You know what... I LOVE Jacob!! He's just as good as Edward!! He is so much less imperfect, and that's what makes him amazing!!! Bella's the idiot here! She has two amazing guys who are in love with her and she just keeps making it worse for everyone!!

Re: Discussion Topic: Jacob & Bella's Relationship

Jacob isn't ruining it for Edward and Bella!! First of all, it was ALL Edward's fault that he left to "protect" Bella. Come on! That is total crap! Then it was freaken Bella's fault for leading Jacob on, so Jacob should take NONe of the blame for this!! It is Edward and Bella who caused all of the problems!!!

Re: Discussion Topic: Jacob & Bella's Relationship

Personally I think people are hating to much on Jacob.  He may not be the "ONE" for Bella but he does love her just as she loves him.  It is just a different kind of love. 

 

HERE is a shock to some of the younger readers; you MAY fall in love more than once in your life, in fact most people do. 

 

 Each love is different but it is love and you can be happy with anyone you set your mind too loving.  It may not be the Edward and Bella kind of love but sometimes it is sweeter, kinder, and more enduring.   Stephenie Meyer even said that she loves Jacob’s character and that it is not a matter of good versus bad but good versus good. 

 

 I'm 28 and sometimes I think that younger readers are to use to having black and white situation.  Sorry but there is a gray zone and life sometimes means that good people get hurt.  I know that Edward and Bella belong together, and in a way, so dos Jacob.  That doesn't mean he can help the way he feels.  Sometimes you love people who can't love you back the way you want them too; knowing that doesn't make it hurt any less.

 

 As for the comment that Bella “mothered” Jacob, is it any different than the way Edward treated her?  Telling Bella that he “knew” better what was best for her?  Treating her like a child to be locked into a room with a babysitter?  He may have had fantastic reasons for what he did but honestly, doesn’t that sound like what a parent would do to a child?  He did change this, which is why I do love Edward for Bella. Jacob at least was always straight up and treated her as an equal intelligent being who had a right to hear the whole truth and make a decision.  If you can’t make a choice without knowing the whole truth, or what both options entail (even if it is painful) then your choice means nothing.

 

Personally I don’t think Bella is good for Jacob.  She was selfish in a way.  Yes, she had to be but still, poor Jacob!  Jacob deserves some one who will love him more than anyone else.  It’s not Bella’s fault, the way she feels about Edward.  That is right for her.  They were meant to be together.  As for the way Jacob acts, anyone who has ever loved anyone knows that even the best people do stupid things.  Look at the way Bella fell apart after Edward left. Right or wrong, the “ONE” love or love, Jacob has a right to hurt and grieve the best way he knows how.  He’ll do stupid things, but then again so does everyone.  Look at Edward who tried to kill himself.  What would that have done?  If you really love someone then the greatest tribute to him or her is to keep that love alive even if it just in a memory because once that is gone then so is the love you shared.  As long as someone remembers you, loves you, you can’t be completely gone. 

 

Why isn't anyone giving Bella a hard time for what she did to Jacob and Edward?  I mean, who was the one who kept going back to Jacob?  Who kept Bella sane when Edward left?  Who taught her to have fun, to, for once in her life, act like a kid?  Again, Bella is not right for Jacob, but Meyers knew what she was doing when she wrote Jacob the way she did.  He is a great guy and three-dimensional.  No one is perfect. I could never love a perfect person; they would annoy the heck out of me! Edward is great; I have no beef with him.  But please stop blaming everything on Jacob!

Re: Discussion Topic: Jacob & Bella's Relationship

Well, i also think jacob should be out of the picture, because bella's and edward's love is undestructible;I mean I LOVE jacob , he's funny , cout ,VERY warm, idk  i really like him , but i also like edward, so its hard to decide. ok tell me what di u think bout this: the cover of Eclipse has a red ribbon right?, so i think it represents the bond bella and jacob have, and as u can see its kind of broken but not completely broken , so tell me , what do YOU think?

Re: Discussion Topic: Jacob & Bella's Relationship

[ Edited ]

You can love more than one person at a time!Jacob is perfect for anyone really.

It really made me mad when Bella was so oblivious to that fact. It made me want to go insane. I kept thinking in New Moon when Bella and Edward went back to the house after Volterra, "WHAT THE PHELPS ARE YOU DOING??? YOU'RE BREAKING JACOB'S HEART FOR A GUY THAT LEFT YOU? HOW SICK IS THAT!" Yeah, I'm still a little livid about how Breaking Dawn turned out.

Jacob is perfect, human, and HAWT! I mean, what is Bella's deal? She gave her life for a person who dazzles her and says "I love you" all day long. Nothing else! At least with Jacob she had a life!!!

Everyone should stop blaming Jacob for everything, too. Give the guy a break. He's sixteen. He's gonna make some mistakes. But you have to admit, all and all, he's a really good guy.

TEAM JACOB! Woot, woot!

Re: Discussion Topic: Jacob & Bella's Relationship

Distance does affects Bella relationship with Jacob.  She doesn't realize it as first, but she begins to long for him, not in the exact same way as Edward, but more is there than she wants to acknowledge to herself.

Re: Discussion Topic: Jacob & Bella's Relationship

OMG! I agree 99.99999 percent! Jacob is so wonderful. He is better for her in more ways than not . They totally click when they are together. . . I just cant get over Edward. The constant struggle he has with being around Bella is so . . .I dont know.Oh well . Anyway though if Jacob didnt turn into a monstrous DOG there wouldnt be any competiton. Jacob all the way.

Re: Discussion Topic: Jacob & Bella's Relationship

People who say Edward should be out of the picture are WEIRDOS!!!! Have you ever read Mdnight Sun on stephenie's site????? Edward really falls in love with Bella. Jacob should just give up trying because he knows he will never ever have Bella. The only reason i like Jacob is because the guy who plays him is so HOT!!!!
