Attachment Styles, Physical Proximity, and Relational Satisfaction This study aimed to explore the relationships between attachment styles,proximity, and relational satisfaction. This was achieved by assessing adistinct type of long distance romantic relationship of flying crews, comparedwith proximal (non-flying crew) romantic relationships. The responses of 139expatriate professionals revealed significant associations between proximity andanxious and avoidant attachment dimensions. The role of the avoidant dimensionin comparison with that of the anxious dimension was found to be a significantpredictor of relational satisfaction. This study contributes significantlytoward addressing the role of proximity and attachment in relationalsatisfaction in a new context of geographic separation. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aviation Psychology and Applied Human Factors American Psychological Association

Abstract

This study aimed to explore the relationships between attachment styles,proximity, and relational satisfaction. This was achieved by assessing adistinct type of long distance romantic relationship of flying crews, comparedwith proximal (non-flying crew) romantic relationships. The responses of 139expatriate professionals revealed significant associations between proximity andanxious and avoidant attachment dimensions. The role of the avoidant dimensionin comparison with that of the anxious dimension was found to be a significantpredictor of relational satisfaction. This study contributes significantlytoward addressing the role of proximity and attachment in relationalsatisfaction in a new context of geographic separation.
