Jazz Girl wrote: So the question is this: Why is it Bella and the majority of the rest of the female population so dramatically and completely drawn to Edward? Is it, at least in part, his feminine side? Is it his innate maleness? Is it something else? I have my own theories that include nothing about Edward being in good touch with his feminie side. But, I am more interested in your theories?

If that's the case, well- so sorry to disappoint.
Let's not even go into how they're comparing a mind that grew up in the early 1900's to a modern man. What passes for "accepted" (I refuse to say "normal," because that's highly subjective) masculine behavior now does not match what was accepted then exactly. And being eloquent in his thoughts is feminine? I do that when I write. I am somehow reminded of Francis in A Bug's Life- getting in touch with your feminine side. /shrug
I can't say why women are attracted to Edward, because they're attracted to different things. I will say that I don't think it's because he's a "middle-aged woman in a man's body." Everything about Edward practically screams manhood- hunter, protector, provider. Just because he's in tune with his feelings and his relations doesn't make him any less of a man.
