Sharing personal information brings people closer together. But how do you know when you’ve gone too far—or when someone else has ulterior motives?
Verified by Psychology Today
I am different depending on the person.
With my family, I have a defensive-avoidant attachment style but in my relationships, I have a mildly anxious-preoccupied attachment.
In other words, I feel very detached from my family and friends, but tend to get overly attached very quickly in my dating life.
I'm gay, 24 years old, came out of the closet less than 2 years ago, not sure if that would have anything to do with it. Divorced parents, only saw my dad once a month growing up. I have a good relationship with both, other than the fact that I feel no attachment. I live on the opposite side of the country, and never feel homesick.
