Attachment Styles: Favorite Male Characters

Jake Ryan from “16 Candles” – Secure

Oh, Jake. The mere mention of his name sends girls swooning. When the most popular boy in school repeatedly tries to connect with sophomore-wallflower Samantha, she nervously pushes him away. But Jake doesn’t dismiss her or demand to know why she isn’t falling all over him. He quietly bides his time (and gets her underwear back from Farmer Ted!) until she’s ready to accept that Jake does in fact like her.
