] Sorry, I'm with Ann on this. The great thing about Edward and Col. Brandon (and all the other heroes) is that their love was singular and steadfast. These men pick out whom they love, even if they can't or won't express their feelings openly - they have a singularity and clarity of heart which endures, whatever the circumstances.
But Edward first picks out Lucy to love, then decides he doesn't love her, then falls in love with Elinor. Sounds like Edmund's situation to me.
