I believe I'm the one who initially threw the word processing out there. And I guess that's not the right word either. What I was trying to say is that Edward is more a seventeen year old than just appearance. And not in regards to maturity, personality, or anything like that. There's no specific category for it I guess.
My whole argument was that Jake has more room for a natural progression through life. A lot of things with vampires are very permanent (or hard to change) like when Edward describes how vampires love - it's stronger and more intense than normal. So I feel that translates. Vampires, because of their very nature, do not change (and I use the word hesitantly) or adapt easily.

EASILY. Of course they change. It takes more time for a vampire to change - that doesn't mean it's impossible. But time is a different thing to them obviously.
This could be great boon when you talk about things like love. You have someone that will love you - literally - forever. But that slow to change thing obviously applies to more than just love. Your example of Jasper is perfect to both our points. They do indeed change. However, Jasper is the most recent vegetarian - seventy years ago (granted he was living off human blood for a lot longer so... and I'm not ragging on him; he's my favorite ).
Anyways, my entire point (and the theme of this thread) is that as a personal choice, Jake is my man. Change would simply be more natural to Jake. It would be easier and simpler. Personally, being slow to change just really scares me. I'm simply not that type of girl who can just be content with everything the way it is for any length of time. I'm a total fidget .
