I agree with you as well White Shadow! :wink:

it's probably not just her mind - it's BELLA! she's a private person! I can't believe the answer was actually that easy... lol!

agreed!

definitely.. everyone seem to think that Bella has to have had a few friends, but I really don't think so... I know I sound like a broken record now - repeating myself over and over again - but Bella just isn't a "friend"-person.. she's even not that close with her mom - whom she calls her best friend!

Out of Synch

I think Bella said she felt like she was out of synch with the rest of the world. She felt that way about her Renee and Renee was her best friend. I think she probably had frends but no one she would truly miss when she moved.

Based on the q&a session in Spain with the members of crepusculo, I'm reviving this thread for a little bit...

Q. Doesn't Bella have any friends she keeps in touch with in Phoenix?

A. Bella's Phoenix existence was pretty much as her mother's best friend as Renee takes an awful lot of effort and time. Bella is shy too, so has no real close girlfriends she'd go shopping with or anything like that. She didn't leave strong ties behind her and it's easy to fall out of touch with people.


So there you have it. 8)

Stephenie has said that Bella never had anyone very close back in Pheonix besides her mother and she was a shy gilr who kept mostly to her self so that's why it's never brought up or why no one contacts her.

I think she'd "friends" in pheonix like she has "friends" in Forks (excluding the cullens and anyone from La Push... well, mostly Jacob haha)
if she moved, I doubt she'd keep contact with Jessica or any of the rest of them
no one human anyway
people she might talk to, but never enough to share anything worth sharing with a friend

EDIT never mind, I didnt see that post with the PQ in it

Does anyone else want to know the story about someone daring Bella to eat dirt and she did? I love knowing little things like that. Didn't she also used to take piano lessons? I also want to know more about her ballet class. That must've been awful.
Honestly.... no I don't really care (no offense) to what happened before.... well not reallly i mean it'd be cool to know sure but I don't wonder or anything.

I think that those stories would be really cute.
I dont believe that Bella was really super involved with anyone in Phoneix....Im sure she had somewhat friends, but nothing too permanent.

Lol, that's what my friends say...it's insignificant, but I've always been interested in knowing in little back stories of main characters.

Since Bella has lived in Phoenix for most of her life, she HAS to have friends there, correct? She NEVER mentions any of them in both books and it just bothers me. Don't they contact her? Call? E-mail? I may be making this a bigger deal then needed but it just bugs me to no end.

well she lived in california for a while also and she never made friends there either. if i remember correctly the school she went to was full of rich stuck up people. that is probally why is did not make or keep any close friends. i never kept in touch with people from my school even after i graduated hight school. i think some people are just like that. i didn't even keep in touch with my best friend from high school. and i was not a loner by any means. i had a lot of friends but i really didn't care to stay in touch with them when i got through with high school. my reason was becuse i went to a school where all the students had rich parents and they were just sallow and back stabers. from what bella described in twilight, she went to the same kind of school. so i totally understand why she did not keep in touch with anyone

Bella's Old Friends

by klutzs rule!!
Bella is on a different page then everyone else. Edward says that he thinks the reason he cannot read her mind is that most people are on FM and she is on AM frequency, or something like that. I think the same applies to her social life. She is not really on the same page as everyone else, and the friends were not worth keeping up with. As many have mentioned, adding memories would not only be uncharacteristic of Bella, but it would not be important. The important information is not put in until it is needed.
