Tybalt is still bitter about the Montagues crashing the party and he goes looking for a fight. Romeo tries to keep the peace by responding to Tybalt's request to fighting saying, "The reason that I have to love thee/ doth much excuse the appertaining rage" (3.1.59-60). Tybalt continues to poke for a fight and Mercutio steps in and begins to fight. It is obvious that Romeo does not want a fight to take place because while the fight is ongoing he is trying to stop them. After Tybalt kills Mercutio, Romeo goes after Tybalt and ends up killing him.
ROMEO Meaning, to curtsy. (Shakespeare 2.4. 48-56) This in the end led Mercutio having to fight and Romeo coming in the middle of it and trying to stop Tybalt by going in between them but that gave Tybalt the upper hand to stab and kill Mercutio.

In the tragedy Romeo and Juliet, the cast of characters have a variety of individual personalities. One of the main characters, Romeo, is characterized by his impulsiveness and unwavering loyalty. Romeo is depicted as impulsive throughout the play, leading to many unfavorable outcomes. This is first demonstrated when Tybalt tries to pick a fight with Romeo, but he rejects it. Tybalt then starts a fight with Mercutio, resulting in Mercutio's death, which provokes Romeo to take revenge by killing Tybalt.
One reason Romeo was impulsive is because he fell in love with Juliet and married her only a day after meeting her. Romeo claimed to be in love with Juliet the first time that he saw her and immediately began obsessing over her. He kissed her and began talking about marrying her the night that they met.
Romeo allows his thirst for revenge to cloud his logical reasoning when he kills Tybalt who has just murdered Mercutio, Romeo’s best friend. Mercutio defends Romeo against Tybalt’s insults with comebacks and later his sword. As Romeo attempts to intervene, Mercutio is stabbed by Tybalt and Romeo is enraged. Once he finds out from Benvolio that the wound had killed him, Romeo,”Who had but newly entertained revenge,” (III.i.173), kills Tybalt and flees the scene. Romeo declined to
Some will argue that Romeo did not lead to his own downfall that instead Juliet is responsible for Romeo 's downfall. On the other hand, Juliet isn 't the guilty one because Romeo hadn 't taken the time to find out what truly had happened to Juliet and immediately decided to kill himself. According to Laurence Steinberg, “It doesn’t mean adolescents can’t make a rational decision or appreciate the difference between right and wrong,” he said. “It does mean, particularly when confronted with stressful or emotional decisions, they are more likely to act impulsively, on instinct, without fully understanding or analyzing the consequences of their actions” (Teens Brains Hold key to their Impulsiveness). Concluding, Romeo wasn’t sure about what the right decision was so he just did whatever the first thing that came to mind, thus proving how he was impulsive.
In the play Romeo and Juliet one of the main characters, Romeo, is a rather impulsive fellow who acts on what he sees and feels. He falls in love in the blink of an eye and just as fast he can get over it. He is always impulsive but when he finds himself in love his impulsiveness doubles.

¨For never was a story of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo¨. In Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare is a story of two lovers who take their life all because of a misunderstanding.

The Capulets forced Juliet to marry Paris, the constant fighting made them want to keep the marriage secret, and made Romeo and Juliet to scared to say anything.
Romeo and Juliet make hormonal and impulsive decisions that show their immaturity. After Tybalt kills Mercutio, Romeo cannot control his emotions and feels the need for revenge. He says, “Alive in triumph, and Mercutio slain! Away to heaven, respective lenity, and fire-eyed fury be my conduct now”(3.1.127-129). Part of being mature is the ability to control strong emotions, and here Romeo tells us that he is letting his fury guide his actions.
Age plays a significant role on decision-making not only in Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet but also in modern times. In the play, Romeo and Juliet are only young teenagers which influences on making childish and no-thought decisions. This is shown In Act 2 where Romeo is depressed because Rosaline, who he had confessed his love to has rejected him, and refuses to crash the Capulet’s party. It’s not until his friends Mercutio and Benvolio force him to go when he lays his eyes upon Juliet and proceeds to forget about his love and fall in love with Juliet instead.
