WOW – Relationships

Each individual’s ability to form and maintain relationship using this “emotional glue” is different. Some people seem “naturally” capable of loving. They form numerous intimate and caring relationships and, in doing so, get pleasure. Others are not so lucky.  They feel no “pull” for form intimate relationships, find little pleasure in being with or close to others.  They have few, in any, friends and more distant, less emotional glue with family.  In extreme cases an individual may have no intact emotional bond to any other person.  They are self-absorbed aloof or may even present with classic neuropsychiatric signs of being schizoid or autistic. .  Reference Bruce Perry – Bonding and Attachment in Maltreated Children
