10 Reasons Why Girls Love Vampires

10. Vampires Dress Well
Perhaps it's the hundreds of years of practice, or that they were human in a time when men wore suits, but either way, you can't deny that vampires dress well. No longer do vampires dress in black capes. The vamps in Twilight are all about sophisticated fashion. Alice has a wardrobe to die for, and Edward dresses in elegant, yet modern outfits, looking like a GQ model.
9. Vampires Are Gentlemen
Following on from a previous article of mine entitled, "Twilight Zone: The "Good Bad Boy", vampires are dangerous gentlemen. They were human in the age of manners. They are "old-fashioned" and gentlemanly because that was what was proper when they were alive. Edward is nothing but polite and considerate, and this is a very attractive quality. I think that a few guys could take some etiquette lessons from vampires!
8. Vampires Are Mysterious
Girls love mysterious guys, and who could be more mysterious than a vampire pretending to be a normal everyday guy? Vampires have issues, a dark past, and demons. They can't let on too much about themselves, and have to hide what they're thinking and feeling. Thus, girls want to solve them like a puzzle.
7. Vampires Are Powerful
I'm talking superhuman strength, mountain lion wrestling strength. Girls love guys who are strong, and a vampire is 100 times stronger than a normal guy. Vampires can save your life (and end it), and that is thrilling. Vampires also have superhuman powers, such as Edward's mind-reading ability. Power = sexy.
6. Eternal Love = No Commitment Issues
A lot of vampires in today's stories are searching for their one true love, their soulmate. They seem to be deeper and more in touch with their feelings than real guys. They know that they're going to live forever, and want someone to share forever with. Swoon...
5. Eternal Youth = Eternal Hotness
Bella can't stand the thought of aging, because Edward will stay eternally young - and eternally hot. Imagine waking up to 17-year-old Edward every day for eternity. Girls love the idea of the hottest guy they've ever laid eyes on, staying that way forever.
4. We're DYING for Some Fantasy
In this tough economic time riddled with disappointment and problems, we crave an escape. Vampires awaken in us a fantasy of love, danger, and excitement. I think we all like to imagine that we're the lead character in our favorite vampire book / movie / TV series. Vampires take us to a place where we can forget our worries and live our fantasies.
3. Vampires Are Romantic
Vampires compose and play lullabies for the girls they love. They watch over them while they sleep. They are protective and caring. They are quiet and brooding. Conclusion: they know how to romance the ladies.
2. Vampires Are Drop DEAD Gorgeous
With superhuman power comes superhuman beauty. We have already established that vampires are hot, but let's just spell it out. I don't think that the word "dazzling" has ever been used as much as it is used to describe the angelic beauty of Edward Cullen. With his golden eyes and bronze hair, this "god" makes Bella (and us) feel weak at the knees. Stefan and Damon from The Vampire Diaries are also gorgeous. Vampires are supposed to be better looking than any celebrity. Beauty like that is not humanely possible because vampires aren't human. How can real guys compete with that?
1. Vampires Are the Ultimate Bad Boys
It's a fact - girls love bad boys. Girls love the mystery and excitement that bad boys exude. They don't care what people think, and they break the rules. It might be crazy, but danger is hot. Bad boys of the past were angels compared to the bloodsuckers in question. Vampires are the definition of danger, because their greatest desire is to kill you. The girls who love vampires have to choose to leave behind their normal lives, and even their souls, for the dark side, and they do it with a smile. Forget cigarettes, alcohol, and motor bikes. Vampires are the ultimate bad boys.
