people don't "need" to do anything. it's our right to converse about whatever aspects of bella we choose. it's your right not to participate in those discussions and/or change the discussion topic.

i DO like bella. i've said so in almost all my posts.

edward may be her first boyfriend, but why should that mean she doesn't have to show the other people in her life common decency? this relationship has eclipsed everything and everyone else in her life, and that is something i would expect to see in the relationship of a 14 year old, not a 17/18 year old.

out of curiosity, and for the sake of discussion, what makes you think that bella is such a thoughtful person, and we are so wrong???

and please know, that i, and anyone else here, has the right to disagree with whatever you may say, before you post those reasons, and we're not bashing you, just disagreeing. i'm not trying to be bossy, i just don't want a huge conflict 8)

Bella is... interesting. She's normal, but at the same time, she's not. Bella seems tough, but at the same time, she's fragile. Like I said before, Bella is interesting, but I would love to be her ;] Haha! Edward and Bella are the ideal forbidden couple that a lot of people would love to have together. It's funny how Bella is connected to vampires and werewolves. An accident prone. Bella, Bella, Bella.

When she becomes a vampire, I always wonder what her special talent is going to be. With many possibilities, hopefully, Stephenie Meyers has a special talent fitted perfectly for Bella.

It hasn't eclipsed everything in her life she wasn't really close with anyone in the first place and a couple of them started disliking her anyways and she still hung out with Jake even when Edward came back. And you usually see it in 14 year olds because that's their first relationship that's what I was trying to say. She'd never gone out with anyone before so she's not really experienced i guess. And no worries I know you don't totally think she's a bad person just annoyed with her :) .

when your significant other leaves you and you go into a catatonic state...when you can't be apart for more than a few hours...when you don't stand up to your significant other on behalf of your friends...that's called eclipsing your life. bella's life IS edward. and i know what you are saying, but what i am saying is that bella is three years older than that. she should be able to handle herself with a little more consideration for others, a little more maturity. that's all.

I guess I see your point but still I don't think she's as immature and selfish as most people think she is. Just saying..

I have a question

Post by bella3190 »

In New Moon why exactly does bella hear edward's voice? Is it because of the adrenaline of her doing stupid and reckless things, or is it because she is connected to him in some way? I've always been confused about that.

i don't think she's selfish. i think she's self centered, and i think that that really only manifests itself, just like her immaturity, when she is with edward, or dealing with issues concerning edward.

when she's with jacob, she's not solely focused on her and jacob, she interacts with everyone around her, she thinks of more than herself and jacob, she isn't so needy and dependent.

i don't think we'll see eye to eye either way.

but just to clear this up:

i don't, in any way, think bella's a bad person. i don't, in any way, think she is selfish - just self centered. i don't think she's irresponsible, uncaring, or really possesses any undesirable personality traits. i think she's weak. i don't really think she's her own person, and i think she's missing some parts of maturity. but i also think she can and will, easily, grow into a wonderful character and woman.

I always wondered about that too and I did come up with one theory but I'm not sure how accurate it is..

I think it's because before Edward left he basically told her not to kill herself or just basically not be her klutzy self and so every time she did the opposite of what he said she would hear his voice. Or it could be the fact that she remembered he said that and her imagination was making up what he would probably say to her if he was actually there.

wait what??

i'm so sorry, it's SOO late here, i'm so tired, your post seemed semi random to me, i'm not entirely sure what you were replying to.

but again, that's probably me, not you!! because it made sense it just seemed random. so i'm sure you'll tell me what you meant and i'll feel real dumb and it'll fit right into the rest of my life! :P

:D Srry sometimes I get really off topic I can be talking about one thing and completely change the subject. Anyways basically to sum it up I meant I don't think that Bella and Jacob would've ended up together even if Edward wasn't in the books just because of the fact Bella and Jacob didn't get close until Bella needed someone there for her to pull her out of her depression and get her back in the real world.
