- I remembered hating Jessica and Laurent, wanting to slap Bella and Angela, I don't know if you noticed this but Angela is Bella in a normal human relationship...she has the human safe boyfriend but she devotes her self to Ben like Bella does to Edward, that might be the reason Edward and Ben got along.
- I discovered something else that might also be important (to me any ways) Jacob is Bella's rebound guy, the guy that made you feel safe after a hard breakup, the one who comforted you and brought you back from the edge so you transfer all your feelings from your lost relationship into this new guy and depending on how much you let yourself feel it's an instant relationship or borderline friendship.
- I think Jake felt it as well and tried to be everything Bella needed him to be. This is the problem with that type of relationship and the reason they never last: the girl doesn't allow herself to get over the last guy (Edward) so she's still hung up on him, thus being unable to move on. The rebound guy being unable to show his true self, usually stuck in the friend zone, decides to be the best friend she will ever have hoping she will someday realize her mistake and fall for him.
This Bella is a no, no...while we're at it, so is this...even though it's more of a HELL NO!
