Could neediness be based off low selfasteem?
Ive found that if i'm feeling needy what ill have to do to counter it is basically dress in clothes that i know i look good in and tell my self that "i look good". its almost like a confidence boost. even if i dont go no where that night just knowing that i look good helps.
Its almost like it raises my value in my head allowing me to get over a stint of mild weakness where i'll want to text a girl that i should be freezing out....or ill began over analyzing stuff or ill put there value above mine.
Ive found im more prone to doing this when my selfasteem isnt where it should be. I highly recommend it to you guys if you start feeling needy.
just stop what you're doing and get in you're best outfit and tell yourself that you look good in the mirror. sounds cheesy but i'm telling you it helps in moments of weakness/neediness.
EDIT: this may be in the wrong area of the forum, if so i apologize.
