I think that what intrigued Edward to Bella was a couple of things, the not being able to read her mind, and the "singing" of her blood. Im sure he found her attractive too, plus he could hear every other guys thoughts about Bella, that must have got him somewhat curious also. But i dont think he immediately fell in love with her the second he saw her, like Jared did with Kim or Sam/Emily.

Their relationship had to develop in order for them to get to know each other. As their relationship grew, so did their love, and through the time they spent together they found that they couldnt live without each other (literally). So i guess in a way


they are soulmates because they match and mesh perfectly together.

and didnt emmett say he had a similar experience with the intensity of someone's blood. I dont think that because a vampire finds a "la tua cantante" necessarily means that, that specific human is the soulmate, but more so the blood is just much more appealing.

i dunno if i made any sense.. :/


Good point................ I was wondereing about the whole Emmet thing also

In the first chapter of Midnight Sun (Edward's POV) he didn't seem at all physically attracted to her... he said she was nothing more than an ordinary human girl and all the boys were only interested because she was new.

ohh yeah thats right. Well i guess the intrigue came from the fact that he couldn't read her mind, and the intensity of her blood.

But i mean we do know that he is physically attracted to her, but I think what makes them soul mates is that their relationship is so deep that because they developed their love, the connection became everlasting.

I am extremely curious though as to what prompted Edward to continue the relationship with Bella. I mean, yeah I read twilight like, a lot, but after reading MS, he was so out of control, I cant wait to hear his thoughts about returning and what got him over the "really-wanting-to-kill-her-phase"...

I agree.. Their Chemistry is way intense and yah their relationship formed actually pretty quick in Twilight.. Because he said that he was tired of staying away from her and that he was going to let the chips fall where they may.. I know that he appalled at first and he thought she was a demon sent from hell but then he said I was curious about you and I came to your house every night... I think that in a way they are soul mates and made for each other because their connection is so strong I mean she could of given up during new moon but she left and went to save him and didn't care what happened... Even from the beginning she didn't care what he was because she looked past that... I also can't wait to read Midnight sun...

Well, we saw it a little bit in Twilight... He tried to stay away from her at first...but she didn't want to stay away from him...and he was intrigued by her...so he quit following the rules, and followed his instincts.

okay, okay.
this had me confused.
but now i think ive got it! :shock:

okay, yes i think vampires have soulmates. or just love. you know how, as humans (no, duh), some of us believe that we have soulmates while others believe we just have to work hard on love? and nothing comes perfectly? well i think its true for vampires. you can call the person you fit together perfectly with your "soulmate" but you could also just say that you love them, and you've worked hard on your relationship.

i think bella and edwards, jasper and alices, and all the other vampire couples are like this. because these are HUMAN emotions... "you just have to dig down deep.. but its definitely resurfacing" (Edward from Twilight during the Meadow scene -- Sorry! not verbatim)

okay, and heres the Vampire Twist:
Edward, when talking to Jake in some part of Eclipse, said that "when something as big (like bella) changes us, then we are changed forever. you think of as stone.. and for the most part we are. we stay changed. no going back" (again, not verbatim - but close.. i think its from when they're in the tent)...

so , bella and edward could be soulmates (if you believe in soulmates) or they just REALLY REALLY love each other.

but its not like imprinting. imprinting is werewolf. only. :roll:

:!: also, for "la tua cantante" maybe ive missed this, but doesnt that ONLY have to do with blood-drinking. ONLY. not love at all. okay thats all.

Well the litral translation for "la tua cantanta" is "your singer" (I'm pretty posetive of this) so really it has nothing to do with blood drinking, I mean in the book it means that Bella's blood "sings" for Edward, maybe the metaphor has a deeper meaning aswell that it's not just about the blood.

I think that Vampires do have soulmates becuase note how the Cullen have always found their partners so way or another.

Yah they definetly have soul mates or significant others that fit perfectly with them.. Because as you said each of the cullens have found eachother one way or another... If you look at edward and Bella They didn't have anyone in their life to complete them but then Bella moves to Forks ironically enough Edward just happens to be there and then he wants to kill her and he looked past that just like she did and it didn't matter what he was and then they are together.. Really think about it she didn't have anyone and either did he for 90 so years so obviously they are ment for each other I know she didn't have to wait that long..

I agree with you 100%

And while I do think imprinting and the allure of her blood are just a coincidence, I think Edward may 'imprint' in a way on Bella.

At first he stayed away for her safety, and the safety of his family. Then he follows her home and watches her almost every night. I think he was in love with her quite soon, and before he even knew it. I think the vampires have the ability to just know about someone almost right away, much like Jacob and the other werewolves do when they imprint.

thank you for answering my question! :D
but.. again, im still now sure about the love part.

because in NM when the "la tua cantante" came up.. i think the blood singing to Edward shows you how yummy-scrumboes it will be to edward.

not that bella is meant for him.

but that bella's blood is meant to be drunken by him.

and i THINK heres my proof:
when aro was asking eddie how he could stand so close to bella and he was like "why do you...?"
and edward finished off: "waste it?"

:lol: i might be wrong. hehe.

OH! and yeah. on the soul mates. there are them for vamps. okay, done. :]
