I don’t know about you, but I’m just not quite sure how those T.V. and movie characters like that of The Vampire Diaries and the Twilight series could stand dating a vampire. There are so many rules, i.e. no sunlight, no biting, and the like that the undead have to follow. I’m sure it could be a bit much at times.

However, I must admit I have wondered from time to time, especially lately now that I have been inducted into the House of Darkness, what it would be like to date a vampire. And perhaps even know one in the biblical sense … if you catch my drift.

With that confession out of the way, here’s what I would do on a date with my dearly un-departed partner. First of all, I would plan a wonderful picnic at the local cemetery. O.K., O.K., that may sound cliché but I happen to think there’s something sexy about old graveyards.

Next, I would map out a route to the closest hospital just for fun. I’d do this so that my date wouldn’t pass out while spending time with me and also to see them in action. Why not, right?

The last thing I’d like to do is hit up another cemetery and write poetry for the duration of the evening. I would have blood-red or black rose petals scattered all around the oldest plot in the joint and a nice, soft black blanket. We would contemplate what it means to die and pose questions to each other about what it means to be human.

Doesn’t my date sound so romantic?
