My thoughts on imprinting . . . . (This is unfamiliar ground for me so please be gentle) In trying to answer this question, I had to ask myself, "What is the difference between the ways a normal person falls in love versus an imprinted couple?" And this is what I've come up with . . . Well, besides ...

So says your opinion. Which you are totally entitled to. And I'm entitled to think it's wrong. Which I clearly do. But that's just it. These are our opinions. So maybe it would help some if we make our future points without speaking in such sweeping generalizations? I'm sure you're much entitled to...

At first she lived for other people- Charlie, Jake, her mom- because that is who Bella is. But then she did slowly begin to move on. Which, IMO, does not mean her love was at all less than Edward's... it just means she is a stronger person. And same with her being able to fall in love with Jake. In...

They love one another like I love chocolate. I say I love chocolate but I really love myself, and chocolate makes me happy. Yes, you got it, it can easily be interpreted that the same thing goes on with Bella and Edward. Deeper? Sure, a drug addict 'loves' his drugs more than I love chocolate. Same...

Why does 'love' and 'need' have to be separate? Since people with drug addictions need drugs but don't love them. Since I need water but don't have any emotional care and attraction to it. Since mothers let their sons go away to war and risk their lives for greater things than themselves. In those ...

well, the only glimpse we've gotten of his personality was from rosalie's story in Eclipse, and he seemed kind of, i don't know,arrogant? jerkish? No. We've also gotten a perspective based on what he himself has already said about himself. Rosalie's perspective is just that . . . Rosalie's perspect...

OK!! We need a topic. What do you think Edward was like before meeting Bella? We know he was different - but how? I'll quote myself here, we need to talk about Edward, in depth. Let's just be happy!! This forum is not for arguing, okay? I did one ^^ but kind of got ignored. What do you think Edward...

Sorry for the double post. See, I think the point she is trying to make is that... they don't love each other. They love themselves . What they needs is each other in order to make THEMSELVES happy. Thus, the problem with confusing love and need is that in the case of need, the thing loved is yourse...

She'd be happier, but the more logical choice would be Jake. She'd never be truly happy with Jake though. But, Bella could stay with her family and have kids. She could actually have a normal life with Jake. But like I said, she wouldn't be truly happy. You know, i think after time she could be hap...

At this point the only thing I can think is that you're really confusing love with obsession in this case. You believe all of these symptoms of unhealthy obsession, which isn't love, to be normal and acceptable because it is love. But if the books were written in objective third person, it would be...
