Why? Well let me start by saying I do like Jacob very, very much. I think he is a great, funny, geniune guy. So much so that I think he deserves better. Better than what Bella can give him. Bella is fully, completely in love with Edward. Should she pick someone just because she feels bad for him? That would not be fair. Jacob deserves to have someone who loves HIM completely, and wants to be with him because they can't imagine thereselves with anyone else. Bella can't give that to him, even in 50 years she couldn't.
Bella and Edward belong together. There bond is immensly strong. She may look back in years to come and wonder where Jake is, or how his life is, but she'll never wonder if she made the right choice. :)
Very nicely put! and I completely agree.
I understand where Bella's love for Jake comes from.
He was there when she really needed a friend, someone to pick up the pieces.
But in the end, Edward is the one for her without a doubt.
Jake needs and deserves someone who feels that way for him.

Edward! Edward and bella are soulmates (even if edward doesnt think he has a soul :) )! Plus Jacob cold imprint on some girl and leave bella. then she would be edward- and jacob-less. :cry:

I like Bella and Edward better because it gives girls hope that they can find true love and not have to settle for anything less than perfect.

I think Jacob deserves someone who will love him like Bella loves Edward (even if I don't like him very much).
I think I agree. Jake does diserve somebody LIKE bella, but Bella is never going to like him as much as he liked her.

*cringe* DON'T MAKE ME ANSWER THAT!

okay, i will do my best to contain myself; here goes...

Overall i'd have to say that i would rather Bella go with Edward, it's obvious that she cannot live without him. YET, Bella has done it- she went over half a year with her love, but the only reason she was able to do so was because of JACOB. He was her sunlight in the most darkest point of her life. I really feel for Jacob on the basis that he's losing the love of his life- Bella. I don't know about anyone else here, but i was completely obssessed and written off on the fact that Bella&Edward were meant to be, forever&ever Amen. But once Edward left in NM (and i finished crying my eyes out), i really got into the whole relationship built between Bella & Jacob. He cared for her, helped her and was eventually on his way to bringing her back to normal. For me that's the type of thing that sticks out the most. I can't imagine what it must be like for Jacob to know Bella loves him as much as he loves Bella, yet she's still going with Edward. Don't get me wrong- Edward adores Bella & cannot live without her either; they're just meant to be and there's not getting around it yet i'm still torn on the fact that Jacob deserves Bella...then again Edward deserves Bella as well. We all know that no matter who Bella chooses it will be 'the best thing' for her. Our only problem is determining how painful it will be for the 'un-chosen' man to break away and let Bella live with whoever she's chosen....i guess what i'm trying to say here is: WHY STEPHENIE WHY!? :oops:

Yes, you got it, it can easily be interpreted that the same thing goes on with Bella and Edward. Deeper? Sure, a drug addict 'loves' his drugs more than I love chocolate. Same thing with Bella and Edward. It's an addiction, not love.
So if I say I love my family, do I really only love myself because my family makes me happy? I love books, writing, sports, people, food, music, movies, romance, parks, beaches. Does that really mean I only love myself? I just don't get it. You love chocolate. Period. It making you happy doesn't affect your love for it. It making you happy is the result of that love.

Sure. But Bella and edward never developed real love. They went from mutual attraction to 'I'd risk my cover as a vampire for you/I'd leave my life and change into a vampire to be with you' in such little time that no real love could've developed. Obsession can be that immediate. Love can't. I love my family, but that's partly because i've had all my life to grow to care about them so much. Bella and Edward were already in what they called 'deep, true, irrevocable love' in under a month. Real loving emtions don't work like that, but obsessive tendencies, which the parties suffering can mistake for ddep love, do. That's all.
Why are you so bitter? Did someone run over your cat?

Change of heart.

For the longest time, I was Team Edward.


But after a heated discussion over at EW today, this quote popped up, and I've changed my mind.


"Love worth dieing for is beautiful."

-------
"You know what's even more beautiful? Life worth living for. Worth living through hardship and sadness for. Worth experiencing change and loss and real joy for. Bella will never have that with Edward; she'd just be an unchanging, perfect vampire with none of the difficult experiences that make life real and intense and make love deeper and truer. With Jacob, she'd really live."

That really goes deep. No phrase can ever match up to that on the E/B sideline. It's so beautiful... I wish I'd though of it myself.

And anyways, while I still sort of hate Jake, I know where I stand. Team "Bella is really whiny and needy so she deserves no one". In BD, Edward will get the girl. But in the end, Jacob has won the war. Bella is doing him a favor by dumping him. She doesn't deserve him. At all. I hope he can overcome her and go back to living normally.

Damn straight!
It's lust, not love.
E/B's relationship is sort of like, I don't know, a frozen Uncrustable peanut butter and jelly sandwich in a kid's lunch bag. It's made really quick and it tastes really good, but you didn't make it yourself. Other factors made it (aka the smell of blood, looks, dazzlement, old-fashioned cadences). However, J/B's relationship is a homemade pb&j sandwich in a kid's lunch bag. It takes longer to make... but in the end it still tastes sort of the same. Maybe even better. And yeah, the sandwich may not be perfect, unlike the Uncrustable (there could be too much pb and not enough j), but in the end it still tastes good. Because it was made with love. Someone actually cared enough about you to take the time to hand make a sandwich. With the Uncrustable, all you have to do is take it out of the freezer and throw it in the lunch bag.

When Bella almost got run over by that car, all he could think of was "not her". Why not her?? What led him to be in love with her, when he only saw her for two days? He only had one conversation with her, and all she did was talk about how she hated Forks and why she came here. Somebody, please, show me how someone could fall in love just like that. Find evidence within those pages that could prove how they could fall in love. Would you go up to a random guy on the street, talk about the weather and why your on that street, and fall automatically in love? I think not.

Honey, the truth hurts.
I didn't want to believe it myself, but yeah.

Erynn, I completely agree with you. I don't see Edward and Bella's relationship as some shining example of the truest of true love... not by a long shot. I really just feel like they are obsessed with each other in a drug addict kind of way. It is clear that Bella does NOT want to marry him, and I don't think she really wants to become a vampire either. All she thinks about is 1) making Edward happy- and by attempting to do this she constantly hurts herself and the people around her- and 2) her desire to be with him forever. In her mind immortality = forever which is why she thinks she wants to be a vampire. I do think they love each other, but I don't think its as set in stone or as "destined" as a lot of people believe. Don't get me wrong, I think it's clear that Bella made her choice at the end of Eclipse, I just don't think it was the right one. (for evidence, read the quotes in my sig.) In all honesty, I could not think of a sadder ending than for Edward to bite Bella and for the two of them to live out their long, meaningless vampire lives together.

So here's to hope!
Team Jacob- because with him, Bella can live.
