I was all set to be all into Jared, seeing as the book is called a love triangle with two bodies, but he just..ugh. Anyway, not to digress, Ian, on the other hand, I liked just about from the very beginning. When he was talking to Jeb, reasoning with him right after they found Wanderer and Melanie in the desert, I had the feeling he couldn't be all bad. And I love the way he was always willing to give people the benefit of the doubt (except for Kyle) or the way he changes his mind.
I know Ian is desperate to have and keep, but you have to think: these people have seen the end of their world, their species almost. They have nothing left. They think there's no one left. Kyle had a girlfriend and Jared had Melanie, but both women were taken by the souls. Ian (as far as we know) never had anyone. They say it's better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. Therefore, Kyle and Jared are actually better off than Ian because they got the girls for however short a time. When Ian finds Wanda, he finds that person who fits with him in all ways. Wouldn't you be kind of desperate to keep that person if you were in the same position? I'm almost certain I would. It's amazing to think that he was willing to forgo his happiness just to keep Wanda around in Mel's body. He tells her she can have Jared if that's what she wants. He just wants her around and to be safe. I think that's incredibly selfless on his part. .....Lucky for him, Jared and Mel weren't the same, and they were able to keep Wanda around.
And yeah, guys should read The Host to see how to treat a woman. Minus the whole I'm-gonna-strangle-you-now part, of course!

I love Ian! He would do anything in the world for his Wanda.
btw just read it yesterday and ahh in love!
yea, tell me about it! i can honestly say i've never been desperately wanted by anyone. which sucks considering i'm married....i think all men should have to read twilight and the host to see how they are supposed to treat a woman.

I couldn't have said it better myself!! He is perfect because he isn't perfect. Does that make sense?? I really started liking him the moment I realized that he had fallen in love with Wanda and had become her protector, as soon as he started taking care of her alot. He is just so caring no matter what, he really did love her for who she was- not what she looked like. One of my favorite lines though was when he said "I held you, and you were so beautiful." (When he put her into her new body) It almost made me cry!! Even though she is a different species he still loves her- that is the kind of love I want from a man!! He is also almost completely selfless...
Seriously Stephenie!! How can you come up with such perfect men?!?!?
