First off, Who Is Edward Anyway?
In short, Edward is every woman’s fantasy. He's handsome (pause), he’s got a rock-hard body (pause), he’s wealthy, he’s smart, he’s articulate, and he’s kind. He’s perfect -- except for one little problem. He’s a vampire and desperately desires the blood of that whore from Adventureland
Of course you’re thinking, “So what? I don’t get it. Why do women love this guy so much?” I was the same way but I've finally realized that this Edward guy is the real deal...and here's why...the superficial things listed above aren’t really it. The real reasons women love Edward go much deeper, and are things you can do even better than him.
Trust me fellas...listen up
Edward chooses BellaIn the story, the characters are in high school. Edward could have easily had his choice of any of the girls in school, even the ones deemed absolutely perfect by anyone’s standards. The prom queen, captain of the cheerleader squad or my choice (his sister) but Bella is a typical girl and only sees her shortcomings (sound familiar?). She doesn’t think she is in his league, yet for some reason, one she can’t quite figure out, Edward chooses to be with her.
Be even better than Edward: Make sure she knows you chose her. This is not to say you want to flaunt your desirability in her face (chances are she, like Bella, is well aware), but rather ensure she knows you chose her. No girl wants to think you settled with her or that you’re only with her because there’s no one better right now. She wants to feel special, so let her know that even if you were given any option in the world you’d still choose her.
Edward sacrifices his own comfort to be with BellaVampires drink human blood, Bella is awfully tempting, but he denies his thirst to be with her.
Be even better than Edward: Do a little sacrificing of your own. Women think it’s romantic when you willingly (key word is "willingly") give up something for her. It can be something as simple as skipping your typical game night ritual with your buddies to run errands with her, or something more significant such as going to visit her family over the holidays. This sometimes is the hardest thing to do.
Edward has impeccable mannersEdward is always polite and shows proper respect to everyone -- his family, his teachers, even his enemies, and especially the important people in Bella’s life.
Be even better than Edward: Be a little old-fashioned yourself. Always do the basic chivalrous things your dad taught you: open her doors, help her with her jacket, pull out her chair, walk closest to the street, etc. And don’t do this only for her, but for all women. Show respect not just to your girl, but to the important people in your life and hers. Dave Chappelle said "chivalry is dead and women killed it" but make the attempt fellas...it'll go a long way.
Edward is a total contradictionHe is a vampire. He should be sadistic and feast on humans. Instead, he is incredibly kind and subsists on the blood of animals to remain humane. Bottom line: he just isn’t what he appears.
Be even better than Edward: Be unpredictable and surprise her. If you’re a manly man who's into the stereotypical guy things, surprise her by developing a domestic hobby such as cooking, or suggesting (and actually enjoying) the occasional chick flick. If you’re a really athletic guy, be a contradiction by suggesting the two of you take dance classes or piano lessons. If you’re not a man of many words, surprise her by expressing yourself through a heartfelt, handwritten letter. Get it? The point is to illustrate you aren’t all that you seem either.
Channel your inner EdwardNow you have almost enough background to carry on an intelligent conversation with her about Edward (OK, maybe not, and you probably don’t want to, but at least now you know what she’s talking about). Practice a few of these tricks and you will never have to wonder when you’re together if she’s thinking about Edward instead of you.
Sidenote, I am not going to see New Moon because I had a girlfriend who read all the books and told me what happened, plus it's not out here yet and I have too much pride to ask a teammate to go with me...but I do hope one day that I could be more like an Edward Cullen...oh man that hurt to say
