Am I the only one who NEEDS their man?

Posted by   + Show Post
I was chit chatting on another post about my dependency or need for my bf, that he is why my life is so amazing. He brings out the best in me, he is the reason I'm a better person. He saved me basically, I was going down a horrible path. because he didn't put up with my lies or being a drunk, he didn't let me play head games or mess around on him. I had never had someone love me so much that if i cheated on them would actually care. Sssoooo thoughts....

I'm pretty sure I need my hubby, I can't really imagine my life without him.  But I guess I don't need him in a clingy, dependent way.  If something happened, I'd be fine on my own......

Immature love: I love you because I need you

Mature love: I love you because I want/choose you

I don't need my husband. I choose him. I want him.


 I agree with this completely.  If you can't be a good person without someone "making" you be good - you're being controlled.  That is a classic sign of abuse.

for me it's less of a need, than a want. I want him in my life because he makes it amazing, but if anything were to happen I could be on my own.

I don't need mine, but I'm glad he's part of my life.

I "need" my husband in my life because he's my best friend and I can't imagine not having my best friend around

That being said...I don't "need" him in the sense that I would sudden be on drugs and stuff if he was gone

 I don't "need" my husband in the sense that if he weren't here, I could provide for myself and our daughter.

I want to be with my husband because I love him and we have made a life and family together.

I'm me, no matter who is in my life. If df left today, I'd still be myself. I'd be miserable and lonely for a while, but I wouldn't fall apart. You need to be strong, not rely on someone else to be your strength. Its so sad that some women don't get that.

I don't NEED my husband. I'm madly in love with him, love being with him but if he left me I wouldn't shrivel up and die. I would move on with my life.

I don't need my husband in order to be happy. We each generate our own happiness and share it.
