"am disgusted that out of these fifteen signs of being in an abusive relationship, Bella and Edward show eleven and a half of these signs. That’s well beyond unhealthy and almost sinister.You can defend Edward, saying he’s only being the…"
"Yes, and no. he does speak a lot about dying but your reasons why are wrong. These are not based on if Bella dies or leaves him; but if HE were the cause of her death/having to live without her in the world, and not at…"
"14) He has a past of battering.I doubt that’s true. Unless you count him grabbing Bella’s arm without her consent to put her in his car and bruising her during sex.
grabbing Bella’s arm without her consent
Did that happen? If so,…"
"13) He has sudden mood swings.This one is self-explanatory. Edward is all about having fun with Bella and then suddenly he will become dark and say he will go to hell for being a monster. He confuses Bella about his feelings when he hates and avoids…"
"12) There are rigid gender roles.Edward expects Bella to do as he says, to submit to his wishes and demand.
This is too vague to make a point. However, in general, I would say that it would be common sense for the person who is the one more…"
"10) His ‘playful’ use of force during sex.Well, not sex, but perhaps marriage. He is pretty much forcing Bella to marry him, claiming he won’t change her until after they are married. He has this control over Bella, because she…"
"9) He is cruel to animals and children.Not so sure about this, unless the whole eating-animals-to-survive counts.
Please fill me in on the child he abused? and before you dig a hole...To be abusive to Bella's pregnancy would mean…"
8) There is hypersensitivity.He complains constantly about being a vampire, about the smell of Bella’s blood and what it does to him. He is easily insulted, especially where thinking of Bella a certain way is concerned (Mike Newton, Jacob…"
"7) He makes everyone else responsible for his feelings.“If you weren’t so attractive, I wouldn’t have to leave you.” Just one example – he makes Bella feel inferior because she thinks she is the cause of Edward leaving…"
"6) He blames others for his own mistakes.Okay, so he blames himself a lot of the time, but this is also unhealthy. Some things were Bella’s fault and Edward continuously and consistently takes the blame, so Bella hardly learns from her…"
5) There is isolation.This is strong. Edward, from the start, is slowly withdrawing Bella from Jessica, Mike, Angela and Eric and her mother, Phil and Charlie. Bella is willing to follow him anywhere and she repeatedly neglects to email Renee, to…"
I'm a Potterhead but I also enjoy the Twilight Saga to an extent.
My favourite music artist is Taylor Swift.
I have the first Harry Potter book memorised word for word.
I don't think the Twilight actors were all that good. Except Billy Burke and Ashley Greene.
I think Seth is adorable.
I've just finished year 12 (Senior Year) and am doing TAFE specialising in early childhood development. I hope to travel in 2 to 3 years and do nannying jobs in America, England and Australia, maybe Germany if I can be bothered to keep up with my German.
When Did You First Read Twilight (year) and how many times have you read a Twilight Book (total)?
I first read Twilight in 2008 and have read all four books twice.
Team Edward or Team Jacob? Why?
Team Jacob. Edward is abusive and controlling, but Jake is awesome and sweet and kind. Except for his angsty wolfy emotions.
Which Character Are You Most Like?
Probably Leah. I'm the girl who lost the guy to someone close to me but unlike her I don't wallow in self-pity. I'm a tomboy and much prefer hanging out with guys.
Harry Potter. No Twilight doesn't fit into my list of favourite books because I don't think it was that well-written. But Harry Potter was carefully thought of by a virtually homeless woman for fifteen years before she wrote the first book and almost every intricate detail was woven into the bigger story. Twilight has a lot of plotholes - Nessie to be exact. Don't get me wrong - I love Nessie as much as the next person, but Edward has no blood flow...if you know what I mean.
What is Your Favorite Music
Taylor Swift definitely. She's adorably sweet and a talented musician. I also love Train, Shakira, Avril Lavigne, Delta Goodrem, Jessica Mauboy, Jet, Evanescance, One Direction and Nickelback.
Favorite Movies, TV Shows, Games:
Once Upon a Time
Any Disney movie
"It is impossible to fail at life, unless you don't try, in which you have not lived at all and have failed by default." JK Rowling.
"Be the person you want to be, not the person everyone else wants you to be." Emma Watson
I sing in my spare time and attend choir rehearsal once a week, I love watching my sister play tennis, reading, walking my dog and cat, listening to music, watching movies and hanging out with friends.

While you handled my comments with nothing but grace, I see you closed it immediately after you posted your last comments. This says to me that I am the reason and for that I am so sorry. I will not go back if you want to open it up again. I was not out to insult you but hoped to share with you another viewpoint to it all…just for consideration. I apologized it did not come out that way.
