The kind of guy to make the guarded girl finally fall in love feels safe, and she hates that at first, because she’s so used to falling for people who make her feel daring, like she’s taking an adventurous risk by giving them a chance.
And maybe these walls protect you from heartbreak and disappointment. Maybe they keep you guarded and practical but they don’t make you feel alive. They don’t make you experience the high that comes with every text, every date, every kiss and every hand you hold.
We are a generation that has programmed everyone to want to be the one to want who cares less.
Love never feels as good when it’s leaving, so let’s not push the ones we love away.
You build temporary relationships that don’t go beyond that, even if you yearn for something more.
She keeps her heart guarded because she feels broken inside. Her past romances have screwed her up, they have given her baggage too heavy to carry.
A guarded woman doesn’t jump into love until you show her it’s okay to fall.
I always keep my guard up, even around people who have proven that they can be trusted. Even around people who swear that they would never hurt me. Even around people who deserve a real chance.
It’s not that you don’t have emotions. You just don’t know how to handle them.
Love hurts and heals. It lasts. Even when you don’t. Even if they don’t.
