Elementalist or Mesmer?

I would recommend sticking with mesmer for now since if you play ele you might get a false sense of excitement and probably dissapointed later. You can always make a third toon
As in PvP, both are fun but Mesmer is a little easier to be effective

If you hate stance dancing, I'd suggest going mesmer.

ele is more fun because the gameplay is very "fast and furious", reminds me of fire mage in WoW. you do decent damage and have good survivabilty, but if you mess up at any time, then you are pretty much dead. this class has quite a steep learning curve though, but once you learn it becomes incredibly fun.
mesmer is also quite fun to play although it does not take as much skill as ele. you are quite tanky, so it is much more forgiving if you mess up since you can just stealth away from danger, or shatter F4 to become immune. i quite liked how there were soooo many viable builds for the mesmer, so it can be quite fun exploring all the options and finding a build that suits your playstyle.
they are both amazing & fun classes, but its just whatever 'style' you prefer, because they both have the same level of DPS
exciting ADHD caffeine frenzy 'edge of your seat' style = elementalist
slower, tankier and extremely disruptive/annoying for your enemies = mesmer
also, ele has more healing spells, whereas the mesmer has more stun/daze spells. both can give good support to your team.

My main is Ele so I don't actually remember leveling him as I played him all though BWE's and from release.
I will never like Mesmers as much as I like Elementalists, but both are very fun in a unique way. And Ele's aren't squishy, contrary to people's opinion, You just need to set it up properly while all you gotta do for Mesmers is to go full Berserk because their auto doesn't dealmuch damage and main source of damage is though phantasms or shatter.
IMO I'd go for Ele but I can see the appeal mesmers have.
