I attract people who can't shut up

... and I'm tired of it. I'm an introvert (though a friendly and sociable one) and pretty easy going. I seem to attract a lot of people into my life who talk a lot, mostly about themselves. Whenever I get together with these people they jabber on and on and on and never shut the fuck up. Occasionally I'll try to interject and say something. Add a thought or two of my own to the "conversation." They'll just look at me blankly as if I was speaking another language. A couple of them will try to be polite and ask me how things are going in my life. I'll speak for a few minutes but it's obvious they couldn't care less and can't wait to continue their monologue. Is it because I'm a "good listener"? Is is because I'm too passive and polite to tell them I don't care about their messed up lives? After I've been with these people I feel completely drained. They're energy vampires.
