but indeed they are everywhere in the world
maybe the ones from the U.K are just the most outgoing and willing to confess, and gothic culture is the strongest there so tahts also a factor (many goths want to be something they're not)

As for where vampires actually live, I live in Colorado. I know several in St.Paul, Minnesota. Some in Seattle, Washington...some everywhere. The prevalence of those willing to admit to it being in England comes from the acceptance of the Gothic lifestyle over there. But you can never tell who a vampire is just by looks. Keep that in mind.

Anyways... Did you know that Prince Vlad Tepes was actually killed by a female vampire? She wore hes clothing, everything. She's the one that started the rumors, disguised as a prince. Her name was Mara. Gee, I wonder who that was? *grins* Like I've said in a different thread, all vampires have at least one psychic ability. I'm gifted with telepathy, telekenesis, and the abilitly to make others forget specific things... along with a few other things. So you guys are the only ones that know about this.

The actual "myths" of vampires began with Prince Vlad Tepes, of Wallachia. Bram Stoker drew his inspiration for the character of "Count Dracula" from the Dragon Prince.
Wallachia is the name of the southern part of romainia.......and the legend of vlad tepes=dracul (dracula) ...FUCKING STUPID!!!!

The original Drakul, Vlad Tepes, had everything, an exciting history, Old World etiquette, strength and power. He even got excommunicated by the Pope. He was bloodthirsty and cruel by all our standards, but you can't deny his methods worked. And for a society where public executions were considered good clean fun for the whole family, people erected on stakes throughout the city weren't as bad as we like to think now. It's all about habit, and culture.
In modern times, however, the vampire culture has little to do with undead eastern ghouls, and everything to do with a youth culture, goth. If you notice, most of the more outward blooddrinking vampires tends to swear to something like the goth look, black clothes, dramatic make-up, dark and gloomy music. They like dark places, dark accessories, dark interests.
I've seen a documentary about british vampires, some went as far as backing away from garlic, and sleeping in coffins, others looked fairly normal, acted fairly normal, etc. But just about everyone featured swore to some variation of the goth look, in a varying degree. It's hard to say which leads which, if they like goth because they're vampires, or if they like vampires because they're goth. But the connection is usually in place, in some form.
Now, there are exceptions. There are perfectly normal everyday people who drink blood on the side, people like your father, the bus driver, or the lady next door with five kids.. The ones you'd never expect to have these interests. You can't categorize them and encompass them all.
England may have a lot of visible vampires, like they have a lot of visible goths, but I think it's more a cultural thing than a geographical one. America too is heavily represented, and the rest of Europe, and the western world, is following close behind.

I want to add something in my opinion about the topic. The vampire as we've come to know it, romanticized only very recently is still not the same vampire that had existed for a much much longer period before. Many of the traits aattributed to vampires today are from these stories by authors such as Byron and Stoker.
As to where most vampires live, I think the same stories above have a lot to do with this. It's prevalent in the UK (and to some extent eastern europe, romania and such) because that was the setting for Bram Stoker's Dracula, with Carfax Abbey and Whitby, etc. The fictional history is there. Likewise, there might be a prevalence in New Orleans that will grow due to Anne Rice ( and Poppy Z. Brite, etc ).
