Status Current
Alternative forms Psychological vampirism
Community used by medical, Vampire


An emotional vampire is someone who drains emotional energy without giving anything back. This can make the person being drained very tired, depressed, and emotionally unbalanced. These individuals generally try to draw attention to themselves, crafting elaborate dramas and then demanding emotional support from those around them. This is also known as psychological vampirism, and does not involve any metaphysical elements. Within the vampire community it is considered an insult, though some less ethical psychic vampires engage in similar behavior, feeding off of the emotional energy generated in a more metaphysical sense.
