It is weird that reading the Twilight books and getting on the Lex were the start of my self doubt and exploration also. Before coming on the Lex I was very isolated. I had moved several times for my husbands work and had to keep making and leaving friends. I finally pretty much gave up. I just dove into taking care of my kids and not doing anything for me. I too have met some great people on the Lex and also the Dex. I have also had some real heart breaking relationships with some of them. When you don't have understanding of why and what you are doing and are not used to interacting with people, you do and say things that upset people even though all you are trying to do is fit in and be a friend. Not everyone has the patience to deal with a person going through life crap. Heck I didn't even have patience with myself.

And I am having a high school like crush on Robert Pattinson. For my thoughts, I should be locked up. I can't get enough. My son thinks I am crazy, I have my 3 yr grandson favorite song is Full Moon from the Twilight soundtrack. In the van one day he made me play it 5 times in a roll plus turn it up loud! LOL I gave my mom the book, and took her to the movie after she read it, then gave her New Moon book. She wanted to see the movie again, so we went again and the weekend it came out in DVD my mother had hers before mine. She is also waiting for NM to come out and keeps asking me when, I won't give her Eclispe or BD till she see NM. But its fun and its great that it not only expands ages but worldwide. This is phenomenal and the book has taken hold of people, and underlining all is a good message out there for the teenagers.
Katwomankath wrote:diane771- welcome to the 40+ thread. I'm happy you have found us. I too get to listen to the soundtrack over and over. My 12 year old daughter plays it. Funny, but I introduced her to the books instead of the other way around. I understand how you feel about the books making you feel younger. They have given me a ton of food for thought and got the wheels turning in my brain. Stephenie does a great job of bringing her characters to life and puts into words the emotions we have all felt. It is easy to identify with her characters because we have all lived the emotions in one way or another that these characters portray.
To me age is all about experiences and how they shape you as a person. Before I found the Lex I kept to my self and shared nothing with anyone about myself. It was easier than being rejected or ridiculed. It is always hard to break into an existing group of people. I found out even on the Lex it can be heartbreaking. I hope this thread will always be welcoming and open to all who want to join in and hope that I will never make anyone uncomfortable. I hope to be able to acknowledge everyone and make them feel like they are valued as a person instead of just an annoyance, someone to make fun of, or ignore. I believe in talking things out and saying what is on your mind. I may not agree with you but I will respect you. To me the most disrespectful thing you can do to is a person is not acknowledge them. It shows a lack of character and they feel the other person is beneath them. I is a bit like watching a group of 12 year old girls with their whispering, secrets and lack of maturity.
Has anyone over time had a change of feeling for one or more of the characters? The reason I ask is because I started out being a full on Edward over Jacob person and with reading the books a few more times, life experiences, and just time I have had a change of heart. I have not turned totally against Edward but I am liking Jacob more and more. I really hated Rose at first but I have come to understand her more. I have many more examples but I'll start there.
I am looking forward to seeing what they do with the New Moon movie but I am very fearful. They didn't get into the characters properly with Twilight so I am afraid it is just going to head even farther from the true story line of the books.
I really hate deviation from original stories I have read or even remakes of songs that I have loved.
Navaree I agree my Twilight books are some of my most prized possessions and I can't seem to shake the pull to this saga no matter how many books I read.
Bewitched I hope you are doing well with your decisions about work and schooling. It is nice to hear that I am not alone in some of my strange emotions and feelings.
JoanneMaria - haven't seen you on here for a while I hope all is well.
