OK – I know Twilight is all romantic/blah blah blah, and I know any girls reading this post know all this, but I just I want to make sure you get it (and you dads of daughters).
Here’s what I mean:
NOT SMART girls (I’m trying to be charitable) think “He’s so cute! I don’t care if he’s a vampire/werewolf. I’ll ruin my eternity/family/people I love and get my life’s blood sucked out of me and my existence will be one long nightmare b/c I’m in love and love conquers all.”
NOT SMART girls think “He’s so cute! I don’t care that he beats me all the time and all my friends tell me he’s a jerk and one day he’ll beat my children b/c I’m in love and love conquers all.”
NOT SMART girls think “He’s so cute! I don’t care that he’s drunk or high all the time and all my friends tell me he’s a user and one day he may kill one of our kids driving drunk and my life will be one long nightmare b/c I’m in love and love conquers all.”
The beauty of NOT being married is that when you meet that vampire or werewolf or abuser or drunk or druggie…you have no commitment to them so you can go find a a good guy to marry! NOT make your entire future a train wreck b/c you think bad guy is the only guy for you.
OH – one more thing – since Edward is like 100 years old, and Bella is underage, doesn’t that make Edward a major creeper?
PS: I only know about this b/c I have a teenage daughter and so its part of my job. Otherwise I’d be writing about shooting guns or explosives or something manly like that…
