Did You Know? Only 3 types of relationships exist

Understanding your attachment style could be the key to lasting love.

Ever wondered why you choose the wrong guy over and over again?

Conventional wisdom has it that if you pick unavailable men, you’ve got no one but yourself to blame. After all, the only thing they’ve got in common is you, and the fact you keep picking them. But now it seems like it might all be down to whether your attachment style works with his, they say.

What happens in the space between two people is a twofold process. In other words, it’s the dynamic between the two of you that accounts for the quality of a relationship. The key to understanding this dynamic is getting a handle on your attachment style.

There are supposedly three distinct attachment styles: anxious, avoidant and secure.

  • Anxious people crave intimacy, can become preoccupied with relationships, and worry about their partner’s capacity to love them back.
  • Avoidant types prize autonomy over intimacy, and often push their partner away.
  • Secure people feel comfortable getting close and are generous with their affection.

Where we get our attachment styles from is still up for debate. There’s some evidence that it may be genetic, but it could also be tied to the way our parents interacted with us as babies. Either way, these styles are encoded into us at a young age. Some of the first experiments on attachment theory found that by 12 months, you could already tell a child’s attachment style. But that doesn’t mean you’re stuck with your style forever; you can change your default setting, but it will take time and effort.
