I think the healthy difference is in how you say it...

I often say i am looking for MY Edward... which is not to say i am looking for Edward Cullen but for a guy who will love me as much as he loves Bella you know???

I think it is amazing naive to think you will ever find Edward Cullens in this world... people can share qualities with Edward that we like but they will never be him cos... well he's a vampire!

LOL

Let me just clarify here and say I'm not looking for an 'exact' replica of Edward. I know there will be no ice-cold, bronze-haired greek god who can jump up to my window. When I say I want to find my Edward I mean an intelligent guy. One who likes literature as much as I do. A gentleman who isn't crude (like so many boys are.....ugh my ex). Someone with the right kind of protectiveness, and no, he doesn't have to be rich. Someone with a brain and a lot of love is what I mean.

And I've been alone and been with a person who was way worse than what I wanted. It's preferable to be alone.....believe me! So I'm already without one, might as well enjoy the search!

i think it's fine to look for an edward but it worries me how SO MANY girls look at him with such rose colored glasses. i mean, some of the things he does are sweet in this book and i realize that they are used to prove a point but if they ever happened in real life it would really really worry me.

like, i almost wish SM would have put a disclaimer in Eclipse that said:

"girls. i know you all love edward. but i used his over protection in the beginning of this book as a literary device. if a boy EVER controls you the way edward was with bella, for WHATEVER reason, RUN."

now i know i'm probably going to get fed through the grinder for that one, but it was just an example. you could say the same about bella and her breakdown and stuff.

you know?
Yes, your right he does try to control her which is unhealthy, but he also changes when he realizes that its hurting her by doing this. You can't blame the man for being protective. I'm how many guys have to protect their girlfriends from vicious revengeful vampires.
If your going to talk about how controlling is was you have to turn the coin over and look at what he learned and changed from that.

I dont think he necessarily tries to CONTROL her. He is just over protective. He is just so in love with her that he wants nothing to happen to her, he wants to keep her safe and he wants to be the one to do it. Does he go a little overboard? sure. But its not that he is trying to control her its just that he loves her so much.

I don't think he tries to control her either, but he definitely is overprotective. I hated when he always assuming that he knew what was best for her...That caused more problems than anything else. Luckily, he started to get better with that towards the end of Eclipse...

Edward has flaws, so does jacob. and thats what makes the characters so interesting and so easy to relate with..because lets face it, none of us are perfect...

well, actually he only changes when he realizes it wont work, but i won't get into that.

you are right. absolutely. these circumstances will NEVER come up in real life. which is exactly why i worry about the message that's sending. like, it makes sense in the book, you know, because, well, it's a BOOK. but in real life...*shudders*. i just think it's possible that some girls may think that's ok, because so many already do, and they already think "oh he's just looking out for me". well, sorry, girlies, but there aren't really vampires, and there's no real excuse for that you know? in real life i mean.

and i've said it before and i'll say it again. i have never EVER had a problem with how edward feels about bella going to la push. i think it's ridiculous for him to be worried, but that's knowing what we, the reader, know about jacob. he doesn't have that benefit, and bella doesn't have the guts to tell him. so i understand his fear a hundred percent.

it's his ACTIONS i have an issue with. because we can't control how we feel, but we can control how we act. and it also bothers me that he feels he has the RIGHT to tell her what to do like that. because i distinctly remember her telling him how wrong it was, and him waving it off saying "i see your point, but you still can't go". that is where he crosses the line, and it should have ended. and if that were to ever happen in real life, it would be a very bad situation for the girl.

so all in all, i HAVE looked at the other side of the coin, and if i were actually talking about edward and his control issues, i would have said that, but i was just talking about the message it sends to girls who view him as "perfect".
"He was everywhere. The piercing sunlight turned my eyelids red, and the color fit, matched the heat. The heat was everywhere. I couldn't see or hear or feel anything that wasn't Jacob."

I love the way you worded it. You took the words out of my mouth.
It's fine for him to feel worried; I don't blame him for that. What I blame him for is his actions. In this case, actions speak louder than words (to me). I can't hold him accountable for his feelings, since they are understandable; I can hold him accountable for his actions. The difference is that to some people, his motivations make it forgivable. I have a harder time forgiving him for that.

I loved that last paragraph. In the book, it makes sense. In real life, it's bad. In real life, people would like... go to jail is they dismantled their girlfriends car and held them hostage someplace against their will. In real life, Edward wouldn't get away with a lot of those things. In the frame of the book, it's understandable; in real life, it's bad. And some girls I've met have a hard time drawing that distinction between make believe and reality =\ (but I'm one to talk, since I would trade my left ear to have Jacob be real... haha).
