In a romantic relationship, would you rather be wanted or needed?


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!

    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.

    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.
