If you ever connect with someone in life, when does it get to the point where people start expecting you to help them emotionally .

In the initial stages of courtship, few things are as unsexy as someone who is exceptionally needy in the emotion department.

I want a girl with a mind like a diamond. I want a girl who knows what’s best.

As intimacy grows, people expect more of each other in a relationship. That includes emotional support.

Where it is unhealthy is if one person is too needy or puts the entire burden for their emotional happiness on the other person.

If that seems to happen to you a lot, it might be a pattern that you are seeking out needy people.

Maybe this is weird, but I expect to provide emotional support to just about anybody I interact with who is more than an acquaintance. It’s part of being a caring person. Sometimes I’ll even provide support to strangers.

Like @marinelife, I say people’s expectations grow and they admit/show their needs as a relationship grows.

I want a girl with the right allocations
Who’s fast and thorough
And sharp as a tack
She’s playing with her jewelry
She’s putting up her hair
She’s touring the facility
And picking up slack
