There's the romantic "Need" (You complete me, My life is better with you, I couldn't imagine life without you) and the codependent "Need" (I need a man to be complete, I need to not be alone). The difference is one occurs after you've fallen in love and even though its sweet it isn't literal. the other is always there, and is often the reason people end up in bad relationships, and their own self worth depends on being with someone. I never "need" a man, but I have found the one my soul "needs"
Saw this today... pinned & repinned... by loads of ladies. Thing is, we have to be able to flip the words and they still remain true. "Real women stay faithful. They don't have time to look for other men..." I know it's been said & said, but I'm saying it again. If your husband/fiance/boyfriend went to go see a movie about female strippers with his buddies, you would not be ok with it.
