The way we connect with other human beings, especially romantic partners, is biologically wired before we are able to talk. This attachment style affects everything from our heart rate, respiration, and stress hormones to the way we perceive the world.
There are two basic attachment styles, "secure" and "insecure." Under the "insecure" style, there are multiple distinct types of insecurity. You might be relieved to know that experts estimate that 50% of all adults have an insecure attachment style. If you feel doomed to repeat the same unhappy relationship patterns over and over again, don't give up! With the right help, anyone can move from an insecure to a secure attachment style.
