It's hard because I love Edward, but he really starts to get on my nerves as the saga progresses. I understand how he's perfect for Bella. I wouldn't be as patient as Bella. I wouldn't respond well to his protectiveness or his mood swings. We would be the ultimate dysfunctional couple; we'd be all in love and happy and then I'd be screaming at him and we wouldn't talk for two weeks before we got back together again. I know you know the type .
For me, Jacob was always just right. He's obviously protective but he's not ridiculous about it and despite the wolfy tendencies he's very normal. I enjoy that Jacob says and does really stupid things, on occasion. I would develop a major complex if I was always the only one messing things up. I have a compulsive need to help people and there isn't much I could ever do for Edward. I would feel it was all take and no give.
I like a little adventure in my life too and Jacob seems to be able to embrace that without getting hurt (minus the fantasy creature fights). And I'm always so darn cold so his heat would be really nice. I'm also very sarcastic and quite blunt, Jacob shares the same tendency.
Jacob just feels more natural to me. Edward would be like a drug addiction, but Jake's more your favorite food - not something that'll scare you or come back to bite you (no pun intended). I feel like I could be away from him for a while without it causing any major rifts in my life. The power that Edward wields over Bella (totally not his fault, she's just crazy in love ) scares me and I'd always feel on edge.
I totally agree! Jacob is totally like your favourite food!
