Yes, I too can love. You yourselves can tell it from the past. Is it not so?

– Bram Stoker

Dracula, Chapter 3. Dracula’s response to one of the three vampire women, when she says to him, "You yourself never loved. You never love!" Did the Count have a tragic love affair in the past? Or did he at one time love each of his three Brides, but now that they are evil vampires, that love is no more?
