My husband and I were together for about four years before we got married. When we started dating I was 20 and he was 24. The first year of our relationship was kind of like Edward and Bella's, he was definitely "my kind of heroin" but as we grew in our relationship things changed. We may not be as romantic and needing to be with each other all of the time like we were then but we are still deeply in love. I have found my soul mate so I like the kind of love that B and E have. But I would not have wanted it at Bella's age. It was nice to learn more about myself before beginning to learn everything about another person. I felt like I really knew myself in High School and I was a lot like Bella, few people really got me (though I tried a lot harder to make people get me than Bella). But I think living on my own and taking care of my self was vital to really knowing what was important in another person.

Also, it is a story; it would not be nearly as fun to listen to the day to day life of a happy normal couple. However, I do think that if Bella changes (into a vampire) they will change and grow in their love and be a little more balanced (after all they will have forever). It would be interesting to know what their relationship would be like after a few centuries

Would I want to be in a relationship like Bella and Edward's?

I don't know. The connection they have; the closeness from going through so much together...that is something I would want. The passion, too... can't forget the passion!

Then again, Edward is a little possessive of Bella. Justified or not, that is a quality I absolutely hate in a guy. I also don't like how he makes decisions for her. I wouldn't say I'm the most independent person in the world, but come on! I need my space and I'm capable of making my own decisions...so back off buddy!

I guess I would like to have a relationship like theirs, but with a guy who was a lot less...overbearing. And since he would be human, I don't think that's too much to ask :P

I suppose it would have it's risks though, and i'd like to have friends outside of the relationship.
I am in the same boat as you are. I hope that it is really as great as Stephenie makes it.

I adore reading about Bella and Edward's relationship, but I have a preference for the type of relationship Jasper and Alice have, that sort of connection, which is very different from the type of connection Bella and Edward have. I just adore the type of very mystical -- I believe that's the word Stephenie used to describe their relationship-- relationship that Jasper and Alice have. Besides, given the choice, I'd choose Jasper over Edward in a heartbeat. I like Jasper better than Edward.

I really like their relationship and I love reading it because I get completely lost in it but I think they are a little bit too dependant on each other especially Bella. I can understand how Edward is because it's almost impossible for him to have friends outside of his family for obvious reasons and he's been alone for so long, but I think Bella needs to be a bit more rounded. In saying that I can see how she wouldn't want to get too close knowing that she'll be leaving that life behind.
I want to sparkle like Edward!

I cannot live without my life! I cannot live without my soul!!- edward to me! duh!

I think I would want something like that. Its just better than like high school love. High school love is more shallow, but you do have a social life & I think thats what's great about Bella & Edward's relationship, they dont have to complicate it with other people hanging around, she sees enough of her friends at school/work & occasionally does something with them outside of school.
