It burns dimly when you're together, but you wave it off with sex and constant chatter. Immature relationships are formed by two incomplete people. They are two people looking for something that can't be found in another person.

They never feel that motivation to leave each other only to come back more successful and more determined to make a life for the two of them. Mature couples do not spend their days bickering over a screen.When they have something to work out, they do it face to face — where the meanings can't be misconstrued by emojis and auto correct.
