I totally agree with emilycullenx. That's exactly how I feel about Jacob. Thank you for putting it that way.

i just liked Jacob EVEN more after reading Eclipse cause to be honest i got really into the relationship he was forming with Bella in NM. He cheered me up too after Edward left! I love Jacob, he's awesome- and much more realistic (that doesn't mean i don't love Edward to death!!)

the last portion of 'emilycullenx's entry put my perspective perfectly By the way...with the fact that i want Jacob to be there & all

I agree with emilycullenx too. But my new understanding of Jacob came when I realized that Bella was more to blame than Jacob. He was just doing what felt natural based on the signals she was giving him...walking hand in hand on the beach, sneaking off to see him etc. He just ran with her signals knowing she loved him, and he wanted to save her from being a vampire. I dont blame Jacob for anything except the way he handled the kisses. Those were wrong, in my opinion. But I blame Bella for than Jacob. So anyway, yeah my feelings about Jake have changed for sure...for the better.

I don't like Jacob much. I wouldn't mind much if he died. I admit I liked him, in some sort of way, before he pretended something romantic with Bella. But, I do think he deserves something. I think he deserves someone who can love him fully, not him and another man, and by 'another man' I meant Edward. There must be some sort of reason why Stephenie didn't made him imprint on Bella, and that may be: Option one: He will fall in love with another woman. Option two: He will die. Stephenie believes in happy endings. I never saw Jacob's love for Bella great, compared to Edward's. If he dies, he might as well die the way he wanted to, to say it short, heroically. Then again, I repeat, he deserves someone who can love him fully. I hope Bella will feel relief if he falls in love with another human, and Jacob happiness. If he dies, I personally wouldn't mind, yet he might as well do it throughly.

Oh, and I've never liked him. Eclipse made me dislike him even more.

i totally agree with you on this!!! jacob always plays the poor kid role to make bella guilty. he knows that bella is easily duped, so he always manipulates her. i remember a time when jacob tries to argue that edward is manipulating bella and i was thinking he's one to talk!! i like jacob fine as a guy, but not for bella. he's just hurting her more by trying to help. :(

Exactly. I actually liked Jacob in New Moon, but then Edward came back, and he changed. Jacob seems to be a nice enough guy when he doesn't have to fight for Bella. When he does, he plays dirty, and I definitely don't like him as much since Eclipse. He uses Bella's weaknesses to manipulate her, and I wish Bella would realize this. Jacob needs to be with someone who would notice when he tries to do this, and someone who would call him on it. Someone who is not Bella.

Well said!

All I'll say is when he tricked Bella into kissing him I had no more sympathy for him whatsoever. Made me very angry, it did. He is far too immature for Bella, and sometimes I get the feeling that it's not just because he thinks he loves her that he manipulates her like that. I think he just can't stand the idea of losing her to an enemy and that he does what he does for competition. Lol I don't think that makes sense. Meh. Really, he needs to find someone his own age.

Gosh, I hated Jacob at the end of New Moon, now I really hate him at the end of Eclipse! He is so selfish, he can't let Bella be really happy with Edward. He always has to go and mess things up!

No offense to Team Jacobers, this is strictly my opinion.

On my first run through the first three instalments I didn't have a lot of love for Jacob. I liked his character enough but there was too much of him getting in the way of my Edward/Bella obsession. But upon rereading them way too many times I have a lot of love for Jake. I agree he's just has manipulative as the previous few posters have mentioned, but it doesn't bother me so much. Edwards behaved the same to a lesser extent and they are both just doing it out of desparation to win the heart of the one they love.

What I would love is for Bella to get a clue and realise the extent of all the game playing. Although she admitted to using the situation to her advantage also so I guess it could all just be chalked up to young love and discovering how to work through all those feelings.

As long as Edward gets what he wants and needs in the end I'm okay with it all. :D

Bella's epiphany: You love me.
Edward: Truly I do.
