Age isn't just a number anymore. And if you think it is, you haven't been paying attention. As you mature, your experiences shape you as a person. Your interactions with those around you become more focused on enjoyment rather than creating an experience. You want to learn more, encounter more, and experience more... especially when it comes to socializing.
As you go through the same social situations over and over again, your brain starts to look for more engaging conversations, with deeper meaning. This actually affects how you respond to social interactions. In your 20s, you might be looking for a good laugh and a fun time. In your 30s, fewer things are funny to you, and you're more interested in a conversation. In your 40s, you do anything to avoid a hangover. As a matter of fact, when presented with different social situations at different ages, your mind has an instant reaction that tells you whether or not to avoid that situation (or how to escape from it). While everyone is different, you'd be surprised at how the human mind matures socially.
