Once a werewolf has found love, how do you take the love, and make the werewolf romance last when there are so many things in the human world conspiring to keep you apart? The answer depends alot upon whether or not your romance is with a human, vampire, or another werewolf.
Werewolf – werewolf romance is probably the easiest scenario. Both people in the relationship know the deepest secret the other carries, so deception and restraint do not play a big role in the relationship. Or, to be more clear, should not play a big role in the relationship. If you are finding you are having problems in a romance with another werewolf, my first question is, are you still hiding a part of yourself from your werewolf partner? Remember, although as a werewolf you have trained yourself to hide and deceive others for personal safety, you do not have to do that with another werewolf. Identify if you are still withholding something from your partner or the relationship . If you are, acknowledge it, and open yourself up. If you don’t, it could eventually pose trouble in your romance.
Vampire – werewolf romance can be a little trickier. One of the trickiest parts is that traditionally, werewolves and vampires have been longtime enemies. Of course, while this is not unanimously the case – and as we have discussed before, vampires and werewolves can certainly get along in some cases – it can be a bit trickier than either party can expect. You might start out your romance completely oblivious to the longtime animosities between vampires and werewolves, thinking that you’re the exception. But, breaking the barriers that have been built up by generations of others before you, can be more difficult that you think. You may find yourself falling back on some of the old-time animosities as fuel during disagreements. You might find yourself harboring resentments against your partner because of things that other werewolves say about vampires. Do not let others influence your relationship. Your relationship does not include a third party. While your friends may think themselves perfectly justified in bad-mouthing vampires around you, you must learn to keep them out of your relationship. Your romance does not include their opinions about vampires.
Human – werewolf romance is the most difficult of the three scenarios. The romance is likely to start OK, but distrust can quickly develop. As a werewolf, a human – werewolf romance means you give up alot of security by sharing your secret (the fact that you are a werewolf) with a human. With werewolf romances, it is unlikely your secret will be shared. With vampire romances, it too is unlikely too be shared as vampires have a secret to keep as much as you. But with humans…ah, well, they could rat you out to other humans in a second.
If the human you trust shares your secret, you are in deep trouble. The problem is, if you don’t share your secret, this can become a wall between the two of you. Your romance will not have the chance to develop further as you must keep half of yourself secret from your human partner. The key behind a human – werewolf romance is first identifying if this is the love that will last and not just a quick romance. Once you are certain that this is a love that will last, you must learn trust. Trust in yourself, and trust in your human. At some point, you will just have to go with your instincts, that this is a love that will last a lifetime, and trust the fact that you chose someone that loves you enough back to keep your secret, even if you have a disagreement or fight.
