Past research has found relational and sexual differences among secure, avoidant, and anxiously attached individuals. In the current study, attachment styles were examined in three different relationship types; romantic relationships exclusive partner, fiance, or spousefriends with benefits a friend whom you have sex with on an ongoing basis but do not feel a sense of commitment or romanceand casual encounters casual acquaintance or stranger whom you have a sexual encounter only once.
It was predicted that due to the differences between each of these relational styles, specific patterns would emerge in the attachment styles of those involved.
Specifically, individuals in a romantic relationship would be more likely to be securely attached, individuals in friends with benefits would be more likely to be anxiously attached, and individuals in casual encounters would be more likely to be avoidantly attached. A sample of college participants completed a questionnaire about their current relationship and attachment style.
No differences were found between FWB and casual encounter attachment scores. Zangar, Kristen R. Advanced Search. Privacy Copyright.
