I get the feeling im one of those said guys. I've been told I have these walls up, so my question is, would a girl give a guy whos emotionally turned off a shot at dating. Do women enjoy trying to open a guy up emotionally?

Actually, most women prefer quiet, brooding types of men. They like being the only one who you open up to and act yourself around. It makes them feel special, you know?
Personally, I love a guy who laughs and acts boyish. But from my experience, I'm in the minority... most girls associate seriousness with masculinity and whatnot. I seriously wouldn't worry if I were you. My brothers are just like that (serious, shy/awkward, closed off) and plenty of girls like them. *shrugs*1

I agree with ForReals23. Somewhere in the middle is where you want to be. A woman's job in a relationship is to empathize with you. This is how woman have an emotional connection with you. Too little emotion and there's not much to empathize with. Too much would be an overload of emotions, which can be seen as not having enough masculinity. I totally understand where you are coming from as I am currently going through the same thing. I've heard that a good way to overcome this is to find a female friend that can be viewed as a "sister" type that you can talk with just about anything. I'll be trying that myself. And yes, women do enjoy opening a guy up emotionally.0
