Monsters we love

Have you ever wanted a Jacob or Edward in your life? What is it that fascinates us? Is it the bad guy persona? Is it the thrill of the chase? Wanting what we know we can't have?

I think it's more than that. I think most women have a need for a Jacob, Edward, Lucian, Sirius, or even a Blade in their lives. Why?

Because they love with intensity.   How often do you get that?  They will kill or die for you. (Or that.)  Even better, they are nearly perfect. Who wouldn't love a nearly perfect man? Sure they have their faults. Some drink blood, others have anger management issues--but who do you know that doesn't have some type of issue? We love to love the 'good' monsters because it's enticing. It's above and beyond the usual. We're used to picking up socks and underwear. Doing laundry--been there done that a thousand times. However, when was that last time you got to be someones lifeline? See that's it right there! In books and movies we can indulge in the concept of being saviors. Only the love of a truly good woman will save these so-called monsters. And aren't we all dying to prove our worth?
Which monsters do you love?  What is it about them that trips your trigger?
