Sorry girls, but this type of vampire is way less romantic than the ones read about in fiction novels...
An emotional vampire, as Dr. Judith Orloff of the Huffington Post puts it, is "someone in you're life who's draining, exhausting and emotionally selfish." And they apparently come in a variety of types: "Narcissist," "Victim"; "Controller"; "Talker" and "Drama Queen." The one thing that all of them have in common is that they zap your resources and leave you feeling worse than they found you.
Here are a few signs of whether or not you're dealing with the emotionally undead:
Your eyelids are heavy -- you're ready for a nap
Your mood takes a nosedive
You want to binge on carbs or comfort foods
You feel anxious, depressed or negative
You feel put down
If any of these signs describe your current state, beware as you might be facing with an emotional vampire in your social circle. In order to improve on your relationships and increase your energy level, try to identify between people who give you energy and those that drain you. Once you do this, try spending more time with the loving, nurturing people, and learn to set limits with those who drain you.
