An anxious-avoidant relationship is one in which one person has an anxious attachment to another person, who is avoidant. Anxious attachment generally comes from a place of seeking out closeness and intimacy with others. This person tries very hard to avoid rejection and abandonment. On the other hand, the avoidant person seeks a level of emotional distance that conflicts with their anxiously attached partner. Relationships like this are difficult to navigate when both partners have different and conflicting desires. Are you interested in more relationship dynamics and styles? How one relationship style affects another and vice versa?
