Too Much Love?

Post by Maria »

Sorry if this question has been asked before...

As much as we enjoy reading about Bella and Edward's intense, against-all-odds love, would YOU personally want to be in a relationship like theirs?

I'm not asking if you want to have a relationship with a vampire (tee hee), but if you want to be as emotionally tied with another person, like they are with each other?


I don't know what I feel. I want to have friends, and my own interests, outside of the relationship. I don't think Bella has that.


Discuss :)

one of the reasons (( keyword: ONE )) that i love the twilight books is reading the relationship between edward and bella
i get lost in the world of the book and when i read it it's like i'm there. i love what they have and it would be completely awesome to find a guy like that.. some one who would always be there where ever you needed him... not having to care about the world around you and just knowing that in his arms, you're safe and everything is right.
that, i think, would be lovely.
Does my being half-naked bother you?

No, definately not. I think it's dangerous to be so attached to only one person-look how little Bella has keeping her back from changing into a vampire. Her parents, Jacob, and...that's it.

I think it is great to be in a relationship where you are as supportive of one another as they are...but it would be a bit scary to be as dependant as they are. That much passion and total life controlling devotion is wonderful to read about, but look how cataclysmic their reactions were to being seperated! It is to be envied in the fictional sense, that perhaps they CAN live forever, but since we can't, I wouldn't want that potential heartache.

I love my husband dearly, and I feel that we are as supportive as Edward and Bella (and our communication is a heck of a lot better! :lol: ) but if, God forbid, something should happen to him, I would not throw myself off a cliff, and I doubt that he would either. But again, we have children, and would HAVE to be responsible, even in the wake of tragedy.

Maybe for six months, lose the feeling, and never see each other again. No.

Really, I don't know, I'm clueless about love and maybe I always will be. I've never had a good relationship. So I can't tell you. The people who are married can answer this for me. I'm not qualified.

Can you really have too much love?

I love the relationship they have in the book. I admit I am married and love my husband very much and we are the best of friends. I wouldn't change a thing between us because I feel we are so close similar in ways to Bella and Edward.

Well maybe I would change one thing...He could be more romantic. I find Edward completely romantic at times and I actually told my husband to read the book and take notes on how to be more romantic like Edward. He did read the book and loved it therefor so have I. :) ha ha
Yes I want a "Cold One" and no I am not talking about a drink!

I wish my boyfriend would be more romantic too. But he tries and his attempts are sweet. It's just no Edward....jk

As far as this whole love thing goes, I think it's wonderful to be so engrossed with someone else, but eventually it must level out, at a more normal and easier to handle level. I love my boyfriend dearly but I have my own life. If I can't function as a single person how am I supposed to function with someone else.

So, I think I'll leave this kind of love for the fantasy world :D

i love twilight and new moon because of the relationships...well, mostly for the relationships...i <3 vampires, naturally.

plus, bella never really meshed well with humans in the first place, so edward never took her away from any real friendships.

and Marcy, your display pic made me laugh...so hard...

I absolutely love reading about Edward and Bella's romance! They are absolutely wonderful and perfect for one another. I understand the reason for their dependency. Edward isnt exactly your average boyfriend and its not in his (or his family's)best interests to draw attention to themselves by mingling with humans. :wink: However, I'd like to be in a relationship where everything is a little more balanced. Creating friendships and keeping them is extremely important. You never know when things can go wrong ...the relationship may end for whatever reasons, and you are left with nothing. Its important to maintain your previous relationships when youre involved with someone.
