I've been researching about them ever since I was a little girl. I do believe that they are real. Other people don't believe in them, because there is no evidence that they are real. If you do research on them for a very long time, you will be convinced that they are real. The thing is, there were REAL vampires back then. Vampires don't drink blood. They feed on energy. A lot of them are psychic vampires.
There is a vampire subculture which is really all about stereotypes. People " pretend " to be vampires, with capped teeth, they drink blood, they dress so they can look sexually attractive, but they do not have the real aspects of a vampire.
They did really exist back then though, but it's your choice to believe in them or not. Also, people are going to have all kinds of beliefs. You just have to respect that ;)
The, " werewolf, " is not real. You can die from a whole transformation if they were real and if you were one.
If you want to become a vampire, you have to die, and it's a long-story to tell why.
I believe there are people who actually drink human blood & call themselves "vampires." I believe there was a man referred to as "Vlad the Impaler" who tortured people & was the inspiration for "Dracula... and... that's about all I believe about "vampires."
