So, I ask those of you who were upset by Edward's actions regarding the applications: Knowing that Bella isn't planning to actually attend college right away and that Edward knows that his efforts are probably in vain because of that fact...Why is his action so bothersome to you? Simply because Bel...

I also agree with Tennyo that Edward has some emotional walls that he has not let down for Bella. StupidxLamb 's point (on another thread) about both Bella and Edward thinking they love the other more and both feeling undeserving of each other's love probably has something to do with it. Whatever t...

She didn't tell Edward that she missed her mother, or that she wasn't quite ready to become a vampire, or a number of other things. They both try to put on brave faces for each other, and you can't really blame Edward for being perceptive. He just asks Bella more about what is bothering her. When B...

I have a piano lesson in less than 5 mintes so I have to be fast too-I'm not talking about secrets, I mean emotional boundries. He won't let Bella see when he's hurt, for instance. He just tries to keep stoic and it really doesn't help that he seems to know every secret she has and she lets down emo...

Does Edward drop all boundries for Bella, though? There are several times in Eclipse that she thinks that she's reading him right and he just shuts her out because he feels she can't handle it or something. It stuck out to me that while Edward seems to have gotten very intimate in the working of Bel...

Oh, I'm the first to admit that Bella isn't me and I'm not Bella. :mrgreen: I mean, that would make this story far more violent and probably rather unhappy from all the screaming. So let's just be grateful that I'm not there! I was thinking however on whether Bella herself is very happy at the idea ...

Pisa! I think the same thing happens to me at that time of the month. But I find it's probably best to save face and not mention it after I've blown up like a chimney at someone. It does strike me as completely tactless to tell anyone hormonal that they're being hormonal. No one wants to be treated ...

I see what you're saying, Lisa (can I call you Lisa?). But I don't see it as "not knowing yourself", I see it as "ignoring what's there". I think it is literally impossible for someone else to know you better than you know yourself, simply because no one can really know unless they're standing insid...

Oh - and about it being insulting to say he knew Bella loved Jacob before she did? Well... only if the truth is insulting. It's insulting to me because it's like saying "I know your thoughts before you do. And you don't have capacity to understand what I do, even if it's about yourself." In that se...
