If you are dating someone with an anxious attachment style, relationship bliss isn’t necessarily doomed.You just have to understand that their wiring is different from yours, and that they require higher levels of intimacy and closeness than people with secure attachment styles.They have a unique ability to sense when their relationship is being threatened.
He or she then chooses someone who is more possessive or overly demanding of attention.
An attachment pattern is established in early childhood attachments and continues to function as a working model for relationships in adulthood.
This model of attachment influences how each of us reacts to our needs and how we go about getting them met.
Our style of attachment affects everything from our partner selection to how well our relationships progress to, sadly, how they end.
That is why recognizing our attachment pattern can help us understand our strengths and vulnerabilities in a relationship.
Many theorists attribute an anxious attachment style to inconsistent caregiving, where the baby/child never knew if they would have their needs met.
