Vampires vs Werewolves – Let the battle commence!

The Pros and Cons of Dating a Vampire

We’re all in love with Edward, played by the gorge RPatz, and we’re more than a little envious of Elena, caught between sweet-and-sincere Stefan and the darkly dangerous Damon, but would you really, really want to date a vampire? Read on for ten reasons why it’s probably not such a good idea.

He’s achingly cool and every girl in school is crushing on him, but be honest – do you really want your boyf to have better skin and hair than you?

He’s the hottest boy in school now…and he always will be, even after you’ve left to get a job or go to college.

Imagine if the romance lasts: in 30 years time you’ll have grey hair and wrinkles – and he won’t.

Romantic meals out are no fun when you’re the only one that’s eating.

You could never dance all night and then watch the sun come up together.

Imagine locking lips with someone whose mouth was last used for drinking rabbit blood.

Could you really cope with 300 years of exes to be jealous of?

When you’re forever battling evil forces together, you can’t pretend to be scared at the pictures to get him to put his arm round you.

It’s hard to buy birthday presents for someone who doesn’t eat, drink or shower and who has had centuries to buy everything else he wants.

He’ll have to keep moving to new cities so that people don’t get suspicious of him never ageing, and long distance relationships suck!

If none of that has convinced you, and you still want to go ahead, then there is one bright side. You will never ever have to meet his parents.

The Pros and Cons of Dating a Werewolf

From sorcerers and demons to vampires and werewolves, we’re loving our supernatural hotties. But just how good a boyf would a werewolf really make?

Well, for starters his canine nature would make him forever loyal, so you can be reassured that he’ll never leave you broken-hearted. But what if you wanted to move on? He wouldn’t let go easily and you could have stalker issues. You might even find it difficult to meet other boys. After all, the cutie in your maths class is hardly going to approach you when you have such an intimidating body guard.

He’d totally get that you feel off once a month because he does too, but if there happens to be a full moon on the night of your best friend’s birthday, you’d have to explain why he couldn’t accompany you to her party.

You’d look super-cool walking down the high street with a wolf at your side – but you’d have to carry dog pooh bags round in your handbag, and no girl should have to do that for her boyfriend.

Werewolves age slowly, so he’s always going to look hot – and better still he really wouldn’t mind if you forgot to shave your legs or under your arms.

He will always have a dog-like mentality, which means his loyalty will be to his pack leader first, so if you end up in hospital with a burst appendix, and his dad is home with a cold – guess who is going to get all the sympathy presents?

My sister, Theresa, will never forgive me for saying this, but I think, despite the bad points, werewolves still win. What do you think?

    I would be useless at writing something like this – how did you get all the “teen speak”? Do you have access to teens who will tell you want the language means? Very clever writing to get into the head of a teen and produce something like this. You must have had to do a lot of research of teen magazines in order to get the tone just right. Fun and fascinating.

      You wouldn’t believe how many teen magazines I read to research for this. My husband thought it was hilarious – especially as all the magazines have “free” gifts so once a week I ended up surrounded by glittery nail polish, hair bands, notepads, pencil cases…..
