    No, not when I'm healthy. I'm pretty independent and emotionally stubborn, as in someone might have to gently force their way in to help me emotionally.

    I do like attention at times though, like cuddling and playing around. I usually let my partner know I want this in playful ways, like gently messing with his physical space or acting play-bratty/innocent. He likes it, so I guess we're a good match.

    None of this is to say I'm not ever emotional or hard to please though, just not needy.

    No. It would be hard to be more on the loner side of social dynamics if you’re constantly seeking emotional support and validation from other people. I spend large amounts of time alone.

    I don't think I'm anymore emotionally needy than anyone else. I'm average on the scale of it I guessed.

    I do require external feedback in my life though. But it's not really for emotional support. I just need validation that I'm doing whatever it is properly because I'm always over thinking, second guessing myself, and over complicating things.

    only when it is indulged; it sort of recedes into the background otherwise... it's a lot like nicotine addiction... you only miss it so long when it's gone, but you'll still think about it now and then when you see someone smoking...

    Maybe. I mean. I try not to be but... maybe. Im not as good at not needing people as I like to pretend I an. But because I try not to need people Im probably less emotionally needy irl than most people- probably a good deal less than most people irl. On here... Im needier than I am irl. But I dont want to be too needy. Im working on understanding what is ok- and how to balance all this/

    I hate sharing my feelings, and I don't really like other people's feelings. Like, not because I don't care, but because I don't know how to handle them. I want to help them, but I don't know what to say. I still want people to feel like they can come to me with their problems, but I don't think I'm of too too much use in that respect. Maybe I'm too critical of myself in this respect 🤷.

    Eh, my confidence in my intelligence is still a bit shaky at times, and is an area I can find a need for outside validation, like whenever coming up with new ideas or thoughts, I might just throw them out there to see how they're received.

    If I'm not in a good place emotionally and my thoughts are immediately shot down by someone I am closer to, it can impact me a bit. Usually I only take things more personally from those I trust and have let in, otherwise the shit usually goes unnoticed.

    Emotional validation? No, not at all. That area, I have high confidence in and am content amongst a crowd as I am doing my own thing and wandering on some personal adventure

    I have my moments, yet for the most part I don't verbalize them when I am. I'm used to not having much emotional support, thus learning to keep most of my thoughts related to that compartmentalized in the sunken place.

    I hate feeling needy. I want to be independent, and I don't want others to feel like I'm making them less independent than they could be. Hence I try to never be needy. I think I'm pretty successful in this respect.
