i think that when it comes to LOVE he's certainly 17, but when it comes to emotions and such he claims to be so much "older" than everyone else, at least that's how he come off.

Second of all he treats Bella with respect, yes hes overprotecctive but that doesnt make it immature. I would trade my 26 year old boyfriend with a 17 yr old Edward right now. trust me
