E!’s Famously Single Dating Expert On Wants Vs. Needs

If your love life isn’t where you want it to be, then you may be searching too hard for what you want, instead of what you need. The list of “must-haves” that you judge every potential partner by, is actually just a list of preferences and aren’t essential to a lasting relationship. “You need someone who makes you feel like a priority and communicates with you,” the dating expert shares. But you don’t necessarily need that person to be tall, dark, and handsome.

Start looking at your needs as sexy. It’s sexy when your honey shows up physically and emotionally for you. It’s sexy when your love is kind to you and respects you. It’s attractive when you share the same core values. If you don’t have your needs met, the connection won’t last. “Get your needs met and your wants will be fulfilled,” House says.
