HAVE YOU EVER FELT COMPLETELY DRAINED, DEPLETED AND EXHAUSTED AROUND A PARTICULAR PERSON, FOR NO APPARENT REASON?
An energy vampire is a person who feeds off your emotional, or psychic, energy. People who display energy vampire traits generally lack empathy, sensitivity, and emotional maturity.

Here are the six main energy vampire types out there:
