    to be wanted is a choice, to be needed is an urge.

      Ya. A desire to be needed is more rapey.

      I see like this, if i am needed may be its by a lack of other if i am wanted surely is by a virtue of myself.

      But wanted sounds more like being wanted by police or the FBI while needed means... you know.

      You would always be questioning.. Like wondering if they really want you or if they just keep you around just because they need you... :P

      It does not specify what you are needed for, for all we know it could be for food. I don't know about you guys but I don't want to be eaten. Just my opinion though.

      @Malia Ashley Being wanted could mean they just want you for money or that you're wanted by the police or something. Being needed is like someone not being able to live without you

      To be wanted would seem like a lust or unrequited love sort of thing, though to be needed, would seem like a cherish-able requirement or undying bond

      Being needed all the time sounds like a pain...For example, being needed does not mean that the person who needs you, actually wants you. It is purely out of necessity.

      Or looking at it differently, what if you're only kept around out of necessity- a cold loveless marriage, perhaps.

      Painting the house isn't a need. Breathing, eating, and sleeping is. What you need to survive, nothing more - anything more is a want, only for pure comfort. I don't want dirty, dusty walls, so I'm painting over them. I don't NEED to, though.

      What if they need you but don't (really) want you, like they need you to perform a task or support them economically? If they want you they must actually like you despite they could do without you

      But this is forever like everything on here, unless it gives a specific deadline or end it lasts forever. Now try to imagine that you're incredibly rich and people only need you for your money they constantly ridicule you but they couldn't live with you paying for them (maybe they're on life support or they are disabled) you would be constantly miserable but you wouldn't want them to die ( maybe you would tho idk) but when people want you it's genuine

      @Markthegr8 I dont think you kniw what need means. Saying that you need to paint your house is not literal. Saying a human needs water however is. You might need to paint your house TO pass house inspection. But yeah

      @Stolkmen a want is not temporary and a need isn't forever / needs only exist because we want things, I want to be alive therefor I need to eat, I want that nice TV so I need money to be able to buy it. I want to have a nice life so I need to work hard.

      Being needed is actually more temporary, because as soon as you loose whatever it is someone else needs from you or you do the thing they need you to do then its over, but if someone wants you it means unless you make a drastic change in yourself you will not be left behind

    Being wanted is better than being needed because peopke can't respect the things that they need in life, like daily nutrients, their mothers and fathers, the roof over their heads. Plus it means more when someone can want you for who you are instead of pleading for you to just because they need what you have and need you for reasons.

    If someone wants me it's their own choice.. If someone needs me, it's because of me doing something for them.. If they want me, they like me for who I am.. If they need me, they like me for what I do for them..

    This depends on why and what for. Most likely I'd go with needed, because it implies I'd have to deal with the situation less often. Unless we're talking about relationships. Then that'd get kind of creepy.

    I think 'to be wanted' means people desire you and have a crush on you, where 'to be needed' it means people need a shoulder to cry on, a helping hand, someone they can come to in times of need. I'd rather be the friend than the hunk.

    Being needed is too much pressure. If a person NEEDs you, then they're either co-dependent, or have exhausted all of their other options.

    "needed" has something involuntarily about it... Why be needed, if you can be wanted, do you want someone to be with you because they have to or beacuse they WANT to?

    Criminal Minds logic... If there's a bank robbery and one of the unsubs get shot in the process of escape and they all retreat back into the bank.. I could be a paramedic and the FBI will send me in to patch up the injured unsub so the other unsubs won't shoot me because I'll be needed. >.> but then once you fix the guy you better hope you gotta gun.
