It is popular to say, "I want you, but I don't need you." But is that romantic? What's your opinion?

Excellent answer, Janshares. But if you had to choose? That's a tough one!
okay, if I had to pick one - wanted.
You bad girl you. ;) I adore your honesty, janshares!
I couldn't have said it any better than that and so totally agree with you.
I have to say, if someone said to me, "I want you" I would find that vaguely flattering, but if he said "I need you," I would find that unusual. It shows a rare vulnerability---provided he is not "needy." But that is my take....
Thank you for a very spiritual insight on this question, manatita44. It sounds like you are saying that want and need are simply a part of the process, with neither being "negative.
Yes, my Sweet.
Nothing is without purpose. It teaches its own lessons, then we move on. All is in God, and all is useful. Still, seek wisdom, which will dictate when to move on. Being a child is necessary, but then we become grown.
"My sweet" Hmmm. I like the sound of that. Actually, you are sweet to give such an inspiring response.
Do you think, however, that there may be a difference between Need and Needy? Thanks for chiming in Efficient Admin. I appreciate your feedback.
A good, solid answer. I see your point. I sort of look at it as, "Do I need a heart transplant or do I want one?" Sometimes need is OK, but neediness--no way. Thanks for a lovely answer, Faith Reaper.
Interesting take, Jade. Could those things you described also be a want---even more than a need? Thanks for a reflective answer. I do appreciate your having thought about this matter.
