Legends are often told, of creatures that stalk the night feeding on unexpected souls. Fact, legend, myth, or the imagination of great authors, or is it all of the above?
Looking forward to reading a hub on the subject, Welcome to HubPages!
I have to go, motherhood is calling. Good luck!
hope it the imagination of great authors - cause they scare me witless

Here you go, that should answer the question adequately. You can add the Wolfman and the Mummy to that answer, too.
I dont know, but for some time I was convinced my husband was a vampyre. i might b ecrazy tho..
Whoa, really? What'd he do, to make you think he was a vampire? Or do you mean emotionally a vampire...
its soooo lame.
I had just had our first child. (I was breast feeding, she would feed for 45 min...sleep for 15 then start all over.) We watched some vampire movie...I said.. "if you were a vampire, would you let me be one with you?"
he siad.. "I am one. And no, you dont want this life."
shortly after, our baby kept biting my neck every time she was hungry....
Hi friend empresswarrior
It is no fact; it is all superstitions and myth and sign of a weak personality.

This is a fabricated story which arose because some royal family members had a certain disease where their blood wouldn't clot properly (causing excessive bleeding) an so they would drink blood to compensate for te loss of blood through bleeding.
Vampires is just a myth, have no scientific or religious reality.
The idea of vampires is probably a myth based on reality. There is a hereditary blood disease called porphyria that accounts for many of the characteristics attributed to vampires. Symptoms includes cravings for blood, sensitivity to light, and a general "vampire-like" appearance.
Actually I think we've all met a few. I think the myth comes from the truth (as Hokey says above). We've all met people who somehow manage to suck at your energy and after being with them feel exhausted. Then we avoid them. We may not know why we avoid them but this might be it.
Blood suckers/flesh eaters are truth, immortal daywalker vampires are myth.
Yes I agree there are groups of people who drink and dine on blood and call themselves vampires, They believe they achieve some type of energy from ingesting blood ( I'm not sure how safe that is these day with all the blood borne pathogens out there). They often hunt together, practice religion together, and belong to specific groups or covens. Others Just like to dress like vampires,but these days that's called goth!
Do vampires worry about things like hepatitis or aids? Any socially responsible vampire should first take a blood sample and get it tested properly before tucking in.
There are two different types of "real vampires."
1. There are those that believe blood benefits their health. These groups normally have their own private blood banks filled with blood that has been donated to them by "victims" who have been tested repeatedly for any blood-born diseases.
2. There are those who drink blood as a sexual thing. Most of these type of "vampires" only share blood with their lovers, who are normally tested. They may also bathe in the blood of their lover.
absolutely real and quite private. I Have hubs on vampires and wish one would spare the time to let me interview them, maybe one day, who knows.
btw I've been to Anne Rice house, lets just say it's got an interesting vibe hmmmmmm
Some vampires are kind of sexy especially if their name is Brad Pitt.
There are some groups on orkut/facebook with title "aghori". You can search and read the threads posted by members, sick and shocking. Search for "Gary Stevenson aghori" will give interesting results on google.
Vampires don't exist except in the warped minds of a few who try to emulate them. The whole myth about vampires came from the imagination of writers from days gone by.
The stories were originally based on vampire bats which do exist and do suck blood from their victims, usually other animals not humans.
google..... Vlad Dracula.
He is where the myth originated. a very real and vicious man who impaled his victims on poles, some while they were still alive. he thrived on this stuff.
Vlad Dracula and Elizabeth Bathory were both inspirations of the famous Dracula. Both were real people. Both were sick and possibly insane.
I wonder why vampires can seem sexy to some? It's a very gross and shuddery, but fascinating for all that, subject.
I know in Christoph Reilly's vampire hub
people just went gaga how sexy it all was LMAO.
People are a funny bunch
Thanks, blondepoet. I visited that link. You know, in Bram Stoker's "Dracula", the original book, it made a real sensation because it was the first literature in the English language to really describe a female orgasm. And a female orgasm scared all the men involved, except for the vampire! Bram Stoker, himself, didn't know that's what he was describing...he was a Victorian gentleman, after all.
Psychology has coined certain people as being energy vamps, but these vampires are nothing like the legendary vampires we find in folklore, movies or comic books. A energy vamp is someone who feeds of another person's energy weakening their defenses against negativity or illness. I really don't feel silver crosses, stakes or fire is going to do anyone much good against the real vamps that walk amongst us, avoiding these types of people or spending limited time with them will bring you better results than a necklace of garlic.
No, not really UW. Just retired ex-grammar school teachers. Sticklers for grammatically correct prose. All are allergic to garlic, nature of the job. None are happy, rarely are they able to raise they're emotions to much above morose. A rather miserable social group. Love candlelight and dark and stuffy living conditions. Probably related to years and years of working in classrooms full of bored kids and one wall always being devoted to windows. Best avoided and certainly not sexy
The stories about Vampires started because people centuries ago did not understand the natural process of decomposition of a body. When a body starts to decay natural gases and fluids like blood rise up to the surface making it appear like the corpse has risen from its grave to suck the bood of the living.
For those who think real vampires might exist, there's always this: http://www.vampiretemple.com/
Vampires are mystical beings. The idea of a human going around biting another human on the their neck for blood started from the images of vampire bats sucking blood from farm animals in tropic regions of the world such as Mexico. I do not know why people believe such absurd nonsense.
Mathematicians have run the numbers. Vampires cannot be true. If they were, they would have wiped us out already, but I have it on good authority that werewolves exist. Which might explain the fact that people believe in vampires.
Werewolves also fall in the category of mystical beings. Again, this idea started from what people observed again, of all places in Mexico, of people born with a lot of hair on their faces because of a rare genetic defect. They look like the imagined werewolf creatures some Hollywood writer conjured up many years ago to make money in the movie industry.
Vampires that suck your blood do not exist. There are, however, those spiritual vampires - people who just stand right next to you and suck the energy from you.
I have come across the spiritual soul suckers.
The ones that suck blood do exist but they they are called "The Government".
BTW: Sunlight does kill them, it only makes makes them stronger!!
They never were myths or legends - they all come from Dracula by Bram Stoker - even the link back to Vlad Dracul is tenuous - and anyway the real man was a Prince who flip flopped between christianity and Islam depending on who was strongest - as he plotted to get the throne. Just a normal politician who got carried away with those big sticks when he got the upper hand for a while !
Vampires are just a myth,they have no scientific or religious reality.

Can they only exist in storybooks and legends? Are they out really our there, blending into our societies? There are many thoughts on how to become a vampire/vampyre, but no actual prove that it works. Or that vampyres exist. However, there has to be some grain of truth to all of the legends that...
