If someone is in the position of saying this, it’s because you’re asking and expecting from them even when it’s apparent that they cannot meet your ‘needs requests’.

Add in context to the situation and you really get a sense of what they mean: When a man makes statements like ‘I can’t give you what you want’ and stays in the relationship he’s a lazy man who is reshaping the relationship on his terms and trying to manage down your needs and expectations so that he can get his needs met with minimal contribution while marginalising your own needs.
He is giving you a chance to get out now while you can.
He’s also telling you who he is and trying to make you be real about him and the relationship so that you can opt out.
