    another person

    1. Doesn't it have to be "the other" considering the relationship beween two lovers? Does it mean a third person?
    2. In "having that person feel", does "have" mean "let or allow" or "possess"? Depending on which meaning it is, the interpretion would be quite different.

    p2)According to the attachment theory of love, adults are characterized, in their romantic relationships, by one of three styles...Secure lovers do not fear abandonment. In contrast, avoidant lovers are uncomfortable feeling close to another person or having that person feel close to them. It is difficult for avoidant lovers...

    Neither is correct.

    It just means that they are in a situation in which this thing happens to them.

    My wife had her handbag stolen yesterday.
    I had a waiter shouting at me yesterday, a most unusual experience her.

    Re: another person

    It seems to deal with the relationship between two lovers, so "the other" seems to fit. I don't know why "another" is used here.

    Re: another person

    Avoidant lovers may be uncomfortable feeling close to any other person.
