January 12
11am to 12pm Pacific Time

Individuals who have Dismissive-Avoidant attachment have learned to keep their own needs below their level of awareness and to take care of themselves. In relationships, they maintain emotional distance and tend to experience their partners bids for connection as needy and childish. They feel like they are self-sufficient and don’t understand why their partner “needs” them.
