So here's a dirty little secret: I'm pretty needy when it comes to relationships.

I wouldn't say that you are needy. This what you like and want. There is nothing wrong with that at all. So why are you settling for this guy if you are going to feel dismayed?

I know what you mean, I like intimate conversations and talking about hope and dreams. I don't view that as being needy. Being needy means you demand constant reassurance that they love you and don't trust them. Wanting nice conversation without having give up who you are is not needy.
