So, you just found out your boyfriend’s a werewolf. Relax and take a deep breath, everything’s going to be fine. All those old legends, superstitions, and myths had to come from somewhere, right? This means you’re not actually going crazy. I’m hoping as you read this post some of the fears will be soothed, because let’s face it, Alpha males don’t go away easily (especially if they have it in their mind you’re theirs).
Maybe I should start first with a congratulations, you survived. Ah, the initial shock. I’m guessing you didn’t scream and go running in the opposite direction since you’re reading this… so YAY! (Hold onto that strength!) You passed the first test, because more than likely he would have chased you down. Silly werewolf guys and their need to tackle prey running away. It’s not like they’re dogs and would rather run after bones or cars or something. It’s more an instinct far greater to stalk and consume.
I’m getting entirely too off track here.
Should I mention my qualifications? I’ve worked with animals of various kinds for thirty some years; either, finding them along the way on my own or through the Veterinary Clinic where we treated dogs, cats, horses, cows, and the local zoo. There’s nothing quite like having a panther stare you down to show how insignificant you are in the grand scheme of things. But again I’m veering slightly sideways since we’re talking werewolves. (were-panthers are an entirely different species though if you like purring and have a constant supply of raw meat…) I also write a lot of paranormal stories. This life experience translates into furry creatures that go bump in the night, often times more than once. ;}
Yes, lucky you! This guy of yours has to be pretty great if he’s showing off his furry side; normally they’re not allowed to do this for just anyone. I mean there’s a reason you were drawn to him to begin with- the muscles (and I’m sure they are pretty) or possibly the dark and brooding vibe. The whole bad-boy, Alpha Male mojo?
Once you make it past the physical prowess, something had you stare at the phone for days on end waiting to hear his deep, rumbling voice. It could have been that spark of awareness from when he touched your hand the first time and pulled you closer. His ability to shred clothing quickly! If any of these pertain, then it’ll only get better. Werewolves have a tendency to be very hands on and possessive. He might say ‘mine’ a lot now too. Who doesn’t want a cute pet name?
Don’t worry, you’ll get a few hours to yourself, once a month. During the full moon. (There are several myths and superstitions that are easy to look up and find that’ll explain in more detail so I won’t go into that now) They may be a bit more intense during this time because of the wolf needing out. Run and play, sounds fun. The whole supernatural community revers the moon though, but only the werewolf has to shift forms during this time. Isn’t that cool! So, remember he might be a tad bit of a Mr. Grumpypants, but it’s not like we don’t have our moments too during the month ladies. But don’t fear, there are a few apps out there to help track the moon. Just make sure Fluffy’s inside that night. Better be safe than sorry since that would be an awkward conversation the day after.
There have been rumors going around about vitamin combinations that help were-creatures not shift. I’m only mentioning this because werewolves might be a tad bit more irritable when avoiding the call of the moon. It would be needed though for those that have to work. It’s not like a hunky cop, firefighter, or strapping military dude can just call in with an excuse of needing to run naked under the moon.
Sorry, had to take a break for a moment and think about that.
Speaking of gainful employment, werewolves have a great work ethic. Once they sink their teeth into something, it doesn’t take long for them to devour it. In this economy too, hell yeah! Maybe it has to do with their assertive approach to life, or that they like to work with their strong hands.
Werewolves are generally pretty social creatures, and belong to a pack. Each has a hierarchy for things to run smoothly. Can you believe your luck of finding a guy that belongs to a gang to help in the day-to-day grind? From what I’ve heard, these packs, they’re a great support system and alibi.
And, if you ever get lost, the wolf has heightened sense of smell and hearing. This extra ability makes them great trackers. This could come in handy. Your guy will be able to find you anywhere.
All I’m saying is to be proud. This werewolf chose you. Give those furry ears a stroke and let him run on the moon. He’ll come home to you as soon as he’s chases the last critter away. Who wouldn’t want to be Team Jacob? Curling up with a hottie and staying warm as the calendar turns to winter. Sign me up for some of that!
