5 Reasons Why Twilight Is NOT A Guide For Your Love Life

Don't let your obsession with Edward Cullen suck the life out of your future relationships.

There are millions of people all over the world that are fans of the Twilight saga. They are addicted to this mystical love of Bella and Edward, have read all books, and seen all the movies about this unusual relationship. They look very romantic together, but this addiction is definitely not good for your love life or your POV on the important things in life.

1. There's no such thing as vampire boyfriend.

Come on, a vampire? Dracula is the most popular vampire and I've never heard of someone thinking he's sexy. I've definitely never heard millions of women screaming his name, either. If you think that it's romantic to have a vampire for a boyfriend, then I can tell that you have suicidal thoughts.

2. Edward is a pedophile.

Edward is 86 and way older than Bella. Many women think that an age difference of 20 years is too old for them, but when it comes to Edward, all beliefs go right out the window. You can say, "but he's good looking for 103 years old" or "his mind is old." Oh, come on. If you think that a 70-year-old man has an old mind, then how come Edward is so young at heart?

3. You start to believe it's good to chase a man who doesn't want to be with you.

Okay, so Bella and Edward ended up together and lived happily ever after, but in the beginning Edward didn't want to be with Bella. In the movies and novels, this was because "it was good for her," but is this what you want to hear from a man? If you fall in love with a man who is only there when he needs you, but runs away when you need him, that isn't love. You can start thinking that love requires patience, which is true, but it doesn't mean you will catch somebody if you run after him. If somebody loves you, they will be there all the time. Just like Jacob.

4. You think it's good to have a friendship with somebody who is in love with you.

Jacob loves Bella, but she always tells him that she only loves him as a friend. It's not good to constantly break someone's heart by spending a lot of time with them and creating false hope. Yes, Jacob knows that Bella loves Edward, but he holds out hope that she will change her mind. Don't act bitchy and be good to every person that loves you.

5. You might think it's okay to be desperate.

We all have bad days, months and even years. Life is tough, but life is also beautiful. It all depends on how you see it. In these movies, I can count on fingers how many times I saw all the characters smiling, except Bella. Bella never smiles. Never. The whole Twilight saga just looks like a big funeral. Do you want to live your life as if you are at a funeral? No, of course you don't. Just smile and think positive. You don't want your life to look like everyone is dead, or almost dead.
