A popular discussion on our posts is the whole Team Edward or Team Jacob ordeal. Our readers really battle it out with one another over which man is better, so I thought I’d give you guys an official arena to fight in. But first, let’s take a look at the pros and cons of Jacob and Edward.
– Edward is very polite and charming. Due to growing up in a different time period he is quite the gentleman.
– According to Bella, he is the most beautiful person on earth. Good looks are a big plus.
– Thanks to being a vampire, he has some pretty awesome powers, such as reading minds, super strength and super speed.
– He doesn’t drink human blood.
– Being so old makes him much wiser and knowledgeable than the young mortal boys. Intelligence is sexy.
– He’s a romantic.
– He sparkles in the sunlight, which is beautiful.
– He is very very protective of Bella and does everything he can to keep her safe.
– He’s rich.
– His skin sparkles in the sun. While some consider that a pro, many think it’s cheesy and lame.
– Being a vampire, he has a horrible blood lust. Being around someone that craves your blood constantly will makes things uncomfortable and frightening.
– He feeds on and kills animal, if you’re a big animal lover then you’ll hate this.
– He is dead and ice cold, which means he isn’t all that cuddly.
– He is too overprotective. This is another trait that can be seen as good or bad, personally I think it’s a bad thing. Edward is over-bearing and controlling. I have a mind of my own and can take care of myself, so I don’t want some man constantly telling me what to do.
– He breaks into Bella’s home and watches her sleep. Some see this as romantic, but most think it’s creepy and obsessive.
– He never sleeps or eats, which can cause some issues.
– He lives forever, you don’t (unless he changes you).
– He can’t go into the sunlight without alarming people.
– He is happy and cheerful. Bella describes him as her own personal sun.
– Being a werewolf, he is very warm. Which is great for cuddling, especially on cold days.
– He’s sexy.
– He also has awesome powers, like super speed and strength, as well as the power to shift into a beautiful wolf.
– He saves Bella from Laurent after Edward left her.
– He is funny.
– He is protective of Bella.
– In the movies, he has a WAY sexier body than Edward.
– He can go into the sunlight.
– You can have a semi-normal human relationship with him.
– Good with cars.
– He has a hell of a temper, which can be very dangerous if he loses control of his form.
– Being a new wolf, his control isn’t the best yet, which can also be dangerous.
– He is much younger than Edward and a bit more immature.
– He is also overprotective and controlling, but not quite as bad as Edward.
– He isn’t as wise and worldly as Edward.
– Jacob can be very aggressive.
– He lives with his dad and doesn’t have much money (for some that’s a big issue).
– He has a whole lot of teenage angst.
– He is a werewolf, some think of that as a turn off.
I shall stop my lists there and let you guys discuss your reasons for liking or disliking Jacob and Edward.
So, which are you? Team Edward or Team Jacob?
