The characters in Eclipse manipulate each other emotionally to get what they want. While some manipulate openly, others hide their true intentions. Jacob openly guilt-trips Bella into kissing him, which leads her to realize her love for him. Edward slyly manipulates Bella into taking his side against Jacob by appearing to be tolerant toward him. Victoria manipulates Reilly into helping her build a vampire army by pretending she loves him. In short, manipulation can arise from good or bad intentions, but it in Eclipse it's always a selfish act.
