    24 Signs You're More Mature Than You Think

    Wait what? When did this happen?

    No more long hours for minimum wage!

    And you care about having good credit.

    3. If you don't do laundry, you'll have nothing to wear.

    And you haven't dyed any of your white clothes pink in forever!

    4. And if you don't go to the supermarket, you may starve.

    You probably also have a weekly shopping list you use!

    5. You can cook a meal from scratch.

    Not Easy Mac or Ramen! Real food!

    6. And you try to eat healthy meals.

    Not making 2 a.m. runs to Taco Bell? Your bowels will thank you!

    7. If you don't do the dishes they will never get done.

    May I suggested paper plates?

    8. You follow an exercise routine.

    giphy.com

    Can't let that gym membership go to waste!

    9. You pay taxes and understand why you have to pay them.

    Like legitimately. Not for the stupid part-time job you had in high school.

    10. You have to pay for rent.

    11. And cable...

    12. And Internet...

    13. And your cell phone bill.

    So that's where all of the paychecks go...

    14. For the holidays you ask for practical gifts.

    giphy.com

    A new frying pan. New tires. Toilet paper.

    15. You're perfectly happy in a long term relationship.

    giphy.com

    One night stands and drunk hook ups? Not interested.

    16. Maybe you're even engaged or married!

    giphy.com

    That's a real commitment, congrats!

    17. Are you thinking about starting a family?

    giphy.com

    Because if you are you're 100% an adult. Unless you're only trying to get on MTV's Teen Mom.

    18. You're not into binge drinking anymore, but you live for a glass of white wine.

    giphy.com

    Keeping it classy.

    19. You're interested in politics and can discuss your points of view.

    giphy.com

    You call them to chat and actually share things about your personal life with them. BFFS!

    giphy.com

    By this point you know who your real friends are.
