So sorry to all the Jake-fans if I offended them they were all pointing out Edwards imperfections so I thought I would point out Jakes too. He can be rash sometimes and a little immature but he does have good intentions. Just like Edward who can be controlling and overprotective but he does it out of love. They both do.
Yes, but Jake kissed her not out of "curiosity" or "wanting to give into himself". He kissed her because he thought it would make her see she loved him, and because he thought she wanted her to. As I said, Bella has led him on. She probably was subconsciously acting like it's what she wanted. He wanted her to see that she loved him, because he wanted to save her life. Curiosity probably had something to do with it, but it wasn't his first priority.

I understand your point, though. Both characters have flaws. But I like Jake's motivations and reasonings and perspective a lot more, so I find it easier to forgive him than I do Edward.

If you can't put your opinions tactfully enough that they're not going to annoy someone else (and yes, on a message board that means going the extra mile to put avoid extreme statements of your position!) please don't post them. Debate is interesting. Arguments are no fun. We can all tell which is which.

And remember......these characters mean a lot to people here. That doesn't mean you can't criticize them, but...do it nicely. Like you would if you were talking to someone about a friend of theirs. Like you'd want people to talk about your friends. SERIOUSLY....

Be nice. Or the Management will probably come close down this conversation.
AMEN!! jeez, i felt like i was going to get sick from all the bickering & slamming of characters- if you hate the characters so much, why are you signed onto a messageboard, obviously reading the books & giving crude remarks that will obviously upset alot of people?
I probably got a little too fiesty. sorry. I'm a wee bit opinionated.

Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut, I don't hate all the characters. And I have as much of a right to express my opinion as anyone else on the board, even if it will upset a lot of people. I'm sorry if I offended you or anyone else, though.

They involve introducing you to a roll of duct tape. I'm sure you two will be great friends.

ouch and unnecessary.
Wow ...I'll say. This will be my last post here. I sure didn't come here to be insulted just for expressing my opinion. I tried to argue my point in an intelligent and coherent way and sure didn't insult anyone or say something mean like this. I felt so welcome here in my introduction with all the nice posts that followed, but I'm rethinking that. I don't want to post in a place where people are mean just because you said something they don't agree with...I'll go find friendlier threads here...

so if you love someone its ok to kiss them even if they're with someone else? All Jake did in the end is hurt himself more...yes Bella realized she loved him but it doesnt matter because she still chose Edward.

Of course it's not okay. I don't think it was right of Jake to do that. He shouldn't have. You shouldn't kiss people in relationships. I was saying that I don't think it's completely his fault-- I think Bella is to blame as well, because she led him on and led him to believe she wanted it. I was saying I understand why Jake did it.

Yeah, he hurt himself more. But he would have hurt worse if he hadn't tried to save her. He would've hurt worse if he would've just sat back and watched her throw her life away. He knew he probably wouldn't win, and that he'd hurt in the end, but he knew it would hurt worse not to try. I know that's how I would feel-- yeah, it would hurt me when I lost. But it would hurt me a hundred times more if I didn't at least try. If he hadn't tried, he always would have wondered "what if". And it's good that Bella realized she loved him before she became a vampire. It's better for her to know beforehand than for her to wake up as a vampire and all the sudden realize she loved Jake. She would have wondered "what if", too. And now she knows. I think Jake could have found ways to do it other than kissing her against her will, but all the same, it's good that he did it.

I love (mostly) all the character`s, but if i HAD to chose, my Favorite would have to be Alice and/or Edward, I can`t chose witch one I like more. There such loveable character`s, Alice being so happy and bright. How she makes you laugh, and how her bubbly-ness is contagious. And Edward, so calm and caring. He`s so selfless that he tries to make you feel happy around him, you couldn`t be un-happy around him if you tried.
The characters I hate would have to be Jessica...have you read the first chapter of midnight sun on Stephanie`s website? She is a horrible person, once you see what she`s thinking...
Jessica:'Crushing on the Cullen`s already...'"There the Cullen`s, The blond one`s are Jasper and Rosalie. The Large one is Emmett, the small girl is Alice and the other boy is Edward." Bella:"Who`s the one with the redish brown hair?"
Jessica:'Oh, good luck idiot!'"That`s Edward,...
She`s evil, almost as evil as...
Jane, the other character I hate the most. I hate her power, her personality, her appearance, everything about her! I ope she dies in breaking dawn...

I'm halfway through New Moon, so it may be a little hard to make that choice.

The only characters I'm not getting a good vibe from are Roaslie and Billy. I'm not saying they're not good people, I'm just stating that..I just don't like them, haha.
