Well, I can understand why Jake would like her.
When she's with Jake, she can hold her own. She can be her own person. She's more independent, more "fiesty", able to stand on her own two feet, able to stick up for herself, etc. She's absolutely right when she says there is "Edward's Bella" and "Jake's Bella". She's a totally different person when she's with Jake. I like her more with Jake... she doesn't annoy me quite as much with him.
You know, I've decided that Bella needs lessons in perspective too.
All throughout Eclipse, she treats Jake like dirt. She doesn't take the time to even think about what Jake is telling her until the end of the book. She doesn't stop to think about why he's doing what he's doing until the end of the book. All she cares about is, "Edward. Become vampire. Sex. Sex. Sex. Sex."
Even with Victoria, too. I obviously understand why she'd be terrified... but she acts like Victoria is this evil little monster. She's mean, but she's not exactly the "bad guy". She just wants revenge for James. It's like Rosalie; she killed Royce because she wanted revenge. People sympathize with Rosalie because of that and say it's not wrong she killed them. But they act like Victoria is absolutely evil, when Victoria is just doing the same thing Rose did. If someone killed Bella, Edward would probably do the same thing (kill the person who killed her). Same with Alice/Jasper, Emmett/Rosalie, etc. Soooo even though I get why Bella is scared (I would be too), it's like... "DUDE! It's completely understandable that she'd go after you! She's not exactly the "bad" guy!". That's how I see it, anyways.
Even with Sam, a little bit. Even after she finds out about why he has his "gang", she has a hard time getting over her past opinion of him. I guess that's understandable too, but still...
