Why do you think Bella doesn't want to go to the spring dance? She could easily just have said to anyone, "let's just go as friends". Why is it that from day one, none of the boys appealed to her?
I thought that she wasn't sure whether to put down roots yet--going to a dance with someone else would surely be putting down roots. And also, the mystery that Edward provided overruled something as trivial as a spring dance.

Bella asks Edward if he has multiple personality disorder because he either seems to be overly friendly or sarcastic moments apart. To what did you attribute Edward's odd behavior?
I thought it was because he had a lot on his mind--and the changing color eyes seemed to have something to do with it.

She didn't want to give Mike or any of the other guys the wrong idea. None of the guys who asked her to the dance appealed to her because the only guy she had her eye on was Edward.

His changing-of-color eyes. And his random dissapearences from school.

I thought that maybe Bella didn't have such an event that high on her list of priorities, if it was even on there at all (which I doubt it was' ) And again I could identify with her in this aspect. I think also that it may have been sort of a shell-shock'"nobody in Phoenix ever asked her out, and here she is getting three invitations at once!

I didn't mind that he acted this way. It actually made him more interesting to me. I figure'"hey, if girls are allowed to have mood swings, I shouldn't hold it against guys if they do, right? :wink:

Well, I understood her clumsiness, because I also fell so many times, and also, I don't know dancing. I suspected some feelings from Bella to Edward, without wanting to go to other boys. Of course, who would want to go with Mike when Edward is there, for you? :lol:

To his character. He was just like that, changing sad to happy, or happy to angry everytime. I was getting accostumated to that in that chapter.

I thought Bella doesn't want to go because of the boys. She likes them - but she don't want to dance. I didn't think she think that no one is good enough for her...

He is fighting against himself. Against the wrong - to be with Bella and like her.

I just think that she doesn't dance. I don't like school dances. It makes sense to me. I think that from day one, she knew that there were better things waiting for her. Besides- Bella didn't seem like the type of girl to be obsessed with boys or into dating.

I thought that he wasn't taking enough Prozac or something. He seriously seemed like he had a bi-polarity disorder. Or maybe it was just PMS.

First of all, I think she really didn't want to go to the dance because she was terribly afraid of dancing in front of people. Then, I think none of the boys appealled to her because none of them were really all that special. All very nice, but not *special*.

I assumed that he was super conflicted about his interaction with Bella. It was making him moody.

I figured Bella was just too worried about her balance problems to think about the boys. I also think she had her eye on Edward, and next to him, a human looks so... normal.

I was totally confused. I figured Edward had some history where he'd heard of Bella and had a bad experience?

Why do you think Bella doesn't want to go to the spring dance? She could easily just have said to anyone, "let's just go as friends". Why is it that from day one, none of the boys appealed to her? She can't dance. I understand her completely (haha).. No, but seriously, I don't think she wants to go. I've said it before, but I'll say it again: I don't think Bella is a typical teenage-girl who cares to much about dances etc.
Bella is lost in Edward. None of the boys can compare with him. He's to supernatural - to gorgeous.


Bella asks Edward if he has multiple personality disorder because he either seems to be overly friendly or sarcastic moments apart. To what did you attribute Edward's odd behavior? Edward have never experienced something like this before, actually he hasn't experienced being in love with someone either. I just think he's a little bit confused and ... yes, scared of what he'll might do if something goes wrong.
I've already heard this before.

Bella is a little on the klutzy side. None of the boys appealed to her because he weren't really her type, they were much younger. Plus there's Edward Cullen...*sigh*

Edward is always to the extremes, we can tell that in every book but I don't want to spoil anything for anyone. Edward is worried about being close to her...temptations...but then again she's never saying what Edward expects, what normal humans think. Edward is trying hard not to fall in love with Bella but sometimes he just gives up.
