Advice for anyone wanting to turn into a vampire

You are ready to turn into a vampire if...

The amount of knowledge you possess about vampires and vampire lore is enough to grant you a PhD. Blood doesn't scare you and you prefer your steak red and dripping. You're cranky in the mornings and prefer to go out at night. Hanging out in Florida or the Caribbean holds no temptation for you. You are ready to leave your old life behind and embark on a whole different journey.

So what are the next steps?

The points mentioned above are good reasons for being interested in turning into a real vampire, but may not be sufficient for a vampire to turn you, nor are they actual reasons for you to become one.

But if this is a path that you are set on and you are clear on the consequences, read further. These tips hold basic advice for those humans who are serious about making the transition.

Find the right vampire to turn you

Heads up - most vampires may have no desire to help you. Vampires usually only turn humans with whom they have a deep connection or fall in love with. If you want a vampire to turn you, and you are not romantically involved with them, you may need to provide them with an incentive. It will help if you have created a friendship with a strong foundation first. We take this transition seriously and only want to turn humans who also take it seriously.

Be certain that this is what you want

This goes hand-in-hand with finding the right vampire to turn you. We want to make sure that this is what you really want, and you should too. Living for hundreds of years can be fun – I love it – but if you're predisposed to depression or anxiety, then this may not be the path for you. Living as a vampire will not solve those problems, nor will your basic personality change. Once you turn the only way out is death by painful means, so be absolutely certain this is the right path for you. Being a vampire isn’t always a picnic, but if it’s right for you it can be very rewarding.

Create an alias

After you are sure that you want to turn, and have found someone to turn you, the next step is to create an alias. The person you are now will no longer exist. Your senses will heighten, you will be more perceptive and even the way your brain functions will be altered. These changes will boost your ability in a variety of ways and you will find more doors opening than you ever imagined possible.

Creating an alias will prevent you from needing to answer questions about where these changes came from. One week you couldn't run a mile and the next you are entering a 5k... That won't make sense to anyone who knew you as a human.

And anyway, if you decide to turn into a vampire for a reason other than love, you probably aren't too happy with who you are. So take this opportunity and change that.

This will feel similar to being in the witness protection program. You will have a new identity and have a new history. If you could change who you are, who would you want to be?

Figure out what to tell your family and friends.

Perhaps your decision to change has nothing to do with your self-image. You may love yourself and your life, and want to become a vampire to help keep that going forever. But realistically, how long can you stay in your current life before people start to ask questions? Not only will your senses change, so will your aging process. In about 10 years when your friends are gaining weight in unattractive areas, and the wrinkles pop out, they will be more discerning towards your perfect body and skin. And then what will you tell them? Also, how will you explain your new interests and friends? A group of vampires under cover may seem like a snobbish elite to the unaware. Your family and friends may become resentful for your lack of time with them and jealous of your new group of friends. You also have to contend with a complete change in routine. You will be sleeping while they’re up and you’ll no longer want to go sit in the bleachers for little Joey’s game in the noon day sun. You will most likely change careers and your family and friends might see this entire overhaul of your life as something to be highly concerned about which will generate a lot of questions about just what it is that you are up to.

Again, humans rarely understand vampirism and that may unfortunately include your family and friends. Those who you trusted the most as a human may be the people you have the most to fear from as a vampire. Realize that fact and understand what it means. Then come up with a way to either tell those you think you can trust or fabricate a disappearance story. I recommend faking your death. It is the hardest choice to make, but will solidify for them that you are gone and will prevent your loved ones from searching for you.

Blood is an acquired taste.

It's the same as red wine. The first time you try it, it may not be very appealing. But you continue to drink it because blood is the only thing that satisfies hunger and gives you strength. After a while you start to appreciate the flavor and begin to crave it. Not all blood is created equal either, you will find that you prefer certain ‘vintages’ just like with wine over others. Some vampires don’t care…blood is blood to them, but others are more discerning, so experiment and keep at it; blood is our mainstay, but it may take some time to find exactly what you like.

Keep as few human friends as possible

We already touched upon this topic but I must stress it again – keep few human friends. You can keep the people you knew as a human, or make new friends after you turn. Just make sure you can trust them 100% with your secret.

This is one of the most important and tricky rules to remember. We live day-in and day-out with humans. We depend on humans for blood. We also appreciate their friendship and even admire their ability to move forward on their limited strengths. Sometimes, we need human friends who know about us to help us keep our secret. The trick is in finding the right people. Not everyone who acts friendly is a friend.

Be prepared for an adventure-filled life

Being a vampire has certain limitations, but it can also be a ton of fun. Your extra strengths and abilities can make you successful in almost every endeavour you participate in and before you know it the money and acquaintances will come streaming in. You can build wealth and gain prestige and notoriety and attempt things you may never have even considered as a human. One thing you will definitely have more of is time. Beef up your education and learn all you every wanted to. Travel the world to see things most people only ever see on TV This is going to be especially fun if you turned to share your life with one of us. Let us show you the wonders of the world. Learn new languages, go skydiving or scuba dive with sharks, visit the African safari. You no longer need to be scared of nature or wildlife – you will have become the worlds strongest predator. Have fun with it and your life as a vampire can be more fulfilling than you ever dreamed. Explore, experiment, experience and get excited. There’s a big world out there with lots to see and do and as a vampire, you can do it all!
