A Girl’s Guide to Dating a Werewolf

Hi, everyone! (And thanks so much to Monica for inviting me to post! Yay, Monica!)

For fun, I thought I’d write up a guide to dating werewolves (cause, you know, that guide could come in handy one dark night). The heroine of my upcoming release, NEVER CRY WOLF, has particular expertise in this department. Since she got her happily-ever-after with a wolf shifter, I thought I’d share some tips that Sarah King compiled during her…ah…courtship with wolf alpha, Lucas Simone.

Tip #1: Werewolves growl. Get used to it. Sure, it may be annoying at first, but under the right circumstances, it can be sexy. Go with it.

Tip #2: Beware of a jealous wolf. Those guys can get all freakishly territorial over a little thing like an ex-lover appearing. Be patient. EXTREMELY patient. And expect growls.

Tip #3: Other women will want your man. It’s that whole animal attraction bit. It’ll be your turn to be jealous. Feel free to growl yourself.

Tip #4: Don’t expect a lot of candlelit dinners. Werewolves are more the long walk/runs-through-the-night type guys.

Tip #5: Even an alpha wolf has a weak spot—you just have to find it. But finding that spot is half the fun.

Tip #6: It really helps to love animals. If you hate dogs, stay away from wolves. Just sayin’.

Tip #7: Werewolves have an extremely strong sense of smell. Use that to your advantage. The right lotion or perfume can drive him insane. Insane.

Tip #8: Keep a pair of back-up jeans handy for your guy. He’s gonna get naked sooner or later. Either because he’s shifting…or because he’s with you.

Now it’s your turn! Got any tips for dating a werewolf that you’d like to share? One commenter will be picked at random to win a copy of NEVER CRY WOLF.

I'll keep these In mind. Especially the extra jeans tip.

Victoria said...

Love your list :).
I think I'd add that they tend to be very over protective so either set him straight right away or just give up your freedom.

legallycaz said...

Don't get too attached to your own clothes as werewolf's have a tendency to rip them off you! Then again that is half the fun. :)

Camille said...

Have a sturdy bed? LOL why yes, my mind does go there first more often than not XD

Yoga maybe a good activity to take up. Just to help with the sturdy bed and jean ripping (previous comments) and keep you nice and limber and flexible.

Hilleary Peterson said...

So somehow messed up my own name there

Take some gymnastic classes... flexibility will work wonders... uhhu... that's right... I went there :D

Jary said...

An advantage or maybe disadvantage of dating a werewolf is that you are your own personal tracking device. He can find you anywhere on smell alone.

So when you get abducted by the bad guys he will always be able to find you.

Cynthia Eden said...

You can never have too many pair of jeans handy, Jillian!

Thanks, Victoria! And so true--set that wolf straight.

Cynthia Eden said...

LOL, good point, legallycaz!

Camille, you are right! That would definitely be necessary.

Cynthia Eden said...

:) Ah, Hilleary, another good tip!

Yes, scottsgirl, you did--go, go!

Cynthia Eden said...

Jary, the wolf could certainly find you 24/7. Plus...and minus.

Thanks for the comments!!

Modokker said...

I guess i could add bya good brush your wolf will love getting his fur brushed to a shiny glossy sheen.

Do not get a cat or if you have one get rid of ot. They will never get along.

Leagh said...

I would have to say that if you have any clothes or panties that you particularly enjoy...don't wear them. He will just rip them off you *wink*

I already have the book so don't enter me :D

ilona said...

Nice list - good thing I like Canines (a lot) or I'd never get on with a Werewolf :D

Cynthia Eden said...

Hi, Lisa! Oh, I bet the wolf would appreciate that!

LOL, angel, very true!

Cynthia Eden said...

Leagh, you naughty woman...um, I suspect you are right.

ilona--glad you like the list!

Diane said...

All good tips and of course: be afraid, be very afraid of the Big Bad Wolf.
Cynthia's books are fun and entertaining.

Cynthia Eden said...
