Silver Harris is the heroine and she’s having a pretty shitty New Year’s Eve.
She’s at a party where she knows absolutely no one and her date was just caught kissing another woman.
As in, the guys who do the right thing, treat people -- and specifically women -- well, and hold the door for ladies and stuff, they always get screwed over. The guys who don't call, don't text, don't even check to make sure you got home okay when they were too busy to make sure you got in a cab that night. And then, hopefully, if karma gets around to it, they get arrested at some point for fraud or hiring hookers or exposing themselves on the 6 train. Which is totes possible because hey, you're a senior accountant at Citi. And when Kate Upton doesn't call, instead they marry horrible women who grow up to be sedated housewives who are constantly trying to pitch their inability to work a stove as a reality show to E!
The guys who hook up with one girl and then her best friend the next night while girl number one is buying them both a drink because, damn, sluts! " The girls who do go for the guys that care and make efforts, are just the girls a guy want to marry. Guys keep them on the back burner and keep it casual in case, you know, Kate Upton decides to hang that night. I pay for my dinners unless a guy fights me to a point of embarrassment in front of the waitress. And I certainly would never take my boyfriend's credit card and go to town on it. You'd be surprised to know that the best relationships are usually the ones that are built on some kid of firm foundation of messed up "know you better than anyone" friendship.
Some of you, if not most, have hearts and know how to treat a lady I think. I can rarely get a guy to buy me a second beer, yet some chicks get rocks on the second date. That you figured that out for yourself after years of dating or whatever. But then there are the girls who are smart enough to not let their bats**t flag fly until the second that marriage license is signed.
Look at their Instagram -- any pictures with friends? If a chick has a laundry list of crazy that's laid out on websites like Baller Alert, Deadspin or The Dirty, maybe think twice about whether or not she's a good girl with good intentions. Don't Date The Girl Who Wants To Get Married On The Second Date Marriage is one of those elusive things to me. And sometimes, if not most times, I assume a guy puts a ring on a chick because he gets it. Because she's not the gold digger, cleat chaser, bad person who is using you for sperm so she can divorce you, marry the pool boy and get alimony and child support so she never has to work.
She leaves and runs into Logan Byrne, a stunningly handsome Irish vampire. Silver can’t stop thinking about the vampire, so she joins V-Date—a dating site specializing in vampires—to 1) try and find him again and 2) see if the miraculous kiss she shared is a common thing with vamps or just with her mystery guy.
had a premise I was excited about: a dating website for vampires. And I’m always trying to find romances that do something new with the paranormal romance genre.Silver even has a wicked stepmom: Ollie is referring to the fiasco of last Christmas when Dad and my stepmother, Sheila, decided we should do a secret Santa.A marvelous idea you might think – but somehow Sheila forgot to add my name to the little bag, so no one got me. I’m pretty sure she planned it.“Stop being such a killjoy.You’re spending way too much time with Krista.” A prickly silence drops over us like a cloak.My dislike for his current girlfriend is a sticky subject, to say the least.His name is Ronin and he wants Logan to track down specific human V-Date users and wipe their memories to protect vampire secrets.Of course, the first human Logan is tasked with giving the ol’ treatment to is Silver. I was really excited about the prospect of modern dating. She’s brash and open with her dating and sexual experience. But for the life of me, some of you guys pick the worst vaginas ever to lock it up with, and I can't understand why. These women are like their own personal cottage industry. I was always the girl the boys brought out because I just could hang. That your friends like, that your friends can talk to, respect and laugh with. But she is marrying HER best friend as well (not me, tragically ha). They are the couple who you know didn't just meet at a bar or go on a date. And they've cared for one another long before there was nakedness and intimacy. The one who was there before the drunk sex or the "she's so hot" or the awkward "should I text her? You have to know that the girl you are gonna be with, maybe even marry, was there before she really had a reason to BE there (relationship wise). Hell, I call my guy friends when I need a heart to heart or a pick me up after a dude turns into a total butthead. I've heard horror stories about women who hours after saying I do, are going off the paranoia deep end accusing their husband of hitting on bridesmaids, or getting angry over Maxim Magazine subscriptions, or spending their husband's money on things like bags shoes and clothes at rates that made the dudes from "Wolf of Wall Street" look frugal. Just don't be the guy who, once the real girl comes out, goes into denial that the level of normalcy she presented pre-ring was as real as that pair of fake boobs you bought her. Don't Date Chicks That Can't Hang I'm a dude's girl. I scream at my TV during playoffs, I talk about baseball and hockey, my guy friends talk about blow jobs and farts around me, I take shots and I dance awkwardly. She doesn't need to drink beer or be a bro, but you know that scene in "My Best Friend's Wedding" where Cameron Diaz's character is uncomfortable at the karaoke bar, and then all of a sudden she sings a song so badly but everyone cheers and she gets so into it and has the most fun ever? Date a girl who doesn't get mad if you want to go have a couple beers with the guys, date a girl who has herself together enough to not feel slighted if it's boys night out, and date a girl who is cool enough that hey, you COULD bring her to dude's night out! Date Your Friend My best friend Christine is getting married this September. If she and I ever got married, "Absolutely (Story of a Girl)" by Nine Days would be our wedding song. And when graduation rolled around, and New York City and finance came calling, I will never forget sitting down with her in Union Square when she said "I have to tell you something. It's Dave." Several years later, I don't think I remember Christine without Dave anymore. But they're still just the buds you hang out with as a group because they don't pull the lame couple shit that makes you never want to hang with couples.The woman who kisses her date on NYE is called a “Euro trash skank.” Silver’s boss is a “bitch.” Silver hates her best friend’s girlfriend because she’s uptight.Logan’s previous sexual partner is a woman named Colette and he swears to Silver that he never even liked her, and she’s seen as possessive and jealous.
