Vampire couple shows what true love really means by drinking each other's blood each week

If you've ever believed that you're going to be single the rest of your life, this story should be an encouraging reminder that there's someone out there for everyone. If these two blood-suckers can find each other in the vast ocean of single people, you'll find your sole mate who appreciates long walks on the beach and free-flowing conversation.

Lia Benninghoff and Aro Draven are real life vampires that met where all vampires meet, on an online dating site. Both converts of the dark side, Lia immediately took a liking to the tall, blue-eyed vampire. But what really seeled the deal for Lia - and for most girls we can imagine - is that Aro drank blood.  

“When he explained that blood sharing would bring us closer together, I asked him to turn me," Benninghoff said, according to the Daily Star. "Aro cut himself with a razor and offered me his blood. Then I cut myself and he drank from me too. Suddenly I felt the energy rushing through me. It was a magical experience –- much more intimate than sex.” 

Ladies, when your guy cuts himself with a razor and offers you his blood, you know you've found the right guy. From there, it was love at first bite for the two vampires. The couple now shares intimate dates once a week sharing a drizzle of their blood, a glass of pigs blood and a delicious raw steak to supplement their diets. 

Of course, with all true love stories there's a plot twist. Lia's parents have yet to find out that her and Draven are practicing vampires, but what's the worst that could happen? Plus, Aro's already dead so the dad can't do much.
