What can I do about this? Is this something to do with my personality? Childhood trauma.

I have been in your situation and can say she wasn't the one who could tap into that place where you could feel vulnerable. I was in long term relationships (one was 10 years) but I never fell in love until I was 37. It just clicked. I am a very private person and never opened up before but when the right person came along I really didn't have a choice. With the exception I knew this was the right person I could be that way with and I allowed myself to open up. It was a conscious decision. If you struggle like I did, you must give yourself permission and more than once until you actually let the person in.

Speak with someone... you obviously need to identify and overcome what ever it is standing in your way and for anyone to help you with that, there would need to be hours of back and forth. You won't be able to ask a deep and complicated question like this and find an answer that can actually help; not through these methods in any case.
