A guarded heart is one that has been through one traumatic experience after another, leaving a person unable to open up to new friends and loved ones easily.

Because of this, we enjoy being alone much more than others may.

Meeting new people is a draining process because we have to keep our guard up at all times until we are sure we can trust somebody.

When dating someone with a guarded heart, understand they would rather spend a quiet night on the couch with you than out with a group of friends.

Since it’s incredibly hard for us to trust anyone, we don’t dive into relationships head first.

In fact, we’re often scared when we find ourselves liking somebody enough to possibly begin a relationship with them.

Unfortunately, having been hurt in the past has led us to be untrusting of ourselves, and we will always second guess ourselves when start to be attracted to a certain someone.But if you don’t mind wading into a relationship with us, it will show you’re able to accommodate to our needs.Just because we take it slow doesn’t mean we don’t fall easily. Those of us with guarded hearts have most likely fallen in love too quickly in the past and ended up getting hurt.However, despite having learned from our bad experience, it’s in our nature to fall for anyone who treats us well from the get-go.Of course, this leads to conflicting feelings of whether or not we can trust the person we’re currently interested in.It should be clear by now that people with guarded hearts have a tough time trusting others.
