Attachment styles pop culture video, who are you?
Avoidant 100%. Every 1-3 years starting from the age of 6 I had a new best friend or friend group. It was certainly more enjoyable in the beginning few years because making friends and talking about ideas was easy as a kid, but gradually it just wore on my emotional reserves every year that had passed, & other people had more stable and well-built relations to prefer and fall back on.
I usually act more socially extraverted at first, and I can be very forward and quick with talking to new people. But it's always shocking to me when someone actually ignores my facade and wants to talk about furthering things past discussions and less feely talk.
Beware, the third type is a combination of the avoidant and the anxious. I'm hoping you watched the whole video haha. EDIT: Am I the only one that only watches part of a video then skips?
