A while ago I thought that Twilight was just another crappy bestseller and that there was no reason to get worked up over it, but the obsessiveness of some fans is really getting creepy. There's stories of girls leaving their boyfriends because they're not like Edward - and not just schoolgirls; there was a story about a married woman who didn't find her marriage satisfying after reading Twilight. And then there are those who try to get together with guys named "Edward" just because of their names. I mean, that is not normal.
I'm completely okay with people enjoying Twilight, but if you actually start letting it affect your real life relationships to this extent, there's something deeply wrong about it. And don't tell me that I'm getting too worked up over a book; I'm not trying to get together with someone because they share a name with a fictional character.
