We are kicking season 5 off with Dr. Duana Welch to discuss attachment styles and dating!
Have you ever experienced the following?
· You felt an initial spark, but got turned off when he/she came on too strong.
· Someone ghosted you after what you thought was the beginning of a very happy relationship.
· You found yourself bored by someone who is stable and kind.
If so, your attachment style may have played a part!
According to developmental psychologists, the bond you form with your primary caregiver in childhood sets the tone for the way you connect to others in adulthood. Dr. Duana Welch, author of Love Factually: Attachment Style Dating Made Easier, explains the difference between Secure, Anxious, and Avoidant attachment and the pros and cons of each—spoiler alert, there are positives to anxious attachment!—along with how an understanding of our attachment style can help us get the love we desire!
