Let’s Talk About Love – “There’s lots of good fish in the sea…maybe…but the vast masses seem to be mackerel or herring, and if you’re not mackerel or herring yourself, you are likely to find very few good fish in the sea.”― D.H.Lawrence, Lady Chatterley’s Lover
I often wonder why some women, including myself, love the men in paranormal stories. As a multi-genre writer, I leave a wide girth of room for paranormal fantasy as one of my chosen genres to write. Maybe it’s because when supernatural men commit – they commit. There’s no such thing as infidelity, and his mate’s every comfort, need and her protection becomes his duty. How many human men consciously take on those responsibilities till death do them part? How many human men let no man or woman put asunder? Not many in this day and time. Paranormal/fantasy stories allow us women to live vicariously through words, as we crave the very love we read about. But I must admit, I’ve found one or two men who know how to give extraordinary deep-rooted love and commitment. I’m also certain there’s one or two more out there that I have yet to run across. And let’s not forget the fantastic, knee shaking, mind-blowing sex that ends in multiple orgasms – repeatedly – with no need for rest. Okay, I agree. The sex really isn’t fair to compare to human men. Physically, that kind of sex can only be read about. What a shame! The reason I read and write paranormal/fantasy romance is because of the monogamous bond the men in these stories form. Nothing prevents the heroes from showing impassioned love to their heroines for centuries to come. *Sigh!* Most real men find that hard to do for fifty or sixty years of marriage. This isn’t male bashing! I LOVE MEN! Love my husband. And don’t get me wrong, these traits could also belong to women. Whatever road to love you chose to travel, take your time and enjoy the experiences along the way. Remember, Love has no limits – race, creed, religion – nothing should keep you from finding your fictional supernatural mate inside a real human man. Cross streets, rivers, seas, boundaries, countries, etc. to find your happily ever after – your good fish in the sea. Until then unfortunately, mackerel and herring it is!
Let’s “chatt” again soon.
