Dating someone avoidant personality disorder

I hate to make sweeping statements, but I’m going to: Love Addicts need to avoid Love Avoidants. People who suffer from love avoidance are not good or bad, but they are NOT the best choice for a Love Addict.Of course, I was always attracted to love avoidant men nearly all my life.

But what does this have to do with avoiding the avoidant? Your list of values needs to include, “I will avoid dating partners who neglect or avoid me”. Get clear about not wanting to date someone who exhibits the behavior of an avoidant.

Once we understand who that person we love is, we develop normal attachments that help us communicate our needs, wants, and hopes.

A wife learns that if she talks to her husband after work, she will more than likely be able to get him to fix the garage over the weekend.
