Romance Novel Heroes: The Worst Part About Sleeping with a Were?

In last week’s True Blood episode, viewers were treated to shots of Alcide’s bare backside as he was getting frisky. Which is all well and good, but let’s ask, for real:

What would be the worst part about dating a were? The hairs in the sink? The eating raw meat thing? That their monthly cycle is worse than yours?

Why would you have second thoughts about being with a were?

Same reason I can't read romances where they're the heroes: I have been exposed to way too many of the darker, more poorly socialized corners of the Internet. I feel like I'd think "fursecution" or "fursona" midway through sex and either throw up or start giggling.

Which is not to say they're not good, but just that the Internet ruins everything, or something. ;)

Possessive nature of that animal instinct. It's great in books, because we're seeing it for just a bit. But, really, would you want that alpha aggression and "mine" to flare up when a movie concessions stand cashier gives you free popcorn?

Chelsea, that would actually make for a great scene in a romance.

Worst thing about sleeping with were comes with after-sex shower. More then once I read in book heroine wondering did she took his shampoo or flea dip. ;))))

I agree with ChelseaMueller. The possesive streak is great in short run, but permanently? He'd be missing a heavily valued missing limb within a week. Honestly, though, I'm already a growly person without any shifting techniques. Living with someone like that? We'd either combust or tear the house down on a daily basis. Too much stress.

Best to keep that shifter on a friend basis but nothing more. Not if you like pretty set arounds the house because he snits, which causes you to have one, and then it goes BOOM with a pretty Harmony unicorn flying by his head when he starts talking Fred Flintsone.

When your weretiger boyfriend leaves dead wererats on your front mat. It's nice to know he's thinking of you but it's hard to find a piece of newspaper big enough to wrap them in to throw them in the trash. And if you don't find them in time it upsets the mailman.

I have to agree! I love Werewolf books, but I know I wouldn't be able to actually handle living with one. The only exception I would make is Garreth from Kresley Coles Immortals After Dark series. Mostly because I have a major crush, and decided I could learn to live with it in this one case. :)
