Emotional vampire is a metaphor used to describe certain individuals who constantly drain the emotions and energy of their partners, leaving them feeling exhausted. These emotional vampires have a psychological dynamic called "narcissistic supply," which means that they believe that they are the most important people in the world and will do whatever they can to direct the attention and energy of others towards themselves for their own benefit, without considering the impact of their actions on others.

In addition to "narcissistic supply," there are three common characteristics that can help identify emotional vampires:

1.Concealed attacks and manipulation for personal gain.

2.Tendency to play the victim.

3.Refusal to take responsibility for their actions.

When dealing with emotional vampires, it is important to be vigilant and take measures to protect your own emotions and energy.
