Jacob is more up front with his emotions. He has always been honest with Bella about his feelings for her even after she told him how she feels about him.
I personally believe that both Jacob and Edward have the ability to make Bella happy. Jacob and Bella would be able to produce a family of their own. She'll be able to keep her human life with the human people in it. With Edward, I also think a family of their own is possible even if she is immortal. (did anyone watch the Buffy spinoff Ange? two vampires had a baby on there!) Even if that's not the case Edward would still be able to provide Bella with a family - the Cullens.

But maybe Jake has already imprinted on Bella.. I know most of you will say she has to belong to Jakes tribe to be imprinted on.. But what if she is related to them in someway and that is why she has those dreams... Also it could be why her connection to Jake is so strong.. As far as the differences between the two most of it is age and experience.. I feel that the reason Bella was so free with Jake is that she wasn't worried about losing him or not being good enough for him and that is why there relationships seem so different..

I HOPE he's more child-like than Edward--he's only teenager! He's VERY grown up for a teen. He's two years younger than Bella! Edward has had a century to learn things, cultivate himself, etc etc.
I don't think one character is "better" than the other--they are ust different. Both have their good qualities and bad qualities.
Also, even when Jake WAS mad, he never shifted while with Bella. Although he MIGHT shift, he hasn't yet.
It's just like with Edward--he COULD hurt her, but he hasn't yet. Edward says that he has to be VERY careful around her so that he doesn't accidentally crush her skull in one of the books (or one of Meyes outtakes). Edward has to be careful when kissing Bella so the venom doesn't get in her system. Also, Bella's blood sings to him...even though he has shown considerable restraint from trying to kill Bella while she's bleeding, etc.
Edward gets angry, too--he just does a better job at keeping his face stoney. Jake wears his emotions right the surface--you never doubt how he's feeling.

What differences do you see in the ways that Jacob and Edward show their respective love for Bella? How does what they can give to Bella differ?

As for the Jacob and Edward debate. Jacob and Bella have a very immature relationship. A relationship that would be expected of people their age. They may love each other for the moment but who's to say it will continue for the rest of their lives? They fight over petty things and do not resolve their conflicts easily. They hold grudges.
As for Edward, one thing I noticed while reading the series is that Bella can talk to Edward about anything. He may seem flustered at the time but he never truly gets mad at her. She feels comfortable talking it out with him and him with her. Although Bella may keep certain things from Edward she never hesitates to tell him how she feels. Their relationship is very mature. Most people I know do not even have a relationship with this. Their talking turns into arguing. They do not compromise that well.Compromise is one thing Edward constantly thinks of. The way Edward and Bella communicate shows promise for their future relationship. They aren't afraid to hold back.

but that doesnt mean edward takes away all the fun. hes not dull! his calm and coolness is the very exciting part about him! hes more of a rationalized thinker compared to rash and annoying jacob. hes more capable of protecting bella than jake is.
and also, edward deserves bella a lot more too. cuz hes been thorugh SO much more pain that jake has [being like 200 years old or something], and hes a lot more selfless than jacob. jacob is stupid and selfish. doesnt think about the feeelings of others at all.
and i personally like edwards family better than jakes. emmett and alice are so funny! alice is cute. jasper is pretty cool. i dont like rosalie tho. esme and carlisle r SO nice and thotful.
I don't want to be the night,
but to be the moon instead, so that I can shed light and make sure you're never lonely.

That's why he wasn't angry in Eclipse when they kissed. On the other hand Jacob only wants her to be with him. He doesn't care if she isn't happy with him he just wants her. It's kind of like the whole King Solomon thing were he said cut the baby in half and the mother who cared the most said No! give it to her I would gladly spare my child to see it alive. Edward is the mother who cried no because he cares for Bella the most. While Jacob just thinks he needs her. And thinking of this now Edward really does need her. They are good for eachother, Edward and Bella,. Think about when they went to vist Renee in Florida. She said they naturally form to each others bodies. Does that mean anything to you Jacob lovers?Fire and Icesome say the world will end in firesome say in icefrom what i've seen of desirei hold with those who favor firebut if it had to perish twicei've known enough hate to knowthat for destruction iceis also greatand would suffice
i totally agree with you. i think Edward and Bella should be together
and that Edward just completely loves her!
