise, tbh.
Brooke had said that she wanted someone who could "chop wood" - and while she may not have found the burly, plaid-wearing man of her dreams, she did get some solid J-Lo dating advice.
And tbh, that's all any of us could ever hope to achieve.
And while we absolutely shouldn't be excusing lads for their questionable behaviour just because they're in their 20s, as it turns out, there is actually some truth to the presumption that girls mature faster than boys.
A 2013 UK study showed that young girls tend to optimise brain connections a lot sooner in life than young boys do.
As we make the move from childhood to adulthood, the brain undergoes a myriad of massive changes in order to make it easier for us to adapt to our environments.
One major change that most of us had to adapt to in the twenty first century was the explosion of social media, so it makes sense that if boys are less able to optimise brain connections earlier, they're probably more likely to struggle to communicate.
Obviously, this study can (and should) be questioned, given that the distinction between boy brains and girl brains isn't all that clear cut.
Rather, it's all on a spectrum, meaning that someone who is born as a girl can of course have boy-brain tendencies, and the other way around.
At the same time though, a lot of lads we know in their early (and late, sure, why not?) 20s would absolutely fall into this boy brain category.
