Vulnerability is A Must
Love requires vulnerability. You truly have to give the other person the ability to hurt you IF you want to connect with them on a level beyond the superficial. The only thing you can do is work on your discernment and curate a list of deal-breakers to lessen your chances of getting burned. But ultimately you have to be vulnerable. Heartbreak is ultimately inevitable though, and wolves in sheep’s clothing are everywhere. This is life.
