Emotional Vampires, Second Edition
Have you met people who seemed so perfect at first, but later turned out to be a perfect mess? Have you been blinded by brilliant bursts of charm that switched on and off like a cheap sign? Have you heard promises whispered in the night that were forgotten before dawn? Even then do you wonder- is it them or is it me? It’s them. Emotional vampires.
