Romantic Attachment Styles

There are three primary romantic attachment styles. One quick way to discover your romantic

attachment style is to choose which of the following descriptions best describes you. Take a

minute to do this:

Secure attachment style: I find it relatively easy to get close to others and am comfortable

depending on them and having them depend on me. I do not often worry about being abandoned

or about someone getting close to me.

Avoidant attachment style: I am somewhat uncomfortable being close to others. I find it

difficult to trust them completely and difficult to allow myself to depend on them. I am nervous

when anyone gets too close, and often, love partners want me to be more intimate than I feel

comfortable being.

Anxious/ambivalent attachment style: I find that others are reluctant to get as close as I would

like. I often worry that my partner does not really love me or will not want to stay with me. I

want to merge completely with another person, and this desire sometimes scares people away.

(Kenrick, Neuberg, & Cialdini, 2007 p.270)

In a 2- to 3-page paper discuss the following:

 Based on the above descriptions what romantic attachment style best describes you?

 How has this attachment style affected your past and/or current relationships?

 How has this attachment style also affected your non-romantic relationships?

 Is your romantic attachment style similar to the attachment style you had with your

parents when you were young?

 If it is the same why do you think it has not changed? If it is different what experiences as

an adult do you think lead to this change?

 What type of situations might an adult experience that would shift their childhood

attachment style to a different adult romantic relationship style?

Secure (as a child) to anxious/ambivalent (as an adult)

Avoidant (as a child) to secure (as an adult)

Romantic Attachment Styles

The secure attachment style, avoidant attachment style and the anxious/ ambivalent attachment

style are the three primary romantic attachment styles. These attachment styles depend upon the

kind of care a person may have received during infancy (Attachment Styles, or Comfort with

Intimacy, Influence How People Behave, 2014). After considering and re-considering my

romantic attachment style, I believe that my romantic attachment style is of the first kind, which

is secure attachment style, “I find it relatively easy to get close to others and am comfortable

depending on them and having them depend on me. I do not often worry about being abandoned

or about someone getting close to me” (Kenrick, Neuberg, & Cialdini, 2007 p.270), is the perfect

definition of my kind of romantic attachment style.
