== == * Physical maturity is when you enter into puberty and the guys start putting muscle on and the girls develop curves and breasts. Emotionally mature people are ones that can communicate well with others; are honest, loyal, have feelings for others pain and have learned from their past mistakes. They are able to retain a good relationship with the opposite sex by being thoughtful, kind, interested in that person's well being and feeling totally comfortable with them, or, they will know immediately the person they are with is not treating them well and move on. There actually is NO age limit to maturity on most levels. I have met kids from 10 + that I call "old souls" that show much more maturity than some people my age. * When you are physically mature it means your body is fully developed. When you are emotionally mature you act mature.

Can a guy be mentally mature but emotionally immature and what is better?

They are the same thing. Maturity is a continuum, a place along a scale, and there are many different kinds. There is no essential difference between "mentally" mature and "emotionally" mature. A person can be mature in, say, matters of business, but behave like a child in personal relationships. Both are matters of emotional and social maturity. The desirable condition is a level of overall maturity that is appropriate for a person's age. That takes care of the entire picture.
