You are vampire, female or male, and while you need food, you have found that you need love more. At this point in your 500 years you have only been in love once. You realize that through that loss you have been damaged so badly that you have never been able to look at the humans as any more than food.
Now, you want a lover. You want to whisk someone away. You have money and power, but you are really alone, even though you do have human servants who you eat only on occasion. None of these humans seem like the right fit.
You know some groups of vampires, but you are finding that vampires are not your type. You have started going to talk therapy and the psychologist thrills you.
