Why didn't Bella tell the truth to her "admirers", that she was clumsy and didn't go to dances? She didn't have to make up the Seattle thing.

Twilight: Chapter 3 ~ My Thoughts

Post by DreamerTacy »

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 think some how she knew there was a reason for her coming to Forks... and dating random guys was not one of them. There is something about Edward that pulls Bella to him just as much as Bella pulls Edward to her. Think of the fridge magnets in the third book (I know they are the two sides of Bella, but this is similar...) when you flip one over and reverse the polarity, they immediately are attracted to each other. Bella's life got flipped over when she moved to Forks, so she was immediately attracted to the one "magnet" and the others she "pushed" away.


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 think it is his internal struggle with himself. He has been "taught" to not reveal what he is, not give away the family secret. He has been counselled by his family to (number 1) don't drink human blood, abstain... and (number 2) stay away from Bella in order to save them all. His struggle is between what he has decided he wants to do (be with Bella, let her in on the secret, share his existance with her, learn more about her) and what he has grown up as a vampire as what is "right". His mood changes as he pulls himself these different ways and it is showing on the outside.

I thought that bella didn't want to go becasuse of her balance problems. I knew it straight away.

I thought at first that he was trying to distract her, but it turns out he was just trying to distract himself (i think?)

Because sometimes it's easier to 'have other plans' than to make it awkward and turn them down. she just made a big move and all these boys were acting differently than what she was used to, i guess

I think he was frustrated that he didn't know what she was thinking and overconfident that he would eventually.
plus guys are weird sometimes lol.

Cause she can't dance and Edward didn't ask her. Because the electricty between her and Edward.

I thought that question was so funny, and I found it shocking.

She is not used to being the center of attention and she can't dance as she is not steady on her feet.

Men have different moods and his is more noticable than others.

1. 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 think it is several reasons:
A) Because she can't dance, is a clutz and doesn't want to make an fool out of herself. B) I think that Bella is very mature and high school boys mentally just don't appeal. and C) Because now that she's seen Edward, she is crushing hard and of course no one else would appeal to her at that point. Why drool over flank steak when you can drool over filet mignon.

2. 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 think it's because there is an inner turmoil brewing in Edward. Part of him wants her blood and is trying to push her away and the other part is intrigued and really wants to get to know her. I also think that perhaps she brings the more human attributes out in him but with his arrogance he sometimes forgets to think before he speaks.

She doesn't seem to be interested in participating in social occasions. So why would she be interested in visiting a school dance?

He tries to cover his uncertainity towards Bella. He really doesn't know what to do or say cause he doesn't know what she thinks.

I think, at first, she just doesn't want to go. She can't dance, she's not comfortable with it. Then, I think she begins to be annoyed with all the attention she's getting.

I thought he must be confused about something. He maybe was trying to figure her out, and was frustrated that he couldn't, and then frustrated because of that, and so on. I thought that remark was funny, though.

I don't think it was all because of the boys that Bella didn't want to go to the spring dance. She is a clutz, as we all know and love, so she didn't want everyone to laugh at her if she face planted in the middle of a dance. And I guess Bella's attention was so taken by Edward and the Cullen that first day, she barely noticed the other boys who enjoyed running after her like puppies. I bet it was quite flattering, but Bella would rather go for the mysterious, gorgeous boy staring at her from across the cafeteria. We're all glad she did!

I thought he was just a strange kid. Not in a bad way, just that he was conflicted, like he couldn't make sense of this new girl. It was a nice effect, it made me really see how mysterious Edward was.
