Half of us don't feel grown up until we're 25

NEARLY half of people don't feel 'grown up' until they reach the age of 25, according to a poll.

Findings from the survey showed that people are beginning to delay taking on the roles and responsibilities that adulthood brings.

According to the British poll, 47pc do not feel like a responsible grown up in all areas of life until the age of 25, with 33pc not feeling like an adult until they are 26 or older.

And 49pc of those that do not feel like a grown up believe they will never feel grown up.

The number one life stage at which most started to feel financially responsible was upon getting their first job (29pc).
