Whenever an individual experiences attachment problem, from early deprivations in parenting or painful dating experiences all the way to traumatic events, they may find themselves avoiding or sabotaging romantic relationships. Humans have a natural instinct to bond, to find a mate or companion, but at the same time, can also fear the bonding itself. There may be an actual fear of getting close, being abandoned, or a deeply held fear of getting either rejected or engulfed. Some of us can feel a sense of being chased and then let down. We might experience aloneness when together with another person, feeling an absence of a deep sense of connection, even though we may be side-by-side. Conversation can be lacking and sexual intimacy disconnected.
