My girlfriend just stormed out on me because I won't open up to her. I guess she's right but I don't really know how to. I have never trusted anyone and when I try the words won't come out. I love her. I have never really had a father figure in my life but what I have learnt is that vulnerability is weakness.
I know it sounds like an easy thing to do but I have no idea how. Help/advice is appreciated,
P. S. We are both 20 and in university.

Opening up to someone is never an easy thing to do and in order to feel comfortable opening up to someone else, you first need to be completely honest to yourself about why you have trouble opening up. I understand that this is a seriously difficult thing to do, having had major trust issues myself, but once I was able to do so, I found that all aspects of my life improved, including my relationship... however, having said this, if your girlfriend can't understand that you need time in order to trust her, then maybe you need to talk to her and explain that you have difficulty trusting not just her, but people in general. If she still doesn't try to be more understanding, then maybe you need a new girlfriend who can understand.
Sorry if I went off on a bit of a rant there btw! :p0
