Attachment styles

There are four different attachment styles: secure, anxious-preoccupied, dismissive-avoidant, and fearful-avoidant. (Depending on the source, these names may vary)

Every human has at least one of these attachment styles, but most of us show more than one trait. These attachment styles most commonly form in our childhood and describe the patterns of how we connect with others, especially romantic partners. But they can also change over time when we’re adults, either by working on ourselves or by events out of our control. Traumatic experiences can have a heavy impact on our attachment style.

Secure attachment

People with a secure attachment style have a positive view of themselves and of others as well. It is pretty easy for them to become emotionally close to others. They don’t mind being alone, but they also most likely have greater satisfaction in relationships than adults with other attachment styles.

This is what most people strive for. But don’t fear having an insecure attachment style; in fact, most people don’t have a pure secure attachment style but rather a mix.

Anxious attachment

People with an anxious-preoccupied attachment style tend to have a negative view of themselves and a positive view of others. Most of the time, they want to be completely emotionally intimate with others but sadly often feel that others don’t value them as much as they value them. It’s hard for someone with an anxious-preoccupied attachment style to be alone.

Avoidant attachment

People with a dismissive-avoidant attachment style are rather alone than in a relationship. They have a positive view of themselves and a negative view of others. It is important to them to feel independent and self-sufficient. They tend to suppress and hide their feelings. When they are hurt, they distance them from the sources that caused that pain.

Fearful avoidant attachment

People with a fearful-avoidant attachment style are in constant ups and downs. Even though they want emotionally close relationships, they find it difficult to trust others or depend on them entirely. The fear of getting hurt is too big. Emotional closeness makes them nervous. They often see themselves as unworthy and hardly trust their romantic partners. Showing affection is something they rarely do.
