English term or phrase:Robert isn\'t my type of guy. He\'s still a college boy.
"Robert isn't my type of guy. He's still a college boy. He's too young and immature". This is from a dating game program on television but these kinds of programs in a language still give a person some idea of the colloquial or vernacular language often ignored by writers.
I was wondering what this sentence would be like in French? Any help with a translation is greatly appreciated. Thanks to all of you for your attention to this request and for your time.
Thank you JLDSF, Ben Baudoin, 1045 and yvette for your responses. I would hold out voting a little longer if I thought I was going to get more responses but I don't think that's going to happen. So I will give JLSSF the edge on this one. Ben and Yvette still had good answers but JLDSF's was the most explicative... that is, he did the most explaining.
