I definitely would not, I mean really? when you think about it the vampire never dies, and all his or hers loved ones will die before the vampire, and he or she will forever roam the earth looking for people to have a midnight feast on.. so no i like my mortal life better. great question....

No. i will not trade so many tasty cuisine for only one type of meal. That is blood for breakfast,lunch, snack and dinner. It will be very monotonous. And no i will not trade my cheese burst pizza for vampirism
What is the most special thing I did today- I was MYSELF. Happy and in love and unapologetically myself.

Nope. Though they do have cool powers sometimes, becoming immortal and drinking blood isn't very appealing.

No. It would be no way that I would want to be a vampire. When it's over. It's over. As a vampire, you are cursed for life. You will be preying on others to survive. That is inhuman.

In my honest opinion, I don't think I would be comfortable with the fact that I had to live forever to see the people I care about die, due to the fact that vampires are immortal. I also would probably get bored of the lifestyle they live, so I'll opt out for this one.

I agree that the killing is a huge part of what would not make me want to be a vampire. If I could just have the strength without all the killing that would be pretty amazing.

It would be so tough being a vampire! I can't even imagine myself preying on other people just to survive. No, I don't find the idea appealing.

if i have given a chance to become vampire i would say yes because i always want to have a extraordinary life. im not saying that i want to kill people or other living beings its just for a good cause. of course, i will face many dangers cause by the way most people see something unhuman like, they dont always welcome them with open arms some even freaked out. well i want to be a good vampire

I don't think I would. Immortality would get old pretty quickly, I feel like. After all, I'm terrible at mourning losses now. I can't imagine mourning losses for eternity. While I think it would be amazing to have the opportunity to live long enough to see the future, I think the costs wouldn't be worth it.

Most definitely not!
Even if one didn't have to kill humans, scouting for food regularly seems exhausting. Not to mention that a vampire can't form a lasting attachment to anyone, since they'll die, while the vampire continues to exist forever. It seems lonely and tiring.

For me that is a hard thing to decide. While I love the thought of never growing old and have some of the cool super powers that you read about and see in movies and such, I don't know if I could handle the blood lust and the dangers around it. I am also unsure of being able to handle being apart from my family. At the same time though, the thought of never having to worry about being sick with the illnesses we have to deal with would be a good thought process. So for me, the answer to this question, simply put, would be I don't know. If it happened I would deal with the best way I know how, and if it didn't at least I would be able to watch my children grow up with them instead of from the shadows.

I was thinking about this when Eric is speaking to the magicians who want to study him, and he says that overall he had a positive experience as a vampire, but wouldn't recommend it. Slightly conflicting reply. In many ways it is pretty darn awesome - the crazy powers and strength. But the thing that would get to me would be the killing... so I would not want to be a vampire. What do you think?
I would not like to be a vampire. Why would I like to drain blood when I have lots of things to eat. :D

I would rather choose to die if given the chance to live a life worse than death. Heart as hard as stone, get ashed and blood sucking monsters they said. Well, I'll never want to be one. :)
