* So heartbreakers... The Urban Dictionary ( defines a heartbreaker as: 1. one who screws you over, is mean to you, and gave you hope but ripped it away either quickly or slowly over a long period of heartbreaking time - usually the one you are most in love with and think you need... 2. A person who can break hearts easily. Because they are so beautiful everyone wants them, but not everyone can have them.; An affectionate way to say somebody is adorable or good looking.; Somebody who breaks or hurts peoples hearts/emotions - "Aww aren't you just the heartbreaker" followed by the pinching of cheeks. The dictionary had more but IMO I felt the first two summed up my thoughts on the matter. Heartbreakers don't necessarily have to be a boy/girlfriend or potential boy/girlfriend they could be anyone you thought you could count on and then found out your couldn't. I've known all and friends who promised things then flaked out; the boyfriend whom I was head over heels for and broke my heart; the cute kids who are termed heartbreakers. So the questions ~ Do you think heartbreakers are just bad boys/girls who can turn into the best heroes/heroines around? Or can they be anybody?

  2. I think many heartbreakers don't know that they are one. My favorite Heartbreaker is the one that your heart can’t live without. One of my best is Lucas from D B Reynolds book “LUCAS” (Vampire in America series). Strong mind, well put together and tender when he wants to be. And loves horses.
