Love Lessons We Can Learn From Twilight

Loyal and romantic -- we can learn more from the Vampires in Twilight than just how to get by without sleep and sparkle in the sun --  they can also teach us a thing or two about relationships. Here are lessons -- both good and bad -- we can learn from vampire love.

Moody Guys Suck

When it comes to Twilight, we're Team Edward all the way. But in real life, we're so over the whole moody-broody guy thing. Of course, you can (and should!) forgive your man's occasional funk -- but look for someone who sees the positive side of life and your relationship. "Excessive moodiness is not a healthy sign in a partner," says Louise Deacon, author of Twilight, True Love and You: Seven Secret Steps to Finding Your Edward or Jacob. "Sudden changes in mood from cheerful to furious, without any good reason is a warning sign of possible domestic violence. Studies show that the most satisfied couples are those where both partners are stable and positive."

To determine if your beau is just going through a tough time or if his erratic emotions are part of his personality, ask your man how he'd like you to handle his moods, suggests Dr. Helen Fisher, chief scientific advisor for Chemistry.com. Or simply tell him you're leaving the room and returning in half-an-hour -- that will give him time to decompress and it will save you from getting dragged down with him.
