Nothing wrong with being a straight guy and enjoying Twilight in books and movies, but the guys should love Rosalie and Victoria as being some of the sexiest femme vamps on screen in a long time.

true i didn't get any stick about it until the films were made, once again its just people generalising because of the way its portrayed in the media e.g. screaming teenage girls :lol:

Not just teenage girls but also college girls as well as they swoon over Robert and Jacob, but the men are ashamed to admit about Rosalie and Victoria.

Similar thing happened with Titanic about the whole screaming teen and college girls, i mean that wasn't the reason why Titanic was successful.

You're right there is NOTHING wrong with being a Twilight guy!!

In my opinion most of the cast is pretty darn good looking. (Even the girls. I wish I was as beautiful as they are! I'm straight but just saying.) I think Rob & Taylor are both good looking in their own ways. So are Kellen, Jackson, and Peter. I'm just glad I'm not one of those types that is a screamer. (At least I don't think I would be anyway. I've never been that way.)

I get made fun of for the xtreme Twilight addiction, almost everyone I know likes or loves Twilight but when I random break out in a fangirl scream for no apparent reason I get a lot of strange looks.
Although I try to be subtle about my addiction to Twilight, there are times when I 'slip' up too. I know how you feel sometimes I get strange looks too... :lol:

You said it brother. I actually had a guy friend who comes with me to Twilight and New Moon movies when it was shown on our local theater. Although he doesn't read the books but he loves the movies.

Well some say that male Twi fans are mostly gay or bisexual but straight guys can enjoy this for the reasons as i mentioned, call it a guilty pleasure and those guys can love Rosie and Victoria or Alice whichever they prefer including me.

I am a big vampire fan since i was a kid back in 1987 as a 5 year old who watched The Lost Boys on the big screen and later watched Monster Squad with Dracula movies on TV.

ah the lost boys!!! good times! yeah i dont mean that its just teenage girls that like it but that is the stereotype that the non Twilight fans believe to be true and hold over our heads :lol: and well as for the fan gilr screaming my friend and i watched the stuff that was leaked from comic-con with everyone screaming over it and we vowed NEVER to be those girls of course at that point we hadnt gotten anywhere near any of the cast, fast forward to November last year when we went to the u.k. fan party and were inches from Rob, Taylor, Kristen and Chris Weitz and that went out of the window :lol: then a couple of weeks ago met Robat the Remember me prem i got mildly fangirl ish (cringe :oops: ) thankfully not when i spoke to him, i think its just a thing that you never expect to happen and then ur so happy it has :lol:
p.s. harrytuttle officially the first twilight guy fan i have encountered

I wouldn't say I'm made fun of. The rest of my friends are a bit like :How can you like it? It's for screaming teen girls..." So you are a bit more of an outsider being a Twi Guy, but it's nice to see we are around here. 8-) But I never act obsessive or whatever, being a guy I can't muster up a fan scream anyway. :P
