15 Signs Your Hot New Boyfriend Might Be An Actual Supernatural Vampire

Of course your boyfriend is a babe - he's your boyfriend and you only date the sexiest dudes on the meat market. The fact that he might just be a vampire makes him even more tantalizing, but how do you know if he's actually a vampire or just a pale-skinned hunk? Real-life vampires have a series of qualities that they share with no other living thing, so if your boyfriend has multiple vampire traits then you’re likely dating a member of the undead and should just get used to it. The first step in figuring out whether or not your boyfriend is a vampire is to learn what a vampire looks like, and then see if your beau shares any of the qualities that have been laid out on this list of signs that you're dating a vampire. From there it’s up to you to decide how you want your relationship to fold out.

Maybe you’ve been suspecting that your boyfriend is a vampire for a while now: Does he stay out all night and come home with the smell of blood on his breath? Does he consistently curse God and all that is holy? How much blood does he drink? If you’re wondering how to spot a vampire, then you’ve come to the right place. This run down of how to know if you’ve entered a union with a super sexy member of the undead will help you determine whether or not you’re dating a guy who just happens to look great in leather, or if your boyfriend is the real, bloodsucking deal.

    His Skin Tone Changes Depending On What He Eats

    One of the common misconceptions about vampires is that they have consistently pale skin, but that's not the full story. Depending upon how much blood, or raw meat, they ingest on a given day, their skin will take on a rosy hue that indicates their level of satisfaction with their meal. So, if your boyfriend is looking exceedingly pale, maybe you should postpone your hawt make-out sesh until after he's had something to eat... or it could be you on his menu.

    Does He Only Come Around At Night?

    Vampires have an inverted circadian rhythm, meaning that the 24-hour cycle dominating their physiological process is backwards from that of a regular human. If your boyfriend is waking up at 8 pm and going to bed when the sun rises, then you're either dealing with a vampire or a total night owl. However, this isn't a surefire way of knowing whether or not your boyfriend is a creature of the night, so make sure he checks off a couple of the other boxes on this list before staking him through the heart.

    How Does He Look In Leather?

    This photo examination of cinematic blood suckers proves that members of the undead look exponentially better in a full leather outfit than members of the general public do. If your boyfriend not only pulls off looking like a Dave Navarro-impersonator, but actively makes you think that more people should wear leather pants (even though they so totally shouldn't) then your boyfriend is probably a vampire.

    He Refuses To Appear In Photos With You

    If you're tired of getting your feelings hurt because your boyfriend refuses to appear in photos with you, then you need to double check to see if he's also transforming into a bat and drinking blood, because he might just be a vampire. If that's the case, then get over yourself because he physically can't appear in photos with you. That's just how life is for a vampire. However, if he's not a vampire and he's just not taking pictures with you then that probably means he doesn't want people to know you're dating and you need to get out of that relationship ASAP.
