    Mix up with нужен...

    ты мне нужна. это я тебе ненужен.

    Does this mean: I need you, and you don't need me??
    Or: You need me, and I don't need you??

    Isn't the translation "It's that you don't need me" better?..
    Just of curiosity.
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    Семантика, имхо.
    Если очень нужен дословный перевод, я бы предложила "It's you who don't need me".
