For as long as I can remember myself, I've been having dreams about vampires. In my earlier years, they've been horrible, mindless creatures that I desperately ran from--not in fear of death, but in fear of being turned into a vampire. However the older I got, the calmer the dreams became. They turned even pleasant. Now they are sensual, beautiful dreams! I'm charmed by incredibly attractive male vampires, and if in the beginning of the dream I am reluctant to fall into the temptation, in the end I always find myself in bed with the once horrible creature. I am head over heals in love with him. Please help! I've been trying to get this figured out for years, and I just don't get it. What does this mean?

You seemed to have captured the paradox of the vampires in your dreams. They represent death, ferocity, and aggression. At the same time, they represent lust, nobility, and seduction. This complex dream figure is a reflection of your extreme and diverse feelings involving a situation or relationship. Perhaps the dream may be a metaphor for a romantic obsession you are experiencing that has little or no emotional foundation. This relationship may also prove to be ultimately harmful to your autonomy and independence.
The shift that your dreams has taken in how your perceive the vampire may have to do with your attraction to the "bad boy" image. These are the guys that you know that you should stay away from, but nevertheless you are drawn to them.
