Me. I'd prefer my romantic interests to have a life beyond me. Not commit suicide if I died, that sort of thing. It shows good mental health, which is always something important in a romantic partner.

He did have a life before Bella, quite a long one! His life was turned upside down when he met her. Once you meet someone who has that kind of impact on you, you are in that moment changed forever. The immense connection the two of them share is not something that is easily walked away from. I think the problem some people have with the relationship is the intensity of it is not something that is easily understood by some people who have not experienced some kind of their own special relationship. I am not saying I've ever experienced something as close as Edward and Bella's, but I do have a close relationship and living without him is not an option I could easily recover from.
And yes, I love Edward!! :wink:

But committing suicide if the love interest dies or is absent is unhealthy, a sign of an obsessive disorder, and not loving. Sure, the connection isn't easy to walk away from but suicide is never a sign of true love.

Hehe. That made me laugh. Emotional codependency is SUCH a turnoff. Emotional independency is attractive! And when they are emotionally independent, but still choose to stick with you, because they really care about you, that there is true love!

I agree with both, but I think that being the "reason of existence" for someone is a little too much pressure. It works for Bella and Edward, but if a boy said that to me, I'd be stressed out thinking that if I broke up with him, then he'd commit suicide, and then it'd go all "sitcom-y" and i'd try and make him dislike me and it would end terribly. haha So no emotional codependency for me thank you. haha

Haha. Exactly. I'll pass on the drama, give me a good helping of someone with a real life!

LOL. Twice on Sundays. I like that.
I most certainly do love Edward<3
Even without his looks, he's beautiful.
But, there are some people on the Lex who don't care much for him; it's insane! But I enjoying hearing what everyone thinks about all of the characters. (:
And then, of course, there's the girls who swoon over every move Edward makes. haha.

Not loving Edward is like.... asking rain during a drought. It's impossible for me!


Gah, there is no one I love more than Edward. He's perfect, my everything. It's so hard to believe he's not real too, thanks Stephenie.
