I don’t even know what the impetus for this idea was. I just started a post and saved it as a draft with the title Relationship Mooch.
I’m sure there might be a more technical term for it, but it’s a passionless person – a passion stealer. Remember in the Italian Job, Edward Norton would steal the dreams of everyone else on the team – yeah – that’s what I’m talking about. Someone that just mooches off of his relationships. Nothing is original. Nothing is his. He just steals passion, dreams, and attention for himself. Relationship Mooch.
The thing is – you have to feel sad for this person. They are so much about stealing other people’s ideas and dreams and it produces 2 consequences.
1. They don’t have friends.
2. Their life is about stealing other people’s dreams and passions – ergo they don’t have friends.
If you a relationship mooch, you can come steal some of my dreams and passions. They’re pretty good.
