Why are we attracted to some people and not others even though they may have all the right stuff? Why do we still crave long-term bonds? The age-old question of how to find the “right one” in a relationship has been asked since time began, and we are now closer to learning the answer based on scientific research.  In their groundbreaking book, Levine and Heller describe three different attachment styles or ways of relating.  These attachment styles, according to the authors, define how you view intimacy and togetherness, deal with conflict, think about sex and communicate your wishes and needs and what you expect from your partner and the relationship. Furthermore, these styles make it easy to predict people’s behavior in any romantic situation. We’ve all met the guy who says he’ll call and then disappear without a trace, the woman who clings to that man who’s just not that into her, the man who has been with a woman for years, but feels completely alone. Levine and Heller’s new discovery about relationships provides the straightforward explanation for all of these issues and more.  Join the conversations live or send your thoughts and comments to TheArtofRelating@hotmail.com
