Relationships are much more complex than we like to think they are, and sometimes it can be a real challenge in figuring out the truth. Now, an emotional attachment is one of three forms of attachment. Friend attachment is when you both care about each other in a platonic way. Physical attachment is when you both find each other attractive and act on it. Emotional attachment is considered the final stage and where you both are intimate with each other. Where you both are honest with each other, express genuine feelings, and those late night talks that you only have with someone you trust.
