Attachment is a deep and enduring emotional bond that connects one person to another across time and space – Ainsworth, 1973, Bowlby 1969
But how does this impact our relationships? When we understand people according to their attachment styles, we can understand a lot more about them and how they operate within relationships. These attachment styles we talk about are determined into three key styles, I have taken these definitions from the book Attached, The new science of adult attachment and how it can help you find and keep love, by Amir Levine MD and Rachel Heller ( pg 44 ), as I think they offer an excellent demonstration and explanation of how these styles are characterised.
