With Buffy and now Twilight, vampires are more popular than they have ever been. So popular that it can be exceedingly hard to get one to answer an invitation to dinner or just a quiet night out. So what’s a vampire loving guy or girl got to do to get one to answer his/her next text? Start with the old stand by – Blood. Vampires love blood. It’s their raison d’etre. As Dracula so neatly pointed out, “the blood is the life.” Which sounds a bit like a contradiction since vampires are, technically, not alive, but that’s neither here nor there. Blood will draw a vampire quicker than honey draws a fly. (Vampires also appreciate a little class. So you might want to break out the good crystal. But do a temperature check before serving. Ideal temp is, of course, 98.6 degrees F.) Maybe flash some Skin. Especially in the neck area. A bit of jewelry to draw attention to your jugular wouldn’t go unappreciated either. Just keep away from the religious symbols, especially religious symbols that bring with them great personal faith. Embrace the Darkness. Most vampires, though not all, tend to avoid light, or at least very bright light. If you go by most television vampires who also happen to be detectives, however, they seem to have an affinity for living in cities like Los Angeles, where the sun shines pretty much all the time. Go figure. But most vampires like it dark. So arrange that get-together at night in a smoky, murky bar or in the shadows, preferably near a cemetery. Utilize a vampire’s favorite sense – Smell. Vampires have a very heightened sense of smell, which is needed to sniff out all that fresh blood. It helps a lot if your blood smells especially good. Bella in the Twilight series smells very attractive to vampires....
