“Her heart was a secret garden and her walls were very high”
The guarded girl is basically a girl with a big heart who’s been hurt way too many times. Her beautiful, sweet essence is not gone, it’s just hiding underneath the strong shell that protects her heart. At her core she’s a sweet, warm-hearted, passionate and an extremely loving individual.
She’s built strong walls around her heart but deep down, she just wants to be understood and loved and she also wants to give her heart away deeply and intensely. It just takes a real man to see right through her and love her for who she really is.
She might seem emotionally unavailable but she’s far from lacking emotion. If anything, she feels too much. Her true nature craves passion, she wants to love hard and unconditionally, so be patient with her heart.
This type of girl is not going around playing games, she’s unapologetically honest and direct. She’s not going to put up with any bullshit, so any signs that your intentions might be potentially harmful to her soul, and she won’t even bother giving you the time a day.
She’s not cold-hearted, she’s just guarded and there’s a difference. Her trust issues prevent her from being fully open about her emotions at first, but that doesn’t mean she won’t eventually open up and allow you to see her for who she truly is.
She’s a great listener and also highly observant, so don’t try to deceive her in any way. She pays attention to everything around her, because she knows that there’s always more than meets the eye. Remember, she’s been fooled and hurt a lot so, she’s a master at reading people.
She’s super selective with people and she will never apologize for protecting her heart.
The girl with a guarded heart takes a while to commit, but once she knows that her feelings for you are real and that they’re reciprocated, she’ll slowly become more and more trusting, open and loving.
Don’t doubt her feelings, just be honest, gentle and patient with her emotions. Her heart is in the right place and she just needs to be certain that you’re deserving of her love. She might seem tough and intimidating but she’s really a sweet soul, so be sure that once she knows that you’re the right person for her, she’ll love you with all of her being.
