It's an interesting conversation going on.
It's just a matter of perception of what you consider mature and not mature. Justified behavior and unjustified behavior. 18 years old is not old, but it is also not young in the sense of understanding consequences.
ASR has always been a jerk to her and is pretty consistent with it. He also has moments of actual human behavior, with Anjali, with Khushi, with Mami and Mama and Akash. This flip side has been shown slowly and gradually throughout the show.
Khushi used to be consistent in her forwardness with ASR, and her avoidance of him. He would challenge her and she would rise to the occassion and give it back. He initiated and in those circumstances, she was absolutely right to not give him the time of day. But that was the old Khushi before she accepted the job at the RM. After that, I find her behavior puzzling.
She is shown to be very mature about certain things with all people, including ASR and the way she stopped him from continuing with his aukat rant (which I can't stand) and for apologizing. I think though this is where people find her incongruous. After realizing what kind of person ASR is - why do the very things you know will feed into his preconceived notion about you? As viewers we understand very well that ASR is not going to be one to let anything go and I believe Khushi understands that too. Lecturing him on his lack of character for live in, tricking him into aarti, and now planting the idea of marriage in La's head. She absolutely knew what she had done would have this effect, so yes, that is why it seems she is running from the consequences of her instigation.
And the CV's have further made it seem immature by having her avoid the conversation in a very calculating manner of faking fainting (I hope that there is a very good reason for this). Some people feel that it is quite within Khushi to avoid a fight, but the nuance in this particular instance is that she indeed had started it, whereas before ASR purposely brought the fight to her. I think this is what has rubbed most people in the wrong direction. At 18 years old, most people know, if you play with fire, you will get burned.
