How we interact in relationships can depend on our attachment styles. Attachment begins in early childhood, is affected by our caregivers, and carries throughout our lifetime. There are 4 types of attachment.

1. Secure- you feel secure, connected, and that you and your partner are free to be yourselves.

2. Anxious Preoccupied- you may be seeking security, but you act in a way that pushes away your partner.

3. Dismissive Avoidant- you may be likely to isolate yourself and focus more on yourself.

4. Fearful Avoidant- you may be worried about being too close or too distant with your partner.

This article is a big help in detailing the different attachment styles. https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/compassion-matters/201307/how-your-attachment-style-impacts-your-relationship
