The Will and the Want

     There are dreams that tempt our resolve. That tempt the steps we take to overcome the weak impulses that stir within us. Impulses that drive us to thirst, to feel. 
     My vampire ex thinks she understands, but I know different. 
     This other woman has no immortal worries. She carries on, unaware. After her guests left her company, the other night, she remained - alone with her mortal guilts.

The Situation

     Remember that vampire ex I mentioned before? She's causing trouble. 
     When vampires say forever they mean it. Except for me.
     Except when it comes to her. She's willing to convince me.
     But I have someone else in mind. Someone with a body temperature and throbbing veins.

Catch 22

     The problem with being a vampire is that it can get hard to distinguish between a genuine attraction to someone and the blood lust inside of you that is tempted by human blood.
     Is it genuine? Or is it dinner calling?

A True Story

     A long time ago I was in love. Not with a vampire. But a human. She was beautiful and smart, and more full of "life" than any vampire I had ever met. You see she knew who I really was, who I am. 
     We lived together and we survived a war together. We married.    
     Faithful to one another through it all. 
     Until one day. It all collapsed. 
     Life changes in moments or seconds without warning.                  Vampire or human, we can all feel the same pain can't we?

To Turn or Not to Turn

Here's the scenario:

     You've fallen hard. You've decided to be exclusive with your one true vampire. While other couples are dealing with long-distance or familial tension you have a bigger no-going-back dilemma. Should you become a vampire? Should you declare your "undying" devotion by turning?
     Don't be too hasty. This needs some serious consideration.
     But I'm getting ahead of myself. The woman I'm referring to doesn't even know who I really am...

Dealing with that Vampire Ex

     Having a vampire for an ex can be problematic. Remember, my post about vampires and harping? It's comes so natural to us. Well, every vampire is someone's ex so all that dwelling comes full circle. Let's say you moved on to someone else, finally, after decades (no exaggeration) of sulking. Your new relationship is in for some difficult circumstances. It can be a lot for anyone to handle, right? 
     But maybe especially for a human....

The Dilemma of Dating a Vampire

     Understand that if it doesn't work out you're in for more than just dropped phone calls, bitter stares, or awkward run-ins. Vampires harp. 
     Vampires do not know how to move on. 
     We've had a long time to learn how to properly sulk. And sulk we will. If you break that vampire "heart" be prepared to witness mood swings, occasional stalking, and minor threats to new love interests. 
     An ex-boyfriend vampire might turn into one huge killjoy.
