I need love. (or, I need to feel loved)
I would not say, "I need love in order to exist". I would say that given

OK, I mostly-concede. I'm certainly not going to try and debate you on that

I would have thunk that it would be more accurate to say "I need to feel
loved in order to massage my ego, which makes me happy, and I like to feel
happy," but I'll just leave it there.
