i'm asking you if you think that childish people are annoying or it's the way they are nothing to say about it or it's cute and funny... i'm childish myself and i know some people didn't like me because of that... i made the choice of staying a "child" when i saw how the adult world can be cruel... when adults talked back then they weren't happy in this world ! imaybe because they have given up their innocence, their dreams, their capacity of being happy... i didn't wanted to be part of adult world in a way that i will keep what's important : innocence, being amazed by something, believe in something and keep my power to imagine things... i'm not irreponsible and i don't think i'm this kind of girl, i just want to keep my child soul in me and not let it go... so, what's your opinion ?

i am not 20 years old so i cant really give you a good answer, but i think a lot of kids my age get turned off by people acting childish because we r all trying to grow up inside. i also think that it is a bad thing to totally let go of being childish and fun. many people would love to be your friend for the fact that you aren't totally grown up. you can still be childish and show maturity. :)

Maybe you should make a balance. Be serious but not too serious. Be loose but not too loose you know?

i agree with that. it's not BAD to be childish, but not all the time. for me, i'm childish with my siblings and my friends, but i know when to act my age. personally, all of my friends have that same trait... we all joke around with each other, but we know when to act out age. if someone is TOO childish, they might get on my nerves, but i haven't really had that experiance yet, so i'm just speculating.

Being childish is nothing, it's another entertainment for me . Almost like bothering people.

You can't help who you are, only improve on what you already have. I don't think childishness is a bad thing - only when used too often, the same as anything else. Nobody likes a totally serious person all the time, either. Also, not all childish things are bad. A child might be immature at times, but there are good qualities in there, too - did you know a child can make so many people happy? What could be more awesome than that?

Well, its not bad but if you overdo it then it may appear annoying to some people. Im childish, but im 16 so,yeah. Cant really tell how i will be in 4 years. :)

it would depend on the person, like if he/she had a good attitude or somthing then i would come to expect it, but if there doing it just to get attention or to be anoying then it's just not cool..

I guess in some ways being childish keeps me young, but there are times when I gotta be serious....and I know it can defnintely turn people off. Therefore I only express my inner child with close friends who know me well, but still "act my age" with other people. Haha...

yeah...i agree with you too !!! ^^ i'm not childish all the time of course and i'm a serious girl (women?) : i don't drink too much or smoke or break laws/rules... i'm shy so, i don't attract to much attention but my friends and family know me like i am... i don't hate myself and that part of me, i assume this part but i'm wondering how people react to it !

Perhaps "child-like" would be a better word. You know, the ones who keep their minds open and are still easily amazed. Yep, they make good company.

People who act childish, on the other hand, is a lot I'd love to hate. They speak in this irritating, baby-ish voices and persuade you to submission with horrific and incessant cooing. And they never grow out of it. *sigh*

yeah... i think you're right Revue !! i'm not born english so i don't master all the subtilities of the language ^^ it's more appropriate for me to say that i stayed like a child. For exemple, i can't help myself to Sream a BIG HUGE "sooooo cuuuteee" every time i see a dog i like and i like teedy bears very much, my room is full of them... that's my extremities in the "child-like" attitud.

You're a 20 year old lady right? Hmmm... I don't think there's anything wrong with saying "Soooooo cuuuuteeee" everytime you see cute stuff.

*in whispers* In fact, I think that's kinda cute... don't tell people that...

*ahem* so... being a more child-like and innocent person is not a bad thing... I prefer girls to be a bit more child-like... I'm also a bit childish and playful for my age...

How is the adult world cruel? O_o Treats you the same way no matter how you act, so you shouldn't let it dictate who you are and you shouldn't have to pointedly avoid acting "adult" and be "childish".

It isn't so much having a "child-like innocence" as it is wanting to learn new things. It's like Revue said, keeping an open mind. No adult knows everything, there's always something new to see and experience and that's exciting stuff.

So you can go about having fun and enjoying life without annoying the people around with a "don't want to grow up" attitude.

"Don't want to grow up" is the wrong kinda attitude to adopt... But "living life without annoying the people around you" shouldn't be a main concern either... The important thing to realize here is this... No matter how you act, there is bound to be people who disapprove. "People who refuse to grow up" just happen to be one of those more disliked ones.

Seriously though, how can anyone say how a person should act at any given age? I personally think that as long as you're comfortable with how you're acting and how you're doing then you should not be concerned with what other people think of you. As I said earlier, I don't think there is anything wrong with the way you're acting for a 20 year old so don't let what other people say change your opinion on things...

I think that it is OK to act Childish as long as it's at the good time and place. But there are other times when you do need to act serious. For instance, If you're sitting there chilling with friends, and goofing off, that's a good time to acrt Childish, but if you're at a job interveiw or something important like that, than u should act more serious.

Sometimes I act childish too, but most of the time people who constantly whine/flirt/act innocent/don't act their age annoy me. I mean, I'm not their baby-sitter, so drop the act already. I guess I just don't like to be put in the position of a mature person when people around me act like 4-year-olds. Sometimes I even see it as a personal put-down when people deliberately try to act young. That's just how I feel about the issue.

People who can't act childish are boring. Of course sometimes they can go overboard and become annoying. It’s a thing where you need to know a limit for your actions as not all of us like children.

Depends on the mood I'm in -- usually I'm insanely serious and quiet. Probably a little grumpy, too...
But when I get happy it's like I'm a little kid -- I like tackle people, too. ^^;

It's a balance, but don't change yourself for other people. There's always something about a person that's endearing and strong -- not always in the personality, sometimes in the heart.

But I really don't want to grow up. It's like, the older I get, the more complications there are in my life. I want things to just go back to when my main concern was who to be partners with in ballet class.
I can be serious when I want to, but normally I'm pretty happy-go-lucky and childish. It doesn't bother me or anybody else, and I guess I'll just let things take its course and maybe I'll grow out of it. But at the moment, being childish is fun and until I'm too old to be childish, I'll hold on to my "inner child" XD.
