Actually Lacuna, that makes perfect sense. I can understand what you mean about Edward. While he has lived many more years than Jacob or Bella, he does seem to be naive in some ways. Perhaps this is due to the era he was raised in. But I feel at times he tends to hold back because he does his best to always be polite. Jake just says what he has to say and doesn't really care whether you like it or not. I like the direct approach in a man. Boy. Wolf. Whatever.
And forgive me Edward fans, but there's just always been something weird about finding the kiss of a cold statue like boy more appealing than a warm blooded one. I love Edward and Bella and am happy they found their way together in the end, but I just don't get how lying on cold stone marble could ever be physically attractive. Another reason why I chose Jake for me. I'm always cold so I need the additional heat!
