Yah there is. saying "I love you because I need you" is that the person just say what the other person needs to hear. While, saying "I need you because I love you" is that the person complement that other person. Hope it suffice your question.

Need and love are two different things. Love does not care and look any thing like need. You can love a person, who is far away of you. Need is something required to some one. A needy person is that who has some thing less with him. A needy person is that who not posses a thing and he want to get some thing. But love does not require getting some thing or some one. It is name of emotions. Love could be felt; it could not understood or explained. It is a name of feelings and affections. It is not materialistic thing which some one needs to get.

yes there is a big difference.. Saying I love you because I need you (this phrase is like a user thing) you know, you are being loved because you're needed for something or you're there because you're very useful to the person.. Saying I need you because I love you (this is so sweet!) you're needed because he loves you! it's like you're his reason for living! He cannot live life if not around. You have become a part of him. I hope I made some light..:)

i heard this on tv before "mature love says i need you because i love you and immature love says i love you because i need you." if you think about it, it is true because you cannot love a person just because you need him/her, you have to love that person for who and what he/she is.

I think you hit it right on. You depend on someone and therefore love them. BUT when you really love them, you need them because you don't wanna live without that person not what they can do for you.

I guess, it is better and safe to say I need you because I love you. Because your need is based on your love. You start loving first the person and that resulted to your need for that person.

"I love you because I need you." To me this doesn't sound like love at all. Whoever says this sounds as if they are totally dependent on this other person. They are relying on this person to serve their best interests and generally can't support themselves emotionally. "I need you because I love you." This sounds like genuine love. Of course you need someone you truly love.
