For me I'd rather choose the man i need because i love him rather that u love him because u just need him...there are some situations especially in partners that they jst love their partner because u want something from him,u just love ur partner for what he/she have rather than what he/she are..ayt?

If I'm not wrong, those sentences are from Erich Fromm. He's a great philosopher. Those are about the maturity of love. Childish love said that I love you because I need you. And it is a mature love that said, I need you because i love you. I think we should grow up to have a mature love.

I think we need all the time of our life to have mature love. Maybe untill the end of our life we won't be mature enough in love. But we may not stop trying and growing up.

i read that in a book, can't remember the name of it thou. but it does make sense, take a step from your relationship and have a look at things and your partners attuide. i found it made more sense at that point.

yes u can really find it in any refernce my dear..but i was trying to imply here the real situations of every relationships rather than reading books..Atleast wen you put it in here u can really feel the feelings of others based on their experiences..

i have trouble describing things, and can mainly describe things from experience. i can see my partner only loves me cause he needs me. he's spoilt rotten, and doesn't apreceiate what i do for him, most blokes would be in heaven. that make sense?

It should be 'I need you because I love you'. I for one, don't want to be loved because I can do something for him nor because of this and that, but rather because he simply cannot be complete without me. I know my man had said something similar to me, but I also believe that it is not that easy to assert and live up to.
