New Moon is when he started to get on my bad side, first by the horrible way he left her (No warning? Ditching her in the woods? Come on Ed! What's that about??) and then steeling/hiding her pictures and the CD he gave her. It REALLY made me mad when he did that. What right did he have to take her things? I know he was trying to do the selfless thing and leave Bella alone for her own good- I honestly think he was right to do that- but sometimes I think he should have stayed away. I have been annoyed with him since he came back into the picture at the end of New Moon. I felt like we were really starting to get to know Bella and see a different side of her, a more independent (and much less obsessive) Bella who was learning to laugh again, and love again. Then suddenly Edward's in trouble and Bella has to run off to save him, abandoning all the progress she had made. It REALLY irked me how easily Bella let him back into her life. It's like she can't say no to him. It's a bit unsettling.

I may have been able to get over my ill feelings toward Edward if it weren't for his behavior in Eclipse. All the time he spent trying to keep her away from Jacob- dismantling her truck? Bribing Alice to kidnap her?? Unbelievable!!! And the worst part about it is how Bella never really gets mad at him about any of it, she simple lets him control her in that way, and she ends up treating Jacob- her best friend- very badly this whole time as a result of Edward's power over her. Also the part when Edward gives Bella the diamond heart-shaped charm and puts it on the bracelet that Jacob made her for graduation gift- that was a very very not ok thing to do in my eyes. And then he goes on to force her to agree to marry him even though she ABSOLUTELY does not want to at. all. The way she reacted when he first showed her the ring had me nearly screaming at my book "Say no Bella! Throw the ring at him and RUN!". She obviously does NOT want to marry him and I know she doesn't really want to become a vampire, all she thinks about is wanting to make Edward happy and wanting to be able to be with him forever (in her eyes immortal = forever, which why she thinks she wants to be a vampire).

When I go back and re-read the books I find evidence of this obsessive relationship even in Twilight where I first thought I loved Edward, in the way Edward is constantly holding on to Bella... or carrying her... or wrapping his arm around her waist... as if she cant even stand up on her own. Overall Edward is nauseatingly overprotective and extremely possessive of Bella which I DO NOT admire or like in any way. And Bella's inability to say no to him is also a factor in my dislike for him. Edward is a drug for her. The two are obsessed with each other in a way that drives me crazy as a reader.

And that concludes my Edward rant for the day.
Haha!! Loved. It.

I'm on your side girl. If any guy tried to treat me like Edward treats Bella, I'd move to a different country! Creepy...

I guess what I don't like about Edward is how incredibly overprotective and kind of controlling he is with Bella.
He does it because he loves her, but I feel like at the end of New Moon and in Eclipse, he has no right to act like he owns her because of how he left her before.

But other than that...perfection.
Jacob > Edward. Except when he's not...

You must've took the words out of my mouth. Edward- boy, I love him, but sometimes I hate him!!!!! Like New Moon. If you love Bella, she loves you, why would you want to give her a normal life? If she wanted a normal life, she wouldn't be dating you! Gosh. I thought he was smart! lol

Wow. 13%. I really can't believe that THIRTEEN PERCENT of you don't like Edward!!! Wow. I...am speechless.

Accept about one thing that I keep hearing a lot of you saying: that when Edward left Bella in New Moon you started to not like him (i've even heard someone say they hated him afterwards). Well, read the end of New Moon!! Can't you see his reasoning? And also, read the tent scene with Jacob in Eclipse. The only reason he left her was because he loved her so much he didn't want her to get hurt. Maybe not all of us agree with that (SM herself that Edward can be overreactive sometimes) but come on, think! He wasn't just leaving her, it wasn't like a high school break-up. I just think you all need to thing through your reasoning a little bit and try to look at things from his point of view. Finally, to end all this, I would like to quote something Edward said at the end of New Moon:

"When I told you I didn't love you, it was the blackest kind of blasphemy." -Edward Cullen

Come on people! How could you not love a guy that would say that to you!!!

Easily. You should read my previous post, I have a very long, detailed list :wink:

Ok, KT, I took your advice and read your post, and before I say anything else, I just want to tell you that I completely respect your opinion and do see your side of things. However, there was just one little thing that kind of bugged me a little bit. Toward the end you said something about how Edward always has him arms around her, well that's really just a sign of affection more than anything else, and its basically saying that he loves her and wants her with him. I think it's sweet really.

Anyway, that's all and once again I think you have some very valid points unlike one of my friends who's always like "I don't know Jacob's just hotter!!" whenever we talk about Edward vs. Jacob. I'm starting to see the other side a bit more clearly. Thanks.

But I'm still hard core Team Edward :wink:

If a guy told me he didn't love me, and then later said that he was just lying for my own good...

Wow, I would be pissed. Personally, I think that you should pretty much NEVER lie to someone like that (yes, there are special instances, this was not one of them, because he came back anyway). Now if Edward ever says anything that sounds less than sincere, she is going to wonder...

Well, maybe. At least i would. Bella probably wouldn't though. She is completely blind to Edward's creepiness... lol

By the way, I think that I should say again that I don't hate Edward. I just dislike him. Hehehe...

Edward... its his first time too

Post by katlovejay »

You have to remember that it's Edward's first time too. He never had a girlfriend and he lost Bella once before. So, ofcourse he is going to be a little bit nuts. And, remember, he does change his ways and lets Bella hangout with Jacob who practically assaults her! Edward... I love you... I got your back!
I LOVE Froks...

Of course, I love Edward. He is everything Bella describes him as, and she doesnt even see some of it. His 1900s upbringing makes his old fashioned ideas part of his personality, and lemme say, he is HAWT!

He is SEXY too ;D
