    Doesn't Everyone?

    Sometimes I think it's my worst obsession. I want everyone to feel like they need me so that I can dole out advice or love or whatever it is they're seeking. And I do it for selfish reasons. I want to feel loved, or feel like I have a purpose. But sometimes, when it's genuine...

    I Need

    I yearn to feel necessary and vital to someone's life. Like their day isn't complete if we haven't talked, kissed or made love.

    Miss It

    It's always nice to feel needed by anyone, but I want to feel needed by the one who matters most. I want to know I'm important to her and that she cares. Feeling wanted and needed is great, it's one step down from love, something that I probably won't have anyone feel for me...

    I want to feel needed,

    I haven't in so long. I miss being the first and last thought on someone's mind, to get the random calls and text saying I miss you. I am a very loving kind person it has gotten me hurt but I still am a hopeless romantic deep down searching for my knight!

    I Would Rather Feel Wanted

    need is based out of necessitywant is more of a burning desire it seems to involve a choice where as a need sounds like desperation.choosing me because you want me of your own free will is much more attractive to me than choosing me because you "need" me.
