I'd let him go. You can't make anyone stay with you if they do not wish to. Though, I'd act like a Zombie forever like Bella did. A lot of people say she was way to dramatic in the book, but I really don't think so. When you love someone it's impossible to let them go. Even if they leave you, they never completely leave. the memory is always with you. but, yeah, I'd let him go but become a zombie. XD
Whoa, I would definitely become like Bella. But without running off to Jacob. Hahahaha. ;D Just kidding. But yeah, I would be as devastated when he tells me he didn't want me. (Of course, when I read that, I knew that Edward didn't mean it). And I would be hoping against hope that he would eventually come back. [:
I would react like Bella but I'd never go off with Jacob - ew. I couldn't do that to Edward. I would become not the vampire I whished, but the zombie. I would be but a shell of myself. My heart forever gone, looking for my one true love

I'm very different than how Bella is written, so I would react very differently.
I wouldn't try to convince him to stay, because if someone is there just because you begged them, they aren't really with you, anyway. Also, it's demeaning to beg someone not to leave you. I would not give him the satisfaction of watching me grieve.
And I would be WAY pissed off if he took his pictures and gifts. The way I see it, when you give a gift, it's the recipient's to do what they want to with it. You don't take it away again. Taking the pictures away was just plain mean.
Also, it wasn't just Edward who abandoned Bella...it was the entire Cullen family, and that stinks. They made her think that she was part of their family, and then they just abandon her? The Cullen family saying she was one of the family and then, under pressure, retracting to theri core family and leaving her, is a terrible betrayal. If I was Bella, I don't know if I could ever really trust them again when they said "You're part of our family." I'd alawys be waiting for them to skip town and leave me behind.
Of course, I'd grieve, but I wouldn't allow myself to be a zombie. And when I started hearing his voice, I would have started up with yoga or other meditative-type activities to learn how to control my mind and how to block out what I don't want to think about.
I would assume that Edward would be back...it was clear that he loved her dearly, and that there was another reason. But when he came back, I would make sure he wouldn't find me groveling and whimpering still. I would have taken up a sport I could do well, something aggressive--fencing, perhaps? although the idea of Bella with a rapier is unsettling--and would have decided what career I wanted to be educated for, and started learning about it. Bella has so much empathy and compassion for others, plus she doesn't judge people, and I think she'd make an excellent doctor, perhaps a pediatrician.
I wouldn't have started up any kind of possibly romantic relationship with another guy, not if I still had strong feelings for Edward and not if I thought there was a chance he'd be coming back. That's using someone, and I think it sets you up for bad romantic karma.
And, when Edward did return, I'd put Edward through his paces before, and IF, we got back together. Men simply do not value what they don't have to work for, and I don't think anyone has a lot of respect for someone who just meekly accepts people treating her poorly.
As I said, I'm very different than how Bella is written, so I'd handle it differently.
KS appears to be very much different than Bella, as well. KS has directed her own career, and makes very good role choices. She is assertive, and doesn't suffer fools gladly. So I wonder how it is for her to play a character like Bella, who is so passive and nonassertive?
