So many people who have been hurt in a relationship take steps to protect themselves from it again. What are your tricks? But are they really just preventing you from being fully emotionally available? Do they really work or do they become 'playing the game'
Do you just have to accept that getting hurt is a consiquence of opening yourself up to someone? Should that pain then just remind us that we are capable of loving with such intensity, and of itself is beautiful?

Well I'll be honest I had an ex that just had that 'something about him' and we broke up just because he said he loved me. I was heart broken and fell for him head over heels and pretty much compare everyone to him. We never fought, he never expected anything out of me and I didn't out of him, and we got along so well. Its hard to believe I dated someone on a rebound for a year and to this point can't get over him. I think sometimes people have that 'something about them' and that's what makes it worse.1
