Vampires and "Soulmates"

Post by Be My Escape »

Do vampires have "soulmates", someone they see and instatnly know that person is their mate for eternity. For example Edward wasn't intereseted in anyone before Bella and now he can't imagine being without her (we all saw what happened when he tried :roll:) So what are the implications for a vampire to mate for eternity?

I always wondered about this...one question I had was this...Does the heightened lust for someone's blood identify them as a soulmate or love interest to the vampire? In other words, do all vampires fall in love with the person who's blood "sings" to them? Or are they sometimes just an average Joe who happens to smell especially appetizing? Edward mentioned Emmett "falling off the wagon" in the past, but did Emmett fall in love with those people, or did he just happen across someone who was "his brand of heroin"? Wow, these are a lot of questions. :wink: I guess what I'm trying to get across is, Did Edward just happen to have the bad fortune to find his soulmate in the girl who tempted him more than anyone else? Or is their a relation there; Bella was Edward's soulmate because she was his "la tua cantante".

i think that the "la tua cantante" thing can be compared to jacob's imprinting thing. it appears to be more or less the same thing. It just so happens that Edward found his in Bella, while it may have taken other vampires to find their soulmates in other ways. like w/ emmett n rosalie, it was rosalie that saw him instead of the other way around...and she just knew that she had to save him...n well alice doesnt count because of her visions..lol

I think the 'la tua cantante' situation is a coincidence. I think SM said somewhere that Edward was first intrigued by Bellas 'lack' of thoughts. He would have fallen in love with her sooner if it hadn't been for her blood.
But that doesn't mean he fell in love with her due to her lack of thoughts either! Her absence of thought (that he could hear) would have intrigued him, up to the point he would have gotten to know her better, and then fallen in love. It would have gained his interest (like the beginning of the biology scene, before he smells her), and gradually they would have fallen in love (but faster than it took in Twilight, with probs about 3 months before they spoke properly?)
Edward never really gave humans a chance, because he could hear their thoughts. If it hadn't been for Bellas unique blood, their relationship would have developed faster.

And in answer to the question, yes, I do think vampires have soulmates. And they will inevitably already be, or be changed to a vampire so they can 'live' forever.

Yea, I think it's just a coincidence that Edward fell in love with Bella and he is drawn to her blood.

And I definetly agree that vampires have soulmates - because for them "forever" actually means forever.

I think that Jasper and Alice's story basically answers this question :)

Yes, I think they do, after all at some point they were human and as Edward has said, they are still human just the monster takes them over and they forget how it feels to be human. I think that the facts that Bella's blood smells so good to him, and the fact that he can't hear her thoughts does point to that fact. Who could be any more perfect for him? I don't think it happened by chance. Both of those things together draw him to her, it might not have been the same if she only possessed one of these traits, but both of them together made them absolutely perfect for each other. It's like what Edward said when the truck almost hit Bella, he didn't think : Her blood will get spilled everywhere and then everyone will know what they are because he wouldn't be able to resist her blood spilling out. NO, he thought: NO, not her, anyone but her. I think that proves that his connection with her was about love, that they were meant for each other, soul mates.

Hmm, it's a tricky one.

Personally I don't believe in soal mates, and I think this story shows perfectly that love is something that you work at and liking someones + more than the -

They have a normal relationship in extraordinary circumstances! lol :lol:

Even with soulmates you WORK at love.
