Well, f*ck.
Haven't heard that term in over twenty years.
...
TFD comes to mind though... Lotta folks there who need attention.
Helping them leaves you feeling hollow. Because they're right back the next day complaining about the same thing you thought you helped them with previously.

They're not vampires. Sponge is a better moniker.

Do you talk at people thereby forcing them to respond, even when you have nothing to say and they have nothing to say back to you?

Stop doing that.

Energy vampires- you mean kids, right?
We just don't believe in them, never did.

Do you call recurring Zoom meetings to circle back and keep everyone in the loop?

Do you live in Staten Island with Lazlo, Nadja and Nandor the Relentless?

The reason is because you have two different genetically determined energetic frequencies. You literally vibrate differently

What fresh bullshiat is this?

It's not my fault I can't stay awake or pay attention to stuff other people feel is important. I am special and unique it's everyone else who is dull.

I thought this would be an interesting article on how you can realize you exhaust other people, not a list of items from the What We Do in the Shadows universe.

Same shiat that makes people believe in reiki. I've been around who talk about it, but I just don't have will to look into it's genesis.

Basically, "we're all energy, maaaannn"  runs in the same groups as horoscopes and healing crystals.

Are the energy vampires the ones that get all sparkly in sunlight, refuse to drink human blood, and constantly are at odds with shirtless werewolves? Or was that a different type? I forget...

"Founder of the Institute of Genetic Energetics"

Geez, just lead with that so we all know we're better off skipping to the  next totally-not-fake Dear Prudence post.

Now - now! We haven't learned whether "Baby Colin" is an energy vampire or some other manifestation.

That's funny.  I never heard that word until recently. But for me, it's the same thing as "personality disorders."  So I"m all down on that stuff.

I"m not looking at farking YourTango.  I have real psychology texts.

ModernPrimitive01: I never realized I could blame other people for me being tired.YOU'RE ALL ENERGY VAMPIRES


Oh, they exist.  My buddy has a neighbor that is one.  When my buddy has bonfires in his backyard, they guy will eventually wander over, and join the party.  Problem is, he only has 5 or 7 stories that he tells and retells from before he retired.  He will ask you a question, and right in the middle of you answering, he will cut you off and start talking.  If you're talking to someone, he will butt in and start yammering about something else.  He worked at the meat counter for a grocery store chain and lamented one night that a couple regulars at the fire would frequently talk construction and concrete, and out loud wished there were other meat-cutters at the party.  The jokes he tells are worse than groan-worthy.  I've even seen his own wife cut him off, calling him sharply and angrily by his first name because she sees what is going on.  It's bad enough that if he's there, certain people won't show up, or will leave.
