If you are thinking in a classical sense, then no you cannot be born a vampire.
Vampires are neither living or dead and can only reproduce by biting someone.
In real life, no too.
Our teeth are not configured or designed to puncture for the purpose of drinking blood.
Also diseases like HIV and Hepatitis B and c and other blood born pathogens can make this practice very deadly to the person ingesting it.
I`ve also heard that some drink animal blood, which suprisingly can be ordered online for this purpose from some vampirism sites.
Although blood is a great source of protien, this can cause constipation, and stomach problems if too much in ingested. Not to mention that animal

Back in medieval times, vampires were feared and dreded.
If you were suspected of being a vampire, you`d get a stake through the heart to pin you down, then your head would be cut off and burned.
Then Hollywood and other types of media made it cool to be a vampire and then kids read Twilight and suddenly they are trying to desperately find
every possible indication that may point to them being a vampire.
Maybe as with the many problems of adolescence or being a young adult, the search and desire to be a vampire is merely a search for one`s self. A
meaning, identity, purpose, or a place in society.
Maybe a fad?
Back in my days, it was the goth kids. Then came the emo crowd, now maybe the vampires are the new fad?
It it bad? I dont know. If it`s somthing that is obsessive, then yes.
But I do know this.
Every single goth kid I knew back in school, whiped off their eyeliner, bought more colorful clothes and let their hair turn back to it normal color
once they found their place in life. And according to some of them, they realized how silly it was.
Even I as a former member of the pot smoking, devil worshipping, metal head crowd, retired when I found that things like that had to take a back seat
to bills, children and other priorities. Although im still a metal head
