haha Good thing my husband didn't notice when we first met. I'm not a needy person. I am quite independent but sometimes can be insecure within myself. I think all people have these feelings don't they? I would say that if you are that confident and cocky (ha) then never fear, because one day the time will come where you'll be knocked down a peg or two and brought straight down to earth, the place where I sometimes live.
Yes, good points. I think the key is to get someone to like you without displaying any degree of distress beyond normal (polite?) concern about whether they do or not. I have made the mistake of being overly-concerned about whether someone liked me many times myself. Then, I realized that itself was an even bigger mistake.
My husband put it that way: "I need you to need me, but not to be needy". Made me go
I kind of relate to that but I will put it this way:
I need my somebody close to me but I don't want anybody be so dependent on me that they are literally hanging on me (the children are exception of course ). Suffocating love does not suit me (or anybody else I think). By suffocating me you make sure I will run and fast.
