He's is right up my alley of what I adore in a man. Faults & all. Far superior to any I have ever known personally and the ex doesn't even exist in the same universe as Edward Cullen. Of course, the ex doesn't exist as far as I'm concern - better that way.
I wanted to let this pass but the more I think about it I can't - what is up with these girls and women that they can't tell the different between a girly-man and a gentleman.
Just to clarify - The manners of a gentleman are shown by his refinement and his consideration of others feelings and wishes. Also - a biggie here - The willingness to practice self denial! Something most men don't do today and something that women should expect. It's sad - some females think that allowing a male to open doors, to pull out a chair for you is a dig or cut - well you get the idea. Gentlemen are all about making their lady feel special, protected and accommodating.
There are gentleman left in the world - they are few and far between. Edward was/is a gentleman - he killed his prey efficiently and fed without blood covering him. - Sorry - this just bothered me.
